- Wedding: July 2016
As our wedding day draws closer, Fiance & I realized we’ve got to lose a little bit of weight. We’re eating a lot more at home now, and quite healthy at that and I’ve stopped eating sweets / dessert for a few days now but I think we’ve still got a ways to go.
Also we are saving as much money as possible for dermo visits etc as I’ve just been diagnosed with steroid induced rosacea (yay, me) so joining Equinox = totally out of the question. Since I’ve literally just arrived in the States, I’m not on his insurance yet till we get our courthouse ceremony sorted etc so based on today’s first dermo visit – $400, we’re in for a very long few months leading up to the wedding!
Working out in the sun, or any place uncovered, also out of the question thanks to this lovely skin condition.
Ideas we’ve thrown into the ring:
– Join a cheaper gym (I hate gyms, he doesn’t mind, but if he were to join one he would join one close to work – which is an hour away rather than one closer to home)
– Online Home Fitness Instructor (For me, not him since he works haha)
– Clock in lots of time on the treadmill (briskwalking not running cos I’m not really allowed to sweat – I have rosacea)
– Get a FitBit (I just got one) and clock in 10,000 steps and get up and move more often
Any ideas or anything you’ve tried in the past that you found really worked to drop weight? We have five months to go, so ideally I’d like to be in shape in three months. I don’t have a whole lot of weight to lose ( between 5-10 lbs max) but I feel like it’s always the hardest to shift particularly since I’m in my late 30s now.
