Stay fit through wedding season and beyond

If you are a bride-to-be or even hope if you hope to get engaged, it is time to start getting in shape for wedding season. Fitness expert Amanda Russell told Us News & World Report, “The big moment of the whole day is … they open those doors.” Stay fit with tips from The Stir.

Hiring a personal trainer might now always be your best option, but it will definitely help you stay motivated as you are preparing for your big day. If you don’t have the money to invest in a professional personal trainer, just having a workout buddy training by your side will help motivate you and hold you accountable to your fitness goals.

Maintaining a healthy diet will also help you stay fit in time for wedding season. Start small and gradually replace less healthy foods such as processed carbs and sugars with healthier foods like lean protein and complex carbs. You can gradually cut back on sugar, and identify what your dietary vices are so you can work on eliminating them. Remember to eat small meals throughout the day, drink plenty of water, and avoid eating late at night.

When it comes to exercise, schedule your workouts ahead of time and stick to them. If you don’t have a personal trainer to schedule appointments with, trying booking a spinning or yoga class. What ever date and time you commit to, make sure you hold yourself accountable to your fitness goals as your wedding day approaches.

Preparing for weddings can be stressful, and managing stress is key to staying fit and healthy. Stress relieving activities such as sleeping in, deep breathing, meditation, massage, going for walks, venting to friends on the phone can keep you relaxed as you get ready for your big day.

As you adapt to your fitness schedule, you can start new milestones and find new sources of motivation. After the wedding, continue your healthy diet and fitness routine as you start thinking about more long term goals. Spend time with other people who are also sticking to a healthy schedule, so you can keep each other motivated through each wedding anniversary.
