It's Crunch Time...Literally

Only 1.5 months until the wedding.  WHERE HAS THE TIME GONE?!?  It seems like we just got engaged, but that was 15 months ago!  Since I only have a short amount of time until the wedding, I really need to get moving on my fitness.  

I had a dress fitting about a week ago and I feel great in my dress.  I feel confident and beautiful.  I think the dress fits perfectly.  Do I feel the same confidence in a bikini?  Nope!  And since we are going to Atlantic City for our honeymoon and I plan on spending some time each day on the beach or at the pool, I need to get in bikini shape.

I don't think I'm fat and I'm not trying to loose weight.  I just want to feel confident when I see myself in a bikini.  I'm just not there yet.  I want to tone and tighten some specific areas, so I'm going to work hard these next 6 weeks to do that.  I'm hoping that putting this on my blog will help hold me accountable.  

Kevin and I usually go for at least a mile long walk with the dog every night.  I know these walks are better than nothing, but it's just not enough for me.  I need some more cardio.  So I started following the Beginner 5K Training Plan on RunKeeper.  I have the app on iphone, so every time we go for a walk or do any other type of activity, I track it through RunKeeper.  The training plans are great, and I plan to continue to follow the 5K plan to help me get back in to running.

I also need to start doing some toning exercises.  There are some great workouts on the ToneItUp site that I'll be using, along with some I've found on Pinterest.  I think incorporating one cardio workout and one toning workout each day will make a big difference in these next 6 weeks.

This is another place I need to make some major improvements.  I just need to make some smarter choices. I need to snack on healthier foods instead of junk food.  That will be a huge helper for me.  I don't think I eat terrible, but hopefully just some simple changes (especially in my snacking) will make a difference.

So like I said, it's crunch time...literally...gotta get those abs toned and ready for Atlantic City!
