Bikini Boot Camp Plan?

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

I found this yesterday on laurenconrad.com and am not entirely sure what I think. I sort of respect it a lot and am super intimated! Here it is:


Bikini Boot Camp Plan

A Refresher of the Rules

This is a lifestyle change, so do not think of it as a diet. Try to stick with this as long as you can!
Don't lose sight of your goals. You can do this!
Drink lots and lots of water. {Tone It Up tip: "Drink half your body weight in ounces of water per day. If you have trouble remembering to drink water, get that calendar out and mark it down to remind yourself.}
As soon as you wake up, have one cup of lemon water. Make sure you drink it at least 30 minutes before you eat.
Pick one exercise to do every day (save one day for rest). Need a little inspo? Listen to my workout mix!
Do all of the exercises listed under "Everyday Exercises" each day in addition to your selected workout.
Pick one meal from each category for each day.
Pick one snack for each day.


The Off-Limits List

No white breads, large portions of cheese or fried foods. {Tone It Up tip: Try to limit these but donít become obsessiveóleave a little wiggle room for your favorite foods.}
No candy, baked goods, or ice cream. Ideally, no sugar! (Learn how to curb your sweet tooth by clicking here.)
No soda or flavored drinks.
No eating 2-3 hours before you to go bed.


Exercise Options

Run for 45 minutes
Alternate sprinting and walking for 60-90 seconds for 30 minutes
1 hour of yoga, kickboxing or Pilates
Cowabunga Full Body Toning Workout
45 minutes of spin
The Aussie Babe Sunseeker Workout
20 minutes of cardio of your choice (Make sure you break a sweat!)
2 sets of my arm workout + 30 squats, 30 lunges, 30 leg lifts for each leg
Any of the exercise options from my 7 Days to Skinny Jeans Plan


Everyday Exercises

50 crunches in the morning, 50 crunches at night
60 second plank in the morning, 60 second side plank on each side at night {Tone It Up tip: Side planks will blast your love handles! Pulse your hips to the floor and back up to increase the intensity.}

    Does the Cowabunga Full Body Workout involve dressing up like a TMNT and eating pizza? I can do that. ;)

I actually like the sound of it. Maybe I'll do that to kick myself in gear once my sister gets married on June 1st and I have time to breath again!

    Some of it might be a little restrictive, but in general I think it's not bad. For someone just starting out though I would start with fewer crunches and work up to 50.

I hesitate with anything that states drinking lemon water will fix everything. I have super sensitive teeth and can't eat citrus like that. I know it's supposed to help with digestion, but I guess you have to know your limits.

    Definitely intimidating, but I'm sure you'd see results if you stuck to it.
