@Wafflesmom
Glad you aren't hard on yourself because with the workouts you did your gain could very well be water retention too!!! I also gain with weights and new exercises. You'll do great this week and you've done great overall :) keep it up!

Thanks @calgarybride2015 and @perianjay

@perianjay great job with hitting the gym on Sunday. Workout pains are the best, I always feel so accomplished lol Does that make me a masochist?

@calgarybride2015 7lbs is a huge success! You have to count every little ounce a success I find. I'm noticing it harder to lose/manage my weight every year I get older :( but 7 lbs is awesome! I'm sorry your schedule is going to get cray cray! You can do it! You have the motivation and drive!

@Wafflesmom you are doing so good! Look at that motivation! Killer! Keep it up. You are doing lot of exercise which is great. Remember you can't out exercise a bad diet. Good luck with grocery shopping. I hate grocery shopping hahaha.

@parianjay well done on working out on Sunday, taking yesterday off is no big deal. Sometimes you just have to listen to your body! If your body needs a break then take a break!

As for my check in:
I worked out last week on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and then again yesterday. Took one extra break day on Sunday because I was lazy haha. I don't feel too bad about it though. My diet has been very up and down. My fiancé has been amazing at holding me accountable. Except for last night when we were both weak and wanted a snack . My future mother in law got me a cook book that is specific to the 21 day fix plan and it is amazing! So much variety. All week I'm having healthy Mac and cheese with chicken and broccoli! I've also discovered these amazing protein crepes that are only 190 calories (that includes a banana and a Greek yogurt filling). I think with this cook book I'll be on my A-game!


Go team brides!!!

Thanks for getting this going again @calgarybride2015!

 

@Wafflesmom I'm glad you're enjoying the hiitmax!  I haven't been very good with it lately, I've been working out, just haven't made it past week 2 of the program yet.

 

I indulged on the weekend - Made a three-course meal for Col that included 3 apps (I'm Italian...) dinner and chocolate mousse for dessert.  I did try to swap healthy options in where I could - I made gnocchi and used 2/3 sweet potato instead of all white and made my own fresh pesto sauce.  We were so full we couldn't even drink all the wine I bought to go with dinner  :P Needless to say I haven't lost any weight... but I didn't gain either which is good.

 

I started the week right by making a big crockpot of chicken chili for lunches loaded with veggies and beans and paired it with quinoa.  I also bought this buckwheat pancake flour from Bulk Barn that you mix with water, it's full of protein and fibre so I've been having that with egg whites for breakfast.  I've been working out (spin & weights) consistently, and going to start adding hiitmax back in.  Colin is really motivated at the moment.  He started changing up his workouts and his body is reacting so quickly (ugh guys!) so he's finally motivating me to stay on it when it's usually the other way around.  We're hitting our 6 month mark soon and had almost all the Canadian payments come through (deadline is tomorrow) so I think it's becoming real to him how close this is coming!

 

My best friend's bachelorette is this weekend - I'm not planning on drinking very much since I'm doing all the driving from Toronto to Ottawa and back, I definitely don't want to drive 5 hours with a hangover.  I did order naughty cupcakes and I know we're going out for dinner but I will try my best to behave - YOLO (do the kids still say that?  :P )

 

Wedding planning - as you can see in my thread, I've been playing around with my flowers... and took an inventory of everything that I've purchased in the last few months.  I've added a couple things that I'll post pics of soon in my thread.

@deecol hahaha I just laughed at YOLO. I just said that to my gf yesterday and thought the exact same thing. 

It won't kill you to indulge every now and then. When am I coming over for homemade gnocchi? haha so jealous!

 

Great job with your meal prep! I'm hoping to make it out tonight to grab some groceries so that I can try to do the same for the rest of the week.

 

Have fun this weekend!!! Ain't nothing wrong with a little yolo-ing every now and then ;)

@yycbride2016 what's the name of that cookbook? Everything you've posted sound and look delicious, I'd like to try making them. And you're comply right about not being able to out exercise a bad diet. I can certainly do a lot better with meal planning, it's just so hard lol And great job with all the workouts! You're a machine!

@deecol that gnocchi sounds so good. And yes, YOLO lol plus your cheat didn't do any damage so it's all good. And don't you hate how guys lose weight and change so easily/quickly? So unfair. Sounds like you're giving him a run for his money though with the exercises and meal prep. All sounds so delicious.

That's great that all the deposits have been coming in, ours isn't due until Nov 20.

And what's a naughty pancake?

Oh and great choice on bouquet arrangement selection! Both were beautiful

@perianjay hahaha "Ain't nothing wrong with a little yolo-ing every now and then".  You're so right!  And you can come over to Mama Dee's kitchen for gnocchi any time you like!!  I can't bake but I'm a decent cook  :) I screwed up the chocolate mousse lol so you would have to bring the dessert.

 

@Wafflesmom Ugh sooo annoying how quick their bodies respond!  The guy has like insta-abs and you can already see them coming through.  I'm going to have to beat him, I'm too competitive lol

 

We are waiting on 4 out of 19 people to pay their balances so we're in good shape  :) Someone literally messaged me while I was typing this to let me know they paid. The UK people have their own deadlines as it was more expensive to get them a group rate and they booked on their own.  Our deadline was a bit earlier because they included an "early booking bonus" which made it possible to get the trips for $1259 pp.

 

I actually love my new flower arrangement, I'm feeling really confident with it.  Thanks for all your feedback.  It's so helpful to post some pics and get opinions!

 

I got naughty cupcakes for the bachelorette - they have umm "male genitals" on top lol.  It was so awkward ordering - I was like "ummm they don't need to be realistic... I want her to know what they are but it's not a science class so I don't need details..." lol  I'm picking them up from a bakery on the way to Ottawa on Saturday.  I would post pictures but I don't know if I'm aloud lol
