Today I am going to be giving away some major secrets about how to get your “beach body” ready in 5 days! That sounds impossible, right? Well, these secrets are in fact not secrets at all, but the methods that work for me! Disclaimer: I want to maintain my stance on body positivity and typically hate the word “beach body” and all the pressure that comes with it — but there are small things we can do to be more healthy, & to help us look and feel more beautiful!

Some of you may know that I was in Vegas two weeks ago. I touched on my latest body image issues in this post — and I am still holding strong on trying to love my body more and not utter the dreaded “F-word.” That being said, I knew that while I was in Vegas I would be drinking and eating — but I had a huge swim campaign to shoot the following Friday. So after eating everything at the Cosmo: Eggslut, Secret Pizza and Beauty and Essex I only had 5 days to get ready for my shoot.
Can you transform your body in 5 days? No. Can you debloat it so that you look decent in photos? You bet!
So here are my secrets:
I took a page out of Skinny Confidential’s blog and traded in my coffee for her Detox Drink. It’s super easy to make, and I actually love the taste. Every morning I drank the following concoction: a handful of mint leaves, half a lemon, 2-3 TBSP of apple cider vinegar, cayenne pepper & turmeric. I make it in a huge tumbler, and keep refilling it throughout the day. It seriously works!!
The day after I got back, I decided to skip Barry’s and go for a walk instead. Sometimes lifting weights right after a rough weekend, can make your body look more swollen. So on Monday afternoon I went for a long walk — I ended up walking 10 miles that day. I felt so great on Tuesday! So walk everywhere you can! I am still loyal to my Fitbit, and haven’t worn a watch since!
I took Barry’s classes on Tuesday & Wednesday as usual. Thursday night before the shoot, I just rested and made sure to get a really good night sleep.
