Fitness Competitor Bride

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies!

Just wondering if any other brides here are fitness/figure competitors? I'm very torn as to exactly where I want my physique to be come wedding day in January. My next competition isn't until April so I should be nearing the end of my build cycle and preparing to start cutting down a few weeks after the wedding. While this may sound ideal as it basically means I can eat whatever I want while we're in Jamaica, I also find that I'm a bit on the puffy side at this phase in my training. I think I look my best about half-way through my leaning out phase, not too ripped and not puffy anymore, however we all know what happens when you go on vacation during a cutting phase, you can't handle your booze and eating anything heavy makes you sick. I'm thinking start my leaning out a month before the wedding and eat like a normal person for one week before we leave. Anyone with some experience on this?

I am a previous competitor.  I totally understand where you are coming from and personally my wedding and those pictures that I will have for eternity would be more important to me so I'd want to look better in those pictures and do what is needed to feel my best at that moment in life.  If need be, you can push our your next competition if you feel you are not ready or maybe you can build more for the following competition if you are unable to gain enough during this cycle since you would be cutting earlier than expected.  I think you could probably go a little easy on the cutting phase before the wedding and no be too strict so you will have some room to enjoy yourself on vacation without getting sick or regretting anything.  Then hit it hard when you are back since you will still have about 3 months to cut. 

 

Just think....is it more important for strangers to see you looking your best on stage....or is it more important for all your closest friends and family to see you looking your best on the most important day of your life?  Do you want to look your absolute best in your wedding dress and a bikini all week and in the thousands of pictures you will have from that amazing wedding vacation??

 

Do what feels right and what will make you the happiest!!

Tnaks sxcT,

that does put it inot perspective. April would have been the first competition where I really expected to place and I've gotten pretty caught up in that goal. But I only plan to get married once and I want to have the time of my life that week. I guess waiting for the next competition will only give me that much more time to get exactly where I want to be physically.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
