It's Wedding Wednesday...Shape Up For The Big Day Part 3

In continuing with our "Shape Up For The Big Day" series, we have reached the third month. Please feel free to bookmark these entries so that you may refer to them later as I realize we are not doing this on a monthly basis and in reality if you have started the program would not have gotten to this point yet.

If you missed Part 1, you can check it out here: http://etherealbeginnings.blogspot.com/2010/06/its-wedding-wednesdayshape-up-for-big.html

Month 3

This is usually when people start to give up. Get out your diary, and flip back to your first entry. Remind yourself why you are doing this. Also, flip ahead in your calendar and check how quickly your wedding day is approaching: Aren't you glad you started exercising weeks ago? Weigh yourself and take your measurements again. Are you making progress? Even if you haven't lost weight, you should see some results in your muscle tone. Good to know: Muscle weighs more than fat, so you might have gained a few pounds, but you've most likely turned some of that fat into muscle.

Weeks #9 and #10

  • 40 minutes of aerobic activity at least three times a week
  • 3 sets of 10 stomach crunches
  • 2 sets of 10 push-ups
  • 1 set of 10 squats

Weeks #11 and #12

  • 40 minutes of aerobic activity at least three times a week
  • 3 sets of 10 stomach crunches
  • 3 sets of 10 push-ups
  • 2 sets of 10 squats
  • 2 sets of 10 bicep curls
  • 2 sets of 10 tricep curls

Be sure to use your hand weights when doing your bicep and tricep curls.

If any of you have started the program. Let me know how you are doing. If you have any queries, please feel free to leave them in the comment section as well or you may message me through my shop at http://www.etherealbeginnings.etsy.com/.

Thanks so much for blogging in. See you tomorrow for Twilight Thursday.

Cheers and Blessings,
