Right now I am on this huge health kick so, I have been watching what I eat and have been working out about twice a week. I have two tools that have been helping me and I wanted to let you in on my little secret!
There is this great app called “myfitnesspal” that I got for my iPad. You make a profile where you set your goal weight and decide how many times you are going to exercise each week. It then calculates how many carbs, calories, fat, protein, sugar and sodium you can intake each day in order to reach your goal. You can maintain a food log that will let you know if you went over on your daily limit of each nutrients consumed. If you can’t find the type of food through the search engine, you can actually scan the bar code with the camera! So cool! I have found this very helpful to track what I eat and so far I have lost 5 pounds! Wooh wooh wooh! (One Direction reference)
I got this great little book from my local Winners called “How to be a Beautiful Bride” by Jacqui Ripley (And it was a steal cause I got it for $3!). It has a chapter all about fitness and good exercises that help you loose that extra bit of weight before the wedding day. I have found these exercises quite helpful and I think any “bulging bride” could benefit from them. Some of the tips highlighted in the book are; taking the stairs whenever you can for an all around butt and leg shaper, put on your favourite song and dance, walk in heels to train your legs to produce muscle and much more!
