A wedding is always a good Motivator for getting in shape, so whether it’s your own or you’re acting as bridesmaid for a friend, then you can absolutely use that excuse and time to get in shape for the wedding coming up and look the best you can in your dress.
Depending on how far away the wedding is, you may have some time to work with, but if not there’s, also other ways that you can get in shape quickly, and that won’t take months or years to achieve.
The key thing here is really to plan ahead, so that you know how much time you have, and what you have to do within that time frame in order to get into the shape that you want to get into.
Start with making a plan for how long you actually have, and then work backwards from there, and create a calendar for this, so that you know each and every day what you have to do in terms of your diet and your fitness to actually keep yourself in shape and achieve the level of fitness and look that you want for the big day.
There are also other things that you should take into consideration, such as your diet, your alcohol intake your, exercise and fitness levels, and other things that may contribute to your overall levels of health and fitness.
If you currently don’t do any exercise, then now would be the absolute perfect time to start. You don’t have to go crazy, but find something that you enjoy, and then stick with it. The best way to really get started with this is either to look online or visit your local gym and see what they have on offer.
So, for example, if they offer different classes then you could join the Zumba dance workout class for fitness or you could even look at what they have in terms of water aerobics or yoga.
If none of these are an option for you, or not something that you would enjoy, then you can also go for a daily run. Even a short walk daily can actually make a big difference to your overall fitness – it doesn’t have to be for long, and it doesn’t have to be intense, just as long as you’re keeping active and doing something you enjoy.
The next step is obviously to maintain a good and healthy diet. Again, you don’t have to go crazy with this or go on a very strict diet, but making some simple changes, such as cutting back on sugar, consuming less alcohol, and eating more home cooked foods with fresh fruit and vegetables, will also make a significant difference to your overall health and fitness, and although it’s something you should be doing all the time, it’s never too late to start taking care of yourself and developing good habits when it comes to your health and fitness.
The final thing is to make sure you drink plenty of water and cut back on the coffee. As much as I love my coffee, it’s so important to drink lots of water. Not only does it give you energy and keep you hydrated and focused throughout the day, but it’s the best thing you could have to keep your skin looking shiny and healthy, too.
