My wedding is on FRIDAY! My mind is completely blown and I feel like I'm floating. It has come up so fast, but I can't wait. As I've been gearing up for my big day in a white dress, here's my routine...
WORKOUTS: Rain or shine, day or night, I'm at the gym. Well, mostly early in the morning, when it's barely light outside. This has lead to many half-awake mornings in front of the mirror, chugging my N.O. Explode and giving myself a pep talk. I am not a morning person... but I'm working on it!
To the gym, to The Merc, while watching The New Girl on Netflix... I'm trying to run around town more. When I have appointments, I've been trying to run there instead of taking public transit. I am surprised by how easy it is to just turn those little errands into an excuse to run - and sometimes I even get to my destination faster than if I used public trans!
My routine is to run there, do the hour long workout, and run home. Each way is about 1.7 miles, so it ends up being a very well rounded workout by the time you add it all up. An hour of hot (literally) toning plus a 3.4 mile run? Perf. It also means that, because of running there (and sometimes sprinting to avoid being late), I frequently START the hot classes with a face that is ALREADY red.
I pumped the most weight EVER in Bodypump this week and it felt like a serious personal accomplishment. Weddings are big motivators!
I've also been keeping up with Body By Science and doing one or two weights days per week with my fiance. He is a tough trainer...
I know I said I was kind of avoiding dairy... but let's be real, a grande unsweet iced coffee with a splash of whole milk is the bomb.
This one is similar, minus the sriracha, plus avocado and nutritional yeast (TASTES LIKE CHEESE OMG).
This one can hardly be called a salad. In my attempts to get as much protein and fat as possible, I occasionally just go straight to the good stuff: Crock pot chicken and avocado. YUM.
Meanwhile, my fiance (who is 6 foot 7 and seems to be able to eat whatever he wants, for the most part) is eating this...
Okay, it only happened once. Still funny.
What about you?
- Do you have special routines to prepare for big days or vacations?
