Remember that old Bridal Bootcamp I was doing back in the spring? Where I would exercise a minimum of 4 times a week? And count my calories? And remember how I reached my goal weight for the wedding?
Well, since then I’ve gotten a little lazy. Like, really lazy. Like gaining-EIGHT-pounds-in-the-last-five-months lazy.
My best friend Allison calls it the Happy Pounds. And boy was it happy: a decadent honeymoon of mixed drinks and seafood. A whole season of attending weddings and parties. And then summertime laziness of barbecues and potluck dinners….
Well, this careless newlywed eating needs to end now. I had one of those terrible moments the other day when it was a struggle to button up my favorite jeans—the same jeans that just five months ago I could shimmy down my hips.
So what’s my brilliant, hard-core plan to lose this weight, you ask? I’m going to keep it very simple. Starting this Friday, all I will do is just report to you guys what I have done for the week. Even if the answer is “I ate horribly and didn’t work out once,” just knowing I’ll have to write that in public will motivate me during the week. I look forward to sharing my results with you all! :)
What keeps you motivated when you are trying to lose weight? What is your favorite exercise activity?
