bridal boot camp: jenni's first week plan
Personal trainer Craig Ramsay started off bride-to-be Jenni with a grocery list and exercise plan to kick off the Bridal Boot Camp. Below are Craig Ramsay's instructions for the blushing bride.
From Craig Ramsey:
It's important to consult your doctor before beginning a diet or fitness plan. It's important to know which nutrition plan would be appropriate for your specific needs and will guide you to your health and fitness success. We all have different nutritional needs, medical conditions, allergies and our own personal relationship to food, all of which needs to be taken into consideration when creating a personalized meal plan. Taking all of that into consideration, here is a grocery list specifically designed for Jenni and her first week of her Bridal Bootcamp.
JENNI'S FIRST WEEK GROCERY LIST:
-Unsweetened Coconut Milk
-Organic Frozen Blueberries
-Organic Frozen Spinach
-Raw Steel Cut Oatmeal
-Lean Chicken & Turkey (ground or Breast)
-Shredded Parmesan Cheese
-Oranges or Tangerines
-Organic Snap Peas
-Organic Green Beans
-Crushed Organic Tomatoes in a can
-Protein Powder (Ramsay suggests: SunWarrior.com)
-Bacon (Morningstar Farms) Almost any grocery store carries this product
-Power Crunch Bar
Craig Ramsay also recommended Jenni watch the documentary "Vegucated," which he says, "helps clients lead to responsible meat/animal consumption."
If we all were responsible meat eaters (organic, humane, and know where we are getting our animal products), then we would not only be healthier and more chemically balanced, but we would be more energetically in tune with our planet. -- Craig Ramsay
WORKOUT ROUTINE (5 Days A Week)
After Jenni eats breakfast she has her "at-home 40min workout" which consists of cardio and resistance training exercises that focus on using her own body weight and can be executed with very little space. If stairs are available, I recommend finishing with some stair climbing.
The "Gym" workout broken up into three parts.
Part 1 stationary bike (cardio) with dumbbell (resistance training) combo.
Part 2 20 min cardio (treadmill option of her choice)
Part 3 20 min cardio stairclimber
Workout 3 (which really shouldn't be called a workout as more of a reward)
Taken from my book "Anatomy of Stretching," Jenni is to perform 20mins-40 mins of varied stretching programs offered in my book.
