#MBBChallenge Day 11: Just Stick to the Plan (Wo)Man! #JustDoIt

Yes, it’s a big salad like Elaine’s on Seinfeld, only with a bunch of unexpected strawberries and apples I had to pick out. Don’t be mixing fruit with veggies unless it’s celery in a Bloody Mary. Yup! Tomatoes are fruit and so am I!

Day #11: Thursday, Jan. 22, 2015

I have a confession to make. I eat out. A LOT. I’m thinking that is probably why the weight is not dropping as fast as I would like. I get really busy at night trying to finish up my articles, cooking for the kids and driving my daughter around (the hubs works nights so it’s all on me). But I need to make a more conscious effort this week to stick to the plan and I know I will start seeing better results. But as I said in yesterday’s post, I am taking baby steps so they will stick.

I can usually find something carb-free at a fast food restaurant. I do not recommend this to anyone aiming to follow Max’s Best Bootcamp fitness challenge, but in a pinch it’s good to know you can get a salad with grilled chicken at Wendy’s or (heaven forbid!) Chick-fil-A. Just MAKE SURE you read the back of the dressing. The one they gave me tonight had 26 carbs! I used my own dressing at home to make it carb free.

Curious to know what I can have on Max’s meal plan? Here it is:

Breakfast:

  • Protein shake OR
  • 2 eggs cooked in coconut oil

Lunch: 

  • Protein shake

Snack Group #1 – choose one from Group #1 & one from Group #2

  • 15 almonds
  • 2 tbsp. almond butter
  • 2 oz. cheese
  • 3 oz. beef jerky

Snack Group #2 – choose one from Group #1 & one from Group #2

  • 1 cup raw carrots & celery
  • 1 small apple
  • 1 cup mixed berries
  • 15 cherry tomatoes

Dinner:

  • 6 oz. lean meat
  • Steamed veggies
  • HUGE mixed salad (1 tbsp. each olive oil, apple cider vinegar, fresh lemon & water)

Unlimited starchy veggies:

  • Lettuce
  • Spinach
  • Zucchini
  • Mixed Greens
  • Broccoli
  • Squash
  • Mushrooms
  • Asparagus
  • Cucumbers
  • Eggplant
  • Celery
  • Cauliflower

Max approved drinks:

  • Black coffee
  • Tea
  • Water/Fresh lemon water

This is a 1,300 calorie per day plan. Now that I typed it all out I can clearly see the things need to eliminate from my diet:

No-no’s:

  • Half & half
  • Bacon
  • Butter for cooking
  • Cut back on cheese

I had it in my head that as long as I was going no carbs I was fine. But all those calories have been adding up! I still have 4 1/2 weeks to go. More tweaks and more workouts should do the trick. I will get there…. slowly but surely!

Tonight’s boot camp kicked….my…..butt. It was taught by Nick who is an awesome motivator. Just when I wanted to give up and not finish my set he was right there in my face encouraging me to keep going. You don’t get this at a regular gym when you’re climbing stairs to nowhere.

I still feel like I am the clumsiest, most non-graceful person there, tripping on things, dropping the ball (literally), but no one ever makes me feel that way.  I have a feeling I am going to be veeeery sore tomorrow. Lots of arm work and squats. Hurts so good!
