It’s now even closer to my wedding day, which is ultimately a scary thought! I am not looking to lose all the weight I want before the wedding, but I do know that I can definitely lose the weight that will make me happier on my wedding day. It’s going to take a lot of hard work but it’s possible. I am starting a brand new program that I was suppose to start already. Things happened and I couldn’t get motivated, although having a wedding dress to fit into should be motivation enough. This new program, is called Valor by Ashley Horner. It is an 8 week program, with workouts 5 days a week just busting your butt to do everything possible. I will also be doing a running program, because I know my body needs the cardio as well as the weight lifting.
My diet will be a little more of clean eating rather than IIFYM. I know my body can lose weight on the IIFYM aspect but to really make sure I don’t fall off the wagon and have too many cheat days which happens all too often. I am good with not drinking soda or alcohol, but it’s more the regular food and the snacks. This is basically what happens: I have a few good days where I eat the right way, right portions, and than I have a cheat day but the cheat day turns into cheats days, weekends, and just completely off the wagon. Therefore, I am going back to what I have done before: intaking low carbs, drinking shakes in the morning, eating correct portions with less fried, and more grilled options, and overall making healthier choices. Having a indulgence once or maybe twice a week is okay–as long as I stay on track.
I know it’s not always easy staying on track, especially while traveling, or while going out with friends or my fiance. Obviously, most people know that I am getting married, so if I have to eat healthy it’s an easy mission and not much effort. One place that I recently discovered that makes healthy smoothies is Smoothie King! Now it’s definitely not what you are thinking, unless you are thinking it sounds like a place to grab some really delicious and healthy drinks! They don’t just have the run of the mill smoothies; their categories include: fitness blends, slim blends, wellness blends, take a break blends, and even kid’s cups. The flavors that are in each category have plenty of choices. I was glad to try the Gladiator Strawberry smoothie. It has Strawberry Gladiator Protein flavor and fresh strawberries and bananas. I loved all the flavors coming together and there was no aftertaste, which is always a win in my book. The really great thing is that there’s no way to go wrong with the selection. If you are going to the gym you can get a slim blend- Lean1 Chocolate. If you are coming from a really awesome workout and don’t want to ruin it with junk food, get a fitness blend one like the Gladiator Chocolate.
I honestly love when establishments help you make a healthier choice, nothing too expensive, and all under 400 calories.
