Here we are, folks, finally!
Coming to you as Mrs. Hall!! (That is so weird). We finally pulled it off, after 26 months, two wedding plannings, and one hurricane, we had the most perfect, most fun, most amazing day! I am so happy to be able to finally call Tom my husband and to move forward!
Here are some pictures I have not shared on any soch meeds yet because I am waiting for our photographer’s version, but since you all took the time to read this and be here, I want to share them with you!
You could say I’m obsessed.
As I noted on instagram, I ended my hard core wedding prep about a week prior to the wedding, as my dress fit perfectly and I was not about to mess that up, also, I was not going to have time for all my workout and was not going to miss out on all the good wedding week food being stringent about my diet!
Here is that post from instagram, with my final pictures!
I ended at 137 pounds, thats five pounds down from where I started, and lost an inch from my waist, and half an inch from my hips, half and inch from both legs. I have more definition in my legs, arms, and abs than I ever have!
The best part about wedding prep, was it was really doable! I never felt deprived (outside of alcohol because I am 26 years old and love beer, wine, and tequila- sue me). I was able to eat foods I love, and quite a bit of them. “Dieting” does not have to suck, y’all.
I have taken the past week to be pretty lax on tracking my macros and diet, also gave myself a few days to recovery from working out but am a little more on track now. I am still at 138, while I little puffy from all the good food! (#noregrets)
I plan to stay in the caloric deficit for a bit longer, as I am still have some fat I could do without, and that that I do not have a dress to worry about I am going to keep trying to shed some of that! However, I do plan on going out for more drinks with my husband because we love to do that and I missed that!
When I reach my goal, I am going to reverse diet out of this deficit, gradually adding back macros, to insure little fat gain back. This is key! (Don’t worry I’ll keep you all informed on that!)
As far as workouts go, I am starting a new pilot group training program in July. This is something I hope to open to the public in the fall. I will be posting how you can join the pilot group later this month!
I am writing and testing workouts that will go in that program, so I am having fun with my workouts! I have cut cardio down to 2-3 HIIT sessions a week (orangetheory and on my own).
Seriously, thank you to all of you who supported me through this! We had the best day and I felt absolutely perfect! I couldn’t have done it without this motivator!
I have so many awesome things in the works including online training programs, group training, new research blogs, reviews, and videos!
Stayed tuned and stay strong, powerful, and beautiful, like a lady!
