Honestly, no. Just keep doing what you’re doing.

Try to cut salt out of your diet and make sure you’re drinking plenty of water. That’s about it. You’re not going to make any visible changes in one week.

Ya unfortunately a week won’t do much for tonning.  I second what the PP said, cut out salt and anything else that makes you retain water and bloat.

Have a fabulous wedding!

@Westvillebride:  Push ups. A lot of them. I don’t know if it will tone your stomach that quickly (you can try planks and see) but you can see a difference in your arms pretty quickly. If you can’t do that many at once. break it up and do them a bunch of times a day.

Try to limit carbs and salt to prevent bloating? I’m also a massive fan of kettlebells to firm up arms.

PS. When I first read this thread, I looked at your avatar and thought ‘she doesn’t need to tone up’…

D’oh!

@Button:  me too!!!! LOL

A week isn’t going to do much. It takes months to build muscle.

I agree with other bees, drink lots of water, limit salt intake should help your body lose a little bit of water weight. I think with one week left that’s all you can do… :/ and don’t stress eat! I know how hectic that time is, have a good week!

I think it’s possible to see a difference in a week- but generally that is for people when they have a sedentary lifestyle & poor diet, and change to a good diet & exercise. It sounds like you’re mostly on the right track.

I lose a lot of water weight & therefore some of my “bloat” when I go really low carb & drink a lot of water. As for stomach, my sister swears by “flexing her stomach” while she does cardio or other exercise. I’ve never tried it, but she rarely works out, just had a baby and practically has a 6-pack, so it’s worth a try lol.

Oh, also, my Future Mother-In-Law swears Real Salt doesn’t make her bloat, but regular salt does. I’ve never tested this theory (I use Real Salt regularly, though), but it may be worth using as your salt (while still limiting salt intake) for the week.
