I can say two things with absolute certainty:
1. I’m glad I’m working out.
2. I’m glad I started so early before the wedding.
The first one is pretty self-explanatory, but the second? It’s because I always end up in this awkward state of fitness limbo around 6 weeks into working out. I go hard, but all the muscles I’m building make the excess fat (that normally hid itself quite well) come out and play. It’s frustrating and a bit of a downer.
Still, it’s oh-so-important to stick with it and keep going! Here’s what last week – a big success week! – looked like for me:
Tuesday: TRX Class (I can’t recommend TRX enough – I’m ALWAYS super sore afterwards, so I know something is going right!)
Thursday: Weights – leg and butt
Saturday: Weights – arms and core
My eating, however, was a total bust. It happens, I know, but I’m working on improving this week. I’ve stocked up on the Starbucks Via Refreshers (which I just adore!) and more lean meat (like the sushi above from Yatai Sushi Cart in Denver!). I’m also focused on another solid week of workouts (it’s Wednesday, and I’m already three days down!). I’d love to know how my other brides (and FTTBers, wherever you are!) are holding up!
And for a little bit of motivation… I wanted to share with you one of my hair tricks for working out. Meet Kitsch, my new all-time favorite hair bands. I use them every day at the gym. They’re one of the few hairbands I’m cool with having on my wrist. I even plan on giving a pack to each of my bridesmaids – specifically the sparkly ones!
