Today marks 8 weeks until our Big Day & while I am so excited to be marrying the love of my life, I’m slowly freaking out a little about not only ALLLLLLLL the things I need to accomplish between now and then, but also and more importantly I’m not 100% happy with myself physically right now.
I do consider myself lucky - I have never had to count my calories, and that is something I do not take for granted so I still watch what I eat. I mainly focus on exercise for my mental health, and I don’t really have any structured physical goals. Usually my exercise consists of walks/runs or most recently some resistance/circuit work. All I know is that to stay sane I need to do something every 3 to 4 days. My mind thanks me for it later on, so I try and prioritize it if I can!
As a bride-to-be, my personal goal is to feel really happy and healthy. I don’t need abs of steal. I don’t need to be able to lift my own weight, or to run at supersonic speeds. What I do want is to FEEL healthy and happy. I think that’s kind of important when I’m going to have 150+ of our nearest and dearest family & friends staring at me when I tell my beloved and best friend how much I love him! So I will have to do some structured training, and consider a menu plan.
Over the next 8 weeks I’ll share with you what I’m doing, what I’m focusing on and what I think all brides need to think about the most – THEMSELVES. This whole wedding hoopla is fun, crazy and if I’m honest, somewhat intimidating! A quick google search tells me that at the 10 week mark I should have already achieved X, Y & Z. I can tell you that I have a lot of catching up to do.
So you will be my inspiration! Together we can focus on fitness, wellness & managing the trials and tribulations of planning a wedding (one of which was to tell my mum she can’t invite 7 of her girlfriends from her tennis club).
