Wedding Dress Bootcamp

Wedding Dress Bootcamp

Earlier I made a blog post promising some fitness tips for your wedding day! The reality is sometimes a wedding isn’t enough of a push to get in shape, tone, or drop a couple extra lbs. But it can be a great place to start! GET OFF THE COUCH AND GET MOVING! Life is tough, it throws you curveballs, and there will be an abundance of days you just don’t want to adult- but you have to do it!! There are days when all I want to do is go home and hide away from the world but we are adults and we have responsibilities! So here are some ways to keep you motivated. Remember nothing happens over night it takes 3 weeks for something to become a habit and the first two weeks are the hardest! You WILL have more energy going to the gym, you will sleep better and feel fantastic. You will start to enjoy pushing yourself and feeling the gym burn – it becomes addictive. When you feel like giving up, Pinterest motivational fitness, fitness models, anything that keeps you going! Onto the tips!

Motivational Tips

1. Workout with someone – if you set a time and a place with someone you are far less likely to skip out on your workout. Plus most of the time working out is more fun with someone!

2. Playlists – update your playlist! Whatever jacks you up, keeps you focussed, and pushes you, put it on your playlist!!

3. Scale – buy a scale! If you you want to track your results weigh yourself at the same time of every day!

4. Reminders – set a daily reminder in your phone! (ex: run BLEEP) this way you have something constantly reminding you to get active!

5. Set a goal – How are you supposed to feel accomplished without setting a goal to work for and achieve. Keep the goal reasonable and once you attain one goal reward yourself & set a new one!

Workout Tips

1. Walk/jog, run – spring is here and summer is quickly approaching there is NO excuse not to be outside, GET MOVING! Start with a learn to job/run program. Jog for 30 seconds, walk for 5 and repeat for 5 rounds. Then jog for 1 minute walk for 4 minutes repeat 5 times.

2. Time – it takes 20 minutes before you start to burn fat. Why? Because you have to burn through your ATP storage, so keep going!

3. Weights – Don’t think that lifting weights will make you bulky… those women are on supplements to get/maintain those muscles. Therefore, lifting weights won’t make you bulky.

If you don’t want to do weights start with body weight exercises! Example workout.

12 staggered push ups (4 regular, 4 right hand higher than left, 4 left hand higher than right) – can be knee push ups

12/side lateral lunges 

15 air squats

12/side walking lunges

6/side reverse walking lunges

24 mountain climbers

10 burpees

Repeat x3

 

You don’t have to be in the gym forever or even go to a gym, you just have to set time aside each day to take care of yourself. It is all about priorities in life. What are yours? My top three priorities are my family, my health (food & exercise) and my happiness. These are just mine, but really think about your goals and what you want to be important. If you don’t have your health, life becomes more challenging. Also a complete 3 stage workout plan to come! Stay tuned for some healthy eating recipes to keep you happy, healthy, and energized for your big day!

 

Cheers,
