Brittany's Secrets to Getting in Wedding Shape:

1. Don't Go Home First

“I would bring my clothes to work and change right after the workday was over. It didn't give me a chance to come home and get distracted or become lazy."

2. Avoid Foods That Can Undo Workouts

“I really started to watch my diet -- not to lose weight, but because after all of those hard gym sessions, I would never want to waste that energy of a great workout on something like a hamburger or French fries. They just didn't taste as good as the feeling of getting in shape."

3. Understand the Benefits

“I was able to work out harder than I'd ever worked out before in my life. I started to gain a lot of strength as well, starting off with five-pound dumbbells and moving to eight pounds in just a couple of months. Besides the physical results, there were mental changes too. I was able to finally feel like I had a fitness plan that worked for me, and I actually came to enjoy working out and felt sexy in sneakers, not just heels."
