Operation: Wedding Slimdown — The Beginning!


I am beyond excited to share this post with you today.

Two of my good friends have made the jump to Ā GET HEALTHY!!!!! To maintain their privacy I will call them Tracy and Julie.

Tracy is getting married in a little over a year from now and Julie is her Maid of Honor! We have been talking for a little while about this but having the wedding getting closer lit a fire under their butts to get moving! I am totally thrilled for them.

Today was our first weigh-in and measurements! We calculated BMI, set short term and long term weight loss goals, discussed their workout schedule, and went over my Food Guideline Packet. (More about that and some other services in about a week or so šŸ™‚ )

Tracy is at 207lbs and Julie is at 204 lbs.Ā 

Long term goal: – 56lbs by early January

Short term goal: 8-10lbs per month (about 2-3 lbs per week)

They also made a great decision and starting Monday are going to be drinking Shakeology to replace one meal a day! With their particular Challenge Pack they also got 2 workouts : Hip Hop Abs and Rockin’ Body. Both are high cardio, fat-burning, ab sculpting workouts..and best of all THEY GET TO DANCE!!! They both love Zumba classes, so I figured this would be perfect for them.

Meal Plan: stick to the guidelines in the Food Guideline Packet + one cheat day per week + Shakeology one meal per day

Workout: Hip Hop Abs & Rockin’ Body

I am so pumped to monitor their progress, kick their butts, and watch them transform their lives and their health!

I am also excited to share their experience with you! Starting today, I will start giving you updates on their progress, struggles, and comments every Saturday after our weekly meeting.

Operation: Wedding Slimdown has begun! Stay tuned šŸ˜‰


Running until you cry

Today has a weird day for me. I apparently have more built up inside than I thought.

I woke up late, for the second day in a row, and got a slow start to the day. I decided around noon to go for a run because I was pacing back and forth from my kitchen to my bedroom for some unknown reason.

I started with walking a bit to warm up and decided that as far as I walked I would run the same distance home. (Remember Im starting out slow here). As I was walking it started to drizzle..and then a bit harder. SO I just started running…


Whatever it was I was holding inside came out..

I just stopped and bawled my eyes out. Thank god it was raining. I was soaked from head to toe when I got home. But it felt damn good.

Its sunny out now…

Nothing like running to release tension and stress.

Anyone else have a similar experience?
