Before we get started, I guest posted (a good read for all you girls in a long term relationship) over at one of my favorite blogs, Tammy's Lemons, Avocados and the Bay while she's in Israel. So feel free to stop by, get to know Tammy's blog and leave me some comment love, I would really appreciate it! 🙂

It's that time again friends....

Let's Get Physical April!

April2013LGP

So personal training has been going really well. I haven't missed a session yet so that means I am at the gym at least twice a week (which is 200% more than I used to go before I hired one). I'll blog about my experience with personal training soon, maybe as a mid-point check in for April. 🙂 So while I'm getting to be more physically active, I do feel like I need to work on other aspects. For some reason, March was a month that Rob and I decided to "act our own age" and that means I've had a few more glasses of beer, wine and late night bites. I need to make sure to account for that extra fun we're having. Also, I'm making a bigger effort to pick better food when we're eating out. Goodbye cheese fries, deep fried fish and pasta. It's time to quit cheating myself by acting like eating out is an excuse to splurge, it's NOT.

I've been reading Mama Laughlin lately to get my pumped for my weight loss. She is not only hilarious and basically everything I want to be, she's lost so much weight (the healthy way) and looks amazing!  I've got a short 2 months until engagement photos and roughly 14 months until the wedding. It's now or never!

It's only a few months until summer and beach season, do you have any fitness goals you're working towards?

Anyone have any low calorie advice on beer and wine? 😉

I have a quick favor to ask of all my lovely readers/friends! So Rob and I are ALWAYS eating at our favorite sushi restaurant, Mikunis (pictured here and here). So yesterday when I noticed they had wedding contest, I entered us in! Please prettttttty please vote for us at this link. It's super simple, all it takes is a few clicks. How cool would it be to win a wedding from our favorite late night happy hour sushi spot? Thank you in advance! 🙂

It's that time again folks...

Let's Get Physical!

(Just in case you don't know what Let's Get Physical is, here's a graphic with the low down)

This is what February looked like in terms of fitness and health:

Since I'm was feeling so inspired and fired up by my fellow Let's Get Physical ladies, I did something big this week. I hired a trainer for the next 3 months! In case you're wondering what that cost, I'm still in shock that I could've bought another year of Disneyland Annual Pass for the price of my 26 half hour sessions, and THEN SOME. 1 half-hour personal training session at my gym costs roughly what a 3-course meal for 1 guest at my wedding venue is going to cost. So I joked with Rob that 26 people just got cut from our guest list. 😉

Anyways, it's ON like Donkey Kong people! When I signed the contract, I knew that this was the beginning of a new me - mostly because I can't fathom letting money going to waste. I plan to share all the details of how successful or unsuccessful weight loss can be with a physical trainer (and no, I'm totally not getting any kind of payment or discount for blogging about it) and maybe it can be an option for those of you who are struggling too.

Let's Get Physical is stepping it up a notch by offering weekly motivational e-mails, a Pinterest board for healthy recipes and a google community for tips, questions and support! The ladies who join me for LGP are the best and we'd love to have you!

Link up with LGP until next Wednesday, March 13th at 11:59 pm PST.

It's that time again....

Let's Get Physical!

The point of Let's Get Physical is to connect with others who are on a fitness journey as well. If you don't relate to at least one food weakness or motivation of the ladies above, I just don't think you are a human being. I for one, relate to all of them (I may be biased because they're all close bloggy friends of mine).

So here's my check in of Let's Get Physical for February:

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Vacation in Seattle was simply phenomenal but when I felt that California sunshine hit me through the plane window, I swear I nearly lost my marbles. I was overjoyed. It's official, I cannot live anywhere that doesn't have sunshine 90% of the year. I can't wait to share all the yummy food photos with you, it was a foodie's heaven!

So it's that time again for Let's Get Physical! If you've never heard or participated in it before, I decided to make a little graphic explaining it more:

I have a love-hate relationship with writing these posts because I don't always make the monthly progress I hope for but I still like holding myself accountable. And when I stopped to think about my goals back in September and October, I was pleased with how much undercover progress I've made. Without even celebrating it or trying too hard, I've stopped eating late at night! That's big for me people! Without further ado, here's how I fared this month:

 How did you do this month? Link up from now until Friday, November 9th at 11:00 pm PST. There might be surprise giveaway in the works 😉
