@deecol Oh it's definitely hard! I love it though, it really makes you feel like you had a great workout and in only 15 mins! Thank you so much, I owe you

Tell Col that the wait will definitely be worth it! He's gonna fall in love with you even more (if that's possible) once he sees how hot his wife is in her dress ;) Der can't wait to see me in my dress too. My goal is to make him cry lol

FYI - My seamstress told me that 5lbs up or down won't make a huge difference size-wise so that was good to know. Once you gain or lose 10lbs, that makes a difference on whether you need a size up or down.

Good job everyone for sticking to things, especially thru the long weekend!!!

 

I knew my loss last week would be minimal given the potluck I attended. I only was down 0.2 for a total of 6.4!!  It wasn't a gain so I am happy.    I was able to maintain thru the long weekend, so here's to hoping for another loss this weekend.

 

My work outs lacked over the long weekend. I have always had back pain, but it was flaring up so I gave it a rest. I got back to it this AM!!!

 

Keep up the good work!

 

PS - I agree, some of those home programs are killer....  especially the ones shorter in time because they have to give you the effects of the longer workouts!   I had been a seasoned gym goer for a couple years before I decided to give JM 30 day shred a try... I was a bit surprised at how hard it was on the first go lol.....

@deecol I am with you! I have also taken so many progress photos. Mostly just "before" pictures and I'm so disappointed in myself for not following through. We've got the this!

@SunshineDreamKay well done at keeping to your goals! It's hard to make healthy choices sometimes. Most of the time my eyes are bigger than my stomach haha.

@Wafflesmom! Well done on losing 7lbs! That's amazing!

@calgarybride2015 sorry I was not sticking to my goals but I'm back in MFP and I intend to stay committed so you and Erin don't have to get lonely haha. Also well done on losing 6.2lbs! That's great

@perianjay that's awesome that you set yourself up for success! It's hard when we get busy but we just need to make it a priority! I feel you, I've been horrible for a few weeks and now it's getting to be crunch time!

@RivieraBride15 you look amazing in your dress. Your hard work has clearly paid off! Well done!

I tried to play catch up, sorry if I missed a few people. You guys post so much and are doing so good even with a few ups and downs! It's all part of the process!

I was doing horrible. I lost my job and used it as an excuse to eat poorly and not workout, feeling sorry for myself. When i got a new job I did a bit better started working out about 3 times a week which isn't my normal. But now that thanksgiving is done I've reset my self. If any of you know of the 21 day fix I just finished the 3 day quick fix portion of the program! It was challenging and strict but also so much food! I lost 2.5 lbs in 3 days! I feel like I reset myself now and I am going to continue with the 21 day fix meal plan as well as working out 6 days a week. I've got 3 days down, 3 more to go! Haha

Keep up the good work everyone!

@calgarybride2015 a loss of 6.4lbs? That's awesome, you should be really proud of yourself!

@yycbride2016 I'm sorry you've hit a rough patch but I'm glad that was only for a brief moment. Don't be so hard on yourself. Your pics on instagram are amazing and you're definitely an inspiration. Plus, 2.5lbs in 3 days, wow! What is the 21 day fix?

@Wafflesmom thanks! It's motivating when I get feedback from my Instagram. I like knowing if I'm reaching out to even one person. It actually motivates me to just try and post once a day, I feel guilty like I cheated if I didn't post haha.

The 21 day fix is a nutrition and fitness program. I only follow the nutrition side of it. It basically teaches you portion control. So I eat 4 portions of protein, 3 of veggies, 2 carbs, etc. I'll post some pics of the basic concepts (sorry for the quality, I found them online): Attached File  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1445005419.548273.jpg   22.42KB   5 downloadsAttached File  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1445005428.397233.jpg   114.4KB   5 downloads

Oh and the colors correspond to food groups:
Red: protein
Green: vegetables
Yellow: carbs
Purple: fruit
Orange: seeds & dressings
Blue: healthy fats
2tsp of oils & nut butters


And I decided to start my week with what is called the 3 day quick fix. It's a really strict version of the plan for 3 days where you basically don't get fruit or fats. It's supposed to be like "be competition ready in 72hours". I didn't do quite that good haha. I think I might do the 3 day quick fix once a month up until the wedding to speed things up. Here is a pic of the plan:

Hehehe no that's my total since we started! Not in one week. I wish :) but then again not really as that's not a healthy loss so probably had to be sick to get it lol

Noone has checked in, so to keep this thread active I will.... :)

 

I was a bit surprised that I only lost .6 this week given I did well over the long weekend, but a loss is a loss.  My total is 7lbs.

I only worked out twice last week so really trying to get up to 3 this week.

 

Next week I start a new casual job, so I am going to be stressed.

Not only do I have to figure out how to work out in the evenings (so much easier in the AM after I bring the kids to school) but now I have full time work and a full time course load!!!!!!  EEK!!!! wish me luck.

 

I only train until the end of November, but I know they have a full time line opening I am going to apply for!!!!  Trying to get into the school work full steam ahead.  Unfortunately the gym may take a back seat... will aim for atleast 2x a week though until the end of November when things should calm down some!!!

 

Hope others are doing well.

@calgarybride2015 wow, that's an insane schedule! We definitely need to find you your anniversary vacation, and stat! That's great that you've steadily lost weight. Don't be so hard on yourself, weight loss is a loss which is a heck of a lot better than a gain ;) With your busy schedule, I can see the gym taking a backseat. The best thing is to probably be more aware of what you eat and try to not opt for fast food. I know when I'm stressed and busy, I tend to cheat and do the easy route with fast food. So bad for us!

And thanks for reminding me that I have not checked in.

For me, I was not very good during the Thanksgiving weekend and ate my face off. I'm so weak when it comes to my sister's home cooking. I did workout 3x last week, wait 4 with one session of Hiitmax thanks to @deecol. I didn't do as well with meal planning and it showed, I gained 2lbs. I'm not too concerned since my weight tends to fluctuate and I still fit my wedding dress (had the second fitting last Saturday) so I know it didn't affect my measurements. The 2 lbs has just motivated me more to exercise harder and eat better.

This week has started off well. We had our fitness test at bootcamp and I broke my record for three things. I managed to do a wallsit for 8 mins and 45 seconds, a personal best for me! And I did 32 burpees I'm a minute which is also a personal best. I have 2 more sessions of pilates plus 1 bootcamp then I'll do some hiitmax exercises at home on the weekend. Super excited and motivated, can you tell? Lol So my goal this week is to do all the exercises I mentioned.

For wedding planning, I plan on working on some paperwork for the resort, like my legal ceremony form, guestlist form and send off our required documents for our legal ceremony. Then I'm gonna start tackling some of the smaller tasks like decorate our marquee letters, make up a sample OOT bag to see if I need anything else, and finalize other d├ęcor items like placemats and table settings. I'm getting excited since we're now at 95 days until our wedding, double digit countdown :)

@Wafflesmom great job!!! That's really awesome that you beat your personal best! :D

 

Sounds like you also have a lot of productive plans on the go as well! 

 

I went to the gym on Sunday night, took a rest last night because I was pretty achey and I'm going to try to make it back tonight to work out again. I have to get my butt to the grocery store so that I can get back to healthy meal planning for the week, but other than that i'm trying to be really good!
