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 new 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!
