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! 🙂 Feel free to link up and/or do your own Friday Fitness Check In in the comments where you can keep track of the following:
- Fitness: Workouts for the week, how did you feel?
- Food: Did you eat well? Not so much?
- Strength Training: Did you lift weights this week? Which ones?

- Weight: Have you lost weight this week? gained?

Food intake was alright. Nothing to write home about. My dinners varied and I fell off of the eating my first meal within one hour of waking up bandwagon. I need to do that again, it gets my metabolism going and I believe I feel a lot less sluggish. I believe I am adjusting to the constant hunger that comes with building muscle.
I’ve been snacking really well, and even been getting in my greens. The one thing that has slipped dramatically is my water intake. No excuses of course, but it has been a super busy time at work. Usually when I get in the door, I am working, non stop until lunch, and then back at it again. I used to be able to down 60-80oz a day without even blinking. I will get back on it, because not being hydrated is not a good look with weightloss!
The thing about the Jamie Eason Livefit Trainer program is the variety of workouts that are given. You never really do the same workout more than 2 times. The first time left me incredibly sore, however, the second time my body still hurt but not nearly in the same way as the last time.
I am starting to see more definition in certain areas but weird ones. I noticed yesterday that my shoulders are now more defined which is SO interesting because out of all for segments of the program, SHOULDERS is my HARDEST! I am not sure why, I for sure thought it would be legs–legs are hard–but my shoulder workout is really the one that I
curse can’t stand the most. I guess all that lifting is working because my shoulders are becoming more defined. My legs and arms look good, but I am not seeing a major difference in the 3 weeks. Hopefully I can give a before and after next week after phase one.
Right now, I am definitely still in the honeymoon phase of the program but next week is when ISH GETS REAL. 6 days strength training and cardio comes back in the mix 3-4 times a week. I highly doubt that I will be able to make in the gym 6 days (and for 90 minutes mind you, I am a busy girl!) but I will try my best!
