12 Months to Your

Wedding Body

According to this infographic from Wedding Paper Divas, 40 percent of couples wait 13 to 18 months between "Yes!" and "I do."

With that in mind, you have a good year to prepare for everything. One of the highlights of course is your dress but admit it or not, it may be the prettiest and priciest, but unless the body in it isn't in its best shape, it woudn't knock anyone's socks off. 

So you want to start early working on that body. Weddings are a great incentive to finally walk the walk and not just talk the talk in getting fit. 

They say tackling so many things at once almost always guarantee failure and the key is to focus on one thing at a time. Your advantage though is time if you get started early.

Aside from regular (not necessarily hardcore) workouts and the general rule of thumb of eating less, start developing habits, one at a time, each month.

My monthly theme this year is abstinence and below are the things I'm letting go of. The idea is to not only go without them for that particular month but it rolls over to, well, forever. I don't plan on being fanatical about it and I must admit, forever's a long time. But let's say for example, rice. If sometime in the future I crave for some Dragon Roll, I wouldn't deprive myself of it. So I'll still have some rice (not pig out on it). These occasions would be theexception. Again, the main rule of thumb is to EAT LESS.

So, if you'll join me in this exciting project, read below. 

January - No rice.

February - No soda (even diet).

March - No sweets.

April - No vape (looking forward to this).

May - No eating after 6pm.

June - No soy sauce and very salty foods.

July - No fried foods (can I survive without fried chicken?).

August - No pork.

September - No processed foods.

October - No seconds.

November - No eating from regular sized plates.

December - No chips (there's a reason I saved this in particular for last even if, technically, this is already covered in July and September).

I'm happy to report that it's already almost the end of January and I haven't had not one grain of rice. It's a good start. I'll let you know how it's going each month.
