Ten Top Tips For Looking Trim On Your Wedding Day

November 30th, 2011 | Julia Braime

.

Ok, ok, so I appreciate that I have been somewhat of a cake facilitator over the past few weeks, what with my Great Brides Up North Birthday Bakeaway (you can find all the links to the giveaways here) and all that, but at least I am keeping things in equilibrium! 

.

This morning on the wedding blog, personal trainer Jenny Cromack of Motive 8 North (and the lady behind that Bridal Bootcamp that recently saw me lose 18 inches all over plus nearly a stone in weight! Oh yeeeah!) talks us through her top tips for looking trim on your wedding day.

.

.

Brides Up North UK Wedding Blog: Rainbow Club

.

.

  1. Interval Training
  2. .

Forget pounding the treadmill for hours on end, research shows that performing interval training within your workouts is a more effective way of burning fat and boosts your metabolism for longer following a workout. Try this intense interval session during your next workout. Sprint for 60 seconds as fast as you can, walk or jog for 60 seconds. Repeat this sequence 10 times. If you don’t like running then do your intervals on a bike or rowing machine. Include interval training in your workout 2-3 times per week.

.

.

  1. Weight Training
  2. .

Many women often skip doing weights in the gym, for fear of bulking up. However, women don’t have enough testosterone to bulk up from moderate weight lifting. Increasing your lean muscle mass will speed up your metabolism and burn more body fat. Perform exercises which use big muscle groups like press ups, squats, rows and lunges.

.

.

  1. Banish the Bingo Wings
  2. .

Every bride wants to have nice shapely arms for her big day. Try performing the following workout 3 times per week. 12-15 x Press Ups (on the knees is ok!), 12-15 x Seated Rows, 12-15 x Tricep Dips, 12-15 x Bicep Curls.  Repeat this circuit x 2.

.

.

  1. Don’t Forget the Legs
  2. .

Although your legs might be hidden under your wedding dress, you’ll want nice pins for your honeymoon bikini!  Include exercises such as squats and lunges in your workouts to hit the legs. As the legs are big muscle groups they will also use more energy so if you want to lose weight they are an important part of your workout.

.

.

  1. Ditch the Booze
  2. .

A glass of wine contains around 180 calories, so if you have 1-2 glasses of wine per night it’s easy to see why it’s hard to lose weight!  Additionally, the calories in alcohol provide no nutritional value, hence the reason they are often known as ‘empty calories’ . The liver is responsible for breaking down alcohol and fat, but perhaps because of alcohol’s toxicity, the liver prioritises breaking down alcohol first rather than metabolizing fat which can lead to weight gain.

.

.

Don’t Crash Diet

.

Although you need to reduce your calorie intake to see a change in your weight, drastically cutting calories will cause your body to go into starvation mode which will actually cause your body to hold onto body fat and making it harder for you to lose weight. If you are drastically restricting your food intake, you will be more tempted to binge on the foods you like so stick to a healthy eating plan instead based around slow release, wholegrain carbohydrates, lean proteins and lots of veggies.

.

.

Eat Little & Often

.

Eating little and often keeps the metabolism revved up, meaning you will burn energy at a higher rate, plus you’ll also be less likely to snack on unhealthy food.  Aim to have 5-6 healthy, small meals per day or 3 healthy meals, with 2 small snacks in between.

.

.

Don’t Get Stressed!

.

Easier said than done in the lead up to your big day, but being constantly stressed causes an increase in a hormone called cortisol. Cortisol stimulates the appetite and induces cravings for sugar and fat and if this is not bad enough cortisol also signals the body to store fat around the abdominal area.

.

.

  1. Lacking Motivation?
  2. .

Find it hard to motivate yourself to workout? Get your bridesmaids or ushers together and make a pact to workout on a regular basis.  You can encourage each other when one of you is having an ‘off-day’…give each other a forfeit for any missed sessions! Alternatively, find an activity you really enjoy doing, since you’re more likely to stick to it if you enjoy it!

.

.

  1. Prioritise Your Workouts
  2. .

We know you have a million and one things going on in the lead up to your big day, but if you want to look good then you must prioritise healthy eating and exercise and make both become a part of your daily routine. Schedule your workouts into your diary like you would an important meeting and don’t let anything interrupt you from doing it!

Brides Up North BOOTCAMP: Week 11 – The Final Push!

November 12th, 2011 | Julia Braime

.

Yesterday, this spent a glorious half hour trying on my old “skinny” jeans, fastening the top button, and jumping around the bedroom in glee.  Yes, I do that sort of thing.  And if that’s not enough to persuade you to give Brides Up North Bootcamp a try, I don’t know what is!

.

.

Brides Up North UK Wedding Blog: Bridal Bootcamp

.

.

This morning, its straight over to my new hero, Jenny Cromack of Motive 8 North, to talk you through Week 11: Welcome to the penultimate week of the ! Only two more weeks to get in shape for your big day!

.

Although there is nothing like a wedding to motivate someone to get in shape, I hope that the Bootcamp has encouraged you to make positive lifestyle changes and you will continue to include healthy eating and exercise as part of your everyday life. Why put all of that hard work and effort into 12 weeks, only to undo it all again?  Being active isn’t just about looking great on the outside but also about being healthy on the inside so make Julia and I a promise and keep it up in the long term.

.

This week’s workout is similar to last week’s workout so we will continue to work in tri-sets but your last exercise is always an abdominal or core exercise which means that your abs are going to get a workout continuously throughout the session.

.

We’re also going to give those upper arms a good blast by hitting two consecutive muscle groups back to back for your upper body to give your upper arms that final push.

.

Have a great week, remember all exercise, no matter how little you do is beneficial so squeeze in those workout whenever you can… it all adds up!

.

Brides Up North BOOTCAMP: Week 10 – Tri-umphant!

November 3rd, 2011 | Julia Braime

.

Brides Up North Wedding Blog: Bootcamp

.

.

You didn’t think you were getting away with it this week did you Brides Up North? 

.

Let’s hear from Jenny Cromack of Motive 8 North: Welcome to Week 10 on the Brides Up North Bootcamp! We’re getting close to the end now, so think of this as your final sprint to the finish… a big push over the next three weeks to get you looking stunning for your big day!

.

This week’s toning workout is going to focus on tri-sets. Tri-sets are one of my favourite ways of training and are three toning exercises performed one after each other.  You can mix and match between muscle groups but we are going to split our tri-sets into exercises which work similar muscle groups or muscle groups which work together (for example, triceps and chest) to really push each area. If you want an even bigger calorie burn during this workout then add a minute of cardio such as skipping, star jumps, shadow boxing etc in between each tri-set.

.

Keep focused ladies… the aisle is in sight! I do hope you are all feeling and looking great as all of the hard work should be paying off!

.

If you need any more exercise advice or tips please email me at jenny.cromack@m8group.co.uk.

Brides Up North BOOTCAMP: Week Eight – Raise The Barre!

October 20th, 2011 | Julia Braime

.

Brides Up North BOOTCAMP

.

.

This works.

.

This weekend, I did something I didn’t think I’d ever do after the age of eight.  I donned leggings, a tutu and leg warmers and went out in public.  And felt good about it.  I actually felt better about it that I did aged eight, as this time around there was no actual ballet involved (I was a bit of a tomboy before my natural love of pink took over).  It may have been fancy dress, yes, but thanks to Jenny Cromack of Motive 8 North and Brides Up North Bootcamp, no one thought that Halloween had come early.

.

If you are hoping to tone up a little, shift a few pounds or maybe just feel fit, well and buzzing with energy before you walk down that aisle – give Brides Up North Bootcamp a whirl.  I’m sticking with it. 

.

Just starting out?  Check out the Brides Up North Bootcamp pages for everything you need to know including the weekly fitness plans right from the start, the eating plan, hints and tips, handy food and exercise diaries, the exercises explained and my progress. 

.

.

.

Have you entered our amazing competition to win three personal training sessions to the value of £135 with our very own Jenny Cromack of Motive 8 North?  If you want to enter just click here and leave a comment…

.

.

Over to Ms Cromack and into Week Eight – we are flying now ladies:  I know it can be hard to fit in your daily  sessions, but if you want to look stunning on your big day you need to ensure you commit to your exercise regime and healthy eating plan.   I promise you it will be worth every minute you have sweated during your workouts!  You need to ensure that exercise and healthy eating is a priority alongside everything else you have going on in your life. If you are ever struggling to fit a longer workout into your day then don’t stress, just aim to complete a shorter 30 minute workout and work as hard as you can in those 30 minutes!

.

.

Brides Up North BOOTCAMP! Week 7: A Dress Size Down!

October 13th, 2011 | Julia Braime

.

After the gorgeous sugar rush of this morning, it’s straight into this week’s instalment of Brides Up North Bootcamp! Cruel, I know, but I like to keep you brides to be on your toes!

.

.

First things first – have you entered our amazing competition to win three personal training sessions to the value of £135 with our very own Jenny Cromack of Motive 8 North?  If you want to enter just click here and leave a comment…

.

Jenny is a motivational miracle worker, trust me!  After 7 weeks of Bootcamp, I have lost 15 inches all over – a whole dress size! I’m feeling fitter than ever and looking leaner and more toned. 

.

To view my vital statistics and progress (eep!) click here.

Get on it brides to be!

Brides Up North Wedding Blog: Bootcamp

.

.

Let’s hear from Jenny: Hello! You’re over half way through the Brides Up North Bootcamp  now and you should not only be looking great, but feeling great too!

.

This week we’re going to continue to focus on hitting those key areas for you to look great on your big day. There are lots of exercises to focus on the upper back and chest areas and upper arms so you look super slinky in your dress…and although your legs may or may not be hidden on the day, we’ve still got lots of squats and lunges in the workout so your pins look great on honeymoon.

.

This week’s toning session continues to focus on circuit training – make sure you change from exercise to exercise as quick as possible to maximise fat burning!  You’re also going to focus on combining some of your leg and upper body exercises, not only will this make your workout more time effective but it will also burn more calories as you’ll be hitting more than one muscle group in one go.

.

During your cardiovascular workouts this week I want you to really push yourself, make sure you include a 20 minute interval training session in at least one of your workouts to shed those pounds. Why not try a new cardiovascular activity that you’ve not done before to stop boredom creeping in?

.

Work hard and have a great workout this week….go for it!

WIN! Three Personal Training Sessions With Motive 8 North! (CLOSED)

October 11th, 2011 | Julia Braime

.

So, I have a little something to share with you all this afternoon.  I’m feeling super proud of myself having lost 15 inches all over (and a dress size!) so far on the Brides Up North Bootcamp plan with Jenny Cromack of Motive 8 North.

.

Did you see hear that?  15 inches all over!  Whoop whoop! 

.

A whole year of juggling life as a lawyer and a had quite visibly taken it’s toll – very (very) late nights at my computer plus very bad food as a result of having little time to prepare food or cook properly had left me feeling bloated and sluggish, with bad skin and lank hair too.  Not the most attractive newlywed then!  But fast forward six weeks and it’s been really hard work, but I am feeling fit and fabulous right now and very happy in my own skin, which I think is the main thing.  Big smiles all round.  Ms Cromack is fun, fabulous and has got me back on the right track.  I actually love her a little bit. 

.
