#MBBChallenge Day 1: #EatClean #TrainDirty Keep the Cray Cray Under Wraps

mbb day 1

 

Me and “accountability” partner, A.K.A. my new trainer, “Jess” who is as cute as a button.

Day #1: Monday, Jan. 12, 2015

Monday began Day #1 of my 6-week journey to better health, a better diet, smaller skinny jeans and kicking my no working out habit to the curb. I accepted Max’s 6-week workout challenge and that means no carbs, no booze and no fun. Juuuuust kidding. It actually is a lot of fun, despite having to give up my precious wine. WAH!

Day #1 began with my first boot camp which KICKED my butt! Kettlebells, and pushups, and ropes, oh my! No, I am not talking about the new 50 Shades of Grey movie, I am talking about what goes on during a Max’s Best Bootcamp workout.

It’s not like a regular gym where you climb steps to nowhere, “spinning” through the open road pretending to  FEEL the road, SEE the road, BE the road, or watching egomaniacs checking themselves out in the mirrors and working out in silence. Nope. This is a group atmosphere, a team environment where everyone is there to keep you going when you feel like you’re about to pass out…..or puke. It was definitely not the easiest first day after Girl’s Night Out and dealing with a sick child the night before. But it turns out I also knew four people right off the bat who were part of my workout team through the circuits.

After the hour was over it turned out that one of the ladies in my group is actually my new trainer! And we used to go to the same church, and we both work/worked at the same place. Cue Twilight Zone music. Next thing you know she will be getting me back to church! #neversaynever

The least fun part of Day #1 was getting on the scale, taking measurements and finding out the percentage of my body fat was pretty darn horrendous…. not Kirstie Alley fat but extra “curvy” to say the least. My loving husband always says he “likes a woman with meat on her bones,” which is cute, but I know it’s high time for a cool change, to quote the Little River Band.

After my ridiculous answers to Guru Max’s probing questions, I am convinced my trainer thinks I am totally crazy. Max already knows.

Here’s my Day #1 stats:

  • Breakfast: Coffee w/cream
  • Lunch: Protein shake
  • Dinner: Roasted chicken and green beans
  • Workout: 60-minute boot camp
  • Starting weight: 1×8.2
  • 6-weight loss goal –  20 lbs.
