#033RR Weddings

Daphnie's getting hitched, and we're rerunning our "Weddings" episode to celebrate!

It’s wedding season! Whether you’re getting married (like Daphnie) or have a lot of friends who are (like Joanna), weddings can bring up a lot of fitness and nutrition questions. How can we escape the tyranny of the Wedding Industrial Complex? How can we look our best at weddings without doing crazy crash diets? And how can we make sure we’re not “that person at the wedding who was so drunk they fell in the koi pond”? As usual, it’s all about balance. Plus, delicious muffins in “What Your Trainer Eats”.

Guilt is a tricky feeling. No one likes it, exactly, but we do it to ourselves all the time.
