Pre-Wedding Shape Up Tips from Jessica Biel

There isn’t anything you can do to hide love and the bling it brings into your life. No matter how our fave celebrity couples try to keep romance on the down low, that significant bauble is pretty darn hard not to notice!

Even after months from getting engaged, Hollywood power couple Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake have been playing it low key with their engagement last year.

Much of our congratulatory toast to the super fit couple who seem to just have missed out on letting tinsel town get a glimpse of the engagement rock on 30 year old Jessica Biel.

It was only on a recent errand run in LA that Biel officially flashed us the big blinding bauble and shared her secret to staying in shape before she walks down the aisle with her hottie hubbie to be.

Jessica reveals it is the adventure of a work out that keeps her from getting bored with a routine. Discovering ways to enjoy the outdoors  and incorporating physical activity on any day at the park such as biking or following a short hiking trail does wonders.

Not everyone is an athlete but training for strength will definitely give you some to-die-for muscles in all the right places and makes your body look leaner. Biel opts for hardcore strength training exercises such as walking lunges that can get those glutes in tip top shape. Light weights and more reps is the key to her lean frame.

And after all that, this super body actress alternates her work out with yoga for muscle lengthening and pairs it with a sensible diet of  healthy fresh food. Breakfast with complex carbs, fruits for munchies, and good ole fish and lots of greens for a light dinner.  But of course, everyone has to have those days when you just got to have some guilty indulgence. Biel believes in having a cheat day and that’s just one day when she can have anything her heart desires to keep the balance. Life sans such a day according to this hottie bride to be, can sometimes drive anyone to a nutty edge.
