Some soon-to-be brides like to pre-pamper themselves leading the big day others don’t give a f*ck.
I thought I’d be one of the IDGAF brides and I’ve soon discovered well, I’m not!
So 4 months until the big day so what else have I done besides spend a lot of money?
#1 Naturopath: You all read about my visit to Nat the Naturopath in my last post..
Nat’s put me on:
Metagenics Lymphatox: This is a lymph node detox – to clear all the build up of crap in my body basically.
BioCeuticals Ultra Muscleze (Magnsium): To help stress, improve sleep, muscle soreness, cramping – what doesn’t magnesium do!!!
BioCeuticals Alpha EFA: My body is really dry – drier then it should be for a 25 year old who drinks 2-3L of water a day. So this is an indication my cells may not be holding fluid – like a dried up sultana really! These will help blood circulation and improve my skin.
I’m also taking:
7.2 Greens powder or caps: To compliment my green leafy veggie intake – I always just feel good after a greens drink knowing I’m getting in some more nutrients.
#2 Oxy Facials: Cailin from CAS beauty is my homegirl on this one – Using Intrceuticals.
Oxygen facial is a treatment used to infuse serums rich in vitamins and antioxidants deep into the skin – it’ll hydrate, plump and rid any fine lines.
One oxygen facial a month for now but this will be amped up leading into the wedding – so stay tuned.
#3 Skin Check: One of my lovely besties works at a day spa – Indera – in which a Dr comes out once a month to do skin checks and mole removal – I thought pre wedding would be a good time because a) Matt told me I have to, b) its been 10 years since I’ve last had them checked and c) if anything needs removing it has 4 months to heal. (I get this done tomorrow and I’m slightly nervous!)
#4 Water Intake: I was slack with this the last couple of months – only getting 2L average in a day – seems like a lot to some but I usually get in minimum 3L *stops to take skull water…. I find having pop top lids helps a ridiculous amount as does needing to get in my magnesium (which is a powder mixed with water) so I’m now back averaging 3L minimum a day.
#5 Pintrest: If you are getting married and haven’t discovered this yet – you’re welcome. Mate you don’t even need to be getting married – renovations, recipes, kids rooms, cocktails – you name it Pintrest has it. If my actual wedding turns out half as good as my Pintrest album it’s going to be bloody brilliant!
#6 Training routine: 3 times a week – main focuses on posture and staying lean by doing x1 lower body sesh, x1 upper body sesh and x1 full body sesh – each with strength focus, core and yoga at the end – maybe a little #hardio if I don’t talk myself out of it! One piece of advice here brides to be – DO PILATES AND LIFT HEAVY.
#7 Eating: Yeah this hasn’t change much yet – I was due for my period yesterday and ate 3 Freddo’s (one after breakfast, lunch then dinner) I also had a bag of Malteasers for lunch on Sunday – Judge me I don’t care. When I’m on I’m on but for now I’m wallowing in self-pity. #human
Things I’ve discovered about weddings:
-Destination Weddings aren’t cheap like they are made out to be.
-Whatever you want tell Matt it cost 50% of that price and buy it anyways.
-I’m already getting upset that Bane and Austin can’t come.
-People are opinionated and unfiltered when it comes to weddings – never take it to heart!
Stay Strong & Stretch,
