It’s so common that as women we become overwhelmed with all of our daily tasks that we tend to forgot some of the important things that need to be done. For instance, for all our Brides-to-be, if you are the midst of planning your wedding, odds are that as you’re stressing over centerpieces, looking for a photographer, dealing with your bridesmaids and everything in between. The last thing on your mind is considering what you’ll look like to your nearest and dearest as they stare at your backside on your way down the aisle. Can you feel me on this one?
According to a Brides.com 2006 American Wedding Study, out of 2.3 million American Weddings, only 80% of the brides and over half of the wedding party & family members will take steps to change their eating or exercise habits for the big day. And hopefully if you are reading this you will be one of them! If not, let’s work on getting that percentage up…not only for your wedding day, but for your future and that of your children and future generations.
I’m not saying that if you are not a fitness model for your wedding day, that you won’t be a beautiful bride. I think ALL women are beautiful no matter their weight, or shape! Everyone is entitled to make the decision about whether or not to work out and/or eat right on their own. No one wants to witness a Carb-free wife-to-be lose her mind over place settings at the rehearsal dinner, because from experience I know that this can be an ugly sight!! One of the main reasons I believe eating right and working out are important is because this is an ultimate CONFIDENCE BOOSTER…oh and it would feel so cool to have people stare at a HOT back side walking down that aisle! ;o)
Your engagement time should be an amazing time in your relationship transition. Both your mind and your body are going to be running on overdrive from the moment you said Yes to the ring until you’ve said good-bye to your last guest after your reception. So get your heart rate up, work those muscles to the max, and eat healthy to kick your brain into the “I’m a HOT Bride!” mode. Just remember that making time for regular workouts can keep you focused and feeling great about yourself. So what’s better way to start your new life?
I am sure you have a ton of other things that you are worried about in the process of wedding planning, so you are probably wondering why/how or when you will be able to focus on staying fit!
