Now is the time. TBT Bootcamp day 2.

Today marks day 2 of Total Body Transformation Bootcamp that I am teaching at my gym with Molly. It’s Tuesday so that means it was my day for training. Since we only did measurements and fit tests yesterday, this was officially day 1 of the brutal hard work that our participants will be going through.

We focused on Chest, Back, & Legs today. I had 6 different stations with 2 different exercises at each one that they had to repeat as many rounds as possible in 5 minutes. Everyone did awesome & I couldn’t be more proud to see everyone put in this much effort already. I can’t wait to push them outside of their comfort zones and really dig deep to get the results they want.

Daily Challenge: Eat breakfast everyday this week.

Our brains and muscles need fuel and energy to start the day and breakfast is exactly what will help in doing this. This is why breakfast is the most important meal of the day..we need to “break the fast” after sleeping for so long. It jumpstarts our metabolism and you should aim to eat within an hour of waking up.

Some healthy options:

  • Oatmeal with blueberries & flaxseed
  • Whole grain cereals like Kashi GoLean (look for cereals with less than 10g of sugar)
  • Greek yogurt or cottage cheese with fruit
  • Scrambled eggs with veggies

Just try to stay away from empty calorie, high sugary breakfasts like pancakes, waffles, cinnamon rolls & other pastries, poptarts, sugary cereals, etc. Something is better than nothing, but most of these just make you feel lethargic from the sugar crash and is not proper fuel for your body.

My workout & meals for tuesday:

I did bootcamp workout #2 which is what Molly will be teaching tomorrow morning. It was a heavy cardio workout emphasizing on plyometrics. It incorporated many different equipment like rings, boxes, medicine balls, and an agility ladder. It was a good sweat and i’m sure the bootcampers will love it!

Meals:

5:00 a.m. – apple
7:00 a.m. – oats made with almond milk, egg white, 2 tbsp pb2, 1 tsp coconut, 1/2 cup applesauce
10:00 a.m. – kashi golean crisp cereal
12:00 p.m. – 2 eggs, spinach, salsa, small tortilla, green peppers
8:00 p.m. – greek yogurt, cottage cheese, pb2, sprinkle of granola

What a weird timing for meals, i know. I was super hungry this morning so I gave in to my body’s needs and then after lunch i wasn’t hungry until 8! I do best when i listen to my body though, so whatever works!
