Summer is officially here! Since bikini season can be rather revealing, we were happy to find Lauren Conrad’s “Get Fit Summer Bootcamp“. It is really hard to stay motivated when the weather is hot and humid. Thankfully, this step by step guide provides workout ideas, a sensible diet plan, and motivating tips to help keep you on track!
It’s always easier to stick to a healthy lifestyle change if you can get your friends and family to join in with you! Call your girlfriends and take a spin class together or grab your sweetie and go for a hike. Chances are, enlisting the company of others will make your workouts more consistent and enjoyable!
Committing to a few, simple goals can make a world of difference: drink more water, eat three pieces of fruit a day, do 50 squats while you are watching your favorite show…every little bit counts!
What is your summer fitness plan?
Why? Because the idea of pre-burning in anticipation of Halloween isn’t a bad idea!
I absolutely LOVE “The Cut” by New York magazine. I just read Rebecca Harrington’s piece about testing Madonna’s “draconian fitness and nutritional regime” and laughed the entire time. She endured ten days of tofu and torture to enlighten those of us who don’t have the stamina (or the stomach) for such intensity. Read it for yourself here.
Madonna may have had a nip and tuck BUT, for 54, she has also passed on a cupcake or two. I am serious that when I read Gwyneth Paltrow’s blog “Goop”, I often fantasize about what size and shape I’d be in if I ate the bird food she does and worked out for 2 hours a day with Tracy Anderson. I would probably be the best version of myself (physically speaking, anyway) but at what COST? Could I sacrifice a summer filled with ice cream, pizza and chips and salsa?
I think we both know the answer to that question….
What about you?
