Every bride wants to look her best on her wedding day and since I have been the same weight for the last five years (believe me there have been efforts to lose) I decided starting early was the best thing. So even though I have a year and a half before my wedding I decided it was go time. The Plan:
In an effort to make this as painless as possible, I took my love of working out, specifically running to the streets. I am training for a half-marathon with the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation. Now that the weather is nicer it’s making those longer runs nicer. In combination with my training runs I am also spinning, lifting weights and going to yoga.
It’s a tricky place I am in, because when you train and run long distances you are supposed to up your carbs and protein intake. But, when you are trying to lose weight, you are supposed to cut those pesky carbs out. Not to mention the fact that my pescatarian diet doesn’t necessarily help me too much.
I hear the same thing all the time “it’s about portion control,” so I started a spread sheet on Google docs to help me keep track too.
We shall see how this all goes.
