On top of Dietbet hosted by Jess from Blonde Ponytail (and seriously, the pot is at $2300 at the moment I'm writing this), I'm in a race to the finish in order to look svelte for my bestie, Jody's wedding. She is getting married in Tampa next weekend and I have the honor and privilege of being a bridesmaid in her wedding. I'm doing the best I can to make sure the dress fits with a little room to spare.
I've decided to use Tone it Up's 7 Day Slim Down, although I don't currently subscribe to Tone it Up, nor am I able to stick to the "plan" (as I understand it) to a T. It basically makes you:
*drink butt tons of water
*cut out most carbs and don't consume any carbs after 4 p.m.
*Don't eat fruit in the afternoon
*Do a morning workout (I can't)
*Drink some kind of crazy concoction consisting of apple cider vinegar, honey, lemon, etc. (no thanks).
*cut out as much salt as possible
*eat 4-5 CLEAN meals a day
*stick to lean meats and clean vegetables for your dinner
*OK really only eat lean meats, veggies, fruits, and lots of egg whites. Everything else is a no go.
The last time I tried out the this 7 Day Slim Down, I think I did a pretty good job and felt confident for my bestie Baby Snake's wedding last August.
And now, the reason I titled my post, "Sisterhood of the Traveling Necklace". Four of my best friends from high school came up with the idea or passing around a journal and a necklace in order to document our dating highs and lows throughout our 20's. Now that we have gracefully (or not so much) entered our 30's, I decided to upgrade the necklace in order for us to use it in the many events we will undoubtedly be a part of in the next several years (i.e., our own weddings, having children, etc.) and I wanted Jody to be the first to be able to wear our traveling necklace during the rehearsal dinner the night before her big day. I'm so excited to be able to share these moments with them, and am thankful of how we have stayed in touch throughout the years, despite the distance and the difficulties. I'm so excited for you, my dear, dear, friend!
