Fergie is Running to the Altar

One of the first things a woman thinks after she gets engaged is what she wants to look like on her wedding day. Many women realize that they need to start exercising and dieting in order to achieve the look they want for there special day. Some women even go so far as buying their wedding dresses in smaller dress sizes so that they have to lose weight to fit into it!

Many women, such as the celebrity singer Fergie, try to lose weight for the wedding by taking up running or walking. Many celebrities are seen dropping ten or even twenty pounds in weeks but the thing that many people don't think about is that these people have personal trainers spending countless hours with them to ensure they are exercising properly and getting the correct nutrition so that they can lose weight without hurting themselves in the process.

For all of us who cannot afford to have a personal trainer wake us up every morning to whip us into shape, here are some hints on how to start an exercise regime that won't leave you limping after a week.

1. Don't do too much too fast

It is important to gradually ease your body into an exercise program. If you are working off of a base in which you don't work out at all then start off with running 3 times a week for 20 minutes.

2. Get the right equipment

If you don't exercise much to begin with then it is probably time for you to invest in a new pair of running shoes. It is important to have one pair of shoes that are dedicated to running and one pair that you use for other everyday activities.

3. Take care of your feet

Make sure you are wearing the correct footwear when exercising. If you are wearing shoes that are too tight, or that don't give you the right support then you can get a number of foot aliments that will prohibit you from continuing your "race to the altar".

Everyone wants to look good on their wedding day. Running is a great exercise to shed a few pounds, as long as you ease yourself into it and take care of your feet and body.
