Last 10 Pound Bootcamp's Maria Thomas Ready to Shred: Video Blog #2
Nutritionist and slice.ca Ask an Expert extraordinaire Maria Thomas is getting married August 26 and needs to trim some weight to fit into her wedding dress! When we heard this here at Slice we asked her politely (okay, maybe cajoled a little) if she would video blog her experience. Of course, she's using Tommy Europe's book, The 10-Pound Shred! Read her posts every Wednesday all this month!
I started the 10-pound shred about a week ago, and despite my best intentions, I've been moving along at snail speed! I've started reading it, but have only just started getting into it. I have to laugh a little because it's almost as though as soon as i decided to video blog my experience with Tommy's 10-Pound Shred program, so many things started going wrong with the wedding planning! The biggest thing: my bridesmaids dresses are the WRONG colour! And unfortunately it wasn't a mistake where they looked better than my original choice of deep purple, they came back the shade of....well, let's just say, remember Barney the Dinosaur? Yep, that`s the shade. Barney-Purple. *sigh*
Aside from the mishaps, I still want to look fantastic in my dress, so I've decided to take pictures of myself to use as motivation to keep me on track, particularly of the areas i want to work on. Taking pictures is actually one of the things Tommy suggests in the book, too. I've printed it and keep it with me just as a reminder, to help me stay on track and keep me motivated... especially as I'm currently staring at the croissant my fiance brought home from his morning walk with our dog, Madden...
That's it for now! I would love to hear your feedback and I will keep you posted with updates!
