That is right, I have a bridesmaid dress I am supposed to wear in one month that I can not zip. I am not exaggerating, I put the dress on and regardless of how I suck it in, raise my arms, close my eyes and wish really hard that sucker just will not zip! Even the briefest glance at my recipe collection would probably offer a pretty good indication of where my problem lies, I love food, especially sweets, and if it is not sweet the carbier the better. I know the simple solution is to have the dress taken out, but the fact is I am not happy with this extra weight I am caring around, all winter I have felt sluggish and have hidden under big cozy sweaters. The dress not zipping was the kick in my now bigger butt I needed to pull myself together. I am not usually into dieting, but think to get this dress to zip I am going to have to pull out the big guns, yup both dieting and exercising. I went over to Livestrong to figure out how many calories I should be consuming to lose 1.5 lbs. a week. I also dusted off my treadmill and made a playlist to keep me motivated. Pitbull was recommended by a friend, the songs I picked all have about 127-129 beats per minute (BPM) which works out to be a 12 minute mile. I am
kind of out of shape so I am not sure how I feel abut a 12 minute mile, I will let you know later. But I am pretty excited at the possibility of doing two miles in 24 minutes.
I am going to add this widget to my blog, I am hoping it will motivate me, and will keep you posted in the state of my unzipperedness.
Rebecca, if you are reading this I promise my dress will be fully zipped at your wedding!
