Tomorrow marks the start of the Best Body Bootcamp summer program! I am incredibly excited about this program, and now that I’ve had some time to digest everything, I thought I would share my plan and my goals for the 8 weeks.
As a visual learner, I decided to create a binder for the 8 week program. Although all of the documents Tina sends to those who are registered for the program can be viewed online, being able to print everything out helps me to plan out my weeks and to stay motivated.
I started by creating 5 tabs, one for each 2 week segment and one for other documents, such as the cardio workout packet.
I also used colorful tabs to mark off sections in the cardio workout packet, making it easier to turn to the various timed workouts.
For each 2 week section, I have printed out the following 3 things:
1. Menu and Workout Planner
Cassie from Back to her Roots created this AMAZING Menu Planner which provides the perfect place for me to plan out my meals and my workouts for each week. I have a planner printed for each week of the program and will use Saturdays to design my plan for the following week.
2. Weekly Goal Tracker
As part of the Best Body Bootcamp program, Tina has create 2 weekly goals every 2 weeks. You can have the same two goals for the whole 8 weeks or you can change them up every two weeks. For my first two weeks my goals are to …
- Not eat after 7PM
- Drink at least 8 8oz glasses of water a day
My goal is to reach each of my goals at least 5 days a week.
3. Weekly Workout Plan
As part of the bootcamp program, Tina sends us new workout plans every 2 weeks. The programs are both for beginners and for those with a little more experience. Tina provided us with a structured plan but encourages us to move things around as needed. I take Tina’s workouts and add them to my weekly planner.
For my diet, I am going to continue to eat as I have been these past few weeks. I am focused on portion control, eating mostly clean foods, and not eating after 7PM. I am going to pre-plan my meals for each week, that way I’m prepared for my trips to the grocery store and don’t have to worry about what I’m going to cook or eat.
This round of Best Body Bootcamp runs from June 17 – August 12. This week I am going to weigh in on Monday and then again on Friday as we close out the 7 Week Challenge. After this coming week I will officially switch my weigh-ins to Monday.
Through this 8 week program I’m really focusing on reaching my daily goals. My long term goals have not changed and thus I’m know I need to focus on staying on track daily. In case you’ve missed them, here are my goals in descending order…
- Under 180 lbs
- 199 lbs
- 207 lbs
- 215 lbs
- 219 lbs
- 225 lbs
There’s still time to sign up for the 8 week summer bootcamp if you’re interested. Whether you join #BestBodyBootcamp or create your own 8 week plan, I challenge you to use the weekly planner to organize your workouts and your diet. I really want each of us to have a successful summer!
