wedding workout…i can do it!

Ever since I stayed up til 1 am the other night curiously watching MTV’s “I Used To Be Fat,” I’ve been really motivated to lose this pre-wedding weight to get back to my old size (if not, at least less than I am now). Watching the girl go through rough workouts but losing 90 lbs in one summer was intense, but it made me think…I could totally do that! No, I’m not saying I want to lose 90 lbs in 2 months or something incredibly crazy like that, but it just made me want to be more healthy and keep working out.

I did day 3 of my wedding 100 push ups and it went really well! My max has gone up from 13 to 15, which is a nice little improvement. After push ups, Mathew and I decided to go to the gym. I love Gold’s Gym’s cardio cinema and tonight was perfect for it. We came in right in the 2nd scene of Salt (with Angelina Jolie) and wow was it good! We ended up intensely jogging and bicycling and using the elliptical for the entire movie!
I’m glad I have Mathew to do this with. It’s hard being a bride and knowing you want to shed some weight, but it’s definitely better when you’ve got a cute future hubs by your side.

  1. That’s awesome that your future hubs works out with you…I’m still trying to convince mine to get to the gym with me! And great about the push-ups…I’m thinking of trying that as well. Do you do full on straight leg push-ups or on your knees?

  2. Yeah you should definitely try the push up workout! It’s only 3 days a week and pretty much takes 5-10 mins or so (well, it will until your max pushups grows). I do push ups on my knees because when I do it with my legs, my feet always seem to slide no matter if I’m on carpet, tile, or a yoga mat! Maybe if your fiance wont go to the gym with you, he could do push ups with you at home 🙂

  3. You can do it!!!

  4. I’m starting on Monday! I just couldn’t do it last week… the first week of school is just too busy for me at work, but Monday, it’s on 🙂

  5. Lexi, so glad youre starting on monday! let me know how it goes!

  6. Isn’t that the truth(cute fiance by your side to work out with). My fiance helps motivate me too! We’re eating no sweets and working out together. It’s been wonderful having his support! 🙂
