Bridal Shower!

I'm preparing myself to get on track.
You see, I keep having events that lead me astray!

I had the week from hell at work.
then before I had a chance to de-stress,

It was my bridal shower...

My bridesmaids & Maids of Honor with me on the day
I ate well for the most part, except a few Bellinis and a small piece of cake. It was great to spend time with family and friends, and think about all the uses for my new household goods!

I also snuck in my first dress fitting for my wedding gown, which I am even more in love with than before!

I had some excellent runs last week, but fell victim to some stress eating after work, which hit a high note on friday night. After a nice dinner out with Kevin at the Northampton Brewery, which consisted of nachos, wings, pizza and beer, we hit La Fiorentina for dessert. 
I wish I had taken a picture.
Since there was a $10 charge card minimum, we got a little cake, slice of snickers cheesecake and a chocolate covered cannoli. When we got home, we then managed to devour it between the two of us, until I felt as though I may be sick.

Ever since then, I've had the worst belly bloat. I think I gained 5 pounds from all of that dessert. I've been aiming to focus on some clean eating, and exercise. So far, today went well! It really goes to show how awful all that junk is for you, it made me feel like crap!

Tomorrow I have 5am bootcamp, I'm getting ready for the big Bia Fitness challenge that starts July 1st!
 cannot wait!

What desserts or food make you have food regret?
How many days until I get rid of the bloat?

You look beautiful Stephanie. I love your dress. I totally understand how you feel though. I just began a two week cleanse after getting off track for a couple of weeks. Sugar seems to be my nemesis, and it's everywhere. I felt horrible after a few indulgences along with not tracking my food. I'm on day 3 and I'm feeling so much better. I'm hope you feel better soon too.

I agree with the look great! Glad you had fun at your shower! I know those desserts made you feel bad, but they sounded incredibly yummy! :0)

Urgh. I need to lose weight to fit into the bridesmaid dress for my sister's wedding. I'm unfortunately too fat for the largest size so I have no choice but to lose weight.

...but my sister was in town this weekend and I had a cupcake and way too much tasty food.

Must get it together.

You look amazing, girl - you're glowing!
