Taking it to the next level

Hey there friends! I hope everyone is having a wonderful week…can you believe April is almost over?!?!?! This month has flown by and I can’t believe I will be Mrs. April in less than 6 months…WOWZA!! While we’ve been doing well with diet and exercise, it’s time to kick it up a notch. My bridal shower and the christening of my godson Brayden are in just a little over two weeks and we both want to look our best for the big events.

For me, this means watching my carbohydrate intake and adding some extra core work. For Phil, this means adding in some extra cardio and strength work but no real dietary changes. I find it so interesting how men and women have such varying reactions to diet and lifestyle changing…it’s so fascinating! Even though I am doing about 60 minutes of cardio 5x a week and practicing yoga daily, my carbohydrate intake has not necessarily helped me loose any weight. I have been getting stronger and building muscle but now I’d like to drop a little around the waistline and inner thighs, hahaha!

Just like always I am not going to deprive myself entirely BUT by cutting out half my carbohydrates and incorporating a little more core focus into my yoga practices I know things will continue to change.

I can’t wait for all the excitement of May but am going to do my best to stay in the moment and enjoy this last week or so of April (soon to be my favorite month, haha!)!!!

’til next time, keep smiling! 🙂
