As of tomorrow there is exactly 10weeks until I Marry my best friend and I want to look my best
Not just for the big day but also for the 2 weeks we will be spending in Mexico straight after…I will be in a bikini for the majority of those 2 weeks so I wnat to look, and more importantly feel good.
Is anyone following a workout plan?
My ‘problem area’ (read: Area I normally cover up) is my tummy. My dress is not very forgiving as it clings to my curves. Thats a good thing so long as my curves dont include my tummy! So I want to focus the workout on that area.
I have tried Jillians 30 day shred but I got bored after 10…her voice annoyed me so much by that point! I just did her 6 week to 6 pack workout but just didnt like it, I felt like the shred was a better workout.
I have a exercise bike, rowing machine and a cross trainer so I can work them in. I also have an exercise mat and hand weights.
Can anyone help me to create an exersice plan to get me ready for the big day?…and the dress fitting (aggghhhhhh)

One thing I did once I got used to Jillian’s workouts was I would put them on my laptop and turn the sound down, so I could follow along without hearing her voice. Then I’d do them while watching something else on TV or netflix. Made the workouts go faster and they were less annoying. Also, I have the 30day shred, ripped in 30, and no more trouble zones, so I mix and match workouts so I’m not doing the same one day in and day out for 7-10 days. I actually only do them a few days a week and run or ride the stationary bike we have the other days. Sometimes I’ll double up, but I usually don’t have time to.

I started doing the Insanity workout.
It’s a 2 month program which is perfect for you.
I found it on a torrent website and downloaded the discs and burned them so I could watch it on tv.
It’s super intense. You do it 6 days a week and you follow a low carb high protein meal plan that comes with it.
I started doing it January 1st. I weighed 334 pounds and I was only able to do it every other day because being so heavy I would get super worn out. Even though I was doing it every other day I have lost 30 pounds so far.
It makes you lean. Most people think I’ve lost a ton of weight already because I’m losing inches so quickly.
It’s a great program. I recommed it to everyone. I was so impressed, I went out and bought it because originally I had just downloaded and burned it myself because I didn’t want to spend 100 dollars on a program if it didn’t work, but it works great.

@Otaqueen: Do you have a copy of the meal plan that you could send me? I’d be really interested in seeing how they suggest eating. On the advice of another Bee who really knows her stuff, I’m doing cutting back a lot on carbs to try to shed my last 10-15 pounds, and I’d love to see some different meal ideas!

@abbie017: Sure I can send it to you. If it’s not on my laptop (I’m at work) it must be on my home computer. Send me your email and I’ll send you the pdf.
