You know what’s funny? I kind of assumed that the minute I got engaged my metabolism would click into overdrive and I would burn thousands of calories a day simply by being excited. Then, as the big day drew near, the stress would make the pounds melt away and I’d have to eat large amounts of chocolate chip cookies just to maintain a healthy weight. And underneath all those pounds would be these super firm muscles that would make Jillian from The Biggest Loser jealous.
But somehow there was no magical change when Mr. Right proposed. I was too excited to eat for about a day, and then I was back to my normal self. And so now, three months from the big day, I’m suddenly feeling highly motivated to get my tushy in gear, even if it means setting my alarm for 5:45 in the morning. That, my friends, is true love. Or at least, I want my hiney to look great in those jeans for our engagement pics.
Thankfully, Mr. Right will gladly take me just the way I am, but my whole life I wanted to look smokin’ hot on my wedding day, and by golly, it’s going to happen. And so for now, my new best friend is the guy from the P90X videos.
