Make This Summer a Fit One with Exercise, Diet, and Skincare

I have partnered with Lubriderm on this post. All opinions are my own.

With summer just around the corner, get ready to shed your winter layers and show off more skin. Prepping for the season requires a combination of proper fitness, nutritious eating and a healthy lifestyle. As you may or may not know, 2017 is the year of fitness for me. I’ve lost 50 pounds and am exercising regularly for the first time in years. I look so much better and I feel amazing. I know that I’m doing the best I can for myself and for my family, and it’s dope. So when Lubriderm told me about this fitness agenda, including a sweet Interval Workout with Kevin Curry of FitMenCook at Kore New York, I was more than psyched to join in on the fun. I know it would be tough, but I knew I was ready to step up my game.


Kore New York in downtown NYC’s Meatpacking District and is all about a higher intensity type of interval training. Meaning…hold on tight, you are going to work out, have fun, and feel the burn. It’s 50 minutes of full-body, HIGH INTENSITY strength, cardio, core and resistance training set to a club inspired atmosphere. It’s REPS ON RHYTHM™. While there were moments I just had to catch my breath, I am pleased to say that I actually finished a good 95% of this class. Maybe I wasn’t a model student, but I was pretty darn good. And I felt great afterwards, not like death, so that’s a huge plus, right? It was even better to have the very cool Kevin Curry of FitMenCook there, too!!

After that kid of workout, your body is just craving something good. In addition to getting your muscles toned up and looking good, you have to feed your body the right foods. It’s all about what you put into it when you’re talking about getting something out of it. You know what I mean? While lean proteins, whole grains, fruits and vegetables in right-sized portions are the way to go, I have a soft spot for a really tasty smoothie. They have so much goodness in one nice, easy to drink package. They’re easy to make and you can really mix it up, getting different flavors, tastes, and nutrients each and every time!

One of the best parts of the day was when Kevin shared this awesome recipe. It’s really tasty, for sure.

Kevin Curry’s Smoothie Recipe

  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup strawberries (frozen)
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1 cup almond milk (or more to loosen up)
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1/2 banana
  • 2 tbsp almond butter
  • cinnamon to taste
  • optional to make sweeter – 1g stevia in the raw or 1 teaspoon agave

Kevin Curry of FitMenCook was also awesome enough to share some of his great tips on simple ways to gear up for summer! Get Summer Ready!!!

Fuel Your Body

Make room in your recipes for seasonal fruit and vegetables like cucumber, berries and melons. Start each day with a smoothie to up your antioxidant intake.

Dare to Bare Skin

Make sure your skin is ready too! Using a light moisturizer and SPF combo, like Lubriderm® Daily Moisture Lotion with SPF 15, will ensure healthy-looking and protected skin you’ll want to show off.

Get Up and Get Moving

As temperatures rise, get a jumpstart on your summer fitness with simple activities that everyone

can do outside. Go for a morning run, bike in a local park or hike a scenic trail.

Swap Seasonal Styles

Switch out the heavy winter garments for breezy summer attire. Adding bright colors and breathable fabrics to your wardrobe will help beat the heat.

Show Off That Skin

Ok, so we have our fitness an diets working in high gear, but there’s one more really important part of looking and feeling great in this super fit 2017. While you are looking feeling all good, and the mercury keeps on rising, there’s a good chance you’ll be showing off a lot more of something. Shorts, t-shirts, bathing suits? What could it be that I’m referring to? Well, yes, silly, I’m talking about your SKIN! You need to get you epidermis in shape, too, if you’re really going to look and feel your very best!!! So remember to care for your skin by making sure it stays hydrated and healthy in the summer heat with the help of Lubriderm Daily Moisture Lotion SPF 15 that won’t weigh skin down during the summer and can moisturize for 24 hours!

Daily Moisture Lotion with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 15 is the solution to moisturize and protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. This fast absorbing formula delivers broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection and long-lasting moisture, all with a clean, non-greasy feel.

So, what do you think? Are you ready to get your WHOLE body fit this summer? Diet, exercise, and skin care. That’s the trilogy I’m talking about. It works, trust me. My 2017 is looking really great so far and I can only hope and pray that it gets even better!
