So this week has been a good week for me in terms of workouts and diet. My bridal party and I completed our first barre class last Sunday and OMG it was awesome! The first 15 minutes were all about arms using light weights (2lb and 3lbs). At first I laughed at the weights but I am so glad I didn't get anything heavier. The instructor basically had us keep our arms up doing various arm exercises the whole time. There would be times we'd do bicep curls (and pulse for 8 counts), then on to triceps, and it kept going for 15 minutes. After that, we did 30 minutes of leg work. I had to close my eyes a few times to get through the pain. My calves were super sore until yesterday! After we did 10 minutes of abs (yay) and 5 to stretch. Would I do it again? YUP So we all had so much fun that my bridal party and I are now doing a weekly (Sunday) workout class together (different ones) to get fit for the wedding. It's a great way to get in shape while counting down to the wedding. This Sunday we're doing interval training at one of the community centres and then I think we're doing yoga the week after.

 

On top of that, I've maintained my meal prep which has been so good for me, both health-wise and financially. I continued with my normal workout routine of bootcamp (Monday and yesterday), and pilates today. I opted out of pilates on Tuesday as my calves were in so much pain. Thought a rest day would be good, especially since I wanted to make sure I could make it out for bootcamp the following day.

 

As for wedding-related accomplishments, we picked up Der's suit. It's ready to go, pressed and altered :) Our final payments are due today and it's been such a big cause of stress for me. For those who follow my thread, my TA has gotten significantly better and I'm much happier with him now.

 

So goals for the upcoming week:

- continue to meal prep

- continue normal workout routine (2x bootcamp and 2x pilates)

- add an additional workout routine with the bridal party

- finalize guest count so as to finalize all vendor POs

- make final payment on Moon Palace PO

- make final payment for the trip

- with finalized guest count, finish OOT bags

 

That should keep me busy! LOL

 

How are you all doing?

Good job @@Wafflesmom

Sounds like an arse kicker. I've scoffed at weights before then ate my words :)

 

 

You'll be busy but keeps your mind occupied

 

I've been good with food but gym is lacking. I just have NO time with school and work ugh. Hate my second class so hard to stay motivated.

 

Have a BM in town for the weekend so lots of bad stuff to be consumed but then back on it.

 

Kinda early for me but today was down 11 ish lbs! Jeans are starting to be wearable and not cause a stomach ache for being so snug yay!

@@calgarybride2015 I'm so glad I chose to follow the instructor and not get cocky about weights. I would have died lol!

 

You have such a hectic schedule so don't be hard on yourself. Stay strong though and keep Cuba in the back of your head when you have cravings for bad food ;)

 

And congrats on 11lbs, that's awesome! Snug jeans are so uncomfortable so yay to weight-loss :)

@@Wafflesmom - I love that you are working out with your bridal party! So fun and motivating. It sounds like you had an awesome week. Good work! I hope no one dropped out at the final payment due date. Ours is coming up and wondering if that will happen...

 

@@calgarybride2015 Woo hoo! 11 lbs. That's awesome, esp with the crazy schedule you've been dealing with.

Um, ladies! What happened to our thread?!? I thought I had been AWOL, but no more so than the rest of you, it appears.  :huh:

 

Here's a question to get this going again (I hope)... what is your plan to stay on track (either fitness/nutrition or wedding) over the holidays? It gets so crazy busy and, of course, there is the food, the parties, the booze, the CHOCOLATE! Argh. And this is my busiest time of year at work, plus I'm training a brand new coordinator (so not only am I training her, but she's not yet trained to do the work that my old coordinator would have covered for me). 

 

On the fitness/nutrition front, I'm happy to say I've now lost 11 lbs in 11 weeks. My goal is 20, but I'm pretty excited about getting over the 10 lb mark. And my clothes are fitting better, etc. I have an appt with a seamstress the week of Dec 14. She is going to make my dress, so I wanted to get as far down as possible before that, in order to be as close to possible to my measurements for April. 

 

This week will be tougher to get my workouts in... Taking the day off on Monday - I have a shopping/spa day with a girlfriend which I'm super excited about. Work Xmas party on Thursday (which means no workout Friday am!!!). Dinner out with friends Friday. But I'm aiming to stay on track with food whenever I'm not out and to get 3 resistance days in, plus 2 cardio days at least... That's my plan. I'll let you know how it goes. I really do feel like it helps to post this. I feel obligated to report back that I was successful! You ladies are the best. I've missed being on the site for the last couple of weeks.  :wub:

Hi @@vancouverpetunia

Sorry...I have been AWOL since returning from Mexico & put on around 7 lbs !! I have been working 6 days nearly every week and not made time to exercise or think about food. I plan to give myself a push from Monday to do more exercise (at least 45 mins for 3-4 days) and try to detox whilst on a shake plan. Will add one healthy meal in the first few days.

 

Good luck all!

Sorry I've been so distant, I am just really short on time :)

 

Thanks for checking in though and making us accountable Erin! And good job to you!!!

 

I am about 13 weeks in and have clocked in at 11.6 lbs down!  I am trying hard to workout once a week, but have been fairly good at eating properly.  The closer we get to Christmas the harder it is getting, but I am surely trying!!!!

Then Cuba in January and I am scared I am going to put it all back on hahah, but I will get there. About 12 lbs from where I am comfortable.

 

Good luck everyone!

You've been making great progress, Kim. I know the holidays and vacation will be tough, but stay strong! And if you get set back a bit, that's okay. Just make sure to get back on that horse

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
