So I’m getting married in one month from today! It’s absolutely insane how fast the past almost year and a half since I got engaged has flown by, and I know the next 31 days will zoom past too. Thank goodness most of the planning is done, and I’m so excited to be married!
But with one month from the special day, I’ve been revamping my health kick I’ve been on for a while and ramping it up a notch. I normally try to watch what I eat, fit in more veggies into my diet, and stay active – but now that I’m in the last stretch I’m trying to really stay focused!
Now obviously a wedding is not about how you look, and the most important thing is that I’m getting to marry the love of my life (sappy, but true)! But that doesn’t mean that I don’t want to look my best and more importantly – FEEL my best – on this important day. I want to feel good about myself, have energy to enjoy the reception, feel rested and energized for our honeymoon, and start this chapter feeling healthy and happy. Being healthy isn’t just about appearances, but it makes a huge difference in attitude and energy levels! And wanting to look my best is just another plus! So I have some goals I’m going to stick to for the next few weeks for my bridal countdown… Anyone else with me?
1. Make healthy eating a lifestyle habit. Instead of eating healthy because I have to, I want to be in the habit of it and enjoy it. I know that I’ve already stopped wanting a lot of the unhealthy food I used to eat, and I’ve been trying to branch out and try new foods!
2. Workout 5 days a week with active rest days. In my opinion, an overall active lifestyle is the best way to stay healthy. I’ve been trying to take my dog on more walks, park farther from the door, etc in order to incorporate activity in normal activities. I also have my 10,000 step goal with my UP band, but that is hard to reach! So reaching that goal more often would be great.
3. Drink 10 glasses of water a day. This one normally isn’t too hard for me. At least while I’m at work, I drink a ton of water. The weekends are my weakness since I’m not just sitting at my desk with my water tumbler. So I want to make sure to stick with it every day!
