Are Weddings Hazardous to Your Health?
Fall seems to be even more popular than summer now for weddings and while they're a fun and happy occasion, sometimes they can be hazardous to your health.
Dancing the night away in high heels isn't the best idea. Especially if the shoes are new and you haven't had time to break them in yet. Blisters are no fun and dancing in bare feet is kinda icky. You don't realize just how much you use your feet until they're throbbing with blisters. If you're wearing more formal shoes for the ceremony, keep a change of shoes in the car. Dr. Scholl's Fast Flats are a great option. They're cute, come in different colors and even fold in half to fit in the cute bag that comes with them.
This is especially bad if you're the bride, bridesmaid or personal attendant. You're not sleeping, you're stressed, maybe you have to travel, or you're drinking more than usual. Try to get enough sleep and if you have to, take a nap. Make sure you're well organized and packed for your journey so you aren't stressed about the trip and try not to drink too much. Make sure you also get your workouts in. That alone can boost your immune system.
Cheating on Your Diet
I did this. Ugh. You work so hard to lose weight for the wedding to look great in that dress you bought and then you end up eating like a horse or not getting proper nutrition. Wedding cake and buffets are so good, but just because there's no nutrition label doesn't mean that it's calorie free. If you know you're going to be hungry, pack some celery and peanut butter, energy bars, apples, granola, nuts or any other healthy snacks you like so you don't end up stuffing your face and making yourself miserable later. Alcohol also messes up your metabolism so make sure you drink enough water.
