Are you sweating for a wedding?

There must be love in the air!  So many people (both guys and girls) have joined the 5.4 8 week challenge, because they are getting married in Spring.  What an exciting time for them!

So often, shortly after someone gets engaged, they get laser focused about their health and fitness ahead of their wedding.

The thing is, planning a wedding can be pretty stressful. It’s supposed to be one of the happiest times of your life, but there are loads of unwanted stresses along the way. All the cliches are true! Doing your guest list sucks. Doing your budget sucks. Sticking to your budget sucks even more. There are people at every corner who really want to rip you off, and will do their very best to emotionally blackmail you in to getting unnecessary things for “your special day”. You do not need the added BS of sculpting your arms or nipping in your waist or lengthening your limbs, or whatever it is the wedding industry thinks you should do.

Our advice is this. Your wedding should be the happiest day of your life (or at least one of) because you are marrying the love of your life. You have found someone you really love, who really loves you back, and that is wonderful. Please don’t let anything dim that joy, especially not any notions that you should look a certain way.

If you do want to shape up a bit, cool! Go for it! Just don’t get hung up on it. Your body fat percentage does not determine your happiness, your worth, or the value of the commitment you make on your wedding day.

I’m pretty sure that the person lucky enough to be marrying you thinks you’re beautiful just the way you are!
