Back in the pre-wedding days, I wrote about my wedding workout and trying to whip myself into shape for the big day…you can read about it here. I’ll admit to not keeping up with it, I can honestly say that I haven’t been to the gym since May! I need to figure out how to get it in though, because my work hours are so crazy that a little exercise would do my brain good.
Looking back, are you happy with your wedding weight? Were you too skinny? Too big? Or just right? What advice would you give to ladies getting ready to get married about their weight?
When I look back, I’m happy with what I did because I didn’t focus on getting thin (though that did need to happen in order for me to fit into my dress), but strong. I’ve always loved the way muscles look on me and that feeling of being strong. So why haven’t I kept it up, you ask? Because I never do, lol! I put together lifting plans in twelve week increments…do a couple of those, take the summer off, and just walk on the treadmill during my season and that takes care of the year. So really all I’ve skipped is my treadmill walks…but those help me sort through whatever work issues I’m having and I enjoy the time by myself. I need to figure out how to get it in.
If you could talk to ladies who are about to seal the deal about working out and wedding weight, what would you say? Besides the fact that it’s physically impossible for a bride not to be radiant…what advice do you have?
