I know it's been a while since my last update...I told myself that I'd blog again when I lose the 15 pounds and guess what?! As of this week, I have shed a little over 15 pounds and now have 10 more pounds to go. Well..weight loss isn't too important as long as I can comfortably fit into my old jeans and maintain a healthier lifestyle. In case you missed my personal entry, click here before you read further.
It feels like it's been a long journey of self discipline, healthy eating (not dieting) and exercising almost everyday, but I feel so much lighter & I definitely have more energy throughout the day. Seriously, all I think about these days is trying out different healthy recipes to cook at home, testing different work out routines (I joined a women's bootcamp last month and I have a love/hate relationship with the program. lol!) and think about how I can continue to build a healthy lifestyle for life. Once I lose all the pregnancy weight, I'm planning to do a full blog post about what has worked for me, which I'm hoping will be by the end of May or June. Losing the 15 pounds doesn't look too dramatic, but there is one behavioral difference my husband has noticed and it's that I spend so much more time exercising than browsing online! :)
As I was watching what I was feeding my body, I've also come to realize that I needed to make a conscious effort in what I was feeding my brain as well. I came to realize that too much information about various weddings & resources sometimes cause me to envy other people's work (we begin by coveting what we see every day) or just 'copy' someone else's idea other than really listening to our clients' ideas and bring about fresh, innovative design concepts. If you were following me on Twitter & Facebook, I stopped tweeting because I was being way too distracted by all the beautiful weddings out there that are constantly being updated through social media. Although I do think that Twitter is a great social media tool to stay connected with the industry and other event professionals, I'm a one track minded person and I really needed to take a break from social media in general to focus on myself & family...at least for now.
Anyway, to celebrate my weight loss & the ongoing journey, I decided to give away one copy of the latest winter/spring issue of Serendipity Magazine! I was honored to see Lydia and Ricardo's wedding published on their latest issue. So simply leave a comment with your email address by March 27th and I'll pick a random winner! This issue is packed with so much eye candy real weddings and great articles!
