It is officially summer in ONE week! YAY! Although it is our favorite time of year it can be easy to let our fitness and nutrition slide with all the beach days, barbecues, and brunches. Now more than ever we need to be on top of our health habits and fitness routines so we can shine in our bikinis all summer long. Here are the ways I plan on shedding pounds this season.
The Prep Steps
✔️Prep Your Meals
✔️Plan your daily sweat
✔️Make time for YOU
Set your goals for the summer and write them down! Take a few minutes today to journal and set your intentions for the next couple of weeks.
How do you want to feel at the end of it? What changes are you hoping to see? This summer is about WAY more than just working out, losing weight, and eating better than you were before. It’s about learning to show your gorgeous body all the love it deserves and feeling confident from the inside out so you can #liveguiltless.
The Key Details…
Aside from the big-picture stuff, you are going to want to start with your before pics and your gear!!
Go to the journaling section of the LSF app and upload your transformation photos! Babe, it is soo key to keep track of your progress. I know it’s hard to feel “good” taking them, but the scale is an unreliable way to mark your results. Plus, tracking your progress allows you to celebrate all the wins throughout the summer, no matter how big or small. Focus on how you LOOK as you build muscle and lose fat.
See the diff between the two “before” pics below? (They’re both me!) Lighting, clothes, and getting that smiling face in there make a big difference.
I get taking “befores” can be tough and smiling can be hard, but this is the beginning of something major for you, be happy!
✔️Your LSF Workout Kit
Finally, get your gear together now so it’s easy AF to get up and get at it Monday! I have a cute basket I keep in my workout space, so it’s ready whenever I need it, and easy to put away. My go-to’s for my LSF Fit Kit…
- Love Sweat Fitness – the APP!
- Day Drinking Water Bottle
- Resistance Booty Bands
- My fave exercise mat
- Hand weights for when I am looking for the extra intensity (totally optional, but nice to have!)
