I think Ashley at a Healthy, Happier, Bear is jumping on board for the Bikini Bootcamp Challenge ~ Woohoo! She asked for a sample of what is in day one until she can pick up the book. Here is a quick recap for those wondering what my day will look like tomorrow.
Day one Meditation & Workouts:
It starts with the Day's Inspiration:
Journal Writing for 15 minutes
Meditation for 10 minutes
Yoga for 15 minutes
Walking-30 mins to an hour
Circuit Training 38 minutes
Core Strengthening for 20 minutes
I will be doing my meditation & yoga in the morning, cardio at lunch (gym workouts) and circuit training and strengthening for after work. If I have the chance I will fit in walking too, but, I think this is a pretty big list to follow. I want to journal at the end of the day about my day.
Menu for Day One:
Morning Burst: cup of hot water with lemon (each morning starts this way!)
Breakfast: blueberry smoothie
Lunch: Amansala Salad with Grilled Fish (or chicken) w/ginger lime dressing
Snack: Jicama sticks with lime and salt
Dinner: Tortilla-less Tortilla Soup, Chicken Fajitas with black beans Guacamole and Amansala Salsa
Dessert: fruit kebabs
I am not too excited about breakfast (wish it was more) and snack.....but, I will say the menus do get better from here on out. The book does give you a list of healthy snack options to have on hand so you don't starve (apples and such) so I am sure you will see some of them show up or I'll be moving dessert up in my day. A smoothie isn't enough to power through spinning for me.
Cooling Cucumber and Honey Scalp Treatment
The book gives you all the recipes, of course. And they try to make things as simple, natural and easy as possible, which I love.
The downsides: time intensive and NO alcohol or chocolate. (not a big thing for me, but, it IS only two weeks!)
So, there you have it! That is how my day 1 is looking.
Any questions so far? Let me know if you want any recipes posted or what not.
