After the big day, many brides ask that same question, wondering how to stay motivated and keep active now that they are no longer planning for the biggest day of their lives. I am here to tell you that it is absolutely possible to stay motivated forever (just like your marriage).
Here are a few tricks to get you going:
Now that you know your goal dates, begin working backwards. What would you like to accomplish by those dates? Did you gain a few pounds on your honeymoon that you want to lose by your next big work presentation? Is there a new outfit that would look great on you if you only added some definition to your calves? Be realistic and be honest. Armed with this knowledge you can continue to maintain and even reach new goals.
Many recruits in our Bootcamp360 regiments set a "Danger Zone" for themselves so that they don't slink back into their old habits and ruin all that hard earned sweat. Set a 5-pound "Danger Zone" rule. If you are 5-pounds heavier than you were on the day of your wedding than its time to really assess your habits and kick it up a notch. Setting this "Zone" will keep you from gaining 10 pounds or more before you know it and we all know how quickly that can happen.
While none of these activities should replace your workouts, they will certainly help you burn more calories and boost your energy. Think of them as a bonus to your daily workouts.
