Summer is beckoning and fast approaching. With summer comes swimsuits, shorts, dresses and the reminder that you’ve likely forgotten to tone up for the last 9 months. You’re not alone.

I’ve rounded up everything you need to greet the season with a body built for your teeniest bikini…

THE EARLY BIRD GETS THE SEXY BODY…

Experts say that if you’re trying to get in ideal shape before your beach days, start eating your biggest meals in the morning. That’s right: start loving breakfast.

If you’re on my instagram stories, you know that some version of the above brekky covered in this seasoning is my jam in the summer. If you’re vegan, replace any meat products with beans or a fresh fruit salad in the morning for energy and stamina. 

I am a huge fan of smoothies, which are packed with nutrition and allow you to get so many fruits, milks, veggies and nuts in at one time. I just love to blend Moon Juice’s Power Dust, Spirit Dust and Beauty Dust into each one (this sampler pack contains all the flavors they make and has been my lifesaver lately!)

This affordable little blender (which also happens to look adorable and save space in my kitchen) is the best investment I’ve made all year. I’ve made thousands of smoothies already – first thing in the morning and right before bed at night.. I need something to tide me over while I make breakfast, and this is perfect. It’s single serve, so you just blend, replace the spinning part with a to-go top, grab a glass straw – and you’re out!


BOOST YOUR BUST...

I used to dread summer. Not because I don’t love sunshine (I do), or because I don’t love swimming (I do), surfing (I do) and warm days (love ‘um.) I used to be embarrassed about my body.

For a long time, I didn’t quite fit into any swimsuits. There was always this extra room at the top of each one. Room that stared me down, defiantly asking, “Where are the boobs that are supposed to fill me?”

I am really not a self-conscious person, but literally every suit I’ve ever tried on expected me to have more cleavage. I felt deflated and defeated. Swimsuits, no matter how small, are all pretty much designed for you to be busting out of. The problem was, I had nothing to bust.

Until now. This summer I am super proud of my figure and can’t wait to go shopping for new swimsuits. It’s the first year I’ve finally felt like ME and I can thank a totally organic product, made by women – for women!

This organic oil is a top choice for doctors, patients, bloggers, moms, students, influencers and women worldwide. For a good reason: it’s is seriously the easiest, safest and healthiest way to boost your cup size.

It’s a must-have for anyone looking to achieve their ideal summer body.

Genetix is a power-packed serum that pairs regenerating, indulgent herbal enzymes with hydrating oils to naturally firm, tone and enhance your curves. These thoughtful and natural ingredients penetrate and activate quickly to stimulate blood flow, encourage estrogen-like activity and promote the growth of new cells wherever it’s applied.

Handcrafted in micro-batches for potency and concentration, Genetix is a small, woman owned business who’s main mission is to help you be your most beautiful self.

Genetix states, “We wanted women of all shapes and sizes to have a healthy, natural choice in the crusade for a bigger bust. For a fraction of the cost of surgery, our Organic Enhancement Oil is developed to give women the shape they desire – without any harmful side effects.”

I simply do a healing breast massage with the oil every night and am so impressed that I have gone up full cup sizes with this practice!

First, surpassing my expectations, I started filling out many old bras and bikinis within just a few weeks time. Then, truly surprising me, I had to start shopping for larger top sizes (with a proud smile plastered on my face, of course!) Other people have definitely noticed and my doctor uses the product now too!

I LOVE it! A simple massage every night and you’re on your way to having the body you always knew you deserved, plus protecting your feminine health!  Oh, and PS – it works on your BUTT, too!!!!

Wouldn’t it be terrific to peel off your beach cover-up this summer and feel more toned, stronger, and more confident than ever?

HYDRATION NATION…

Although diet soda offers a “zero” calorie alternative to regular soda, it still interferes with weight loss. If you’re serious about getting that body looking in tip-top shape, don’t drink anything but water. Substituting water for every other drink will drastically lower your caloric intake.

You sweat more when the temperature’s hot, especially if you’re working or exercising in the heat. Drinking water helps replenish the fluids lost by excessive sweating. If you don’t get enough water, you may become dehydrated, and the combination of hot temperatures and dehydration can lead to serious heat-related illnesses.

The best way to stay hydrated is to always have a water bottle with you. I recommend this one, since it’s portable, stainless steel, BPA free and holds both hot and cold beverages. There’s lots of different colors and prints – so have fun with it! Get one you’ll love to carry everywhere.

Be sure to hydrate before, during and after every workout.  It’s easier to maintain your fluid balance if you start out in a well-hydrated state.


START SMALL…

If you do nothing else, get yourself to walk at least 15 minutes a day. Walking is a great way to exercise, and studies show that even 15 minutes can increase your lifespan by three years. Find an excuse to be outside! Even if it’s just for ten minutes, it can boost your mood and your metabolism.
