So have you all heard of the "Newlywed 10"??
Probably not because I completely just made it up.
Anyway....I'm here today to explain to you what happens when you get married (maybe not to everyone....just to the girls who love wine and chocolate and nachos like me).
When you get married you start to relax a bit.
A bit too much in my case.
Before my wedding I was in fantastic shape. I was working out 5 days a week and was toned and fit and feeling fantastic.
Once the wedding and honeymoon were over I felt like I could relax and not watch what I ate.
Why should I?
I don't have a dress to fit into this year or a bikini to wear on a Hawaiian honeymoon.
I have no idea how much weight I've gained since getting married....because I don't keep a scale in my house....never have. I never have any clue how much I weigh unless I've recently been to the doctors (and even then I tend to glance away when the number comes up because I don't think numbers matter).
It's all about how you feel.
And lately....I'M NOT FEELING SO GOOD.
I always know when it's time to hit the gym harder based on how well my pants fit.....and a few days before Christmas it took me a good 4 minutes to dance around my bedroom and "shimmy" into my skinny jeans. (Hubby has seen said "shimmy" and HATES it)
So I'm going to do something about all of this.
What better way to FORCE myself to get back into shape in 2013 then by putting the dreaded "BEFORE" picture on my blog??
(Hubby took one too since he's doing this with me but he specifically said "DO NOT PUT THIS ON YOUR BLOG, SHANN!)
I'm not gonna lie....I sat here on Photoshop for a couple minutes and played around with some editing techniques and tried to give myself a spray tan and add some more eye liner....then I erased it.
This is ALL about being real, lovelies.....so HERE it is......
I'm not sorry.....I've enjoyed all of the trips to Chipotle and our local pizza joint since getting married but I'm eager and ready to kick my ass back in shape.....so next Friday you can expect a week 2 update.
With a combination of watching what I eat, hitting the gym/yoga regularly again and actually attempting some P90x with my hubby I know I'll get back on track.
We'll see about cutting out some of my wine intake too....just maybe:)
On a completely different note....is my bikini in the picture above pink or orange??
Because I'm pretty sure when I bought it last year it was called "neon orange" and unless I'm color blind that looks pretty damn pink to me.
Anyhoo...Happy Friday, lovelies.......and thanks for helping kick my ass back into shape. Feel free to share tips with me! Unless you're going to tell me to run....because I'd rather chew off my left leg than run....AND I'm allergic to running.....seriously.....there's a real medical term for it.
