Gaining Momentum

17 Oct

Today is a monumental day for a few reasons. I actually removed my own hair from the shower drain after I washed it, and I said some words to my fiance that he has probably not heard come from my mouth in a while.

“Wanna go to the gym?”

So we went. And a good time was had by all.

I’m slowly getting to the point where I’m ready to set some concrete goals, and begin to post photos of my progress, but I’m a little hesitant to start based on two things:

  • I can’t commit: We’re in the process of buying a house, and until things settle on that front, I’ll start to post stats and photos when I can commit to a consistent schedule – which should be soon since we close on Friday!
  • I don’t feel the love: I started this journey publicly so I could have the support of other bloggers and hopefully some brides-to-be who have similar goals, but so far..I’m just not feeling it.

So I ask today, if you’re stopping by, and you’re a bride-to-be, (or not even), what are some of the things you’ve done to motivate yourself and stay consistent to meet your weight loss goal? I also want to hear of some fun little stories anyone wants to share about their wedding planning process. Like, so far, my adult only reception plans are still on track, even after a long phone convo with the future mom-in-law. I’m so proud we stuck to our guns and are keeping it an adult only reception despite some protests from each side of our families. (I found it funny the one who barked the loudest was an aunt who spent her entire reception yelling at all the kids for touching her decorations).

Have a great week public and show me some love while you’re at it! 🙂

    Hi Skye! That’s some awesome advice. I’ve never heard of EFT, but I’ll definitely take a look at it. I have found that daily affirmations are helpful in day-to-day stuff, but never really applied to my weight loss goals, yet. Thanks for sharing!
