LiveFit Phase1 Wk2

 

 

 

Week 2 done. 

Feeling awesome. 

Not going to lie, tired!


I literally had to take a power nap in the gym parking before going in... yes, I did that.

This week Jamie Eason's program has you work out 4 days and rest 3. She has them set up on a calendar to be back to back with 3 rest days but I found I like taking one of the three rest days during the week. 
This week I worked out Monday-Wednesday, Rested Thursday, Worked-out Friday, and  now off for 2 days. 
Perfect for me because we have a snow storm coming in just for the weekend so I can enjoy being off and not worrying about getting to the gym!


So what's happened so far to my body? 
I can eat lots of protein and not feel sick, I feel stronger--I upped my weights in a few areas, but most of all my stomach is tighter!


I have a soft tummy, not going to lie, but man this week I noticed it was pulling in and lookin' good.


Week weight lifting total: 28,398lbs!!!!
378 more than last week . yes. 

Weight lifting advice:  
  • Form is everything. Take the time to learn the correct form and body posture to maximize your results. 
  • Bodybuilding.com has a video for pretty much every workout out there. Educate yourself.

As for food this week: I've created some amazing, high protein salads!

I am working on post dedicated to my high protein creations that will include their ingredients so you can enjoy them as well. Keep posted!


For now, here is some food advice:


  •  Find protein in other things besides meat: black beans, chickpeas, avocados, quinoa, greek yogurt, and cottage cheese just to name a few of my favorites; Have fun and be creative.
These will keep you full and add variety to your meals.
