Set Your Goals
No matter what your overall goal is for your wedding, make sure you keep yourself accountable. Whether you’re looking to shed some pounds, tone up, or just become more active, jot down what your end result should be. Make sure you are hitting goals daily and weekly so you feel progress. Once you have determined what you want your end result to be, figure out what system will work best for you. For example if you are going to get a personal trainer or maintain a regular gym routine on your own. Positive intention and accountability are key!
No matter your end goal – just get motivated! Being active for at least 30 minutes a day is key to a healthy lifestyle and overall wellbeing. Your mood will be elevated and you’ll be constantly improving your stamina. When your wedding day arrives, you’ll be happy you got yourself moving when you’re up early for hair and makeup and still want to boogie down by reception time!
