Welcome! My name is Mrs.G and I started this blog so people could share in my mis-adventures in wedding planning. I married my southern gentleman on September 6th, 2009. Throughout our courtship I became enamored with everything southern and desperately want to become a steel magnolia.

The Healthy Life: a week down 45 more to go

Well I did it! I lost 2 lbs this week!

What I learned this week:
-I found it was actually easy to stay on track and count my calories...during the week
- The weekends are going to be killer, I need to find a hobby that keeps me busy
-I need to plot my meal times better, 2 nights last week I came home so hungry, blood sugar crashing that hubs almost had to pry Christmas candy from my hands.
- Now that I am getting comfortable, I need to kick up my exercise.

I am off to a great start, but I find that I am left wanting in the exercise department.

While the wii fit makes exercise fun, I am burning calories and that is it. I know the wii has strength training and yoga but when your butt doesn't fit on the board it is just uncomfortable. I don't want to loose all this and still be flabby. So I am starting a hunt for something at home, that will help me build and tone my muscles.

I have heard great things about Jillian Michael's 30 day shred, granted I think I am going to feel the effects of my old life style while trying to do a push up. I am going to compare and see which one I think is going to be the best for my goal.

Something to look forward too: being able to dance again. For 3 years I was a highland dancer and I was the greatest at it but I loved it. I loved all of it, the kilts, bag pipes, the big pounding bass drum and it just made me smile inside and out. But as my weight began to sky rocket, I had to stop dancing. I didn't know I had bad feet and knees until I gained 60 lbs, my body couldn't handle it. I walked away from something that made me happy, that challenged me, and was one hell of a good work out. I can't wait until I can strap up my gillies and starting flinging again!
