Welcome to the Friday Fitness Check In! I am using this as a bit of a fitness diary to keep my goals in check while sharing exactly what I am doing with you (since I get so many questions about it!

Food was better than normal this week, I totally had an off the rail day on Monday when I met the bestie for lunch, and I hadn’t seen her in a while so I was eating and talking and eating and listening. I should have made a better choice
blt and fries anyone? But I made the crucial mistake of showing up at the restaurant starved. If I had a small snack even an hour before, I would have been golden.
I am super excited by this Jamie Eason program, and although I am not eating nearly as clean as she suggests, she has some really awesome recipes that include lots of protein to help my lil sore muscles recover.
The amazing folks over at bodybuilding.com were generous enough to reach to out me and provide me with the supplement pack to assist me while I am on the program. So I totally plan to bake some fun protein filled goodies!
Can we say ouch? I am sore–pretty much everywhere. Last Friday I couldn’t lift my arms for hugs, and on Tuesdays after leg day I was walking like an old lady. Not cute! However, I have never enjoyed a program more! I am a cardio head more than anyone but something about the iron…I’m in love. I literally pop out of my bed because I am so excited to get my lift on.
I’ve always been strength training so doing the exercises is nothing new, but the regimen of sets and hitting specific target muscles is very new to me. I am trying new machines, and no longer concerned about how much I burned. I am now asking myself, do I have enough weight on the machine?
I seriously love it. I’d be a bodybuilder if it didn’t mean giving up
my favorite greasy food things I like to eat!
