I felt much better this morning and I am too excited to wait until tomorrow, so today is day 1 of Tracy Anderson's 30 Day Method bootcamp! If nothing else, my first workout today proved that I REALLY need this. The food was the only part that wasn't tough! Here is how it is going so far-- I'll update in a bit with the rest of the food reviews.
First off, the details:
I am following the vegetarian plan (just a note to any vegans out there-- I do eat eggs. I am ok with this because they come from a beautiful farm that we visit regularly and know the owners of, where the hens run free and are not killed when they stop laying regularly)
Breakfast: The onion and pepper omelet was delicious! It was bigger than I expected, too, though I was still hungry when I finished. My tum needs to learn when enough is enough :). I could eat this every day.
Lunch: Hmm, green beans and spinach are definitely good but I am not used to them being the entire lunch. Still, I enjoyed them and I do get a snack before dinner.
Snack: Tomato Gazpacho
The workout was really tough for me. I thought I'd do a little better because I have been jogging for 45 min per day, 6 times per week for more than a month but both the mat and cardio were really tough. I was able to do 40 reps for most of the movements, but the crunch with legs kicked out was way too much for my out of shape mama stomach. I was only able to do 20 and my form wasn't good at all.
Cardio was tough, too, but for a different reason. I was just so confused and bored by the routine. I was always struggling to figure out what she was doing and so I wasn't able to do the moves as fully as I need to. I was so frustrated that I only did the two cardio sequences once (though I did do the Thanksgiving routine, too. It is SO much easier to follow!). I need to give the DVD more time, I know and I will, but I may supplement more from the online material.
