Getting Fit for Your Big Day

Everyone wants to look fabulous on their big day, but no one planning a wedding has hours to spend at the gym. Today's blog from Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches offers some exercise and health tips to help get you in better shape for your special day.

1. Stay Hydrated. 

One of the most important aspects of getting fit and being healthy is ensuring that your body gets the amount of water it requires. Staying hydrated is one of the best things you can do to take care of yourself. Plus, when you are hydrated, your metabolism is faster and your brain works faster. Not to mention the benefits hydration has on your hair, skin and nails. Hydration is they key to glowing skin, bright eyes and a toned body for your big day.

2. Get Moving in the Morning. 

There's no busier time than the months prior to your wedding. If you don't make time to take care of yourself first, planning, meetings, tastings, etc. are going to distract you. Getting a workout, even if it's just 15 minutes, first thing in the morning is a great way to kick start your day and ensure you're getting some exercise in.

3. Focus on a Healthy Diet. 

Being fit isn't just about exercising regularly, it's also about your diet and what you're putting into your body. Not only will healthy foods help you get fit, but they will also help with your energy and mood, which can both highly fluctuate during the stressful wedding planning process. Cut back on sugar and focus on lean proteins and leafy greens. Planning out your meals ahead of time will help you stay on track.

4. Grab a Partner. 

Getting fit is much easier when you have an accountability buddy. Ask your fiance or your bridesmaids to hop on the fitness wagon with you! Having a support system is one of the best ways to ensure you reach your goals. You can also use your workout time to catch-up on non-wedding related things.

5. Get Plenty of Sleep. 

While your mind and calendar will be running 100 mph up to the day of your wedding, it's important that you get plenty of rest. Exhaustion is not good for your health, and it can hinder your weight-loss efforts if that's something you're trying to accomplish. Too little sleep can increase your cravings and lead to poor food choices. Aiming for 7-8 hours of sleep per night is ideal.

6. Find the Perfect Workout Plan. 

Everyone gets their workout accomplished in different ways. Whether you're able to go to the gym and work with a trainer or you just have time to do something quick at home, be sure you're doing a workout that works for you. If you try to force something you don't want to do too hard, you're likely to fail. Look on YouTube for some short workout videos that you can follow along at home. The resources of easy wedding workouts online are endless!
