Do you feel pressure to lose weight now that you are engaged? More often than not, may brides to-be embark on strenuous exercise routines and fad diets to lose dramatic amounts of weight in the lead up to their big day, only to pile the pounds back on straight after.

My own BARE update…
I’ve been training at BARE for just over three weeks now and so far I’m absolutely loving it. I’m trying to follow the diet program and attend 3-4 classes of cross fit and small group training a week. My previous exercise routine was a casual walk with the dogs, maybe a trip to the gym every once in a while and the odd swim here and there. But three weeks on I’m happy to say I’m a fitness convert. I had no idea I would be enjoying it as much as I am, and the funny thing is I really can’t imagine not working out now.
My first class was intense and I was training with a few people who had obviously had some experience and were quite frankly way more fit than I was. However, I tried my best and as Dylan would say ‘I smashed it’. It’s a nice phrase to hear when you’ve just finished 60 minutes of cross fit and have turned the colour of a beetroot.
On my 2nd visit I met with BARE Coach Kate who spent just under an hour with me discussing my lifestyle, my current fitness routine aka walking the dog, and my eating habits. I also had a complete body composition assessment.
Wondering what that is? Well Wikipedia has the answer…
‘In physical fitness, body composition is used to describe the percentages of fat, bone, water and muscle in human bodies. Because muscular tissue takes up less space in our body than fat tissue, our body composition, as well as our weight, determines leanness.’
Last Thursday I was asked to jump back on the body comp machine to see how I was doing 3 weeks on. I must admit I was nervous. I felt like I had toned up and lost a bit of weight but nothing drastic. Turns out I lost 2.4 % body fat, gained 1.7kg of muscle and lost 0.5kgs in weight. I’ve decided not to share my ‘before and after’ photo yet because my ‘after’ body is ready yet. Lol.. I’m guessing it might take more than a few weeks to look like a Victoria Secrets model?
Anyway, I really hope to see someone of you at the bridal workshop next week. If you want more info on the event feel free to get in touch.
P.S The event is FREE so you have no excuse 😉
