Getting Fit(ter) for the Wedding

Weddings usually have a lot of fitness circulating them. Well, more so, that the pair preparing to get married want to look good and so they get super healthy beforehand. In fact, a lot of bloggers start out this way: blogging their fitness and healthy eating up to the special date. Hungry and I are pretty good about working out regularly, it’s something we enjoy and so we do it often. However, when it comes to food, we have our ups and downs. We can be off or on. Usually, we’re fairly healthy (not like we pig out at McD’s or anything ever). However, we pretty much eat what we want. I’ve decided to embark on a 2-month program to help touch up my health a bit.
