Before and After Pics: Tracy Anderson's 30 Day Method Bootcamp
Part of me feels like, "Damn, these 30 days flew by!" The other part of me is like, "Damn, haven't we been at this for like 6 months, already??!"
I never feel as validated as I do when I see results in photographic color...no matter how loose or how snug your jeans feel, no matter what the scale says day to day, the truth is in the pics! Check out the shots and the stats:
Start Weight: 176.6
End Weight: 165
Total Pounds Lost: 11.6
Right Thigh: 3/4"
Left Thigh: 3/4"
Right Calf: 3/4"
Left Calf: 3/4"
Hips: 2 1/2"
Waist: 3 1/2"
Butt Length: 1 1/4"
Cheek Height: 2"
Right Arm: 3/4"
Left Arm: 3/4"
Total Inches Lost: 16 3/4"
I'm not gonna lie...I'm pretty psyched about my butt lifting an entire 2 inches! That cheek height measurement shows some major lifttage of the derriere! Whoo hoo!
I will post more epiphanies tomorrow-- tonight, I am super exhausted and ready to crash out...But here is a rundown of my plan for my TAM future. I had the best results from Tracy's original Mat DVD and I have an entire series of Perfect Design which I haven't completed. In light of the expense of her Meta/Continuity workouts, I want to revisit Mat for 2 weeks, then move on to 10 day sequences of Perfect Design and then begin Meta Omni.
As far as the food plan, I think I have developed a much better sense of my appetite and what food feels good for me--- (pork and red meat are big problems for my digestion right now, much to my dismay/horror/shock/disappointment.) That said, chicken, turkey and fish are all on the menu, combined with lots of fresh veggies and possibly some of the purees from the cleanse-- blueberry apple, kiwi basil and choco-chestnut pudding were my favorites!
OK, lovelies, more from the Mistress tomorrow....Please feel free to email me any questions you may have about the bootcamp experience, diet, exercise, etc. firstname.lastname@example.org
What I'd like to do is to post bootcamp recipes for individual servings, since my biggest ish with the menu/recipes is the wastefulness of the food...Certain recipes make 3X the amount and then you end up having to throw out perfectly good food!
Tracy Anderson's Mat Workout: Next on the Mistress' TAM schedule!
I just want to also take a moment to thank all of you for being such a huge part of my support system-- just knowing that there are amazing women reading this blog, makes it so much more gratifying for me to follow through with my part of working out and writing about it!
Much love to all....and cheers to continuing the TAM journey together!
