Did you get extra fit to look stunning in your gown? Or maybe you worked out extra hard to be the hottest bridesmaid wearing the ugliest dress? Maybe the big event you were losing weight for was your 10 year or 20 year high school reunion. Now that the event is over, how do you stay motivated to maintain all those glorious changes?
Here are a few ideas:
- Get Competitive: If you are goal oriented or need an event to get you moving, sign up for a race. If you have been running for exercise pick an upcoming race in your area and enter the fray. Active.com is a great way to find races in your area.
- Mix it Up: Try new forms of exercise. Experiment with different classes like: cardio kickboxing, Body Pump, or Punk Rope.
- Exercise with Your Husband: Turn your new husband into you fitness buddy with these ideas on how to get physical with your man.
- Find an Exercise Buddy: If working out is your refuge and you don't want to share those moments with your man, find a different exercise partner like a friend, neighbor or co-worker. Make a standing date with your buddy and don't stand your buddy up.
