Now, on to the point of this post.....my newfound workout motivation! I found out on Christmas Eve that I am going to be a bridesmaid in the wedding of one of my closest friends, Kathy, and her fiance Zach. I was ELATED to hear that they wanted me to be part of their day, and it's actually a funny story about how she told me....but that's another post for another day.
You can see, I am sure, why I have newfound workout motivation......I refuse to be a fat bridesmaid! And many would argue that I am not fat, but I am far from healthy and I am definitely overweight. I haven't been content with how I look and how my clothes are fitting, but I wasn't previously motivated to get the workout ball rolling again. But now, I have until December 17, 2011, to get myself in shape!
I need to focus on weight loss, as well as toning. Depending on the type of dress, my arms and shoulders will probably be showing, and I want them to look good/not jiggle! I also REALLY need to focus on my eating. I have always rather easily maintained my weight, within 10 lbs or so since I was in high school. So I never worried much about what I was eating. But now that I am actively trying to lose weight, I will need to pay more attention to eating a healthy balanced diet.
So, wish me luck, blog friends. And poke your head in here every once in a while to make sure I am on track!
