The more beady-eyed of you might have noticed my absence of late but I promise you there is a legitimate excuse! I have finally, after 10 months of burying my head in the sand, have SET MY WEDDING DATE. I’ll be getting married in late February which means I have only 5 months to get this show on the road. Frantic venue-viewing, registrar-booking, wedding-dress buying and craft-making have literally left me with no time for anything. But, with the bulk of the organising now completed, The Beauty Locker is back. With a vengeance.
I must admit that anything remotely healthy has gone out the window but with the panic mostly over, it’s time to get back on the horse and ride that beast. I always need an incentive to exercise and this is the perfect one. I don’t fancy being a rotund bride and certainly don’t want to look back at photos of said rotundness. And then there’s the honeymoon…no one wants to be mistaken for a beached whale while on supposedly the most romantic holiday of their life.
Saying that, I did go to a Bums, Tums & Thighs class a week ago and I still wake up in the morning feeling like I’ve been run over by a bus – must have been some workout! Definitely not just for mums as first assumed.
I’m too scared to weigh myself at the moment (sound familiar?) but this week should be a very active week. And with the weather cooling slightly, I’m excited to get running again. I’ve also been discovering that the lack of groceries in the fridge is wreaking havoc with my eating habits. When all there is in the fridge is chicken past its use-by date and a sorry looking onion, it’s been all too easy to surrender to half a loaf of tiger bread.
Even by writing this post and looking at pictures of sexy ladies, I already feel motivated. Let’s see how this week pans out, hey?
