Be Your Best On Your Best Day

How to look and feel your best on your wedding day!


Tips for Wedding Day Fitness Success

Here’s the Straight Talk:  You will look amazing on your wedding day, no matter what. But how you go about getting there can make a big difference in the stress of planning your big day.

Now I know you immediately started thinking of diets, getting back to the gym, and detoxes the minute you got engaged. But it’s more important to stay healthy (and sane) if you want to achieve a few fitness goals before your wedding day—and BetaBfit can help set a smart workout and wellness plan by following these tips.

  1. Get Serious

The earlier you decide on your workout plan and put it into effect the better. Then you can actually focus on all the good you’re doing for your body instead of trying to reach a goal that may not be attainable, and getting stressed out.  This would be a good time to invest in an experienced personal trainer. Its important to work smart, and having an expert guide you to your fitness goals will help you enjoy the journey of planning your wedding!

  1. Be Realistic

Look at the big picture when setting fitness goals.  If you aim too high, you’ll only be setting yourself up for failure and frustration. Not every bride must be a size two or every groom have a six pack on your wedding day. You need to realistically evaluate what your ideal weight and body shape should be, and whether you’re capable of getting there in a healthy way. Once you have an attainable goal in mind, be prepared to do the amount of work necessary in the time it’ll take to reach it.

  1. Know What It Takes

It will take a minimum of three to four 30-minute sessions of cardio per week, and the same amount of strength training, though that amount will need to be adjusted depending on your goals. If you have more than 15 pounds to lose you’ll need to kick your cardio up to five or six times per week. Relax—cardio can be anything from going for a run to jogging, brisk walks and cycling, which is much easier on joints and makes you less prone to injuries. Find something you enjoy so you’ll be more likely to keep it up. And remember: If you continue to do what you’ve always done, you’ll continue to get the results you’ve always gotten. Rice says, if you want to make more progress, be prepared to push yourself a bit harder.

  1. Adjust Your Eating Habits

The best way to get the most out of any exercise routine is to pair it with healthy eating habits. You cannot out-exercise a poor diet. What is the simplest way to get started? Eat more vegetables. You’ll also want to focus on superfoods, like broccoli, eggs and walnuts, which fill you up quicker, keep you feeling full longer and help you lose weight faster.

  1. Lose Fat, Not Muscle

The big takeaway here is you can not turn fat into muscle. You need to have a plan that will allow you to burn more calories than you consume, and build more muscle than you had before. This will both raise your metabolism and use the calories you already have stored on you, making you leaner.

  1. Log Workouts and Nutrition Plans

Nothing makes you feel more motivated to keep going than actually hitting your goals. Keep goals small and specific.

Write your goals down in a journal and make a note as you reach each one so you have a record of your successes. Record your results, whether they’re good or bad!—then you’ll find it’s not so tough to continue to build on your achievements.

NOTE: We think we eat at least 20% less than we do, and we think we exercise at least 20% more that we do.

Writing down your meals and workout will keep you from sticking your head in the sand on the days you have little self-discipline.

  1. Strong is the New Sexy

One big misconception of most woman is that they don’t want to work out with weights because they will get muscle bulk.   This isn’t true for 98% of women.  Lift weights for a toned lean body. Not just so that you can see how much you can lift, leave that to the groom. 😊

  1. Be Positive

Everyone has bad days so don’t beat yourself up over yours. If you really think about it, will you ever have better fitness motivation than for your wedding day? Probably not, so invest in a plan and a fitness trainer for best results that will last you a life time. Then you can enjoy the journey.

  1. Accountability

We all will perform better and stay on track, if we have support and accountability. Get your wedding party to join a group class or group training.  With BetaBfit Group Training you can get all of the benefits of one-on-one training at ½ the price when you join group training.

OVERVIEW

From the very beginning both of you will need to find experts to help you with your wedding. From the photographer to the caterer you will need someone who you can put your faith in.  Your fitness is no different, and in fact it’s even more important because your fitness journey doesn’t end when you say I do.

7 Ways to Keep Your Motivation to Exercise

Everyone has started out on an exercise program full of excitement and determination, only to find the excitement start to fade after a few days. What started as something you were sure was going to change your life, has began to make your life a nightmare, trying to keep the enthusiasm at a high enough level to continue exercising. In order to stick to an exercise program, and make it work for you, you need to find a way to keep that original motivation. Here are some tips to help get you motivated, and encourage you to stay that way.

Find A Role Model – Who has that “perfect” body that you would love to have? Who sticks to a fitness plan, and shows that dedication in the way they live their lives? Many women tape up pictures of someone they aspire to be like, such as a model or actress. This is a great way to keep your goals fresh in your mind, and to remind you what you’re striving towards. Make sure that you choose someone deserving of your admiration – not someone who has unhealthy eating or exercise habits, or who has an impossible to achieve image.

Set Small Goals – If you have set the bar too high by setting goals that are too tough to reach, you’re setting yourself up to be disappointed. If you don’t achieve the goals you have set, you will become discouraged. Just set smaller, easy to achieve goals and work your way towards the bigger goals. Start with something simple like, “I will work out three times this week.” Once you have established a routine, start working out harder, and try doing more each session.

Reward Yourself – Setting goals is a great way to get yourself going in an exercise program, but if you have a hard time keeping yourself going, don’t be afraid to offer yourself rewards for any small achievements. You don’t need to go overboard – just small rewards for reaching small goals. Take yourself out to a movie you’ve been wanting to see if you achieve your goal of working out three times in the week. Just remember that if you’re working out to lose weight, don’t reward yourself with food!

Get A Buddy – Having someone to work out with makes it much more fun, and will keep you more motivated to exercise. You might even find that you’re actually looking forward to it! Not only that, but having a buddy makes it much harder for you to skip your workout, because they will be there to hold you accountable. Let them encourage you and motivate you when you don’t feel like exercising, and do the same for them. If you can’t find a buddy to work out with, hire a personal trainer to give you that extra push.

Make It Fun – Exercise doesn’t have to be boring or repetitive. If you don’t like your exercise routine, change it and make it more exciting. Keep trying new exercises until you find something you enjoy doing. If your exercise routine is fun, you will end up looking forward to exercise, instead of dreading it. Get the advice or invest in the services of a fitness professional if necessary. 

Mix It Up – Anything you do over and over every day is going to get boring, no matter how motivated you are to succeed. Find several different exercises you enjoy, and alternate. Try swimming on Monday, dance class on Wednesday and a Pilates tape at home on Saturday. Whenever you find yourself getting bored with a workout, replace it with something else you enjoy, and go back to it again when you’re ready.

Don’t Take It Too Seriously – If you start treating exercise like hard work, that’s exactly what it will become. Make your exercises light, fun and exciting rather than looking at it as a chore you have to do. Don’t let yourself get a bad attitude towards exercising, or you will be more likely to give up.
