Part 1 (exercise)
This is the final week of my "Buff Brides" 24 week program, and I cannot even believe the results.I had to get measured for two bridesmaids dresses on Saturday, and had the pleasure of standing uncomfortably in my skivvies, with my pasty winter skin glowing under the florescent lighting, as a tiny little seamstress wrapped a tape measure around my "bust", "waist" & "hips", always a joy. Boy was I surprised! Not only has the weight melted off, but I have lost lots of inches as well! Lifting weights has transformed my figure, and the book outlines everything so clearly that it has been quick and easy. For anyone, at any fitness level this book will totally rock your world! I am just pretty panicked because I don't know what to start after I finish the last workout!
Part 2 (diet)
Ok, so I haven't exactly been eating as well as I have been exercising. I love sugar, I just love it, candy, cupcakes, sweets of any kind-it may very well be an addiction:( Hubs is an avid "Crossfitter" and part of the lifestyle they promote involves a "Paleo Diet"-aka "The Caveman Diet". His gym started a 38 day "paleo challenge" to help improve performance (weight lighting abilities) and overall health-supposedly there are lots of benefits to it. Well somehow, I had a moment of weakness and told him I WOULD DO IT WITH HIM!!! We took "before" pictures, and he showed me the list of what we could eat , I am still looking for the flour, sugar, butter, vanilla, and confectioners sugar, but I cant seem to find it anywhere on the list.
Today is day #2 and so far I have only tried to gouge my eyes out once. I will be cheating on Saturday for my birthday, I will drink wine and eat cake, but I am going to try to make that the only day I do so for the next 38. Wish me luck!
I hope I don't end up looking like this guy.....( I would love his french fries though)
