I am going to be starting a new series on the blog and wanted to see what your thoughts were! As most of you know, I'm getting married next April so now that we're finally within the 1 year stretch (we have been engaged since last July...long time I know!), I want to start buckling down and getting really serious about fitness/nutrition. I already tried (and failed haha) Whole 30 but that was mainly to see if I have a dairy/gluten intolerance and not because I want to lose weight. It's something I may do closer to the wedding to really lean out but from now up until the wedding, I want to try something a little more attainable. I have been reading a lot about IIFYM (macro counting) and even tried it for a few months last year. I definitely saw a difference especially with working out! For me, I think it's definitely the best fit for my lifestyle and also for the type of results I want to see in my body. If you don't know much about macro counting, I have linked to the If It Fits Your Macros site here.
Anyway--back to the series idea! I'm thinking about doing posts every other Friday just talking about my fitness/nutrition journey and sharing results over the next year leading up to the wedding. I'm going to call it "Sweating for the Wedding" because I see that hashtag all over Instagram and thought it sounded cute! One thing I really LOVE about this idea is that I think it will help keep ME super accountable and will really motivate me to stick to the regimen. If everyone enjoys the posts, I'll probably keep it up after the wedding and just call it "Fitness Friday." I would love to hear your thoughts, tips, and more about your fitness journeys too!
