We just got our engagement photo pics back today. The photographer was great! She is sweet and understanding since I had to reschedule on her twice. She takes great pictures and has original ideas too.

My fiance looks great in them too. He is smiling nicely even though he was super nervous. He was sweet and agreed to my request NOT to cut his hair until after the photo shoot... just in case a disaster struck at the hair salon. I liked our outfits, the sun was out-- all was well.

EXCEPT my giant hamhock arms!! It is incredible- I see my arms in the mirror every single morning and every single night. I actually thought to myself two days ago- hmmm my arms are slimming up quite nicely. WRONG. Seeing those pics sent me off the deep end.

I am already doing a workout called Chalean Extreme to get some nice muscle tone in time for the wedding in October and I am eating properly now and keeping a food diary but after these pics-- oh it is on! I immediately went out and bought a new series of exercise dvds I had been eyeing but talked myself out of because I thought they would kill me... and they probably will but I just bought them anyway. The dvd set is called: Insanity. Yes- that is the real name.

This is the description off the website: The secret to these mind-blowing results: MAX Interval Training. Shaun T took traditional interval training and flipped it on its head—you perform long bursts of maximum-intensity exercises with short periods of rest. Each workout keeps you constantly challenged as you alternate between aerobic and anaerobic intervals performed at your MAX. The result: burn up to 1,000 calories in an hour and get the most insane body in 60 days.

I have about 75 days until my wedding. I can do this. However, if you never hear from me on this blog again it is probably because my quest for toned arms and glutes did me in.....

My question to you guys: anyone else going crazy in their quest to look fab in their dress and awesome in pictures? I thought I was doing good. I had remained calm until I saw those pictures this morning and then BAM- craziness hit. Anyone else?

that MAX thing sounds intense! I am also self-conscious about my arms and hope to tone them up a bit in time for the wedding. I'm hoping to start a kickboxing class in late fall, which should do wonders for my arms. I did a class like that in college and I remember it helped my arm situation.. right now all I'm doing is running.

I am going to try taking up running again too. I was never a hardcore runner-- the most I ever did was 5 miles but I think it is time to strap those shoes on again!
