As my wedding day approaches, here is what I’ve discovered:
• Training works. I was able to achieve results because Allison, my personal trainer, encouraged me to work beyond what I do on my own.
• Training is only part of the equation. Although working with a trainer yields impressive results, simple dietary improvements enabled me to excel even more. I admit, though, I will eat a bagel and potato chips for breakfast the morning after my wedding.
• An hour training with Allison goes much quicker than exercising for half an hour on my own.
• The improvements I made while training motivated me to continue working with Allison, even after the wedding.
As for the pants that sparked this entire journey, they zip up now!
If only I could learn to walk in high heels by next weekend.
