Melissa Rycroft‘s wedding is only a couple weeks away, which means she is kicking her workout routine into high gear. Although she says that her time on Dancing With The Stars got her off to a good start, she still wanted to continue sculpting that petite body of hers. Keep reading for more details…
â€œI was lucky that I had a jump start,â€ Melissa said of her time on DWTS. â€œI figured, â€˜This is perfect. Iâ€™m really in peak physical condition.â€™ I felt like I looked better than I did when I was a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader as a teenager!â€
She added that she tries to work out at home for about an hour and a half, four days a week. Why no gym? Melissa says that it intimidates her and it’s too hard to get motivated to leave. â€œI had my dress sized to my body, not to a size I wanted to be. But every bride wants to look like a toned version of themselves,â€ she continued. â€œIâ€™ve definitely upped the workouts and changed them to focus on my arms and shoulders, because thatâ€™s what shows in a wedding dress â€” not so much your legs.â€
Of course, on top of the workouts, Melissa is trying to watch what she eats. â€œIâ€™m not a good dieter in the sense that I canâ€™t completely cut out carbs or fats,â€ she says. â€œSo weâ€™ve cut fat, sugar and sodium in moderation. I just eat healthy. But if my body craves something, I give in to it. If I donâ€™t, Iâ€™ll binge.â€
