DAYS UNTIL THE WEDDING: 50 With the wedding quickly approaching (!), my schedule is getting tighter and my wedding dress is getting looser. Between wedding planning, work, working out, spending time with Brian, etc...sometimes I feel like I'm in that new movie with Sarah Jessica Parker, I Don't Know How She Does It. Ah!
To remain in a zen-like bridal state, here are some tips/tricks I find extremely helpful...sneak peek, there's a chance for you to win some new workout clothesÃ¢â‚¬”retail therapy is the best...
Sound the alarm. No matter what I have to do, I add it to my calendar, which gives me a little beep reminder for each task. I even have date night on my calendar (my favorite)! I have to remember nothingÃ¢â‚¬”I just respond to the alarm.
Lay out workout clothes the night before. I prefer to exercise in the morning, but I still need a nudge to get moving. When my alarm goes off, I see my clothes waiting for me, and I just can't let them down.
Take it with a grain of salt. Everyone has an opinion, and I am far from perfect. If someone criticizes (it happens) something wedding or health related, I shrug it off. If something really bothers me, I have a venting sessionÃ¢â‚¬”normally to BrianÃ¢â‚¬”and then wash my hands of it.
Tomorrow is a new day. This past weekend, I had a piece of birthday cakeÃ¢â‚¬Â¦it was amazing. Do I feel guilty about it? No way. I ate clean this week, I'm still on target for reaching my goal, and I feel great. No cake this weekend, though.
Treat yourself. I recently got some awesome clothes from Via PrivÃƒÂ© [pictured below], a Boston-based, yoga-inspired activewear company, and since September is National Yoga Month, I wanted to share some new clothes with you before the month is over!
