LOL, I keep promising myself this. Starting slow by at least doing 15 min of yoga a day…I’m thinking I should buy a video or something so I have a routine to follow so I can do a real workout. I’m not actually trying to lose weight, I just really want to be in better shape so I have more stamina and energy for all the things I want to do on my honeymoon in July 🙂

I keep trying to do this but then falling off the bandwagon with the holidays and such… it’s so frustrating!

Oh yes, I began a decent workout schedule. And then life happened. Busy with work and moving, and now the Holidays… who trys to eat healthy during the holidays?!?! I cant!! lol.
So thats why Im prepping myself NOW!!
I dont so much want to loose a lot of weight. Just like bearlove : have more stamina, more energy, toned up, and I could stand to loose 10 – 15 lbs.
So starting in January Im going to weigh and measure myself. Im going to post about what excersice i do and my progress!! I suggest you ladies do the same!! I feel like if I make myself post about it, then I will want to do it to see my progress.
I used to be such a dedicated person, and I feel like that has fallen away. IM GETTING IT BACK!! 2011 seriously sucked so bad!! and Ill be damned if 2012 is the same!!!
I KNOW that you ladies have it in you, like me. And with help and motivation from each other, I can see this going well!!!
So get on it!! Start prepping yourself for 2012!!

I’ll join! I’m going to make a work out schedule with pilates, zumba, running, and weights to tone those arms! No roll-over arm flab for my strapless sweetheart, thank you very much! We have a Y membership and I have been neglecting it these past months. After the New Year that’s all going to change 🙂

@Michaela-Ann Beautifully said “No roll-over arm flab for my strapless sweetheart, thank you very much!” I couldnt have said it better myself!!
For christmas last year, my mom gave Fiance and I a 2 year gym membership. Thank goodness for the 2 year part, bc this past year, i think I went a handful of times. Im just not really a GYM person. We just moved to a part of town also where its like EVERY person in the gym is already in great shape. So everyone is like great looking, and there are NO FAT PEOPLE!!! I dunno why, but I cant get inspired there, it just makes me feel bad. I feel like the people there are staring at my fat butt bouncing up and down on the stair master!!! lol.
i hate that gym!!! and im NOT about to drive 30 mins to another one! (the gym for the membership) So, once I GET into shape then I can go to that one. haha.

Count me in! I’ve already been working out, but I desperately need to change the foods I eat—i.e., I need to not ONLY eat carbs 😛
Post # 12
I’m in! I’ve been doing the c25k, as well as pilates. And I JUUUUST got Fiance to start on the 30 day shred with me! He was actually really excited when it kicked his butt last night! He said it felt really good.
I am SO in though! I gotta fit into that sample size dress!

Ok, so I am a healthy eater already and try to maintain a health lifestyle so I am here to help you ladies get in shape for your big day. My wedding is Oct 2012 so I am also planning on staying focus and making sure I am beach ready for our honeymoon. best of luck ladies.

Please add me in! I’m trying to lose 20lbs next year.

Hells yes Im with ya!!
I’ve started by using the wiifit yoga for about an hour a day in december but eating whatever. I was kind of doing it to get more of a start on toning and whatnot but I’ve lost one pound. lol. In Jan, I’m gonna start with the diet and incorpate my ea active which makes me break a sweat. I dont want to spend the money on a gym membership because I know I wont go. I tempted to buy the cardiobarre as I used to dance.
But as PP said I’m not looking for much to go away I’d be thrilled with 10-12lbs but elated with 5-8 too.
I’m also a huge idiot and picked the most unforgiving dress. Go me.

First ladies, becareful not to diet. If you diet you will gain all the weight back once you stop dieting. You need to be able to maintain a health lifestyle not diet. I know this sounds crazy but it really works. I’ve been the same size pretty much since High School (give or take those 5lbs I gain and lose during the year) because I don’t diet I just maintain a better lifestyle.
Sub fries or mash potatoes for a side salad.
Set a cut off at night to stop eating.
Drink water more then anything (this will also help with your skin)
Stop eatng can foods and switch to frozen (to much sodium).
be mindful of the junk foods and try a yogart or veggies.
I maintain a very strick but managable eating lifestyle. It doesn’t bother me but it does everyone else when they hear what I eat or don’t eat. At the end of the day, I am fine with it and enjoy feeling good and looking good.
