The Wedding Affair Perfect Planning Guide… ‘The Wedding Diet’
Rightly, or wrongly It’s now considered one of the main aspects of planning for a wedding. “The Wedding Diet” is officially a thing. And,e would love to know your opinions in #WeddingHour tonight between 9-10pm
We can really see both sides of the whole health and fitness regime that Brides, and Grooms alike go through – whether it be to feel more confident in wedding attire, or to even just get some motivation to be healthier. There are plenty of reasons why couples are opting to make changes to their lifestyle’s. We also do see on a daily basis some truly inspirational stories, and it can really change peoples lives for the better.
On the other hand however, there is the argument that couples shouldn’t feel like they have to change their weight and lifestyle for the sake of one day (and rightly so, we couldn’t agree more).
We live in a world where their is so, SO much pressure to look a certain way and body ideals are based upon photo-shopped images and unhealthy regimes. Unfortunately, this can be said even more for the way you look on your wedding day.
So, whether you do choose to take up a new regime in order to achieve weight loss or be healthier, do remember that your partner is marrying you because they already LOVE the way you are, and you shouldn’t feel like you should have to change the way you are for the sake of outside social pressures!
Of course, if you feel like you just want to gain confidence and feel the best you can possibly do, then opting for a healthier lifestyle may be something you are thinking about and you are totally for.
This morning, we have some advice from Amy – The Bridal Body Coach all about how exercise can benefit you on your wedding day and in the run-up to it, too. So, for those seeking a kick start or looking as to how to get in that routine take a little read.
I’ll pass it over to Amy…
“Regular Exercise increases your blood flow. When you sweat during a workout, your skin expels all the impurities stuck in your pores, resulting in your skin looking more radiant as well as eliminating pimples and acne.
During exercise, our bodies releases the stress hormone – cortisol. This results in improved sleep and less dark circles around the eyes. Cortisol will leave you feeling and looking fresh! Furthermore, less stress will ensure you have fewer arguments with your other half, a healthy way to start a marriage.
During exercise, the structure of your skin will also be affected. Regular exercise boosts the production of collagen, particularly when strength training. Your muscles strengthen and tone which in turn makes your skin firmer and encourages more elasticity, making your skin feel and look healthier than ever!”
“Some women want to reduce their breast size whilst other may want to firm them. With all the products available on the market, it is misleading and often difficult to know what you should and should not be doing. Exercise focusing on the pectoral muscle can really help tone your breasts making you feel more confident in everyday life and most importantly on your big day!
Unfortunately, no cream or pill is going to make your breasts fuller nor firmer.
Personally, I used to hate my breasts, having gone through the usual phases of gaining and losing weight in an unhealthy way, I felt as though they were just sagging. However, upon reaching an unhealthy weight and body fat percentage of 34% along with a chest size 34E I decided enough was enough and the weight had to go. Instead of reducing my calories by a hefty unhealthy amount and not exercising, it was when I started doing things right that it all changed! Now at 30C I am very comfortable and happy! Not only does it suit my figure but also because I did not cut calories by an excessive amount or eliminate carbs from my diet they have stayed perky firm, which in turn has boosted my confidence!
We all want to look our best for our big day. You have two choices available to you. You can opt for a quick fix, which is the unhealthy and unsustainable route. Alternatively, you can make getting body ready for your very own big day a change of lifestyle, from which you will reap benefits for the rest of your life.“
