Diet Bet And Such

Well it has been awhile, and I know I have yet to blog about our amazing trip out west. We went to Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah. I'm going to start writing it this week and hopefully will get part one up next weekend.

The past few weeks I have been focusing on losing weight and cleaning up my diet. It was tough this week because it was Halloween and our anniversary, but I ended up losing 3.3 pounds. As you may know, I'm working with my friend Aurora, who is my amazing trainer. She started helping me train for the hiking we would be doing on our trip out west. She is now helping me get in shape and lose weight for our trip to Vegas in December. I love the program she has set up for me. I love that even after a long day at work I can come home and get an intense workout in a short amount of time. My program includes cardio, strengthening workouts, and TRX circuits. I'm definitely loving the TRX circuits because I can feel myself getting stronger and it gets my heart rate up. 

I have also discovered Diet Bet. I have recently followed a bunch of people on Instagram who are trying to lose weight and I stumbled across Lexi.  Lexi has lost 392 pounds since January 1, 2016 with diet and exercise. She starting posting about Diet Bet and I was intrigued. Her game started on October 14th-November 10th. Basically you put in a bet (this game was $30 or $25 with a coupon code) and you commit to lose 4% of your body weight. If you lose the 4% then you split the pot with everyone in the game who loses 4% of their body weight. Right now, Lexi's game FatGirlFedUp's Fall Fight for Fit HallowLEAN has 4,500 players and the pot is at $135,000. For me to win my share, I have to lose 8.1 pounds. I have 3.7 pounds left to lose by November 10th. I really like the support you get from the group. It is set up like a Facebook page where you can post you how you are doing, if you are struggling, pictures etc. I'm looking forward to playing another game during the holidays.

This week I went to Regenesis MD to get some more pixeling done on the scars on my legs and my second treatment of laser hair removal under my arms. I'm extremely happy with the results already. My scarring on my legs has dramatically faded and the texture has smoothed out nicely. After the scarring work is finished I'll be starting laser hair removal on my legs. I'm loving the laser hair removal and have already noticed a difference. I have my last treatment next month. I wish I had done this sooner! Make sure you RSVP to Regenesis MD End Of The Year Party on November 16th from 6-9pm. Bring your friends and coworkers and join them for food, drinks and free prizes. There will be special low pricing on products and services. You don't want to miss this event! 

Matt and I finally went to a NC State basketball game. Matt won an award so we got to watch the game in a box. It was weird to see it set up for a basketball game since we have only seen it set up for hockey. The game was good and NC State won so it was a fun night! 

Finally, this past Halloween was our fourteenth wedding anniversary and I thought I'd share a couple wedding pictures. It was an amazing day and I married an amazing guy.
