Damn you Reese’s Pieces. Damn you.
They just sit there at work. Everyday. All orange, and yellow, and peanut butter-y. Today I had 11 of them already. They go straight to the heart of my sweet tooth every time I pass the kitchen. They know what they do.
Since we all know what’s coming up in just 152 days (btw a holy cow! is in order there – where does the time go?!), I really need to make sure I cut down on the sweets and get serious in the gym. I want to be confidant on my wedding day, feel fresh, light and happy — not worry about an imaginary belly bulge beneath my white dress.
I know I’m not the only bride with a sweet tooth she hates to deny. I also know I’m not the only bride who wants to be at her beautiful best on the big day. And, you’d also think that with just 5 months to go, I’d be a little more serious about my diet and workout regimen.
I am serious, or usually, anyway.
However, I’ve let the longer work hours and mental exhaustion take the best of me instead of pushing through it and just getting to the gym – which is never as bad once I get there. I have also been a victim of under-eating during my busy day and making up for the lost time with the sweet treats. This, as you can imagine, is not a good combination. Go figure.
Lately, I’ve been better at hitting the gym – but not so much on the sugar end. Once I get back into the habit, it’s never easy to get out. I’ve been out . . . I like out . . . I need to get out again. I need to deny my sucker instinct for the pretty pastries at Starbucks, my delicious, hand-made fry sauce with Red Robin bottom-less fries, the mini Milky Way bag in my freezer at home . . . oh yes, and not to forget, the devilish Reese’s Pieces who are currently kickin’ my butt.
Time to get serious. Time to get motivated.
A little flair seems to be in order here — inspired by my fave decade ;):
