Congratulations—you’re engaged! How exciting! Now that you’ve got the ring on your finger, chances are you’re picturing your big day and how you’ll look in your wedding dress. If you’re wanting to get extra toned and in the best shape of your life before your wedding day, now’s the time to start thinking about it. To save yourself stress and aggravation, start training for your wedding six months before your big days. Here are some tips on how to get in shape.

Start Small

As mentioned, start working out at least six months before your wedding so you don’t feel the need to to overtrain or follow an intense diet. Begin with a 10-minute full-body workout and when you’re ready increase your training until you get to an hour.

Mix Cardio and Strength Training

Make sure your workouts have a balance of cardio like running, Pilates, HIIT, and spinning and strength training like squats and deadlifts. This will help tone up your muscles and get you nice and slim.

Focus on Your Core

Don’t forget to target your core with ab workouts. This will sculpt your waist and give you an hourglass figure.

Eat Healthily

While working out is a great step for getting into shape, you also need to eat healthily. Load your meals with whole grains and cut out processed ones. Make sure you’re eating more lean protein and healthy fats, which will maximize the effects of your workouts.
