Get Fit: My 2014 Bikini Boot Camp Plan

It’s hard to believe that this is my third year of doing Bikini Boot Camp here on the site. I’m so excited to be sharing my 2014 Boot Camp Plan today! I love this time of year because the warm weather inspires me to get in shape. And, seeing all of your amazing feedback on my Boot Camp Plan helps me to get even moreinspired. The great thing about our LaurenConrad.com community is that everyone helps to motivate each other. In fact, I encourage you all to interact with your fellow readers and help each other to stay on track. With that said, this year’s Bikini Boot Camp Plan is a great way to change your body and your mindset for the better. You will feel great not only about your physique, but also about yourself. When it comes to putting on that two-piece, confidence is everything, ladies.

If you tried last year’s Bikini Boot Camp Plan or my 7 Days to Skinny Jeans Reboot, this plan will seem very doable. And, thanks to the ladies at Tone It Up, this year I will be sharing a few bonus motivational tips throughout this plan to help you reach the finish line (which, in this case, is the beach or the pool). Overall, if you remember to make healthy meal choices, sweat at least once a day, and stay focused, you will be feeling in tip–top shape.

My Bikini Boot Camp Plan


A Refresher of the Rules

  • This is a lifestyle change, so do not think of it as a diet. Try to stick with this as long as you can!
  • Don’t lose sight of your goals. You can do this!
  • Drink lots and lots of water. {Tone It Up tip: “Drink half your body weight in ounces of water per day. If you have trouble remembering to drink water, get that phone out and set an alarm to remind yourself.}
  • As soon as you wake up, have one cup of lemon water. Make sure you drink it at least 30 minutes before you eat.
  • Pick one exercise to do every day, six days a week (save one day for rest). Need a little inspo?
  • Do all of the exercises listed under “Everyday Exercises” each day in addition to your selected workout.
  • Pick one meal from each category for each day.
  • Pick one snack for each day.

The Off-Limits List

  • No white breads, large portions of cheese or fried foods. {Tone It Up tip: Try to limit these but don’t become obsessive—leave a little wiggle room for your favorite foods.}

Tone It Up’s Motivation Tips:

  • Set your goal and visualize yourself achieving it.
    We are firm believers that visualization is key to reaching your goals and making your dreams come true. We practice it daily! Start by making a list of where you want to be, or even create a vision board with images that embody those goals—and look at it everyday! Visualize yourself waking up everyday grateful and one step closer to where you want to be. See yourself making healthy choices, completing your workouts and feeling amazing. If you don’t visualize yourself achieving what you want, it’s going to be that much harder to get there.
  • Get organized.
    Take a few steps each week to ensure you stay on track. Lay out your workout clothes for the next three days, pack a gym back to keep in your car, write your workouts for the week in your calendar just like you would an important meeting. Also, don’t forget to prep healthy meals and snacks for the week ahead. We always keep fresh, cut veggies in the fridge and a pre-portioned bag of raw almonds in our purse for on-the-go snacking. These simple steps don’t take too much time or effort, but they go a long way in helping you reach your goals. We call this setting yourself up for success.
  • Indulge your sweet tooth…with healthy options.
    Satisfy your cravings with a small piece of dark chocolate and a cup of herbal tea. We love anything with cinnamon or coconut, which are healthy, natural sweet tooth satisfiers. Another slimming option is to warm up this sleepy time elixir for a creamy, evening treat.
  • Weekends count too.
    If you take every Friday, Saturday and Sunday off from working out and eating healthy, that’s almost half the month. The weekends count more than ever when you’re trying to reach your goals. It can make the difference between up to a 4.3-pound weight loss (or gain) in a month. Challenge yourself to workout both Saturdays and Sundays. Even if it’s a day at the park with your family, a quick 20-minutehigh intense interval-training workout in the mornings or a sweat session with a friend…fit it in! If you have events to attend, eat healthy and choose low calorie options. That means steer clear of fried food and processed sugar. If you’re enjoying cocktails, choose a low calorie option over sugary drinks (you will avoid a headache the next day too!).

Stay tuned for more motivational tips from the Tone It Up girls coming in our next Bikini Boot Camp posts on the blog in a few weeks!

If you follow this plan pretty strictly, you will be ready to tie on your bikini in no time. Stay focused and remember that the overall goal of this Bikini Boot Camp plan is to feel confident, fuel your body with healthy foods, stick to your workout plan, stay hydrated, and get at least 8 hours of sleep every night.
