@@calgarybride2015 that sounds like so much fun! Is there dancing? If there is, just dance up a storm and get some cardio while there lol. And one meal won't ruin your hard work, as long as you don't go crazy. But we all know that's easier said than done. Post pics please, I'd love to see your outfit

Thanks @@Wafflesmom

I think it's more just because it happens so close to weight in.

 

Apparently there is dancing, aerial dancers, artists drawing, scotch tasting and much more. It's a whole red carpet affair. We shall see what other surprises are in store. I work for non profit so it's all to help our clinic :)

 

I was a bit nervous about what to wear as I didn't wanna spend tonnes of money on something I'll never wear again! I borrowed a black sleeveless dress from my friend. I've purchased a head band with bird cage, long pearls, a boa, lace gloves and fish net stockings! Should play the part well enough!!!

So it's Thursday and time for the weekly check-in. I'm happy to say that I accomplished my exercise goal of working out 4x this week, bootcamp on Monday and Wednesday, and Pilates Tuesday and today!! I feel so good! I wasn't do good with my diet though and didn't pack lunch at all. I chose healthier options from the cafeteria but it would have been better if I brought my own lunch. I've also been snacking more often so I should curb that.

 

For wedding goals, I've filled out all my legal forms and other forms for our resort and I'll be sending that off tomorrow. I neglected my OOT bags but I'll work on that this weekend.

 

So for my goals next week:

- definitely eat better and meal prep all week, especially for work

- workout at least 4x and since Der has his bachelor party this weekend, I think I'm gonna add an additional session of each, bootcamp on Saturday and Pilates on Sunday. So hoping for 6 exercise sessions.between that and eating better, hopefully that will make up for my last two weeks of unhealthy snacking

- for wedding planning goals I plan on shopping for OOT bag items (I really need to get these), work on tags for the place cards and OOT bags, review our PO which I'm supposed to get this week and with the help of @, finish our table number displays.

 

Wish me luck!

@@Wafflesmom well done with all those workouts! That's fantastic! You are crushing it! You'll really see the difference when you curb snacking and you wallet will thank you for packing lunches haha.

 

My update. Mentally I feel like I faked this week. I worked out Monday and Tuesday. The rest of my week I've been so exhausted and it's affected my fitness and nutrition. I caved and ate chips on Monday, Wednesday I had a big bowl of pasta and didn't workout, last night I ate pho and didn't workout. I seem to fail as soon as I get home from work. I eat super clean and healthy all day, then I'm weak when I get home. I've been sticking to 21 day fix with my new cook book (it's called Fixate) but I don't stick to it with dinners which I'm sure will kill my results. I also have cupcake tasting tomorrow morning or my ARH and that won't work well with my diet. I intend to get back to it and stay committed ALL day every day

Didn't need to worry about going crazy! I thought it was a sit down dinner and it was not!

I probably still went over because they cook yummy things with so much butter and oil, etc.

but all I had was...

 

- one little ball of sorts (not sure what it was)

- one little bread with pesto/bruschetta like topping on it

- one little cake dessert

- small glass of champagne

I'm down another .4 which is great since I went hog wild last Saturday lol (birthday party with cake, movies with popcorn - you get the idea). I am at 7.4 total I believe....

 

This is the week I start training for my other job... so my morning gym routine is going bye bye!!!!  Going to take a lot to get me to the gym in the evening, especially with my school work but I plan to commit to twice a week...

 

Diet will be spot on.

 

Have a great week ladies.

So I weighed in today (a day late) and I'm down 0.8 since I did my 3 day quick fix. It might not sound like a lot but I'm super happy with that considering the week I had. Today I did really well with diet and exercise (leg day). Even though we had cupcake tasting I was very good with it. We had 4 cupcakes that we divide 3 ways and I only ate a portion of each piece I got. (I case your curious we are getting coconut cupcakes with coconut icing/ and vanilla cupcakes with cream cheese icing!) feeling good! Even bought some new jeans!!

Love me some cupcakes. Dare I ask where this one is, as a fellow calgarian? I've not found a place yet that beats Crave but always open to try :) @@yycbride2016

 

Ohh and love coconut cupcakes :)

 

Good job!

Hi ladies - Have not checked in for 2 (?) weeks! I was away for work from Tuesday to Tuesday. First time in my life that I booked hotels based on gym facilities lol. Last week managed to get all my workouts in but one. Was pretty pleased with that. Def did not stick to diet - but had some amazing dinners in Chicago! And I was really good with my breakfasts - buying yogurt and fruit from grocery stores rather than eating hotel breakfasts. I actually managed to still lose about .5 lb!

 

It's been hard trying to get organized since I got back on Tuesday. But managed to get some food prep done that afternoon and also did 4 workouts this week (should be 6). Not great but not bad. Life happens, right?

 

This weekend we are taking 3 days off together (we usually only get 1 day). So it's a bit of a mini break and definitely indulging more than I should. But we are knocking things off the wedding to-do list. Today bought our bands and registered at The Bay. And walked 6km to get there :) but then treated ourselves to wine and dinner at the Keg. Yum. So def hit and miss.

 

Prepping to get back into the swing of things next week and sticking with it until the next biz trip in mid November. Hope everyone is doing well. I haven't really kept up with posts so hope I haven't missed anything big. Did someone mention protein crepes? Can you send the recipe?

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
