Deadlines don’t come much bigger than your wedding day. For most women preparing to walk down the aisle, that special day is when you hope to be at your ultimate healthy peak. Whether it’s a more-toned physique, better skin or glossy hair, no one works harder for results than a bride in the lead up to her wedding. In order to certify it we spoke to nutritionist, bride-to-be and founder of TheBridalClinic.com.au and TheHealthClinic.com.au Pip Reed to find out how we can live like a bride-to-be all year round.
First Things First, Set Yourself a Target
Aim for a date in two to three months’ time and write a list of what you want to achieve by then. The trick is to be as specific as possible, and break your program down into weekly and fortnightly goals — think drinking two litres of water a day or eating one cup of veggies with every dinner — this will make sticking to your program easier. Pip admits, whether you’re getting married or not, short term goals throughout the duration of your main goal are best due to they will help you reassess how you’re going and keep you on track for the big day.
Dedication Is Key
Brides aren’t going to let a silly little thing like Christmas, Easter or a birthday get in the way of their goals. Of course, they perhaps have a couple of wines and a slice of cake but when the end goal is fitting into that beautiful wedding dress they think carefully about when and where they give in to temptation.
Seek Answers When Things Aren’t Working
If your four-day-a-week training regime isn’t producing results, or your Paleo diet isn’t changing your weight there’s simply no time to continue for another two to three weeks to see if anything changes. Brides need results and often take action by seeking professional advice to assure they have everything covered.
