It’ seven months until our wedding and then honeymoon in Jamaica! Of course, it’d be great to have those amazing beach bodies.. 😉 I’d like my FH and I to get in shape by that time, and soon too because I will have to start getting alterations done in a few months on my dress. We plan to go running, but do any bees on here have any tips for us? It’s not that we need to loose a lot of weight, just a few pounds and get fit. 🙂

There is going to be a lot of obvious advice given on this thread. Obviously calories in vs. calories out etc..
But I personally do really well with meal replacement shakes. I also try to keep food away from myself most of the time. For instance, I don’t bring snacks to work. I bring my one meal replacement shake. It takes the cheating out of things for you.

I’m a really big health and wellness person, and even as much as I exercise, I don’t see changes unless I eat healthier… really focus on foods that don’t have “labels” aks fruits and veggies, whole grains, proteins. I know it’s obvious but really exercise in conjunction with healthy eating patterns are best. I’m training for a 50k and I havent seen many changes in my body except now when I’ve really started to crack down on my diet.

Weight training!! If you want those muscles to show, definitely pick up weights a few times a week in addition to your cardio. Do you have a gym membership?

@RunnerBride13: No, neither of us have gym memberships. I don’t like gyms – I know, I’m weird. lol
@Megan10513: That’s very true. I plan to stop buying junk food for the house and just get fruit, yogurt, and things along those lines. Thanks 🙂
@Kat: That’s a good idea. I snack throughout the day instead of having big meals. Definitely need to watch more on what I bring to work though..

Try doing a program together. My boyfriend and I are through the first month of fitnessblender 8 week program. It’s a little like insanity, but only $7 for the guide and then the videos are all on youtube and it mixes them up for you.

I agree with @starcatcher09 about doing a program together. DH and I are doing P90X, and doing the program together helps us to keep each other accountable.
PS, if you want results, I would definitely recommend P90X. We’re only through the first month (of three), and we’re already seeing real changes (shrinking waistlines, ab definition, better muscle tone all over).
