Healthy Life, Happy Wife! How to Make Your Bridal Makeover Last

So, you’ve decided to lose weight for your wedding and get in the best shape of your life! AWESOME! But I want you to take it one step further! How can the healthy habits that you’re developing in your bridal makeover become your life as a wife? Your looming wedding day gives you a heap of motivation but the decision that you’ve made to get fit could SO EASILY transfer over into you being a fit wife for life! The real test lies in what you do after your wedding day so I’m going to share with you some simple ways you can make sure your hard work really lasts!

  1. Begin as You Wish to Continue

When you’re making a healthy lifestyle change, make sure you can sustain it! Don’t eat boiled chicken breast and broccoli every night if you hate it. Find ways to make healthy food tasty! Find fun ways to move your body so you’ll looking forward to your workout, going hiking or playing basketball. If you enjoy it, you won’t have to ‘stick to it’, so make sure you can see yourself doing it in 6 months or 6 years from now when you’re a fit wife for life.

  1. Form Habits, Not To-do Lists

fit wife for lifeTo-do lists are always prioritised and if your workout is on that list, it’s probably gonna go when life gets busy. Try to make healthy living a habit so that you automatically choose the option that’s good for you! Wake up, workout, eat breakfast and then start your day, every day or get used to cooking up leftovers to freeze so when you’re home late from work you’ve got an alternative to take-away.

  1. Celebrate Your Achievements

Recognising how far you’ve come will make you appreciate your hard work. Once you’ve finally got your wedding dress body, VALUE IT! If you’ve learnt to do a push-up, squat your bodyweight or run 10kms, enjoy the feeling of being fit and strong! It’ll make it that much harder to just let it go.

  1. Weigh up the Pros and Cons

After your wedding day what are the benefits and costs of sustaining your healthy lifestyle? You’ve already done the hard work so now’s the time to fully consider your lifestyle choices. Here’s a few questions to get you started:

  • Pros:
    • For true weight loss, form healthy habitsWhat are the benefits of sticking with healthy eating and exercise?

    • What will you miss about your old lifestyle?

    • How will you feel if you go back to where you were?
    • What’s stopping you from committing to be healthy for life?

 “Before embarking upon (or continuing) a health habit, ask yourself the question, ‘can I see myself doing this in 6 weeks, 6 months or 6 years’ time?’. If the honest answer is no, them don’t start in the first place as you’re setting yourself up for inevitable failure down the track” – Dr George Blair-West.

You’re Sweet Enough! How to Avoid Added Sugar in Your Wedding Diet

Take a wild guess how much sugar you eat a day? Do you think 10 teaspoons sounds like a lot? The average person eats 30 teaspoons of added sugar every day! And I’m not talking about the sugar that naturally occurs in foods, this is just the sugar that’s ADDED to processed foods and drinks. Reducing the amount of added sugar that’s in your wedding dress diet will not only help you to lose weight to reveal that fit, wedding dress body, it’ll also help you to feel healthier and reduce cravings. In this article I’m going to explain what sugar does to your body and share four tips on how you can break the sugar habit today!

Sugar, Sugar…It’s Everywhere!

added sugarThere are 65 different names for sugar and it’s important to understand the difference between natural and added sugars. Naturally occurring sugars like those found in fruit (fructose) and milk (lactose) aren’t ones you need to worry about in your wedding diet. It’s the added sugar such as regular table sugar and high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) that we want to reduce.

The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that an adult with a normal body mass index (BMI) shouldn’t eat more than 12 teaspoons of added sugar a day. For even more health benefits, they recommend reducing this to only 6 teaspoons per day and if you’re on a mission to be a fit, healthy and sexy bride, this is what we’re aiming for!

Added sugar is often hidden in healthy foods such as cereals, pasta sauces and fruit yoghurts so check the nutritional content panel and try to stick to things with less than 10% sugar i.e. no more than 10 grams per 100 grams.

Sugar and Your Body

Have you heard sugar being called ‘the new tobacco’? It’s actually considered an addictive drug because it lights up the pleasure centres in your brain, making you feel happier. It also overrides the natural hunger signals from your body so you feel hungry, almost straight away, despite how much you’ve already eaten.

Sugar is the new tobacco4 Tips to be a Naturally Sweet Bride!

  1. Don’t buy it and don’t keep it in the house

    – Don’t even walk down the confectionary aisle at the supermarket! If it’s not there you won’t want it and even if a craving does hit, you won’t be relying on willpower to stop yourself from heading to the fridge.

  2. Eat more superfoods

    – Cravings are often caused by nutrient deficiencies so make sure your wedding diet includes lots of superfoods to fuel you well. Check out my blog post for some ideas.

  3. Supplement with chromium and glutamine

    – Glutamine shuts down the craving response and chromium stabilises your blood sugar levels so that your body can realise more easily when you’re actually hungry.

  4. Stress less and sleep more

    – Irrational cravings are triggered by stress, exhaustion and sleep deprivation so make it easier on yourself by being well rested and relaxed.

Transformation Task

Take the first step to breaking the sugar habit by embracing ‘Sugar-Free Fridays’ and avoid eating anything with added sugars for the day. Don’t forget that sugar that naturally occurs in foods like fruit, vegetables and milk is A-Okay!

Your Essential Guide to Nail Your Bridal Hands

With a super long to-do list of menu planning, seating arrangements, dress alterations, make-up, etc… your bridal hands and nails are pretty easy to overlook. But when the moment comes for him to slip that special ring on your finger, you’ll want your hands to be photograph ready! Whether you’re planning on getting a manicure, acrylic nails or keeping them natural, this quick and easy bridal hands and nail treatment is a must-do weekly pamper session for any bride to be!

Step One – Remove Old Nail Polish

Always start with a clean base by removing any worn nail polish with some remover on a cotton pad.

Step Two – Exfoliate

As with the rest of your body and face, exfoliation is the key to having smooth skin. Gently massage a little bit of hand or body scrub into each hand. Spend at least a couple of minutes on each hand, working towards the tips of your fingers to polish away any dry skin and reveal a fresh glow. Don’t forget to do the palms of your hands too! These can get quite dry and it’ll help get rid of any tough calluses from your bridal workouts.

bridal handsStep Three – File

Gently file your nails with an emery board to a length and shape that you like.

Step 4 – Care for Your Cuticles

Apply a cuticle remover to your nails to remove any excess skin easily and painlessly.

Step 5 – Strengthen Your Nails

Apply a nail hardener or strengthening treatment to your nails to prevent breakages and ridges.

Step 6 – Moisturise

Once your nail hardener has dried, apply a good quality moisturiser all over your hands. Make sure you work the moisturiser into your nails as well to strengthen and condition them. If you have particularly dry hands, apply a thicker layer before you go to bed and you’ll wake up with beautifully soft hands.

Pamper Project!

Invite your bridesmaids around for a pampering hand and nail session! Give each other a hand scrub, moisturise and have a play with some fun bridal colours.

3 Ideas to LOVE Your Friends and Family on Your Wedding Day

While your wedding day is all about you and your fiancé, it might be the one and only time that you’ll have ALL the people you love in the same place, at the same time. It’s a great opportunity to turn the typical expectation of a wedding on its head and LOVE on your friends and family instead! Being grateful to the people who have shaped your life on this milestone day will help to remind you why you’re here in the first place and allow you to keep your bridechilla when little things do go wrong. For those of you who don’t feel comfortable in the spotlight, it’s also a great way to take a bit of pressure off yourself while you create a loving and happy wedding atmosphere! Here’s a few ways to make your friends and family feel special and celebrated on your wedding day:

At Your Hens Party

You’ll be the object of your Hens night games, laughter and taunting but a fun way to show your friends how special they are to you is to make a game yourself! Share a fun, special, adventurous or embarrassing memory that you made with each of your best girls. It’s a great way to get everyone chatting and them feel nostalgic.

“In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed” – Khalil Gibran

On Your Wedding Day

Write a note for each of your bridesmaids, your fiancé and parents telling them why they mean so much to you, what you’re grateful for and how you see your relationship in your married future. Give it to them on the morning of the wedding to create a positive, happy and loving atmosphere.

After The Wedding

wedding dayInstead of writing generic thank you cards for all of your guests, have some fun with your new husband by recording personal video messages to email to everyone! Personalise it, make it fun and use it to set a date to catch up with as a married couple. Make sure you include:

  • Thanking them for sharing your special day;
  • Telling them why you love them and what it meant to have them at your wedding;
  • Sharing a funny or special memory of them at your wedding;
  • Thanking them for their gift; and
  • Telling them that you’re looking forward to seeing them soon!

Try to record the videos or at least make some notes in the few days after your wedding so it’s easier to remember all of the details. You could even film on your honeymoon at the airport, on the plane or while you’re relaxing on the beach.

Write a message to give to your bridesmaids, partner and parents on the morning of the wedding.

3 Tips to Make Sure Your Wedding Workouts Stay Injury Free!

As your wedding approaches, the frequency and intensity of your workouts are going to increase. Although a ball gown wedding dress is the perfect clothing choice to hide a full leg cast, we want to get you to your wedding day injury free! Being active should improve your enjoyment of life, not leave you a broken mess of aches and pains. Use these 3 tips to reduce the chance of getting injured and make sure that your wedding workouts keep you in top shape!

  1. Core Strengthening

Your core muscles are the deep muscles close to your spine that help to stabilise movement and keep your spine safe. Almost all of your movements are initiated by your core and strengthening these muscles can significantly reduce your chance of hurting your back. Try to consciously engage your core by thinking of ‘holding a wee’ and drawing your belly button towards your spine. Yoga and pilates are also great ways to strengthen your tummy!

  1. wedding workoutsProgressive Overload

When you start your wedding workouts, they will involve more basic movements at a lower intensity. Just like you get better at anything you practice, as your body gets stronger and fitter, you’ll naturally be able to introduce more complex exercises, add more weight and increase how fast you’re moving. Gradually increasing the volume and intensity of your PLAY, instead of jumping straight in the deep end, will reduce your chance of injury. Slow and steady wins the wedding race!

  1. Stretching

Using dynamic stretches before your workout pushes blood into your muscles, warming them up and making them more elastic so they’re less likely to get injured. After your workout, static stretches encourage blood flow to the areas that you’ve used to kick-start the recovery process.

A lot of injuries are actually caused by muscular imbalances from poor posture and incorrect movements. Especially if you spend a lot of time sitting, you may find that the muscles down the front of your body are tight while the muscles at the back are weak. If you exercise without correcting this imbalance, you’re more likely to get injured. Luckily, stretching tight muscles and strengthening the weak ones can fix any imbalances and pain.

If you’ve got any injuries or pain that stop you from moving, don’t go away or get worse then see a physiotherapist or exercise physiologist who will work with you to discover and fix any underlying issues.

Take care of your body, it's the only place you've got to liveTransformation Task

Don’t skip your cool-down sessions! If you do have any pain while you’re doing your wedding workouts, rate it out of 10 and note it in your training journal. For the next week, after you exercise, focus on stretching the muscles around your injured body part, holding each one for 30-60 seconds. After a week, rate your pain again to see if there’s been any progress.

The Dark Side of Weddings and How Forgiveness Can Help

I’m sure you’ll agree, planning your wedding is a huge task! It’s something that’s best done with the help of your friends and family but as the day approaches, emotions often build up and it can be super stressful! Everyone wants to help to create the ‘perfect day’ but when everyone’s got different opinions, expectations and priorities, relationships can be strained at best. As the bride YOU and your husband to be, are at the center of it all and taking the time to foster your closest relationships will make ALL the difference to how much you LOVE your wedding day.

It’s totally normal that with the pressure of a wedding and the huge life change that you’re about to make, emotions do run hot! Sometimes it’s just a result of circumstances, but more often than not, there’s unresolved feelings about past hurt, rejection, jealousy, disapproval or betrayal that are actually causing a problem. These emotions have such a strong effect on the body and can totally steal your bridal joy! To be able to love freely, abundantly and unconditionally you’ll often need to let go and forgive your loved ones for past hurt. Doing so will help you to lighten the load and make your wedding preparation fun and happy again!

Your Two Options – Handcuffs or Forgiveness

forgivenessWhen you’re dealing with bitterness, resentment or anger you’ve only got two options; you can either hold on to it or let it go. By holding on to unhealthy emotions your bodies ‘fight or flight’ response is activated, increasing your stress hormones, blood pressure, heart rate, breathing and body temperature. We feel negative emotions 4-10 times stronger than we feel positive ones so it is only natural that it is hard to let go but by holding on, you’re only handcuffing yourself to the person you blame.

The other option you have is to forgive and let go of the experience that’s causing you so much pain so that you can move on without dragging it around with you. It doesn’t make the past ‘right’ or let someone ‘get away’ with having done something hurtful but it lets YOU feel better. Forgiveness isn’t a feeling but a deliberate choice.

How to Let Go

Forgetting a painful event is almost impossible. The best thing that you can do to help you to forgive someone is to ‘re-frame’ it by focusing on the facts from both perspectives. This should help you to understand the situation the person who hurt you was in when it happened and it might even make you realise that you did something wrong too. Holding on to bitterness, resentment or angerNo one’s perfect and looking at the situation from the other person’s perspective allows you to judge them less harshly. If you can rewrite your story of the event without the blame and emotional intensity that it used to have, then you’ll be able to enjoy having the weight lifted off your shoulders. You’ll be able to get on with living the life that you love and planning for a magnificent and happy marriage!

Transformation Task

Choose a painful event that’s responsible for making your relationship with someone strained. Think about how you could re-frame what happened to forgive them and see what happens.

  3. Provides an opportunity to socialise

    – Not only can you have fun ‘play dates’ with your friends and partner but exercising also gives you an opportunity to make new friends in the gym, in your bootcamp or through a support group.

Fit Your Wedding Dress with Intermittent Fasting

Have you ever tried that standard approach to weight loss – exercise more and eat less but never skip a meal? Has it worked for you or have you found it hard to stick to, been low on energy and craving all the foods that you’re not meant to eat? What if I told you that if you ate normally 5 days a week and only ‘dieted’ for 2 days a week and could lose more weight than if you’d been eating low calories all week? That’s the basis for intermittent fasting and it’s a great wedding dress diet strategy to lose weight more easily!

What is 5:2 Intermittent Fasting?

Intermittent fasting is a sustainable approach to weight loss that’s a great way to lose weight for your wedding without jeopardising your health. It doesn’t mean stopping eating entirely but just reducing the amount of food you eat on some days. The 5:2 or ‘fast diet’ involves cutting your calorie intake to ¼ of your normal level (about 500 calories for women), 2 days a week and eating normally on the other 5 days.

65% of the body's energy is directed to the digestive organs5 Reasons to Try Intermittent Fasting

On your wedding day you’ll want to look healthy, fit and radiant! Intermittent fasting is a great way to lose that extra 5kgs so that you can feel fabulous in your wedding dress without having the stress of trying to stick to a restrictive diet and not having enough energy to work out. Intermittent fasting is ideal for your wedding dress diet because:

  1. It’s easier to stick to

    – More than 80% of dieters fail at trying to eat less calories day after day. Intermittent fasting is easier to stick to so you’ll be less likely to backslide with a tub of ice cream.

  2. Starvation mode is a myth

    – The theory that skipping meals will put your body into ‘starvation mode’ where it stores fat, is untrue. Your body has enough glycogen in the muscles and liver to fuel your body for 3 days without any food at all.

  3. Improved cell repair

    – Skipping 1-2 meals a day for a couple of days a week frees up energy that would be used for digestion and allows your body to repair and recuperate itself.

“It is estimated that 65% of the body’s energy must be directed to the digestive organs after a heavy meal. Fasting has been called the “miracle cure” because it frees up energy and initiates the body’s healing and recuperation mechanisms.”

  1. Healing power

    – Research has shown that intermittent fasting improves a long list of physical conditions including allergies, arthritis, digestive disorders, skin conditions, cardiovascular disease and asthma.

  2. Improved insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance

    – Fasting improves insulin sensitivity and tolerance of gluten which improves your general heath and makes it easier to lose weight.

intermittent fastingHow Much Will I Lose?

If you use the 5:2 approach to intermittent fasting women should lose around 0.5kgs per week. The key to your success is not over-eating on non-fasting days but eating your normal, healthy diet!

Transformation Task

Pick 2 non-consecutive days this week to try 5:2 intermittent fasting. On these days you’ll reduce your energy intake to 500 calories and eat a normal amount on the other 5 days. Mondays and Thursdays are great for most people but choose something that works with your schedule and try to avoid fasting on your hardest workout days.

“There is nothing else you can do to your body that is as powerful as fasting” – Michael Mosley
