Need to Kick It Up a Notch

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

We received a wedding invitation for our friends' wedding in July. My BF was asked to be in the wedding party, so he is starting to worry about not being in the best shape for a fitting. I wonder if this is the little push that will get him to start eating healthy and exercising. We will see...

This also motivates me to really stick to my healthy eating habits. I haven't been eating horribly, but my diet could stand some improvement. I have a few pretty dresses that would be perfect for the wedding, but I don't fit into any of them. I would hate to go shopping for a dress in my current size since I don't plan on staying this size. The wedding is on July 2nd, so this gives me roughly 10 weeks to lose enough weight to fit into my dress. I could lose 10 to 20 lbs in that time. If I lose 10 lbs, I could maybe fit into one of my dresses, but probably not look my best. However, losing 20 lbs will definitely get me into one of those dresses.

A friend recommended Jillian Michaels' 30-Day Shred. I have the video, but I've heard so many bad reviews especially about aggravating or causing injury to the knees. I have a knee injury that has not given me much problem since starting P90, and I would hate to be sidelined by a knee issue right now. Have any of my SparkFriends done the 30-Day Shred? What did you think of it?

    I haven't done the 30 Day Shred either, but good luck! Maybe you could modify some of the moves so it won't hurt your knee.

    I haven't done the shred. I do some on demand tv videos and if they do something I'm not comfortable with, I substitute lunges or squats while they do that. Its great to have something coming up to work towards, You can do it!
