Read our June Letter from Lauren on and learn about our theme for the month!

Welcome to June everyone! The end of spring is in sight and we’re headed full speed into the summer months. There’s nothing like knowing that bikini season is around the corner to kick your health and fitness routine into gear. While eating healthy and staying active are a regular part of my lifestyle, summer always inspires me to look and feel like the best version of myself. That’s why I’ve deemed this month’s theme Get in Shape. This month on, my editors and I will be focusing on how to better take care of our bodies as well as sharing our favorite workouts and healthy recipes. There’s a lot to look forward to!

First up on the calendar we can’t forget about Father’s Day! We have a special gift guide in store, as well as a festive DIY Bloody Mary bar that will revolutionize your Sunday brunch. Since summer officially kicks off on the 20th, we’re focusing on getting bikini ready with our favorite workouts. That includes anywhere abs, a killer booty workout, and a stair workout that will have you sweating in no time. Since working out is only half of the equation, be sure to check back this month for healthy cooking tips like which oils you should be cooking with and how to dry your own fresh herbs. I’m already giving too much away, but you’ll want to stay tuned for summer fashion tips and much more! I hope you’re as excited as I am…

What would you like to see covered on this month?

Be sure to let my team and I know in the comments!

    I’d love some motivation for any of us who may be in need of getting in shape and losing weight but aren’t able to do a lot of physical activity due to injury. I personally hurt my back in November, and I’ve been trying to get into a workout habit. It’s hard when you see how little you can do without agitating a problem area. Would love to lose 30 pounds before the fall, but at this rate it seems impossible.

    • Hi Shannon,
      Are you able to walk? I had major surgery last September and it really helped me to stay in shape while I couldn’t do anything else (not even yoga). I started with shorter walks and each day I increased the distance a little bit more until I was walking 5km each day. Hope that helps! x

  • Snacking is my kriptonite, so I have set myself the goal to not have anything that is bought from a shop and to make my own snacks. I would love some ideas of things I can make and take to the office, whether they are sweet or savoury! Thanks!

    Another interesting topic I think you should cover is girls and protein shakes! There is so many conflicting stories about if you should or shouldn´t use them, what do you think?

  • Yes to getting in shape this month! I am doing a step challenge with work and am finishing up a Diet Bet with friends. It helps so much to have accountability partners!

  • Jacqalyn

    Can you share couples workouts? Something you can do with your S.O. I think that’d be neat. Thanks!
