6. Get it over with
The lack of sunlight can be very demotivating. Don’t wait until the afternoon to get your workout in. If you have a house full of extended family try to get up a little earlier and pop to the gym before they rise. Not allowing your routine to be knocked off kilter is something you need to be very disciplined about.Screen Shot 2014-12-04 at 22.34.26
7. Cook it yourself
One easy way to keep your nutritional intake in line is to make everything yourself. While this might be a very labour intensive thing to do, the reward is far greater than you will ever know. The secret ingredients in many of these ready made meals are far from healthy and don’t help your cause for a fitter you.Screen Shot 2014-12-04 at 22.38.41

9. Eat what you want
If you are not willing to give up on all the treats that come with this time of year there are two things you need to know to keep on top of your wedding ready body. Firstly, don’t go over board. Keep your portions small and discipline yourself to only allow the bear minimum in order to get your kicks. No need to have 4 roast potatoes when 1 will do the trick of satisfying your watering taste buds. Secondly you will need to work harder in the gym to counter balance the massive increase of energy you are taking in. It’s simple maths, if you eat more than you burn, it will be stored as fat.Screen Shot 2014-12-04 at 22.43.12
