Running down the aisle

Let's start with the basics:

Name: Mallory
Age: 27
Height: 5'2''
Weight: 140 lbs
Location: Orlando, FL
Things to know: I am a cake decorator...which makes it hard to eat right. I'm getting married this summer in Hawaii. I've run 4 half marathons but have taken a little hiatus from running due to laziness and missing my running buddy (We stopped running together when she got pregnant, and recently had a beautiful baby boy). My fiance has decided to give running a try so we will be running a 5k in 1 week and, depending on how he likes it, plan to start training for the 2012 Wine & Dine. I also would like to run the 2013 WDW Full Marathon
Healthy Living Goals: This journal will be a combination of my weight loss plans for my wedding and all training aspects for my running events. I want to develop healthy eating habits, slim down for my big day, and become a stronger/faster runner.

I'm looking forward to the journey ahead!

Weight loss and running

I started doing P90X to slim down my waist and to tone my muscles. It's been difficult finding the energy to workout after waking up at 5am (and not getting enough sleep the night before). My fiance gets off work late and I like to spend time with him. I'm finally starting to get into a routine though....I just recently started working early mornings...so my plan is as follows:

5am: Wake Up
6am-3pm: Work
4pm: P90X Workout
5pm/5:30pm:Power Nap
7pm: Healthy Well Balanced Dinner
8:30pm: Running Training
10pm: Bed Time

Sounds doable so we'll see how it works out

Thank you! I'm getting married on June 28, 2012. I've known my fiance since high school and we've been dating 4 1/2 years now. I'm so excited to marry him!

Easter Week

Thanks everyone! Ok well Easter week at work killed me. Too much work and wedding planning and I allowed myself to slack on my workouts. Next week should be slow so I will have the energy to get back on track. The IOA Corporate 5k is Thursday night so I want to be running more.

Well I'm sad to report the only workout I've done was my actual run at the Corporate 5k. Never having trained with my fiance, we found it very difficult to run together. He has long legs and I have very short legs so maintaining the same pace was difficult. That being said, we did have a good run. Our finish time was roughly 42-45 mins (depending on when we actually crossed the start line). Not bad for absolutely no training and being completely unprepared.
The wedding is in 2 months. I am having a hard time actually getting motivated to workout. I want to loose weight and I know I have put a signifigant effort in to it. Every day after work I manage to talk myself out of going to the gym or just putting on my running shoes and stepping out the door. I need to find that drive....something that will push me to look past my excuses and to the gym. That's my goal for tonight. Find a motivation to get me up and keep me going

Think of how good you will look in that dress and how much stamina you will have on your wedding day and night!

I am happy to report that I have been working out regularly. Better yet, I also have improved my diet drastically. I've put a stop to snacking at work (brownies, cookies, chocolates, etc) and I've added a lot more fruits and veggies to my diet. I'm on my way to a better me!

I'm trying to get an appointment for my first fitting for tomorrow...having trouble getting through to anyone right now. I haven't lost any weight so far but I feel more energetic throughout the day so that's improvement!
