Oh, So You Stuffed Your Face on Thanksgiving? No Probs…Here’s Some Recovery Tips!

Lauryn Evarts is a fitness blogger, health blogger, fashion blogger, and diet blogger from Southern California.

Instead of feeling bad/guilty/pissed/annoyed in regards to the oh-so-f’ning-annoying holiday bloat, try nipping that shit in the bud. What’s done is done. A lot of you have e-mailed me concerned about the holidays. Look, it’s normal to overeat on Thanksgiving. Now it’s time to leave the pity party & take action. Leave the past in the past.

Ya get me ; )?

Here’s some tips/tricks to avoid those holiday LB’s:

1.} Water. Ya, ya, ya. You hear this all the time. There’s a reason it’s number one on the list. Drink it until you feel like you’re about to give birth.

2.} Light alcohol. Since you’ll most likely be drinking more than usu around the holidays, try to avoid it if there’s no celebrations going on. When you do end up drinking, stick to vodka/water, champs, & Pinot grigio [ duhhhh ].

3.} Motivate yourself. If you’re laying around like a slob & complaining, peel yourself from the coach & squeeze in an hour workout. Be productive/disciplined.

4.} Eat clean. Examples? Organic cold cuts, cottage cheese, low-carb bread, berries, any type of vegetable, hummus, black beans, quinoa, fresh soups, arugula salads, kale juice, sexy wheatgrass shots, chickpeas, avocado-anything, turkey roll-ups, sliced cucumber with light cheese, scrambled eggs, tuna fish, blah, blah. Pretty simple, since there’s tons of options!

5.} Green tea. People do not understand how freaking beneficial green tea is. I shoot for two cups a day. It speeds the metabolism, cleanses the system, & contains tons of lovely antioxidants. Bottoms up, sex kittens.

6.} Vitamins. Ok. So lately I have been trying to get my vitamins from food. Calcium, D3, B12, etc. can all be found in the food you’re eating. Why take a pill when you eat something delicious? Speaking of vitamins… try a B12 shot. I love these; find out why here. I recommend one a month.

7.} Tan. Because it just makes everything look better. Some people look best with light skin, if you’re one of those peeps- lucky you. Most people look better with a lil’ bit of spray. You can find tanning tips here.

8.} Kick up your workouts. Whatever you’re used to doing throughout the year, kick it up a notch. You’ll feel better & you’ll look better. No excuses!

9.} Stop projecting negativity. To look fab, you have to feel fab. Beating yourself up isn’t the answer. Changing the solution to your problem is.

10.} MyFitnessPal app. Now for the best tip evs…Get the app called MyFitnessPal; if you’re freaking about not going cray, cray this holiday season this is a real problem solver. It seriously, really, without a doubt keeps yo ass in check.

So. Stop feeling bad for yourself & change your tune. 

Because.no.one.else.is.going.to.do.it.for.you.

The 3-Day Juice Cleanse Challenge: Fitting Back into Your Bikini for Summer 2012

Lauryn Evarts talk juice cleansing and how to lose weight for Summer 2012.

Lauryn Evarts talks all about juice cleansing and juice detoxing.

Hi Dolls!

God knows everyone is looking for a quick, fast, easy way to jumpstart their metabolism. If done correctly this juice cleanse is amazing; not only will you drop actual poundage [ & some pesky water weight ], after completion constant cravings for sugary foods immediately subside. I have done this cleanse four times & it’s safe to say I’m in love [ two examples found here & here ].

Nourish your body & kick your metabolism into gear. All that time spent worrying about unwanted weight, could be spent actually doing something about it.

So…let’s get down to business. This is my challenge to YOU: 

1.) E-mail me at Lauryn@TheSkinnyConfidential.com for juicing instructions.

2.) Take the directions to your local juicer, Whole Foods, or blend/juice the ingredients at home.

3.) Have your juices ready to go by this Wednesday @ 8:30 AM [ the cleanse will go Wednesday 4/18 to Friday 4/20, so you're looking hot for Saturday ].

4.) Pre-plan three nights of protein + veggies for each night.

5.) Drink tons of water & green tea for the whole three days.

[ Examples of protein meals at night: organic ground turkey with salad, an egg white omelette filled with veggies, spaghetti squash with fresh chopped tomatoes, a fresh salad with tuna on top, scrambled eggs with sliced turkey, sliced chicken on grilled vegetables, etc. ]. My favorite pre-made cleanse can be found here.

I’ll be with you every step of the way, answering any questions/concerns. This cleanse is not just about weight loss. It’s about clear skin, fresh foods, & detoxing [ especially if you went to Coachella! ]. Let’s do this!

Frozen Gummy Bears

Lauryn Evarts talks with Tone It Up Ambassador, Tenley Molzahn from The Bachelor series.

I watched the movie Winter’s Bone [ a must see! ] this weekend. I was craving candy, so I bought some Trader Joe’s Gummy Bears [ they are made with real fruit & contain vegetable extracts; the regular ones have preservatives, so I would recommend the TJ's brand ] & popped them in the freezer. The purpose of this was to attain a chewy exterior, so I did not pop a million into my mouth at once [ that is super easy when they are so soft to bite ]. The trick worked perfectly- it satisfied my sweet tooth, too.

* Quick skinny tip: Although candy is small, it usually contains a lot of additives and sugar. Be smart when picking out your movie candy [ dark chocolate, almond M&M's, or frozen Gummy Bears are some excellent choices ].
