Letter from Lauren: June Shape Up

Letter from Lauren: June Shape Up
I recently read a headline on the cover of a fitness magazine that said, “It’s June, people! No more procrastinating!” Seeing as the editorial theme this month on LaurenConrad.com is Shape Up, this headline really resonated with me. June is crunch time. It’s the first month of summer, and it is the time to get in shape for bikini season. Hemlines are already getting shorter, and the weather is quickly getting warmer. Getting in shape is serious business and the clock is ticking. Just like the headline said…no more procrastinating, ladies.

Since I’ve already shared my 2013 Bikini Boot Camp Plan with all of you last month, in the next few weeks I will be checking in to see how you are doing with the rules and guidelines I laid out. Additionally, this month my team and I will be sharing fitness tips from the lovely ladies at Tone It Up, teaching you about healthy ingredient swaps, and blogging about a few foods you need in your diet now. For those of you who are already on the road to your beach-ready body, look out for my swimsuit guide and my post titled Style or Store: The June Edit, where I will curate my closet for this month. We have so many exciting features coming up that I know you will all love. Stay tuned and enjoy!

If there are any fitness or health topics you would like to see covered this month, leave them in the comments below.

XO Lauren

    I’d love to see pictures of YOU working out! At the gym, beach, with a friend, taking a class, etc! :) http://dreamliveandrepeat.blogspot.com/

    Any advice would be lovely and really encouraging :) But I think it would be cool if you could do a post on how to exercise indoors (I live In Australia and it’s almost winter and rainy weather season here!)

    Thank you for the sweet words and advice Lauren! <3

    This is great! I have been making lots of progress with my diet/fitness goals but I still have a long way to go. Could you cover how to eat clean on a budget? I know that for me, and others I know, that eating clean has really added up at the grocery store which is hard when you are trying to stay on budget!


  • Kellie Norton

    Yay! I’m so excited! Still working hard on your bikini boot camp, it’s tough but totally worth it! Excited to see the end results :-)


  • Helen

  • Paulina Mo

    I think a lot of girls (including myself!) would love to know some snacks/recipes that can fill you up without adding a lot of bloat, as well as summer healthy meals that can be cooked on Sunday and enjoyed during the week!

    Hey LC,
    When we’re going the bikini boot camp do you suggest we just pick out the recipes we want to make off your website and then go grocery shopping? Every time I go to make one of your recipes I’m always missing a few ingredients :( I don’t have easy access to the store though (broke college girl with no car) so when I do go I get like everything I can!

    Hey guys!

    I’d love to see tips on eating healthy and exercising while vacationing or being busy. Everyone’s schedules tend to get a little more hectic during the summer months and it’d be cool to have some tips to stay on track even when you’re not at home or sometimes don’t have time to prepare an entire meal.

  • Rebecca H

    I would love to see a post on motivation tips! I was super into working out and eating healthy a while back, and lost a bunch of weight back then! But of course, life intervened and I lost my motivation and willpower! I need some help getting it back, please!

    I am loving this post had to sign up and get moving on my own!

  • My Style Diary

    This is great! I would love to see some more motivational posts. :)

    Hi Abby! We like to plan out our menus for the week, make a list of ingredients, and then hit the grocery store (or farmers market!). It takes a little extra prep time, but makes things easier later on.

    I always crave salty, savory foods. I’ve heard if you’re craving something specific, sometimes it may mean you’re missing certain nutrients in your diet. I think it would be cool to learn about that and how to curb your cravings or learn how to make some diet friendly salty snacks.

  • NidLid

    I’d love to see workout tips for people who get bored with exercising easily, please!

    and I would love it if you guys checked out my fashion/beauty blog! :)

  • Paige M

    Replacements for ice cream and cold, summer treats!

  • Kylee Kozisek

    I love everything Lauren blogs about. She made my top favorite blogs!


  • KR

    I have to socialize a lot for my job, which usually involves getting drinks. Do you have any suggestions on lower calorie drinks?

  • Sofia Alleyne

    I would love to see a post about some ways to motivate yourself to exercise :)
