Thank you to our Guest Contributor Helen Bradford for writing this amazing article….
Without any doubt, a bride must feel their best on this important day, not only because all eyes will be on her, but because it is the day dedicated to celebrating love and you should show off your adoration and glow.
Besides feeling joyful, the goal is to look stunning and drop-dead gorgeous in the wedding dress.
When you pick up your wedding album in a few year’s time, you want to reminisce how amazing you felt and how fantastic you looked.
Losing a few pounds, going on a diet, and focusing on a steady fitness plan to get that bridal body toned is one way to achieve that mesmerizing look.
Without further ado, here is your very own bridal fitness plan that will surely give you fabulous results.
This actually has two meanings.
Firstly, if you want to get your body perfectly toned before your wedding day, you don’t need to start a year prior to the big day (but it would certainly be productive), but at least 12 weeks beforehand.
Especially if you are aiming to shape up your abs, legs, and arms if you are going to have a strapless gown.
So, in 12 weeks time, you will be able to get the desired results if you set your mind to it and clear out your other duties in order to dedicate your full time to the meticulous fitness plan. Secondly, the meaning “start early” suggests getting up earlier before work and going for a jog around your neighborhood or doing some other jump-start workouts.
Our bodies are the most agile and fresh in the morning, that is why better results will be shown.
Favor the productive workouts…
When you are aiming to tone up your body, you don’t need to sweat your brains out, but do quality and perfectly organized set of workouts that would give you the best results.
It depends also on which part of your a body you want to focus more.
If you wish to align your stomach, then in your workout plan include plank exercise.
Do side plank and one-hand stand plank. In the beginning hold for 30 sec then take 30 seconds to break in a series of 10 reps, and gradually increase.
If you are striving to shape up your entire body, then go running every day, cycling every other, and swimming twice a week.
Plus, if you don’t have time to hit the gym, you can quality fitness exercise equipment for your home, and do the essential workout in your garage.
Boost your organism…
Just as you need to do quality workouts in order to get that handsome and stunning-looking bridal body, you also need to detoxify your entire metabolism.
The food that you intake not only reflect on your body and shape, but also on your skin, hair, nails, and mood.
That is why you have to insert a few more routines to your bridal fitness plan, one of which is hydration.
Drink enough water, that is, at least 8 cups per day.
We are all well aware that when our body is hydrated, the metabolism and our brain works faster and better, and you will have more stamina and energy to do the necessary workout.
Another way to boost up your entire body is to make a refreshing beauty of potion as soon as you wake up.
Squeeze a fresh lemon in a cup of warm water and add a drop of turmeric.
Keep food and workout journal…
As the days to your glorious wedding day will be soon approaching, the time to do some productive fitness will be slowly coming to an end.
Furthermore, you would certainly have a lot of duties and responsibilities already around the wedding overwhelming you, so you should implement a steady fitness and food journal, and stick to it.
Set a reminder to drink water, don’t skip a meal, but rather make on-the-go lettuce and chicken salad when you need to do errands for the wedding.
Track what you eat, avoid salty and sugar products, saturated fats, and additive-filed food, and eat loads of green veggies and fresh fruits.
Treat your workouts like an appointment, and if you can’t do your regular exercise on Monday, then make it up on Tuesday, but don’t skip the plan.
Balance food and fitness…
In the end, taking care of your food intake is of utmost importance.
Don’t hold excessive diets or avoid eating proteins, because you really don’t want to have digestion on your big day.
Always pay attention that your plate is filled with vegetables, proteins, and fruits.
To lose weight and get good fitness condition for your wedding day, don’t lift heavy weights, but do mild press-ups to mildly tone up your shoulders.
Combine smart workouts by focusing on each part of your body with appropriate food intake, and you will look ravishing on your wedding day.
By accompanying “good” carbohydrates and eating less sugary products with a proper fitness plan and daily workout, you will assuredly have an incredible bridal figure.
