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.
SOOO—- there you have it! Easy, quick little tips to help you stay on track for 2016.
