We Interrupt Your Regularly Scheduled Wedding Talk..

... for some fitness talk.

I hate to admit it, but I've been lazy lately. It's not for lack of wanting to work on my fitness, though.. oh no, not at all. I was getting into the swing of my c25k MONTHS ago when I fractured my foot. It took quite a while for my foot to feel right after that, too. But.. right after my foot healed, I suffered from a knee injury (that still bothers me on and off) not to mention the fact that I've gotten a cold/sinus problems and have been going non-stop this whole month.

But, that's enough of the complaining and the excuses. I have a little over 6 1/2 months to the wedding and I need to stop procrastinating and just suck it up. 

Derrick and I decided that starting today we're going to get healthy (he doesn't really need it.. he use to train to be a body builder, but it helps to have him keep my motivated/accountable.) So, starting today, we're going to start training for a 5k together! We're going to start the c25k program (he can run, so when I say "we" I really mean me and he's just going along to keep me company and safe."

We're going to train for the 5k 3x a week by running outside (thankfully there are some nice running trails around here). We're also going to do 2 days of upper body strength training at the gym and 2 days of lower body strength training and some cardio at the gym. I also started a diet today, as well, and I am more than determined to stick with it. We figured we would go balls to the wall from now until the wedding and then back off of it some. 

I'm about to take it Biggest Loser style with my life and I hope you guys join me for the ride. I'm going to be taking my before pictures when Derrick gets home from work and then we are heading out for our first run and then to the gym for some upper body. I'm not going to clog this blog up with exercise talk, though, so I'm probably going to update you all about every 2 weeks on here. If anyone wants to become fitness buddies with me.. let me know!


  1. 6 1/2 months?!? Holy hell muffins! I'm afraid I'd be an awful fitness bud cause I'm so lazy. Go get 'em tiger!!!!

  2. LOL! Yep! My thing is, if I don't see results then I give up really easily. So, Derrick is going to help keep me motivated and accountable and if I continue to see results.. then I'll rock it! I woke up this morning and was down 1 1/2 lbs since yesterday morning, though.. so woo hoo!! LOL!

  3. I really need to get back to my running...I was running almost every day last year and lately I've been slacking. But I got up this morning and did a great was finally nice enough outside that i could! Good luck, I know you can do it! It's so important to FEEL your best on your wedding day, and I know you'll get to where you want to be!
