They have a very specific deadline
Their Wedding Day, which only goes to show how important having a goal date in mind can be.
If you don’t have a wedding or similar event coming up, then set yourself a target in the near future (eg 2-3 months) and write a list of what you want to achieve by then.
Be as specific as you can. If you know that you want to lose a certain amount of cms from your waist by April, or improve your skin it will make it easier for you to stay on track.
Now that you have your main goal, break it down even further into weekly and fortnightly targets that are much easier to stick to such as drinking 2 litres water a day or eating 1 cup veggies with every dinner.
You’ll reach your date and your goals and have made so many amazing changes and short term goals allow you to reassess how you are going and the rate you are going at so you are on track for that goal date!
They seek out answers when things aren’t working
So you have not seen the results that you hoped for from your training or new fancy diet?
Brides need results and have no time to ‘wait and see’ if the latest fad diet is right for them: they take action and seek professional advice to ensure they have everything covered.
Dedication is key
Brides aren’t going to let a silly little thing like a blow out get in the way of achieving their goals. Sure you may accidently splurge on chocolate, or have one too many wines. That doesn’t mean that you need to finish the packet or the bottle!
Pick yourself up, drink a lot of water, get a good night sleep and start fresh in the morning.
They limit their drinking
Being a bride often equates to a lot of celebrations, but as the Big Day draws near brides recognise that being drunk, eating crap, being hungover and eating more crap are not conducive to a svelte figure on their wedding day. Limiting alcohol as an after-dinner treat, putting water between each drink to rehydrate and save the skin, and picking and choosing which social events really require liquid calorie consumption are smart ways to decrease your drinking, your waistline and your tired pale looking skin issues.
