With the calendar drawing closer to the big day, you are not alone in wanting to shape up and look your best. Just as you meticulously plan the details of your wedding, you can also plan your exercise and nutrition schedule in the lead up to your wedding day. All the arrangements and planning would make no sense if you, yourself are not happy about your appearance. But it is never too late. There is still a lot you can do. Let’s take a look at the 5 easy tips you can follow to make sure that you get the results you want for the wedding and the honeymoon period ahead with just a little extra effort.
1. Healthy eating
Start incorporating fruits, vegetables, and other healthy food items in your diet. At the eleventh hour, when you are exhausted from your hectic schedule, you want to make sure your fridge is full of these nutritious goodies. Swap white bread for whole-wheat, white pasta for brown and try satisfying your sugar cravings with a drizzle of honey in your tea or over some Greek yoghurt. Another tip is to carry a piece of fruit or a packet of nuts with you while you are on the go to keep your hunger at bay. These small actions will make a big difference!
2. Say no to junk
This includes all foods containing bad fats, sugar, and salt. Make an effort to start reading nutritional labels, which are now easily labelled in red, yellow and green to indicate their healthiness. Run this visual check on the food items before you purchase them. If you can, avoid packaged foods completely and start relying on more home cooked meals.
3. Stay hydrated
Water will not only keep the unhealthy cravings at bay but it will also make sure that you lose weight quickly too. Moreover, it ensures glowing radiant skin for the wedding day. Dehydration is a big driver of over eating, because people confuse thirst for hunger.
4. Work with a personal trainer
If you are finding it difficult to find time to train and don’t enjoy the gym environment, personal training is likely to be the right approach for you. Get the help of a personal trainer who can train you at home or outdoors around your schedule. So that even on the busiest of days you can manage some time out for yourself and indulge in fun training. This alone time will help you both mentally and physically before your wedding day.
5. Mix it up
You may be following a routine but if it is not helping, mix it up. Come up with different and varying exercise routines to help you with different parts of your body. Pick one that might work on legs, one that is for the waist, and so on and so forth. Training should not feel mundane and boring, it should feel energising and challenging.
