I love cross fit, kills my back through so I have stopped for now. Right now I am doing 






I find the kick boxing has really been making a difference in my back and arms. Hoping to lose 6 more lbs before the wedding, seem to be at a stand still with my scale latley.

I just joined a gym and have been eating healthy. I have 6months to get into shape!

At the gym I run and use the elliptical.  I also use the machines for abs and arms! Hope it works!

I was doing Hot Yoga and loved it, but I always need to change it up or I get bored fast!

Calorie counting via My Fitness Pal, and doing Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred. I plan to do 6 Week 6 Pack after that, and if I need to tone a bit more to fit nicely into the dress I’ll try P90X or Insanity.

I was eating right and doing Insanity and running everyday, and then an unexpected surgery happened and now I can’t exercise for a few more weeks lol. A couple pounds have found their way back unfortunately. The dress fitting is mid/early next month, but I’ve started eating right again and plan on starting Zumba and Insanity again soon πŸ™‚

And hopefully it will continue after. That’s the hope anyway!

@thdpr:  I’ve been running on the treadmill and doing exercises for my mid section.  Also I put a food tracker app on my phone LoseIt! I love it! I used to use myfitnesspal but this app is so much better =D

@thdpr:  I am an avid Advocare product user. Since using the products and making an amazing lifestyle change – I went from 126 to 113 in about 2 1/2 months. I love going to the gym now because I feel amazing! Without a doubt, I WILL keep this up after the wedding πŸ™‚ I wouldn’t change the way I feel for the world.

@thdpr:  I’m a Crossfitter, too! I LOVE IT. I started last fall as a way to ramp up my exercise regime. I hit a “wall” and wasn’t getting the results I wanted in the regular 24 Hour Fitness gym doing things on my own. I highly recommend trying CrossFit, ladies! I went to my first dress fitting last month and the dress zipped up. (Whew, I was nervous!) I’m trying to lose some extra body fat in the meantime and toning muscles in the shoulder/arms/back. I changed my diet to eat more clean foods and cook more at home. It has helped a lot. Apparently I ate too much junk food (hamburgers and tacos at least once per week, pre-made salads and microwavable foods). 


Good luck with your efforts!

Hey Ladies! So I first tried on my dress in Sept of last year. At that time i couldnt step into it and had to pull it over my head. I didnt do much of a gym routine after that but i have really focused on my diet. So when I tried it on again in December I was able to step into it! Since Jan 1 I am down 12lb but I have definitely toned and defined and gained muscle. I have continued my diet, but I know you cant cut everything out! For me its eating good breakfast and having a small snack mid morning to make sure I dont overeat at lunch. Lots of lean protiens and veggies!

For my gym routine

I run/walk on treadmill 25 min

Then I either do an upper or lower body workout.

Then finish it up with some crunches, pushups and side plank!

I am training to run at least a 5k this summer so I am really focusing on my endurance while toning with the strength training. I’ve definitely noticed changes in my body before changes in the scale. My ultimate goal is to run a 1/2 marathon so maybe next summer? Once summer rolls around I am starting a running clinic 2x a week and hopefully morning yoga 3x/week plus playing ball! I can’t wait! My advice to everyone is not to focus on the scale but how you feel, your energy levels and measurements! Good luck ladies!
