#MBBChallenge Day 3: Out With the Old, in With the New


Max’s Best Bootcamp 6-week challenge “Luxurious” meals include 6 oz. of lean meat, in this case top sirloin, with sautéed mushrooms and onions with steamed veggies. YUM!

Day #3: Wednesday, Jan. 14, 2015

After no sleep, a night and day of worry and uncomfortable surroundings, I was relieved that my son came out of appendix surgery virtually unscathed. It was finally time to go home and sleep! He will be in the hospital for another day as they monitor his infection but once I knew he’d be sleeping for a few hours I felt okay about finally getting some shuteye.

I’m on Day #3 and have only had one workout so far. My diet also is not going according to plan so I know I am going to have to kick it up a few notches to meet my goals due to these minor setbacks. My challenge is to lose 20 pounds in 6 weeks. My goal is to do three or four boot camp workouts per week plus two personal training sesisons.The end of the six weeks is Feb. 28 so I need to lose 3.33 pounds per week to make my goal.

The old me would say, “Life is too crazy right now. Put this diet/exercise plan on hold.” But the new me is saying, “Enough excuses. Life will always throw curveballs. Learn to adapt, adjust and keep moving forward.”

Dinner tonight was prepared by Chef Sheila or Bloke, or whoever cooks over there at Outback. Yes, more food to-go since we’ve been camped out at Danbury Hospital. Despite not eating as I should on “the plan” and only getting in one workout in so far this week, my scale still tells me I lost four pounds. I’m not sure if it’s lying and just trying to make me feel good about the horrible week I’ve had so far, or if it is in fact true. I will find out tomorrow afternoon when I meet Jess, AKA Personal Trainer (PT), for my 30-minute session. If I’m feeling sprite and sassy I may just get up at 9 a.m. and get in a boot camp workout in the morning to make up for missing the last two days.

My son will be in the hospital another day or two but has had constant visitors and excellent care from the doctors and nurses at Danbury Hospital so I am able to run in and out for short periods of time. Hopefully he will be home soon and life can get back to “normal.” My life “normal?” Yeaaaah right.

So how did I do today on Day #3? Check it out below.

Please note: The cream in my coffee is NOT Max approved, however, being on the run after my son was in surgery, this is my own modified version. DO NOT attempt! Max’s plan  says to drink black coffee OR coffee with half & half, NOT cream.

Day #3 stats:

  • Breakfast: Egg and sausage “sandwich” sans bagel, coffee with cream
  • Lunch: Snoozed through lunch
