Bootcamp days 11- 18 and a three day pre-wedding juice cleanse, all the week before Thanksgiving

Dec 23, 2014


You guys. Why did no one tell me the week(s) leading up to your wedding are there-is-no-time-to-sleep-brain-overload-this-is-not-a-drill craziness?! As I waxed on unpoetically about my workout goals while surest of sure's you chuckled at my naivete.

 Lesson, painfully learned. 

Pro tip: Future brides, start your to do list item, goals, etc one month (no, two!) earlier than you think you should. Thank me later.

My fitness cry for help went fantastic at first: 1-5, 6-10. Then, things got trickier than a magician. Instead of not making plans since we had wedding logistics to suss out, we were all "yes to every invitation cuz we are just getting married, we got this." 

We didn't "got this". 

Thankfully enough for us slow learners, we began saying "no" as wedding week drew closer, giving us time to strategize, sleep (crazy, I know), and keep that last modicum of sanity I clung to like the finest of pearls.

For shits and giggles, below is my valiant attempt to, "have it all". Feast.

On top of all that bass, I decided I wanted to get in a juice cleanse before the wedding (cuz, why not!) so I turned to Kaeng Raeng, a full on juice cleanse wherein I had to juice each meal would lead me straight to the roof to jump, and paying for a juice cleanse is just -- budget. Alas, compromise. With Kaeng Raeng you have the freedom to mix the packets with water/juice and add fruit/veggies to make smoothies making it easy peasy when i'm on the road for work/running wedding errands, plus eat as much raw fruit/veggie as you want. Winner, winner, chicken dinner. My last go round I didn't drink enough water (like it tells you) and quit 2.5 days in due to headaches and cramps. Drink your water kids. More on my deep affinity for juice cleanses, here.

I always feel ten times better giving my body a reset from time to time. And hey, a little weight loss doesn't suck either.  This time round I lost 2.6 pounds without working out (not because I didn't want to, I just didn't plan my days properly) -- before photos here, and as for measurements, well, I had grand plans.  I measured before (and now can't find it), and forgot to measure after.  Oops.
