Beginning of 2017 + Recap of 2016

Wednesday, January 25, 2017

I've neglected this blog for a whole year,
A lot has happened, however I still never reached my goals.

2016 RECAP
In the year of 2016, I would work out here and there
but would not stay committed or consistent. 
I also tried out crossfit for the first time of my life
with a personal trainer and also separately at a different location,
and it was pretty cool. They work you out super hard
and everyone is there supporting you.
I did crossfit for about 5-6months about 2x/week.
I wasn't really keeping track of my diet, 
even though I was given a meal plan by my trainer.
I tried it for the first couple of weeks and I was not having it.

this was my before pic of jan 2016

my 3 month after photo in march, subtle difference..

After crossfit, I tried going back to the gym.
The last time I went to the gym consistently
and trained super hard was in 2013.
I noticed a big change within 3 months of working out
5-6x/week, some days no rest day.
So I figured i would try going to the gym again,
on my own time rather than by following a class schedule.
I wanted to see results quickly,
but being human, my motivation went down hill.

Crossfit class on the day of my 26th b-day early in the morning 6am

I would go to the gym some times 2x/week
sometimes none.. and I definitely wasn't watching what I ate.
I started to put on weight again.. maybe the heaviest
i've ever been. I can feel it in my clothes, my attitude was always down.
I hated going out bc that meant I had to dress up, and my
clothes weren't fitting me well.

The day we got engaged!

I got engaged on July 31, 2016
and took engagement photos in Hawaii 
in October, and it was such a struggle
to fit into my dresses. I was very frustrated
and felt unhappy. The pictures turned out gorgeous,
the photographer did a good job,
but Just looking at myself, 
and how much weight i've gained just
made me very unhappy.

I figured after the thanksgiving holiday I would go back
and try and be consistent. 

We decided on the date of our wedding which would be
on November 11, 2017.
I bought my wedding dress already in September,
so right now i'm pretty motivated to lose weight to fit into my
dress appropriately!! I would also like to look
amazing in our honeymoon trip after the wedding.
So that is my goal and motivation for this year! 

2017, i'm coming for you!
