Y'all Are Crazy! :)

I just scrolled back a few pages and saw the post from A&M about our pictures on my photographer's blog.  LOL!  Ya'll are too much!

I'm glad everyone loved the pictures, and of course I'm happy A&M posted them so everyone could see them while they were hot off the press.  Smile

    Oh and THANK YOU for all of the compliments/comments on my recap.  It was fun to relive it all in my mind again.

    For those of you who asked about my workout/eating routine...I have been slowly losing weight over the past year with the help of my DH.  We would take classes together (body sculpt, pilates, boxing) and then do strength training with about 20 minutes of cardio on our regular gym visits.  We go to the gym about 5-6 days a week.  But what REALLY took me over the top in terms of seeing the muscle definition clearly in my arms and abs was the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Ripped DVD.  I started it on June 1 and it was sooo good (but I hated her while I did it - LOL!).  I would highly recommend that DVD to anyone who wants to lose a few lbs and tone up quickly.

    In terms of eating I tried to cut down on carbs (not cut out altogether) and eat less processed foods.  I also tried to follow Jillian Michaels 30-Day Eating Plan that she has posted online.  I ate less meat (ate meat maybe 4 times a week) and more fruit, vegetables and low-fat yogurt, etc. 

    PM me if you need more details!

    Mine goes up and down - right now I'm at around 137. Even FI has gained about 10lbs! Since I started this job where I travel pretty much every week,  I don't cook as much and I have no option but to eat out when I'm on the road. I know it's not an excuse cos there are healthy eating options, but it's hard when you're with co-workers who are not as health conscious. I'm 5'2 and would like to be around 130lbs by the wedding. I need to start working out too....ugh!!!

    Exactly this! We are the same height and hide weight in the same places too it seems. I think I swapped tummies along the way also, Ty.

    shout out to Ty we are the exact same height and I include the half everytime I say it lol. I wish I was in the 140's but I think I would look like a bobble head if I dropped down that low. I have some lbs to loose but i don't want to be the big heifer on the board so I will keep my exact number between me myself and I. Hangs head in shame :(

    Seriously I just had to do some self assessing and I need to get myself together and quick. Skip the wedding I just need to get healthier. I eat healthier since I am insulin dependant diabetic (I was diagnosed when I was 10) I just hate working out but I need to erase that hate like ASAP!
