what's currently on our fridge?

Today while I was working on a hard drive that just so happens to also have all our wedding, pre-wedding event photos, honeymoon memories..all of those backed up on, I did something that either was the best/worst decision of my week. Worst: I am now saying no to all carbs and all things good. Best: I've never been more motivated to hit the gym in my life.

Now, if you are married and depending on how long you have been married, you have honeymoon photos. You know…that time just after working your butt off to get an inch taken in on your wedding dress and the dieting to make sure it fits the day of? No, I really wasn't that crazy. I have no idea what a diet is. But I do remember spending a lot of time running (I was anti-gym back then, remember?) While browsing, I came across a few of these.

We had Abs!? Who were we? Our tums definitely don't look like that now (thank you newlywed weight). As much as it kicked my butt to look at these again, I would highly recommend reminiscing on your own honeymoon photos to get motivated! Just 100 days until our Western Carribean family cruise.  I printed off a couple for Paul and I as a joke and taped them to our fridge. Maybe now I will reach for a yogurt instead of an ice cream bar when I visit the fridge for a snack.


  1. This is a great idea! A little motivation can really work wonders!!

  2. ahh, i remember when i had time to run almost every day! now i just work too much...thanks for the motivation, need to lace up my tennis shoes sooner than later :)

  3. Abbbbbs!!! Wow. So you're saying I have to give up my ice cream to have a stomach like that??

  4. Oh no way! I loved me some ice cream back then ;-) following your blog!

  5. I've been thinking about taking up running...but honestly, it makes me feel like a loser since I can only run around the block and I'm done for ;D

    1. I'm right there with you Kasey! Baby steps is what I keep telling myself
