June 26, 2018

Planning for your wedding can be a stressful time but it is also packed with excitement as you count down the days. Every bride wants all aspects of her wedding day to be perfect but none more so than how you look in your gorgeous wedding gown and getting into shape is the best way to look your best.

A 6-month wedding workout plan gives you enough time to reach a realistic goal without compromising your health through crash diets and starvation. Every bride is different, some want to shed extra pounds and others just want to tone so it is best to plan accordingly. After all, you want to have reached your goal when you walk down the aisle looking stunning in your wedding dress.

A good exercise regime and nutritious diet is key to your 6-month wedding workout plan.  

The extent of your exercise regime depends on your body and your goal. Remember that your groom loves you as you are so there’s no need for drastic weight loss unless it is in your best health interests. The ultimate goal for this should be to be healthy, confident and comfortable in your wedding gown.

6-months before the big day, prepare yourself with comfortable clothing; running shoes, a mat and 2 or 3-pound weights or resistance bands. According to experts https://www.theknot.com/content/six-month-fitness-makeover, the first month should be spent focusing on engaging in your new workout plan and becoming active. By the second month you will find more of a routine.

Embarking on a healthy eating plan is very important. Not only for shedding the pounds and fitting into your wedding dress but for ensuring a healthy glowing skin too. It is best to cut out all processed food, fatty foods, added sugars and sodium. Drink plenty of water and eat fresh fruit, vegetables and protein.
