NEW YEAR, NEW ASS

There’s nothing like flattering workout clothes.

Especially when you feel like you ate too much figgy pudding, devoured a couple of slutty brownies, & drank one too many mimosas in the last two weeks of 2015 ( GUILTY ). Let’s just say I consumed more food/drinks than normal & things were feeling…well…a bit fluffier.

Needless to say, this month is all about TIGHTENING.

You know the drill: NEW YEAR, NEW ASS.

So what exactly do I mean? Well here’s a couple of tippity tips:

+ You guys know my workout schedule lately & on top of that, I’ve been also really utilizing a Pedometer ( what up, 10k steps a day! ). Sometimes I even use my iPhone as a Pedometer ( << there’s an App for that ).

+ Really up-ing my green drinks. You know this if you follow me on Snapchat. Typically I’ll  gulp down a green drink full of spinach, chard, baby kale, ginger, lemon, a handful of berries, & chia seeds once a day. And man oh man, it’s gnarlier than coffee. It gives you that ZING, ba da bing ba da boom.

+ All the other recipes I’ve been making are at-home/EASY & in TSC Bombshell Body Guide. Update by the way: I’m almost done with the meal plans so stay tuned!

+ Boring as hell, but I drink 80 ounces of water a day plus 20 sips ( OCD, lol ) the second I wake up.

+ The Skinny Confidential Detox Drink has been my best friend.

+ THE MORE FLATTERING THE WORKOUT CLOTHES THE BETTER. I’ve been living in this get up from Bandier. It’s this hot, cool site that sells all my favorite brands. These pants are by ALO & fit amazing. The top is so effortlessly chic that I even wear it out with friends. Flattering workout clothes make all the difference…especially in January.

+ Consuming more cage-free eggs & grass fed meats keep me feeling full longer. I love mixing a little Colman’s spicy mustard with both. It gives food a zing without the guilt.

+ TEA TEA TEA. Tea is kind of the best skinny tip ever. I down like 3 to 5 cups a day. Peppermint tea is my go-to before a meal. Apparently a reader ( hey Courtney! ) said that in Thailand the women carry peppermint in their purses to smell before a meal. It’s a natural appetite suppressant. After a meal I love apricot or green tropical tea. My best kept secret? Pu-erh tea!! After traveling to Beijing, China— I AM IN LOVE WITH IT. It’s fabulous for weight loss too.

Basically I’m a tea whore.

+ Healthy fats like avocado, raw coconut oil, grass fed butter, Ghee, & extra virgin olive oil are awesome in moderation. Pretty much don’t forget about your fats, they’re PHAT.

+ Typically I throw myself in to work in January BUT I stay off social media. It’s a distraction ( unless I’m using it for work ) & it takes away from building my brand. Plus I move more when I’m off FB & Instagram. Stay in your own lane!

+ Espresso & coffee in the morning help kick start my metabolism. This has always worked for me. I drink a bunch of water first, have my green drink, & then sip some coffee.

( You guys know adding cinnamon is my favorite ever because it balances out blood sugar! ).

+ MyFitnessPal is a FANTASTIC app for keeping yourself accountable. I highly recommend it to women who are looking for dramatic results. Out of all these tips, accountability with anything is what produces results. Don’t be a Delusional Danny. Get real with yourself.

+ A sunless tan never hurt a flea. A little color takes away 5 pounds in an instant.

    Happy new year Lauryn! Question: how do you drink so much liquid? I struggle to get more than a few glasses of water down a day and I’m always having to pee ? your detox drink itself looks huge. How do you fit the 20 sips, detox drink, coffee and possible breakfast in in the mornings? Does it take you hours? If I drink half a glass of water in one go I feel so full and bloted and gross for ages afterwards!

      Hi Maddy, yes I am literally always drinking something. It’s kind of insane, but I swear it’s worth it. I chug a giant glass of water first thing when I wake up. Drinking a ton of water actually reduces bloat, it makes you feel full which I like because I eat less! LOL!! Your body starts retaining water when it doesn’t think it’s going to get enough of it. Drinking a ton of water will keep unnatural bloat down, improve your skin, and is just overall better for your body! 80 ounces per day is perfect!

    Have you tried Bulletproof coffee?? I’ve heard a lot of people talking about it but I don’t know if it’s beneficial.

    I put post-its everywhere – on my walls, mirrors, in my bags, planner that say “Do something for yourself every day!” to remind me to take some ME time every day! Love this post. You should do more “What I Eat in a Day” posts!

      Thanks for the recommendation Christina, I will definitely share more of my daily meals and snacks. Do you follow me on Snapchat? I pretty much share everything I eat and drink on there + how to make some super simple snacks. xx

    Great tips, I have been a bit of a tea whore myself lately, my favorite being ruby red from Davids Tea. And I love that top, I can see why you where it out as well.

    Great tips! I’ve been upping my green juice intake as well. I always get Starbucks gift cards for the holidays but rather than using them on sugary drinks I buy the green juices they sell instead. Juices can be pretty pricey so this way I don’t feel bad about spending the money and I’m doing something beneficial for myself too. Also, laying off all sugar/processed foods/alcohol during the week and then indulging more on the weekends works best for me.

    Heyy Lauryn! I’ve been following your blog for a few years now, and I’m wondering: do you only get spray tans? Or you also get some sun to get tanned? Sorry for my bad english btw 😉 xx. Luana.

    Lauryn, I’m a tea whore too; have you ever tried Dandelion tea? OMG I feel like you’d love it. It detoxes the liver (which = weight/bloat loss). In the past I’ve lost water weight pretty quickly from drinking it up to 3x a day. I’m not having a totally sober Jan. but am doing more hot yoga x only drinking water w/ lemon x black coffee during the week… letting myself indulge in wine on weekends. So far so good! Xx
