Slim Down Team Work!

Any brides who want to team up and help each other slim down for their gown with me? I don't have social media, there aren't a lot of gym classes near me and I'm having trouble staying motivated on my own to lose the last 30 pounds before my December wedding!

    It was actually in cooled container - something like a horizontal fridge with separate containers for each flavor. With lots of sprinklers, sides and sauces on the side. It was awesome and I want it badly.

    Thank you when I get stressed I reach for Dr. Pepper. At one point I was drinking 3 to 4 bottles a day, I am down to 1 a day most days. We will probably do a waltz or something classic, weve never really been anywhere where dancing was a thing so its a lot of feeling it out lol.

    I had clementines for breakfast and a yogurt for lunch with water. Just ate dinner where we had a pork tenderloin and crescent rolls. Mmmm. My day went alright, theres someone at work thats been causing problems so I finally went to the supervisor about it.

    An ice cream bar sounds awesome and some days you take a step back but you got this and will get back on track tomorrow. I adore ice cream and would have failed as well.

    Crescent rolls sound super tasty!! Im glad you went to your supervisor about work issues. There's too much stuff to deal with anyway, and someone causing problems needs to be dealt with swiftly.
    I had a salad for lunch (romaine lettuce, carrot, red onion, black olives, feta with a pomegranate balsamic/olive oil/salt and pepper/oregano/garlic powder dressing...all prepped and made at home), and we're using leftover baked chicken in a chicken soup for dinner. I did have a vodka cranberry when I got home though....

    That dinner sounds really good too. I double up our meals too when we dont eat it all. A vodka cranberry sounds really nice as well. I dont drink often plus it is one of many things that aggravates my rosacea, not that it matters too much right now because the rosacea is super angry from having to wear a mask at work. We did get in a walk today!

    A little stressful. Day 3 of nursing school and the program coordinator told me she wouldn't excuse me for 2 days of clinical for my wedding but had the nerve to say "why don't you just move your wedding?"...seriously?!

    How was your day overall? I try to only drink on the weekend but sometimes things work out differently. I only had one drink so I'm not going to tear myself down about it. (I've been trying to practice self love and stuff). Do you use a Serum or oil at night? Ever since I started using one my redness has cleared up! I'm proud of you for getting a walk in! That's fantastic!! Smiley smile

    Nothing wrong with the occasional drink! Overall my day was alright. We are having absolutely gorgeous weather right now, highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s. I have to be very careful about what I use, anything with a scent is out and Ive never really found anything that helps the redness. For me a good day is a day without a burning/itching rash across my face. With wearing the mask at work I havent been able to get the rash to go away, when we were allowed to stop wearing masks at work it took me 2 months to get my rosacea back under control!!! Then they reinforced the mask mandate due to the delta variant. Really hoping this isnt an issue next year.

    I use a Saffron oil from Ranavat every night. It's helped my skin by leaps and bounds. I despise the mask mandates personally.

    You got this!!! It will be hard but worth it in the end!!! Just make sure you take small moments occasionally to step away and take a breath.

    I was an Air Force medic for 7 years. I think I'll be fine as long as I don't get bogged down in the pointless stuff. 104 more days until this semester is over, and our wedding is in 97 days!!!!!
