So I started The Jamie Eason Livefit Trainer program two weeks ago.
I was always intimidated to start lifting in the gym but I love the structure and relative ease of these workouts.
I have to go to the gym at around 1130-12 at night because I am still not too comfortable with working out around people but I am proud of myself for still going.
I missed a couple days due to work and hanging out with friends. But I am excited to say I made up for them and really miss going to the gym when I misses those days.
This program is the one for me!
I am loving my results so far and it’s only been two weeks! I can’t wait to get finished with month one.!
A couple of things I have to improve for the rest of the program:
-My eating. I am not 100% on the meal plan and I don’t want to sabotage my progress so I have to start meal prepping more and eating more vegetables.
-Measurements. I am still debating whether to start measuring.
-My form when lifting. I need to focus more on quality since I am in no rush at the gym
Also I am still debating whether or not to post my 2 week progress pic or if I should wait until month one is complete OR wait until the 3 months are finished a do a big reveal!
Went to the gym tonight and killed it!
I was there for a hour which is long a long time for me.
I ran for 30 minutes on the treadmill and then did leg day.
It was nice to finally have a routine at the gym instead of just hopping on a cardio machine and leaving.
Now I’m eating dinner with my brother and then shower and bed. Classes in the AM ughhhh
Goodnight All! :)
I’m bored. So I’m going to do my August goals (rest of August goals, I’m late lol).
- Be in the 140s by the end of August (149; 3 lb lose in 2 1/2 weeks)
- Run at least 3 times a week
- Contact my dads friend about yoga classes
- Incorporate protein smoothies/shakes into my meal plan
- Eat at least 2 servings of each vegetables and fruit
I think that’s all. My main focus will be on getting back into running and starting yoga. Weight loss is a bonus :)
I know that’s not a HUGE accomplishment to most of you but considering I could barely run a minute when I first started running this is HUGE for me! :)
I can run 10 minutes twice during my runs!
Considering I did not run for a whole month and just recently started again, I am pumped!!!!
Completed couch to 5k week 4 day 1. And burned 358 calories for 37:33 minutes. So not bad. Im starting at week 4 because I was almost done with week 5 a month ago and figure I’ll redo those two weeks and complete the program.
Embarrassing moment: my iPod decided to come out its holder mid run and fly off the treadmill! My old self just starting out probably would have left the gym mortified. But I stopped the treadmill, got my iPod and kept running.
That is a true improvement not regarding weightloss or fitness but my self esteem! I’m glad I stayed an didn’t worry about anyone else judging me and just focused on finishing my run! :)
And do couch to 5k week 5.
And insanity later on in the night.
I gotta get back on track and establish a routine!
Since I have been slacking majorly for about two weeks! And my birthday week is officially over :( I am going to write down some goals for the rest of this month that I hope to complete!
- Complete three weeks of insanity
- Finish Couch to 5k. (Currently on week 6)
- Start yoga on Sunday mornings
- Get back on track with clean eating.
- Breakfast every morning! (since I don’t have morning classes I can cook)
- Only fresh produce as snacks. Slowly eliminate packaged items.
- Cook one new meal twice a week
I think that is good for now!
If I complete these goals I’ll treat myself to possibly hair dye or just getting my hair straightened!
Happy Monday <333
Off to do some grocery shopping!
