The lovely ladies from Booty Camp Fitness recently sent me their new Ultimate Home Edition 11-disc workout plan to try out. I am a big fan of their first workout DVDs, so I was really excited to try their newest series. Sammie Kennedy- the Creator of Booty Camp Fitness- and the other amazing boot-camp instructors have a very friendly and laid-back style, making even the biggest exercise newbie feel confident. When you think of a “boot camp” workout, you often think of instructors screaming at you and lots of intensity. This isn’t Booty Camp’s style at all. It’s all about having fun, empowering women, and making it seem like you are working out with a few of your girlfriends (who just happen to know some killer workout exercises).

The 11-disc series contain the following workouts:

The DVDs come with a workout calendar, jump rope, measuring tape, lifestyle guide, and e-cookbook as well. I’ve been testing out the workouts since the end of December and I’m starting the 2-month plan this week.

The workout that I love to hate? 20-minute Bounce ‘n Burn (jump rope)

Burn isn’t even the word! My legs feel like bricks when I do this workout. The last time I jumped rope was probably in grade school so it wasn’t pretty the first time I did it. After a couple painful sessions, I’ve relearned how to jump rope without whipping myself like silly (tip: wear long pants!). It will probably take me at least a few more sessions until I’m not gasping for air..it’s an intense 20 minutes, even with alternating jumping rope with strength exercises.

So far the videos are going well and I’m loving the variety of the 11 workouts. My muscles hate me though, so I’ve been making sure to stretch a lot, take my rest days when needed, and get lots of protein following tough workouts.

Like with this Triple lentil Recovery Soup!

Packed with over 25 grams of protein per serving, this soup will aid with post-workout recovery and get you back in the game in no time.

Yield
4 servings
Prep Time
Cook time
Total Time

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 sweet onion, chopped (~2 cups)
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 heaping cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 tsp coriander
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 5-6.5 cups vegetable broth, depending on how thin/thick you want it
  • 1/2 cup dry red lentils
  • 1/2 cup dry black beluga lentils
  • 1 cup dry green/brown lentils
  • Kosher salt & pepper, to taste (I used about 1/2 tsp salt)

Directions:

  1. In a large skillet or pot, add the oil and sauté the onion and garlic over low-medium heat for about 6-7 minutes.
  2. Add in the celery and sauté another few minutes. Stir in the spices and cook for another couple minutes on low.
  3. Now, rinse and drain the lentils and stir into skillet/pot. Add the broth and stir well. Increase heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, a simmer until thick and lentils are cooked, about 45 minutes to an hour. Watch closely and stir frequently so it doesn’t stick to the pot. Add more broth to thin out if desired. You can also use an immersion blender to blend some of the soup a bit. I did this, but left it mostly chunky. Add salt and pepper to taste.
25 grams

Prepare yourself for a high protein and flavourful soup, great for all those sore muscles that we often have at the beginning of the year. A little bit goes a long way with this soup! It’s extremely filling and lovely with a toasted bun or piece of bread.

IMG_6074

It’s a bit of an “ugly duckling” soup, but I think we learned not to judge food by its appearance long ago. ;)

I made this last night for dinner as it was very rainy out and I wanted something warm and ‘stew-like’. I subbed the celery for kale as I had none, and I omitted the black lentils for more red as I also had none. The recipe tasted amazing! My dad even put some on his chicken haha. :)

for the first time ever, i have no goals to achieve other than feeling happy. i came to realize there’s nothing you can achieve from outside world that guarantees you that feeling, only thing you can do is work on yourself and learn to be content with nothing but your own self. no material achievements, neither fitness or comparisons, money, etc can give you that. of course, they can always add up and help but first feeling the need of not needing anything but feeling love and be loved.

More than anything else, I want to stop using food as my God… to bring me comfort, joy, happiness, to be my friend, my companion, etc. I want to allow God, myself and others to nourish my soul and use food to nourish my body. I want to stop the bingeing that I have been doing for years. I am so scared and I have no idea how to stop. I feel like it is an addiction and that makes me feel hopeless. I just want to be healthy….but the “high” I get from bingeing feels so good and impossible to stop.

First off, that soup looks delish! I can’t get enough of lentils, they are sooo good! I’m currently obsessed with taco lentils.

I have a million goals for 2012, but one of them is just to do some fun activity every weekend. This past weekend my boyfriend and I went mini putting! Some other activities we will do this year will be rock climbing, golfing, and free cheap ideas are taking the dog to the dog park and hiking.

I’d like to axe my bulimia and the occassions that I restrict. I’d also like to do the 2nd treatment program in April for 19 days. I’m committed to being eating disorder free at age 31. I am committed to taking care of myself.

I’ve been staying more active and find that “doing” for myself has helped with the disorder. It gives me a natural high and makes me feel good so that I’m not so body form obsessed.

I love to work out, and do so a lot… but tend to be super hard on myself especially when my workout doesn’t make me almost faint. To be kinder, and calm the anxious part of my brain 2012 is going to include meditation once a week.

I have been a runner for 7 years. I have run a few 5ks, a 5 miler and a couple of half marathons. Naturally, as a runner, the marathon has always been something for which I have sought to complete. However, I have signed up for two marathons. The first I fractured my arm two days before in a biking accident and the second I hurt my knee during my last long run. This year, I am bound and determined to complete the marathon on May 20th. These DVDs would help me during my off days from running (I can’t afford a gym membership) to build up strength and lose a little extra weight and inches to improve my chances of completing it. Thank you for the consideration and all of your yummy recipes!

I had a baby in November and while I am actually down to my pre-baby weight (thanks to breast feeding) I am flabbier than ever! I really want to be able to get the muscles back that I used to have pre-pregnancy. On top of that I stumbled upon your blog a couple months ago and it sparked my passion (yet again) to go vegan. I am a vegetarian (although screwed up a few times being pregnant!), but have always seen the benefit in trying out a vegan diet. I really want to be able to show my son as he grows up how to eat healthy and that eating healthy isn’t boring or lame, that it is delicious and fun!! And of course that starts now, through breast milk. They say the more diverse your plates are, the more diverse your child’s palate will be! (BTW, had my second Green Monster today, awesome!)

We’re halfway between, how are we supposed to know whether we’re supposed to be hot or cold?

In 2011, my goal was to say yes more often. This led to an epic amount of powerful new experiences in my life, including getting on an airplane to spend three weeks hanging out with total strangers in a foreign country – a truly wonderful trip for which I will always be grateful I said yes!

2012 is therefore about making more time for the things I’ve let into my life (by saying yes) and removing the things that are not helping me out. In french, I would say “renforcements des capacités.” One of my big plans is to focus more on my yoga practise. I’ve been “doing yoga” for about a decade but it has always been about the physical. This year my goal is to open more time and space for the other parts (breathe, meditation, positive thinking) that yoga offers.

I also plan on sticking to a very diligent training and nutrition plan to feel like I put my all into my appearance and strength allowing myself to leave an audition no matter what the outcome with no regrets. I also plan to complete some fun runs and a quarter marathon.

Appreciate all the daily good things that happen. Just the little ones. Like a good cup of tea, amazing piece of fruit, finding a great park, clean sheats on a bed. Bad things will always happen – can’t prevent it. But we can try and even it out by appreciating the little things.

it sounds really corny -but death and illness was a big part of my year last year and I’ve become really negative. I’m sure this way of thinking will help!
