Bring On The Sunshine!

Its official: my soon-to-be hubby booked our honeymoon!

Cancun it is!
And now I need all of the inspiration possible to get into wedding shape :)

1. Buy a bathing suit to hang in the bathroom as a reminder of "get in shape" goals!

Target special: an essential on my budget.

2. Scour old magazines to find inspirational pictures to stick wherever is convenient

love it!

the band-aids make me smile :P

3. Start a 3 day apple detox to kick off this pre-wedding initiative

3 days of eating just apples to help clean up my digestion, complexion, and cravings!

4. Put together a work out/diet plan to actively accomplish my goals

-mostly raw fruits and veggies
-no dairy, sugar, or meat
-minimal starchy carbs

Work out:
a combination of pilates, running, and stretching with some free weight work

Most Importantly:

5. Keep first things first!

Truly my soul finds rest in God;
my salvation comes from him.
Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.
Psalm 62:1-2

I want to be a beautiful bride, but not just on the outside. The beauty will last for a day, but what is buried deep in my heart and soul, staying focused the One who gives purpose, will last forever.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
I know I will, apple filled and all :P


  1. Ahhhh, congrats on booking the honeymoon!! That is SO exciting!!!!! I told myself that I was going to diet and workout before the wedding, but I didn't. We still had a blast on our honeymoon and I was so comfortable around my hubby!!
