I'm MARRIED!!! Well, yesterday I came back from my Honeymoon so I thought it would only be right to finish up this blog. =)

The week before my wedding was a disaster. I went "home" to my parents' house on Monday night. Monday morning was the last time I weighed in before the wedding...I was 132.something. Right before I left to go out of town I had a complete meltdown. I was upset because I didn't get to pack for my Honeymoon so I was having to bring everything I owned with me. My car was jam packed and I was a nervous mess. I thought I would have time to get things perfect before I left. Ugh. I was wrong.

So once I got home I had a million family members from out of the country awaiting my arrival. It was wonderful seeing them all! But I couldn't help being depressed because it was pouring rain like a hurricane all of Tuesday, Wednesday and most of Thursday. It didn't look so good for my Friday outdoor wedding. I had a few major crying sessions and I was running around town all three days like a crazy woman. I was trying to pack for my Honeymoon and buy last minute Honeymoon necessities (backpack, hiking socks, few shirts, travel cosmetics, etc). I also had a lot of wedding details to finish up.

During the time that I was home, I didn't diet too much but then again I didn't pig out. I got to workout twice...very short workouts that involved running a few blocks and doing all sorts of circuit exercises using my body weight and 5 pound hand weights. Each workout was about 30 minutes long but I made them count.

It rained on the morning of my wedding but it cleared up by about 1pm. I got to have my outdoor ceremony! We even got to take a second session of outdoor pictures at 11:30pm or so right before a storm hit once again! We got pretty lucky. The morning of the wedding didn't go too smoothly. I wish that I had gotten a lot of details done way ahead of time and planned out that day better. I was pretty stressed out until about 3pm.

The wedding turned out to be beautiful! The flowers and centerpieces were amazing. The food was awesome, the music was good. Frankie looked so handsome and I was so happy to finally be his wife. Everyone seemed to have a great time. It passed so quickly! I am just anxiously waiting to get the photos from the photographer.

In the end, I can honestly say that my hard work payed off. I was really pleased with the changes I made in my body. I didn't feel uncomfortable in my own skin like I feared. I felt AWESOME! I got a million compliments. One of my second cousins actually made me go to the bathroom with her during a brunch the day after the wedding in order to show her my abs. She said I inspired her!

I think there will only be two more posts on this blog. One, to show off some wedding pics. And two, to give the link to my new "married" fitness blog once I start it.

Thank you everyone so much for all of your support. I don't know how I would have done this without so much positive feedback and encouragement. Doing this blog kept me accountable and motivated for 100 days. Thats more than I ever really expected.


  1. I'm so glad everything worked out! I can't wait until we are married (99 days!!!) so all this stress can be over. I'm quite sure it will only get worse but at least I can just daydream about the day of and hope that everything falls in to place. I can't wait to see the pics!!!

  2. Ah i'm so glad that everything work out for you, it sounds like you had a beautiful day and all of your hard work paid off! So glad that you're having a married fitness blog... your posts are inspiring! Enjoy being married! Can't wait to see your pictures!
