OMG WE’RE LATE.
That’s okay dont panic. DON’T. PANIC.
Have I ever told you I’m a panicky person? Well now you know. OKAY, focus Drea. IT’S BIKINI BODY GUIDE TIME :|

“Totttttessss should be hardcore dieting & working out by now but guess what I’m not and yolo.”
This is the contradicting motto I live by daily.. anyone else? But hey, we still have liiiiike a month and a half-ish {lucky us Canadians} so let’s not go into a full blown panic attack and just eat healthy. That sounds good right? Slowwwwly put down the cayenne lemonade gorgeous, we don’t need it.

Bikini Body Guide 2.0

*Note: Toss the scale. Seriously. Toss it.*

 Track It.

First off, let’s get our calculators out. Click here and input your age, gender, height, weight, activity level and goal.
It’ll give you your daily total caloric intake broken down into carbs, protein and fat {the 3 types of macro-nutrients that make up food}. Next, click 4 meals and normal protein. When you start lifting heavier, increase the protein to high protein.

Now boys & girls meet ‘My Fitness Pal’. I use this damn app EVERY day {have I told you I’m OCD????}.

x Download the app
x Create an account
x Click MORE and then click on GOALS.
x Enter those  macro calculations.
x DONE!
The app will calculate your projected number of calories for you to achieve your goal weight in an acceptable amount of time.
Oh PS, add me! EwanishanA

MOVE.

Just freaking move. I don’t care if you’re running, walking, galloping, twerking or lunging your way down the street just get moving. I promise you, that walk will soon be quicker and may even turn into a jog. The more you move = the more you burn & the more amazing you feel.
Aim for 5 workouts a week but if anything just make sure you’re active for atleast 30 minutes a day.

LISTEN TO YOUR BODY!! If you need a day off, take one. Walk outside or do some light stretches. Too much stress can increase cortisol levels in the body making it hard to lose weight.

If you’re wanting a bit more I HIGHLY recommend The Skinny Confidential Bombshell Body Guide, Tone It Up’s Bikini Body Series & lastly, A Bikini A Day’s Workout Challenge with SELF Magazine.

All of these girls have unreal bods and their programs are SO reasonable. Twenty minutes a day? I’m sure I can squeeze that in between my Real Houswives epi’s.

LEAN. CLEAN. GREEN.

It’s an over used mantra that is entirely correct. LEAN protein, CLEAN unprocessed foods & GREEN veggies. Here is my clean eating plan that I explained last year but seriously still stick to:

 

  • Breakfast

    • Try a quinoa oatmeal with berries and chia seeds to fuel yourself in the morning
    • On the weekend whip up egg whites and turkey bacon
    • Protein Pancakes for Sundays are essential ;)
  • Lunch

    • If you’re gunna have carbs, have them at lunch. Earlier in the day gives your body time to use up those nutrients throughout the day.
    • Whole wheat turkey wrap is a great choice.
    • Sushi? Opt for brown rice and no mayo. Also start eating sashimi with soya sauce and ginger {trust me}.
  • Snack

    • Fruit. Apples, berries, oranges, whatever you want.
    • PB on Caramel Rice Cake {keep the PB thin, add some banana on top}
    • Okay, confession. I love Jello Snack Packs when I need a little pick me up…. #secret
    • A handful of Goldfish. 3 Cheese style. If you’re dying for chips chow down on these little critters instead.
  • Dinner

    • Now is the time to keep it lean, green and carb-less {if you can}.
    • Salad and protein all da way. Get it in ya.
    • Water, water, water, water, water.

 

To kick start your bikini body program I suggest my Let’s Cleanse guide. ALSO, if you’re on the run and have to eat at a fast food retarurant, DON’T PANIC. Check out my Babe Friendly Fast Food post. 

Scope out my ‘Health’ + ‘Recipes’  sections for tons of recipes.

Quickie:

Weeks 1-4: Hit the gym and fuel yourself
Week 5: Slowly decrease your caloric intake
Week 6-11: Pump up the cardio and lower the weight
