Back to the Bootcamp + Fitness Favs

Confession :: My abs don't currently look like they do in these pics that were taken in February. When I shot these pics, I was one month into the FASTer Way to Fat Loss bootcamp and feeling great! I got off track this Spring, took a break from the bootcamp and now I fully regret it!

You see, the FASTer Way is a program that delivers results while allowing me enjoy life and food! After too many carefree days eating and drinking this Summer by the pool, lake and beach, I am ready and excited to get my booty back in gear and my abs on point again!

If you are feeling like me, I would LOVE for you to join me for the next round of the FASTer Way that kicks off with prep week next Monday, July 10th. You can read my post all about the bootcamp where I answer a lot of FAQ's here. And you can check out the program online here.

If you decide to jump in, let me know. I would love to journey with you and answer any questions along the way. Feel free to email me anytime at lauren@editbylauren.com.

And because cute fitness clothes always help me get and stay motivated, here are some current goodies to check out ::

Here's to a better bathing suit body for the second half of summer!

Like many, daily workouts keep me feeling my best both physically and mentally. But let's face it ladies, when you are on your period, it's often difficult to feel motivated and comfortable exercising. I learned over the years that making myself get out to move and break a sweat during my "time of the month" ultimately makes me feel so much better!

Thanks to the new U by Kotex® FITNESS* products, keeping your workout regime up during your period has never been easier. I personally love that the U by Kotex® FITNESS* tampons come with a plastic FITPAK that is durable, compact and discreet...perfect for stashing in your purse or gym bag. U by Kotex® has also just released FITNESS* Liners and Ultra Thin Pads that move with your body as you exercise. Learn more info about all of these products here.

Here are a few other of my tried-and-true tips for exercising and feeling your best through your period ::

1. Wear stretchy, high-waisted leggings like this pair. I find that high-waisted pants best "slim" the bloat and keep me feeling more confident working out! 

2. Drink as much water as possible and stay away from salty foods to help battle the bloat.

3. Even if you feel tired and crampy, try to take at least take a walk. Movement really helps everything!

4. Listen to your body. If you are tired and need a nap or an early bed time, get the extra zzzz's!

5. Yoga, pilates and barre workouts are my favorite during my period since they are low-impact and involve lots of stretching, which helps relieve body aches.

Shop my fitness gear below. These leggings really are amazingly comfy and flattering, and this tank is a new favorite...I have it in two colors!

Friday Five

Casual Outfit Inspiration, Accessories, Fitness, Spring/Summer StyleLaurenComment

Happy Friday! Here are five things I am loving this week ::

The above pic represents two favorite things ::

1. This lipstick. Mac Lipstick and Lipglass in "Girl About Town" is gorgeous shade of hot pink {which I am wearing in the pic above}. This was my go-to shade last spring and summer. I was so excited to bring it back out again this week! This is one of Mac's best selling colors and a truly universally flattering shade. I love having it in both the lipstick and in the lip glass. Sometimes I layer them together, and I often just wear the gloss for a slightly more sheer look. Also, in case you missed yesterday's blog post, I am sharing all the products in my makeup bag and what I use for my daily routine.

2. This drink. The Starbucks Iced Green Tea Latte with Coconut Milk is my new favorite drink at Starbucks. It's so delish and good for you. I honestly don't know how I just learned about this drink. One scoop of Matcha power has 10x the caffeine of a cup of green tea, so this drink is loaded with caffeine and detoxifying nutrients!

3. This ruffled tee. Okay, I lied...there were actually three items I wanted to feature in the first pic! This little ruffled tee is under-$50, super soft and absolulty adorable. I love that it dresses up any jeans or shorts outfit with no extra effort! It comes in several colors, too...and is bound to sell out soon so snag it while you can. I am ordering the solid white one today!

4. This glam dress. I tried this dress on the week before last and posted it to Snapchat and Instagram. I have received so many questions about it, so I decided I should share here, as well. This dress is just so gorgeous and fun for any fancy occasion, and perfect if you have an upcoming evening wedding. As far as sizing, I am wearing a US 4. I find that Missguided tends to run small, so I recommend sizing up. Thankfully this dress has lots of stretch, which makes it comfortable and easy to move in.

5. This watch. Confession :: My hubby gave me this Rosegold Apple Watch for Christmas and it sat on my desk until I finally set it up two weeks ago! And now I can't believe I waited so long! I'm loving all of it's functionality and it's sleek design, and am going to order a second band in either black or navy to swap out. It's currently on sale this week on Amazon, too!

6. These shoes. I know, I know...I call this weekly post the "Friday FIVE" but I just had to add those shoes because they are SO good and SUCH a great price!! This is the "it" style sandal of the season, and you've probably seen the over-$100 "designer" version of it floating around! This Steve Madden pair comes in three colors and is under $60! They are super comfy, too, and run true to size.

Stylishly yours,
