Fitness Friday: It Still Fits, The Boy Gets Healthy, and More on Hot Patrick)!

It’s another Fitness Friday and guess what? IT STILL FITS! Woot! That’s big news from someone with a looong history of losing weight and then quickly gaining it all back (and then some). I definitely still need to lose more weight (5-10 pounds) but things are looking good as we roll into the homestretch.

What concerns me now is that I’ve had to say goodbye to Hot Patrick.

That’s right. Hot Patrick has left us for greener pastures (a better job at a gym closer to his home and family) and I’m super concerned about what’s going to happen after the wedding – what or WHO will motivate me then? Because y’all, it’s EASY for me to slack off and gain weight. I hate exercising (all that stuff about how you’ll end up loving it and miss it when you can’t do it – CRAP.). I love chips, and bacon cheeseburgers, and Pepsi. I like sitting on my ass in front of the TV or computer for hours at a time.

So, you see my dilemma. Should I try and meet up with Hot Patrick once a month for a refresher at his new gym (the Anytime Fitness on Bulverde Road in San Antonio, Texas – go visit!)? Should I try really hard to like one of the other personal trainers at my gym (which I really don’t – they’re nice and all but not what I’m looking for)? Should I go back to using Oxygen magazine for all my workout routines? What Would Team Tulle Do? P.S. That TOTALLY needs to be on a T-shirt!

In the meantime, The Boy has suddenly (one month before our wedding) decided it was time to lose weight *insert eye roll here*. It’s really nice and I’ve been working really hard to support him (we’re eating pretty damn cleanly these days) but… I’m a wee bit pissed that he wandered into a vitamin store one day, talked to a personal trainer there, and now is telling me all the stuff I’ve been telling him FOR MONTHS. It’s becoming very hard not to kick him in his special place (and pretty much only because I want to have children).

Also, for my last 5-10 pounds before the wedding, I’m thinking of tackling this challenge:

Looks to me like it’s a relatively safe and healthy way to lose the extra pounds in a short time frame. But! I’m no expert – what’s y’alls take on it? Does it look dangerous? Safe? Like it would work? Does anyone want to do it with me? Because y'all KNOW that I still need my support team! As always, I’m putting it out there and asking Team Tulle for your support. Bug me on Twitter, Facebook, check out my Fitness board on Pinterest, and be my friend on My Fitness Pal (I’m akbuilt – invite me to be your friend and I’ll add you to my group!). And please, please keep those practical fitness tips and nutritional suggestions coming – they are REALLY helpful to me.
