Wedding Weight loss

Abs are Made in the Kitchen, Not the Gym: Wedding Weight loss
Did you know that diet is the most important aspect when aiding in losing weight? Both are very important; however, eating the right balance of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates is essential to building muscle,
shedding fat, and slimming down for the big day. So, get started on your wedding weight loss today!
We suggest making small changes over time rather than going cold turkey with a diet. You are much more apt to cheating and failure if you treat it as a punishment rather than a lifestyle. If you can start with six steps to creating a better physique, here are our list toppers in matter of importance:
 cut out store bought treats (i.e. junk food!)
 cut way back on white flour and refined sugar
 add healthy fats to diet such as nuts, avocados, and coconut oil
 track calories to make sure food consumption is less than
calories burned in exercise
 add more lean protein to diet such as lean chicken, fish, and Greek yogurt
 increase water intake and cut out sugary drinks Figuring out your caloric needs without exercise is the first step.
Here is a quick trick from Fitness Guru, trainer, and model, Jamie Eason.
 Multiply your goal weight by 10. Example: 130 pounds x 10 = 1,300 calories. This is the bare minimum amount of calories your body needs just to survive.
 Consider your activity level. If you’re sedentary, add 300-400 calories to the bare minimum number. If you weight train on a regular basis, add 400-700 calories. If you’re extremely physically active on a daily basis then add 800-1000 calories.
Example: 1,300 calories (bare minimum) + 700 (for weightlifters) = 2,000 calories.
Remember, these need to be CLEAN calories. Jamie Eason also recommends eating 5-6 small meals per day. So if you’re eating 1,800 calories a day divide that by 6. Your meals should roughly be around 300 calories. Think Greek yogurt with fresh fruit, and almonds or apple with almond butter. A great tool to track your eating habits is with sites like My Fitness Pal. This app seems to have the best balance of pre-loaded meals, takeout, and chains. Although, we aren’t highly recommending you eat out all that often. Speaking of which, cooking from scratch or cooking light is the best way to handle portion control and butter/fat intake. Some wonderful, low-fat/low-calorie, nutrient dense sites include:

Bachelorette Pole Dance Party

Bachelorette Pole Dance Party
Technically, it’s the maid or matron of honor’s job to scout out the bachelorette party but there’s no harm in hinting! If you’re bold, sassy and sexy–and hey, you are–why not try something unique and perhaps a little risqué? There’s a hot work out called Pole Dancing, and while the name may be tied to strip clubs, this dancing fantasy is not about taking your clothes off. Pole dancing can be more of a gymnastic art form than stripper girl. It’s a total body work out that also lets women’s inner kittens come out to play. A bachelorette pole dance party is more for you and your girls to make great memories and also tone those bodies!
Dance studios such as Naperville’s Tease Dance and Fitness or Geneva’s Tiger Lily Vertical Fitness offer private sessions on the weekends for bachelorette pole dance parties. You’ll be instructed in the fine art of pole dancing by a certified pole instructor. Learn how to strut around the pole and do spins that make you feel like you’re flying. It’s a great way to burn those calories off as well as get your sexy on! You can go barefoot or bring heels to show off those legs. The attire is usually general work out style–shorts, tank and a sports bra. Or, you can spice it up with boas, sparkly bras and bride short shorts. There’s no such thing as too much glitter here. If you’re not into dancing around a pole, they also offer strip tease classes that give you moves to make your man melt.

Call each studio for more information on pricing. It’s a lot of fun and a safe, woman empowering environment. Check with the studio about how many girls are able to fit in one dance room but there’s usually room for up to 6. They have candles, large mirrors and teach you stretching before warming up the poles. It doesn’t hurt that you burn a lot of calories in addition to it being the best bachelorette pole dance party ever! You may even find you pick up a new work out hobby.

Go give it a chance or, if you’re the one planning it, give your bride a night they won’t forget!
