How To Get In Shape For A Wedding With Tally Rye

By Tally Rye

On average, 28 weddings happen EVERY hour. That’s a lot of beautiful brides walking down the aisle! If you’re about to get married, chances are you haven’t had time to think about health and fitness, so we’ve made it easy for you.

That’s right – working with the one and only Tally Rye, we’ve got some top bridal tips on how to get trim in the months leading up to the big day.

Looking amazing on your big day is a must and chances are you’ve hit the gym, tried spin classes, pilates and boot-camp! But you’re still not getting the results you want, so what are you doing wrong?

Turns out you should focus on the small changes to make a BIG impact on your Hitched.co.uk wedding journey.

Be careful what you drink

Don’t try to do it all at once – start by staying relaxed to prevent your body storing up fat. Switch that 4pm snack from chocolate to our very own protein chocolate.

On your special day, you want to feel good on the inside and out. You want glowing skin, glossy hair and minimal bloat. By following my advice, I hope you can achieve just that

So without further ado, by the power vested in me by MuscleFood, I hereby pronounce these 9 steps to get in shape for your wedding…

1. Bring the lunchbox back

Lunchbox

Eating out every day at work adds up the pennies and the calories. Try making a healthy lunch full of all the goodies you need to keep your energy levels high for work.

My top tip is to make a big chilli at the weekend using turkey mince or lean beef mince. Each day, portion it up and try putting it with wholegrain rice, sweet potato, or low carb alternatives such as courgetti.

2. Don’t fear fats

Fats do not make you fat so enjoy a diet with good levels of polyunsaturated fats. Start making simple swaps to your diet such as mashed avocado on your toast instead of low fat spread or mixed seeds and nuts on your yoghurt instead of sugary granola.

Or try smoked salmon with your eggs instead of sausages. This gives your body the essential fats it needs to run at its optimal level, meaning it will boost your immune system, are anti-inflammatory and get Vitamin E into your body.

3. Do not cut out carbs

You should be beginning to work out regularly now and that means you will need carbohydrates to fully maximise your work. Try lowering your intake of refined carbs such as white bread, pasta, pastries and biscuits by simply swapping for 7 Sprouted Grains Bread, wholegrain rice, oats and whey and sweet potatoes.

4. Start your day with a protein rich breakfast

This could include eggs, salmon, Greek yoghurt or turkey bacon. These will not only kick start your metabolism for the day, but will also help you get sufficient levels of protein in your diet to help create a lean sculpted figure.

5. Rest and recover

Be careful not to over train. You may be surprised to hear that it’s important to have at least one day a week to let your body recover from a week of intense exercise. Sleep in, go for a walk and enjoy some down time.

Eight hours sleep a night is ideal for keeping your body at its best and energy levels high throughout the week. Sleep is also key in keeping those stress levels down.

6. Drink more water

Aim to drink 2-3 litres of water every day. Also, try and lower your alcohol intake as high sugar cocktails and pints of beer can be calorie dense. Alcohol can also be extremely dehydrating, causing your body to stay puffy and bloated.

7. Stop Stressing

Start taking ten minutes a day to unwind, relax and reflect. That may well be anything from a candlelit bubble bath, to getting arty with a colouring book. If your stress levels are high, it will raise your cortisol levels meaning your body is more likely to store fat.

8. Enjoy a treat

Once or twice a week, enjoy a meal out or a special dessert. This is to avoid a ‘binge’ mentality. As soon as we tell ourselves we can’t have any ‘naughty’ foods, we instantly crave them and this often leads to falling off the wagon in spectacular fashion.

Instead, make healthy choices and habits 80% of the time, and 20% of the time enjoy your treats and don’t feel guilty. This way, it becomes a maintainable lifestyle as opposed to a short-lived health kick.

9. Snack Attack

Instead of opting for the nearest snack in the vending machine try these alternatives; apple slices and Salted Caramel Prutella, Yogland Froyo, cheese and onion high protein crisps or chocolate coconut almonds, cashews, Eat Natural dark chocolate bar.

Be careful what you drink

Honestly, If I can do it, then so can you! From an overweight teen (who hated exercise) to now working in London as a Personal Trainer- I could never have predicted the path my life would take. But I couldn't be happier or healthier and I want that for you too!

Big changes don't happen overnight- this has been 5 years in the making! But start 2016 by changing little habits- maybe challenge yourself to workout for 30 mins 3 x a week! Or even simple things like taking the stairs instead of the lift or escalator! 

Start by drinking more water each day & getting 8 hours of sleep each night. These little differences will soon help you FEEL good and ready to make more significant changes. 

One step at a time.
