I became a fitness junkie after I got engaged. A common story I know. Girl meets ________ (fill in the blank). __________ proposes and girl sweats and squirms, diets and dreams of the day she’ll have to fit into that dress. Oh, that big, fluffy, stunning white dress haunted me like a pimply high school photo.
And so it began. I signed up for a personal trainer, started Spinning seven days a week, attended lifting, toning and tightening classes until I was too sore to walk.
Everytime I settled onto my cycling bike I pictured the dress. It was a white cloud that followed me around Manhattan.
Now I’ve been married for a year and change and I am still working my tush like tomorrow is my wedding day. It’s no longer for fear of fitting into the dress. Now, I wake up at around 5:15am everyday to sweat, cycle, live and lunge because it’s a passion like rowing or beer brewing.
So, I am challenging you as I challenge myself to work out for the entire month of August - all 31 days - rain or shine. By the time Mercedes Benz Fashion Week begins in Sept., I should be in tip, top shape! And if all goes well (no broken bones), the adventure will continue!
