After not being able to work out for three months due to various reasons, last month I made my come-back, well sort of. I started running again, and despite a few ailments, it felt good to be back at the gym. Normal. I started off slow, going for time on the clock as opposed to mileage, then I changed it up. Last week I was able to make two miles, which I know isn’t much, but for me it is, and this week I have run two miles three times, with an attempt to hit said mark on Monday, but settling for one and a half instead (at least I was able to hit it the rest of the week!). I haven’t used weights yet, but am thinking about trying them out in another month or two, and I attended my first yoga class (first in a while) last week. I may do yoga at home this weekend since my boyfriend will be occupied with Bachelor party festivities and the plans that I had had fell through.
My goal? To lose around ten pounds. There are a couple of reasons for this, one being that I just want to lose a little weight, and the other being that I am attending a wedding at the end of next month, and I want to better fit into a dress that has been sitting in my closet since I bought it nearly two years ago. It is a Roberto Cavalli silk halter gown, done in the patchwork that he is famous for and…it is simply beautiful. So, why would I buy a dress that doesn’t fit me? It’s not that it doesn’t fit, it’s that it could fit better. Yes, I do have other dresses that I could where, but I really want to wear this one.
With the wedding only a month and a half away, I don’t have that much time if I’m going to be able to wear that dress. It’s crunch time. I know that if I work hard enough, I can do it. Plus, I have just scheduled a mini vacation with Billy a few weeks before the wedding, which gives me extra motivation. I know it’ll all be worth it when I put that dress on and it fits me perfectly :).
