Hey Triple B, I hope everyone’s week was well. As far as my diet is concerned, for the most part mine was great. However, Friday was a challenging day. I met some girlfriends for dinner at Carmines. If you are familiar with Carmines [in New York City] you already know their mammoth size family style portions of Italian fare can be any dieter’s nemesis. I handled it well, if I do say so myself. I gave myself permission to enjoy for the evening. Evoking an 80/20 rule of sorts, the Dieter’s edition.
The most important call a bride-to-be receives is probably the one to schedule their first dress fitting. After months of waiting, I’m expecting my call any day. I can’t wait to wear it again! Most brides prepare for their dress fittings by toning up or losing weight. I’ve been doing both: increasing fruits and veggies intake, avoiding fatty fried foods and even hitting the gym a few times a week. Although I love the results (7 inches so far!), because I’m petite and slim, I don’t want to lose any more weight or gain too much muscle. So I’m switching up my routine: more cardio and yoga.
Contrary to popular belief, this lifestyle change is about more than my dress or my wedding. I turn 35 in May so it’s more about keeping a promise I made to myself on how I wanted to celebrate this milestone. Whatever your motivation, I hope these expert tips will help you achieve and maintain your fitness goals.
