Taryne's Secrets to Getting in Wedding Shape:

1. Eat!

"It sounds crazy, but with as much working out as you do when you're planning a wedding and doing intense workouts, you need to eat healthy and balanced meals!"

2. Start your day right

"Always eat breakfast and make sure to include protein. I had scrambled eggs and oatmeal for breakfast most days."

3. Set small goals

"I made small goals for each workout -- one more push-up...one more squat.... If you give yourself small, realistic goals, you'll achieve them. Start out small; then challenge yourself even more. You'll be so proud of yourself when your wedding day comes -- you'll have achieved so much more because you believed in yourself. And that, in turn, brings out even more confidence."

4. Believe in yourself

"Think of your wedding day as the final goal. Imagine how you want to look -- and you'll get there!"

5. Just get started!

"The best advice I ever heard was, 'It doesn't get easier; you get better at it.' This is so true. Workouts are always a challenge, but you get stronger and stronger, and you can accomplish more and more with each one!"
