I don’t know if any you can relate, but this summer I lost my fitness “mojo.” Between a lot of travel, weekends at the lake and a lack of structured daily schedule, I feel off the band wagon of clean eating and regular intense workouts…and by the time school started last month, I was feeling pretty unhappy with where my body and energy were at. 

There’s nothing like a the feeling of a new school year and season to feel like a fresh beginning, so with my kiddos back in school and a more structured schedule in place, I decided to make some changes and re-engage my mind and body to get back on the fitness and health train! 

One month later, I am already feeling much better! Although I still have a ways to go to hit my goals, I credit three things to helping motivate me to get my butt back into shape.

1. Stylish, functional workout clothes. It may sound frivolous or superficial, but what you wear to exercise affects your overall view of yourself and thus can impact your workout! I am loving my Albion Fit clothes that are just that…stylish and functional.

As a mom on the go, I don’t always have time to shower right after I work out, and often run errands and/or carpool in my fitness clothes. I love the comfort and mid-length of Albion Fit’s Sprinter Shorts and this Fitness Romper just might be the the best invention ever! I wear my romper post workout or just as a cute weekend “athleisure” look with sneakers. If you have been reading this blog for a while, you know Albion Fit is one of my favorite, go-to brands for flattering fitness and swim wear. The quality and fit are amazing! I am excited to team up with Albion Fit to giveaway THREE $75 Albion Fit gift cards. Be sure to scroll to the end of this post to find out how to enter!

2. Orange Theory Fitness. I have heard the best things about Orange Theory Fitness over the past year and know so many women who credit this workout for major changes to their bodies. When a new Orange Theory recently opened near my home, I had to try it! All I can say is that this intense 60-minute workout is addicting! It’s fun, always different and never boring and pushes me to work harder than I think I can each and every class. I hit Orange Theory hard starting about three weeks before traveling to New York Fashion Week, went 4-5 times a week and started to see results by week three. My energy levels have been up and I feel stronger than I have in months!

If you live near the Sugarloaf/Duluth area of North Atlanta, I would love for you to come join me for a complementary class  at the new Duluth location! Simply email me at lauren@editbylauren.com to set a time. {The owners of my gym also own a location in Peachtree Corners and in Hamilton Mill/Buford, so I can also set you up at one of these locations if that is more convenient for you!}

3. Advocare products. Last but not least, a good friend with one of the strongest physiques I know, hooked me up with some amazing Advocare products to help me jumpstart my new fitness regime. I have starting to incorporate some of these products into my daily routine and am loving them and totally feeling a difference in my energy levels while working out and throughout the day. I’ll be posting more about these products soon, but the two products I currently cannot live without are Spark and Catalyst. The first thing I do when I wake up each morning {even before my coffee!} is drink a glass of Spark mixed into water, and take three Catalyst tablets. Spark tastes SO good and so refreshing that I look forward to it each morning. {My favorite flavors are grape, cheery and lime aid.} It gives me so much energy! Catalyst is an amino acid supplement  that helps define muscle tone, muscle repair and also helps with energy. These two are a power combo and I repeat this combo each afternoon as well. For more info, feel free to email me at lauren@editbylauren.com or reach out to my friend, Alex Woolverton, who is a wealth of knowledge and super helpful! Tell her Lauren referred you. πŸ™‚
