Since I started my Hey Workout sessions I realised that to motivate myself I needed a plan – a clear idea of what I wanted to achieve and how I am going to achieve it. Part of setting my pre wedding fitness plan is measuring all those bits that you never want to measure and figuring out which workouts will help tackle the areas that I consider to be the biggest problems. I may also have to admit to myself yet again that I sometimes eat a little bit too much of what I fancy.
- Arms – 28.5cm
- Thighs – 63.5cm
- Waist – 76.5cm
- Hips – 96cm
- Bust – 88cm
- Under Bust – 77cm
In simple terms, I’m sort of between a size 10 and 12. My top is a size 10ish, I have fairly narrow shoulders, prominent collarbones and smallish boobies. Then there’s my hips and waist. They’re a little larger than a size 10 – typically, a whole size bigger. I’m definitely pear shaped. I also have proper bingo wing arms, I don’t really do anything that requires upper body strength apart from when I pick up Oliver.
From what I have written above you can probably tell what I’m going to say my target areas are – my middle/bum area and my arms! I’d love to have toned arms; lets face it, every bride thinks about those side shots where her arms look three times bigger than you ever realised they were. On top of that you want the nice silhouette, curvy but not rounded and a smooth line instead of lumps and bumps all over the place. This is particularly important for people like me who refuse to wear shapewear or be uncomfortable and unable to eat on their wedding day. If I’m spending a fortune on food I am damn well eating it!
The Pre Wedding Fitness Plan
To get in to shape I will be planning each day, I’m going to try to have a routine for each day of the week because I think that will help me be consistent and know where I am at.
Yoga because I’m sure that after the weekend I might need a little bit of calm, it will give me a good start to the week and get my energy flowing too.
Lower Body and Upper Body as the workouts are only 30 minutes long each it means that I will only need an hour to do two workouts.
Rest day I want to be rested to fully enjoy my yoga class and be able to fully participate without restricting myself from any aches and pains from the day before.
Yoga – The session is around 1 hour, 15minutes and is led by my fabulous yoga teacher Emily (for another 4 weeks at least). The sessions are only on during term time, so I will have to keep myself going every Thursday during the holidays. I can either do an extra Hey Workout session in that case or I can use my Daily Yoga app.
The focus of the sessions really depends on what Emily has planned, but she is focusing on the chakras in the head/mind at the moment until the end of term.
Occasional extra evening session depending on how I’m feeling and if Oliver is in bed at a sensible hour. We are in the one-to-no-nap transition phase at the moment.
Friday is my mad cleaning frenzy day. It’s not uncommon for us to have guests or visitors of a weekend so I therefore use Fridays to do my bathroom and getting my kitchen spotless for the possibility of entertaining (and vacuuming the entire house). I totally feel like this is a workout in itself!
Cardio This could be a long walk, we often take Oliver out at weekends or take the in-laws dogs on walks over the weekends.
Cardio As above, weekend walks, or if we can’t get out I will do a bit of running up and down the stairs a ‘few’ times.
