A lot of you brides out there are trying to look your best for the big day. It’s one of the most important days of your life and of course, you want to look your best. When getting in shape for your Hawaii wedding it’s important to remember first and foremost that your fiancée loves you just the way you are now. There is no need to stress yourself out trying to be something unrealistic. These are some healthy and effective ways to look and feel your best on your big day.
1. Make a Plan:
The first approach to any change in your lifestyle is to make a plan. Just like you did for your wedding map out a calendar and the goals you want to reach at a certain time. Again don’t make these super unrealistic as that does nothing put set you up for failure. Checklists and plans also feel great when you can check off the things you have accomplished. With a plan all laid out it will be easier to stay on track.
2. Find a Buddy:
Lets be serious working out isn’t always fun but if you have a friend its much easier to stay on track and stay motivated. Ask your bridesmaids if any of them want to start a little lookin’ good feelin’ better routine. With the support of friends you will be sure to meet your goal.
This is something that lots of people forget to do. Water is so important when it comes to helping you look good and feel better. You always hear to drink 8 cups a day and the closer you get to that the more your body will benefit. If you cant always sit and chug water make a pitcher of water, lemon slices and mint and stick it in the fridge. Then whenever you need to drink something you can go for something yummy and good for you. You can also add green tea bags for an extra kick and health boost. Buy cute water bottles so that it is more fun to drink or as a gift to bridesmaids customize some clear plastic bottles to say their name or bridesmaid and yours can say bride.
4. Change Your Eating Habits:
Eating Healthy is an obvious way to create a better lifestyle. Don’t go overboard with this and try to change everything about your diet. Moderation is key when changing your diet. Start by cutting out soda or fast food. Try your best to make home cooked meals that incorporate vegetables, lean protein and good carbs. There are a ton of healthy food blogs that can help give you ideas on how to make healthy food yummy. Tasting good is another key part of changing your diet because if it doesn’t taste good you won’t eat it. Check out blogs like Cheap, Healthy, Good or Skinnytaste that focus on healthy food that tastes good. Thai chicken and pineapple stir fry, crock pot kalua pig? Yes please.
5. Change It Up:
Getting bored is one of the most common ways people get off track on a diet and exercise plan. If you are bored with running on a treadmill or doing the same lift weighting routine switch it up. Go bouncing in a Bouncy House! Go to a zumba or a kickboxing class with your friends, try hiking instead of running or walking or try yoga. For the very brave get your butt kicked at a TRX class. You could stumble on something that you end up loving and if not at least it was something different.
Happy Monday Everyone! Now get off your butt and do something FUN! 🙂
