Buff Brides!

It's not easy getting buff - I know this! I've been working out, doing yoga, and eating right for 6 months, and I've lost about 20 pounds. That's good - I know, but it's not easy.

You want to look good for your wedding, and not just good, but the best you've ever looked. I mean how many days of your life do you have a gazillion pictures of you, a party for 200 of your closest friends, and wear one of, no the, most expensive dress you'll ever wear. Yeah, like once.

So why not look, amazing! Here are some tips:

  • Be patient with yourself. It will take time. But have a plan, a food plan, a work out plan.
  • Have a goal. If you know you want to lose 10 pounds write that down.
  • Keep a diary of what you eat and drink. It makes you more conscience of what you are putting in your mouth all day.
  • Leave a little bit of food on your plate every time you eat, and if you feel control enough, leave 1/2 of your plate. If you do that everyday imagine how many calories you didn't eat!
  • Be consistent and don't make excuses. Enough with "I'll start tomorrow, I have time." Start today, don't wait for Monday, that's just another day on the calendar. Just Do It!

I am not a dietitian, I don't play one on TV, and I don't claim to be perfect (although, I am pretty darned close *wink*). I just know what I've done over the past months and what is working for me.

Attempt to lower your carb intake, up your lean protein and lower your fat intake and see where that takes you.

Good Luck!!!

Hello, Dahling!

You post this just as I consider eating leftover wedding cake or working out.

Damn, you Melissa. You and all your healthiness!

Just think about how'll you'll feel 5 minutes after eating it... better???

I know I suck as a human! ;)

I'd focus on a goal dress size instead of a goal weight - muscle adds pounds and women get depressed because they actually sometimes add weight even thought they are getting slimmer and then they give up. :)
