Back… and Ready For More!

It’s official! The bridal diet is over, ’cause I’m married! Matt and I were married on August 18th, and it’s been fun and games ever since.
All of the hard work I put into dieting and working out paid off. I felt like a beautiful, blushing bride and all the sweat was worth […]

Eight Weeks Away

It’s crunch time…
My fiance and I are now only eight weeks from our impending nuptuals. Now, don’t get me wrong, I am very excited about getting married. But, I wish I had more time! I feel like my fitness routine has come to a standstill. I don’t know if I’m bored, or stressed, or tired… […]

Keeping On and Keeping it Off

Wedding Countdown: 99 days
This bride-to-be could not be happier! The majority of the wedding planning is done and I’ve managed to retain my sanity. Two weeks ago, I wrote about my new workout routine of weight lifting and cardio. I’ve been maintaining that routine for about a month now, and I can’t stop gushing about […]

It’s been about a month since this bride has blogged about her quest for wedding day perfection… and boy is she glad she’s been away for a while. Why? Because it gave me time to really focus on my routine and maintain it. I started taking weight lifting classes at my gym, running every other […]

The Perfect Pasta Salad

I am taking a break from wedding-diet blogging this week to share a new recipe. My fiancee and I are were tired of eating the same ol’ stuff, so we whipped up a pasta salad from scratch. If you like Mediterranean food, it’s the recipe for you! The best thing about this […]

A New Home, a New Outlook on Fitness

I’m less than five months from my wedding and things are starting to get slightly more stressful than I anticipated. My fiancee and I just bought a house and are in the process of moving in, which hasn’t made things any easier.
The more I’ve put on my plate, the more I’ve thought about how important […]

Did I actually lose weight? YES!

Okay, so I know the headline is exciting… but my victory is admittedly a small one. I’ve lost two pounds over the last two weeks. However, although I would like to have seen more weight come off, I know that I am losing at a healthy rate.
Cutting caffeine out of my diet definitely […]

Fit Fare for a Fit Bride

I think I finally have this bridal diet thing down!
In the last two weeks, so much has changed. My fiance and I bought a house! When everything started happening, I was scared that I would let the stress take over. But, surprisingly, I kept it together. I followed my food and […]
