12 Month Shred!

Since Eric and I met 3 years ago, I have managed to put on quite a ton of weight. I guess that is when you know you are truly happy with someone but WOW I really did let myself go! I never have been a tiny little thing but would like to get back into shape and at least be where I was when I met him 3 years ago. I have put my booty in gear and am determined to look smokin' in my wedding dress. I won't even try on dresses until I hit a target weight I have set for myself.

Since February, I have cut back on my daily caloric intake and am vigorously working out at least 4 times a week and am starting to see the results... finally! Below is my schedule but I plan on switching it up every few weeks to keep my body guessing.

Weekly Workout Regimen:
Monday: Cardio for 40 min (while watching Dancing with the Stars), weights, ab workout
Tuesday: Cardio Fusion - an hour long class, Boot camp style with circuits
Wednesday: Spinning Class for an hour
Thursday: Cardio Fusion - Step class w/resistance training
Friday: Rest
Saturday: Cardio 40 min, weights
Sunday: Rest

Whew, I can definitely tell the difference in my energy level, especially in the mornings! I am not having to rely on my snooze button any longer and am feeling alot healthier and better about myself! Having Kim as a workout partner is definitely help keeping me motivated.

I will be updating on my progress so stay tuned!

Submitted my taxes via free e-file and received my rebate in my account in less than 2 weeks... AWESOME!! Half is being put towards the wedding, the rest being invested into my wardrobe and credit card. :]

Le xyron

Invested in one of these bad boys...

Since I plan on doing quite a few DIY projects for the big day, I figured I needed alot of time to get to know the xyron creative station. Okay maybe a year and some odd days is quite some time but hey, couldn't let my 40% off coupon @ michael's expire.

Look at all the cute stuff I made at the Stampin' Up party @ the Conners today:

*phone cam, can't find my memory card for my digital camera :(
