Getting Fit(ter) for the Wedding
Weddings usually have a lot of fitness circulating them. Well, more so, that the pair preparing to get married want to look good and so they get super healthy beforehand. In fact, a lot of bloggers start out this way: blogging their fitness and healthy eating up to the special date. Hungry and I are pretty good about working out regularly, it’s something we enjoy and so we do it often. However, when it comes to food, we have our ups and downs. We can be off or on. Usually, we’re fairly healthy (not like we pig out at McD’s or anything ever). However, we pretty much eat what we want. I’ve decided to embark on a 2-month program to help touch up my health a bit.
What does this mean? I want to look my best on our special day. So, on Monday, I started Bodybuilding.com Marc Megna’s 8-Week Amp Trainer. I know, long title. Basically, I just needed some sort of set plan to follow and I needed to clean up my nutrition. See, even personal trainers need plans for themselves! I always appreciate Bodybuilding.com’s plans as they are very well thought out and there are so many of them that you can pick which fits your needs best. This Amp program focuses on performance and aesthetics. I have a mud run coming up, so the performance will come in handy, and aesthetics…well, who doesn’t want to look good!
Now, I’m not going full throttle on this like I did on my last program. My wedding dress fits perfectly right now. I don’t want to lose too much mass, I just want to cut a bit of my arms and touch up. So, I won’t be sticking 100% to the carefully picked out food items I can have, but I am going to put in a good effort to follow the plan. I’m going to see how everything is going a month out, and if I find the dress doesn’t fit as well, I will modify. This is basically an effort to simply be healthier before our special day.
I encourage you to look through Bodybuilding.com’s programs. You can put in your own specs and what you’re looking to do. Plans are incredibly helpful when you’re not sure how to pursue your goals, you’re bored, or you’re feeling stuck. When I have a plan, I’m more dedicated, and I eat way cleaner. They’re not always easy, but it also builds my favorite mental muscle, willpower. It’s also fun if you can invite someone along to participate in your plan. I’m hoping for support from friends, family, and you guys! What better support than to join me?! At the end, I will do a review of the program and how I found it to be. Stick to a program to stay hungry and fit!
