8 Week Bootcamp Results (The Nutrition Edition!)

Ah! I can’t believe today is the start of week 8 of the 8 week bootcamp I have been a part of.

→ I will tell you when I started I did not believe that you could work out 4 days a week and get results.

→ I did not believe that you could have a full “cheat” day and still get results.

→ I did not believe in myself to to finish the full program 100%.

BUT, I told myself I need to change my mindset. Change my routine. And try it. Because working out 7 days a week and obsessing about nutrition was not working and was not sustainable.

So here we are. 8 weeks in. And today I crossed the 10lb mark. (and I happily ate homemade cherry cobbler this weekend).

I thought I would share with you what a typical day looks like from a nutrition standpoint in hopes that it might inspire you!

WAKE-UP

  • Preworkout (30 calories)
  • Workout
  • Post workout (100 calories of BCAA that also happens to taste like a chocolate milkshake)

BREAKFAST

  • Overnight oats (been loving this recipe!) OR smoothie! I always add flax seed and spinach to my smoothies to help tie me over. If you want some extra punch, add ¼ cup of oats and it will keep you full for 4-5 hours!

LUNCH

  • Homemade cobb salad. This includes butter lettuce, an egg, ham or turkey, chives and plain ranch dressing. Yep. You read that right. Real ranch. It is so good. I literally count down to it everyday. And if you haven’t jumped on the butter lettuce band wagon, try it. It’s so crunchy and sweet!
  • 1 cup of fruit. Usually sweet cherries (they take me a long time to eat) or grapes

SNACK

  • Smoothie (if I didn’t have it for breakfast) OR raw veggies with hummus or guacamole (I get the single servings from Costco and freeze them).
  • Mary’s Crackers (or a small serving of granola) or protein bite (I make these on Sunday). This helps with the 3pm crash. Some carbs for energy!

DINNER

  • I try to have 25% protein and 75% veggies at dinner. That said if it is a heavy cardio day, I’ll add in a healthy carb like brown rice, quinoa or ½ a sweet potato. This is an example of what we are eating this week!
  • ½ cup of fruit for dessert (sometimes with 1 square of dark chocolate)

And then. The hardest part. Kitchen is CLOSED! I try to supplement my nightmare cravings with peppermint tea, but this has been hard. The good part is after a few days, those cravings go away! And you get your habits reset.

So there you have it. A typical day. And you might noticed that I sneak in a lot of chocolate (Chocolate smoothies, chocolate energy bites, chocolate recovery drink, dark chocolate!). So I never feel deprived!!

I hope this helps you feel inspired this week! I’d love to have you join me on this journey!

I am loving my morning reading habit. Just finished my third book since starting this habit through Miracle Morning that you suggested! I love my morning (me) time. I actually am more productive throughout the day, am eating better, staying more positive, and sleeping so much better. I love the changes because of Miracle Morning and you! I have decided to start a new business. Wow! I wasn't even thinking that going in. I just have opened my mind and listened to my heart and decided to go after what I want. Life changing!

I am incredibly grateful that a friend recommended I connect with Holly! I was struggling to lose weight after having my first child and didn't know how to accomplish my goals while balancing other life commitments. Being part of Holly's support has given me the tools to succeed and it has been truly life-changing. Over a year and a half later, I still enjoy the connections with Holly's group and continued support to keep things fresh and to keep working on "being at my best."
