Pre-wedding tips to help you get started on your health and fitness journey
The majority of brides who come to me have already tried different ways of dieting, so my advice is to start from the basics. What I mean by this is to start to understand food basics. We live in a world where let's face it, there's a diet culture, and brides especially feel the sort of pressure to look a certain way. So, if your main goal is to look a certain way for the wedding, let's do it in the healthiest way possible. I don't fully agree with dieting because it puts this idea into our heads that there are such things as good and bad foods which isn't the case. If a bride comes to me with no prior knowledge of where to start, I'd get them to start by creating a food diary for themselves. This is such a useful tool to help brides to become aware of what they're currently eating. My strategy is all about figuring out where you are now, where you'd like to go and how to get there in the healthiest way possible. And, if we hit roadblocks along the way, the best thing to do is to look back and figure out why and then tweak things to make progress possible. That goes for our training too.
