Holiday Parties Are Happening Soon. Are You Ready for Your LBD Moment?
Ok so maybe you splurged on Halloween candy or a couple of parties over the weekend. Don’t let that habit carry over too long because it’s November and Thanksgiving along with many holiday parties are coming up fast! Check out that closet! What’s in there that doesn’t quite fit as well as you would like? Fitness Pro and CEO of LeBootCamp.com Valerie Orsoni has great tips to get you ready for your holiday parties without a huge diet or hours at the gym. It’s a lot easier than you think!
Here are Valerie’s tips.
1) Downsize to keep your eye on the prize! Find that favorite dress that may be a bit snug and hang it up in your bathroom or bedroom, for you to see every day. Keeping it visually present will help keep your goal in sight and your motivation high!
Burn off the bulge.
Do it like the French and squeeze in 30 minutes of walking on an empty stomach every day. Walking on empty draws energy from the body’s sugar stores thus burning fat from targeted trouble zones and accentuating your assets! *This fitness secret has been proven in several studies, including one conducted by the Lariboisiere Hospital in Paris.
Glow in your LBD!
Start your day with this phytochemical-rich morning detox: Juice 1 apple, a handful of spinach, 1 celery stalk, 4 strawberries, 1 carrot, and 1 slice of fresh ginger. You’ll get a fresh dewy complexion, plus boost your love factor with the ginger’s aphrodisiac virtues!
Get the Pippa Butt Lift!
Stand up straight and bend your knees slightly. Keeping your abs tight and your back straight (no arching), tilt your hips forward while contracting your glutes for a strong 1-second squeeze. Finish the move by pulling your hips back. You can do this exercise while brushing your teeth! We spend an average of 6 minutes a day brushing our teeth – that’s 42 minutes per week of butt squeezes, the equivalent of a booty class at the gym without the sweat!
Eat pure protein first (vegetable protein such as hummus or animal protein like fish) – before your carbs – so that your body gets what it needs instead of storing your meal as fat. On the go? Keep a supply of turkey jerky in your handbag for when hunger hits. Protein-rich and satisfying, chewing jerky will give your brain the time it needs to register you’re full before you indulge in anything else!
Boost your bust!
Keep your breasts perky with just 1 minute of chest presses a day: Starting with your arms at chest level, squeeze your palms together in a push and release motion, continuously moving your arms up as you squeeze, until they’re high above your head. Do 100 reps to help firm the supporting tissue around the breasts and sculpt your bosom to its sexiest.
Drink before you dine.
Feeling in need of a nibble? Drink a venti hot tea first, and then check 5 minutes later if you are still truly hungry. Since your stomach is about the size of a venti beverage, chances are you won’t feel hungry anymore (unless it is authentic hunger pangs!).
Use the stairs to strut your stuff!
Get killer thighs – even in your heels! Take the stairs whenever the opportunity arises, and when you do, take them two at a time. Double steps increase the load on your quadriceps and glutes, effortlessly toning up your thighs and butt for the big day.
Get the iconic Audrey Hepburn Breakfast at Tiffany’s look.
Go for a 100% raw breakfast to rock the dress that rocked the nation: 10 sprouted almonds (soaked in water overnight) + 1 pink grapefruit + 1 banana + berries to satisfy.
