Getting It Done

My mother is getting married. Again. I am excited for her, but at the same time, it is her 4th marriage (and 7th or so time being engaged). It is sometimes hard to think THIS time it will stick. But that is already besides the point. The point is, she has asked me to be her maid of honor and stand up at her 4th wedding. I can’t very well say no, so instead I swallowed the snide comments I had at the back of my throat and agreed to be her maid of honor. In less than a month.

Of course, the wedding is happening very quickly. I think part of the reason why this one is being so rushed is to make sure the groom doesn’t back out (it has happened). The sooner she gets him legally bound to her, the easier it will be for her to gain some financial stability—something she has always been lacking.

All sarcasm aside now, I have to squeeze myself into a very specific (and very form fitting dress) just in time for groundhog day. Said dress is sleeveless and backless, as my mother is getting married in FLORIDA of all places. Her new fiancee lives in Florida, and I live in bitter cold Colorado. That means I have to get out of hibernation mode and into shape…FAST!

I have a little more than two weeks to get into that dress. I know I don’t have access to a magic wand, and I don’t have the budget (or recovery time) for cosmetic surgery. So I started looking into some of the most effective diets (I refuse to do anything that has to do with enemas or colonics…the YUCK factor is just too much for me) and some killer exercise programs. I know I won’t have a miracle occur in two weeks, but I think I can make SOMETHING happen.

The Insanity workout review is the one that really caught my attention. From everything I have gathered, it is a very effective and hard core workout program. I am pretty sure that if I can do the workout every day for the next two weeks while I monitor what I eat very carefully, I may be able to squeeze into said dress for said wedding. I am pretty sure it will work.
