So I’ve got three months until I’m married, and off to Hawaii where Dave is stationed with the army. I don’t really feel like I need to kick it into “boot camp” mode or anything, but I am being really intentional in a few areas. Here are some of the things I’m keeping in mind the next 10 weeks as I prepare to walk down the aisle:
- I’m sticking to my constants in my daily routine that have been good to me. Coffee for breakfast, protein, veggies, lots of water, occasionally fruit or sweet potatoes, dark chocolate and a probiotic for my sensitive tummy. Jill from JillFit recommends a BAS (big ass salad) daily, this is something I modify and go for to create an easy, filling and nutritious lunch.
- I’m walking on off days from training. Planning a wedding and relocating and dealing with the military is STRESSFUL. Walking is my time to clear my head, especially with the nice weather.
- Training is staying right with the Miss Fits and Gym Laird girls. I’m not afraid of bulking up or getting “swole” for my wedding. My body hasn’t looked manly the last four years of lifting, I doubt that will change the next three months. Give me the heavy weights!
- When you get engaged, people LOVE to give you sugar. It’s like the battle wasn’t hard enough. I’m practicing and exercising self control. And when that fails, I get over it, and maybe push the prowler a few times to get my blood flowing 🙂
I’m all about maintaining my body, that’s the beauty of making fitness and nutrition a lifestyle. If you’re looking for an excuse to change to a healthy lifestyle, just do it! In the long run, it pays off. You get one body, love it and take care of it.
