FFCI: Jamie Eason LiveFit Week 3 & 4 – The Calm Before The Storm

Welcome to the Friday Fitness Check In!

  1. Fitness: Workouts for the week, how did you feel?
  2. Food: Did you eat well? Not so much?
  3. Strength Training: Did you lift weights this week? Which ones?
  4. Mind and Motivation: Where are you mentally? What motivated you this week?
  5. Weight: Have you lost weight this week? gained?

  • Chest & Triceps


  • Legs


  • Shoulders and Abs


  • Legs


  • Back & Biceps

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!


It’s time for you to check IN!

Are you good with your water intake?

How are your food/fitness goals coming along this week?

  1. GO GIRL!!! I love those flowered pants – very nice. I can’t wait until next week when “ISH Gets Real!” I had a tough week mentally and my legs are so tired and I have to teach spin soon!! I have to just suck it up and know all this hard work will pay off for my Fall races.

    • Thank you!You know how I love spin but its really hard on tired legs!! You should do what most of my instructors do, yell at us without ever getting on the bike LOL

  2. Fantastic outfit with the red blouse and adorable pants!! I LOVE that your hardest workout is paying off! That’s awesome! (and reading this post made me realize that I’ve fallen off my water drinking. I was doing SO WELL with that earlier this summer, but I’ve fallen off in the past few weeks) I’ll do better! –Lisa

  3. So far this week my running has been more consistent and I think I am up to about 20+ miles. Yay!! It’s pouring rain out now though, so off to the elliptical I go. I don’t like to run in a downpour.

    • You are so awesome Michelle! Love it!! Please don’t run in a downpour, dangerous! (I do appreciate your commitment though :)

  4. That head short of you is so beautiful. I love the pink and purple combination. You look awesome chile. Your shoulder’s might have been the toughest because maybe they weren’t that strong…but enduring those tough work out is paying off and you’re seeing the results. I’m sure your legs were pretty strong to begin with so maybe that’s why you haven’t noticed a huge change. You are definitely doing you thing and very inspiring.

    I fell off the water train this week, but been on track fitness wise.

    • Thanks babe! I think that was exactly it. My shoulders were weak to begin with, it was one area that I NEVER exercised and now i’m feeling it :) Seems like a lot of us stop drinking water, but we are gonna get back on it!

  5. My week hasn’t been quite as good as I would have liked – I really pushed myself with a mega speed workout on Tuesday and have paid the price since. I had to take Thursday off but even this morning my legs are still hurting.

    One thing that I do regularly (and have for 15 years!) is drink water – I keep my big Bubba Keg with me ALL the time and refill it between 5 & 8 times most days. Lots of water!!!

  6. You look great, Nellie! This week was good & bad for me, but I am trying my best to get back on the bandwagon…especially with water intake. I normally drink 60-90oz, but lately I am only getting about 32oz. We can do this!

  7. The constant hunger… that has started up again since I have been running a few times a week. I hadn’t missed it since the last time I was hitting the gym regularly. I was supposed to go and do some circuit training at the gym today but worked on my site instead. Tomorrow I plan on walking the 5k distance to get my body used to it. I signed up for a 5k for October. Tomorrow if I do it I am going to reward myself with a pair of new running pants/leggings. The ones I have been using are cheap and five years old. They distracted me the last time I went running. I do not want to be pulling up my pants in public …its just slowing me down lol Thanks for this Friday check-in

    • I am so excited for your 5k in October! I love athletic gear as a reward, which probably explains why I have too much of it! LOL

  8. I love your weekly summary – and how you focus on all areas. It is really encouraging to read how we all struggle with certain things, fall off the bandwagon etc. I’ve gotten back to running in the past couple of weeks and have been getting out to play tennis. Little by little!
    Leah Davidson recently posted…Pour Your Heart Out: The Worst and Best Day of My LifeMy Profile

    • Thanks Leah, I love tennis! Little know fact, I was captain of my high school tennis team! unfortunately I haven’t played since :/

  9. Sounds like the week I just finished up! I did a lot of subbing this week. Good luck and super for the shoulder progress!

  10. Shoulder definition! I love it. I have some from hoisting Des around, but in your words, nothing to write home about!
    You’ll have to hold Des too. It’s good for the shoulders. And it will happen!
    I’ve been stressed this week – nothing serious. Just deadlines. So my food/drink intake has been abysmal. It’s funny how you think if you skip meals, you’ll lose weight but it doesn’t work that way. It slows metabolism!
    Tamara recently posted…You’re Extraordinary.My Profile

    • Exactly!! I have had to re-train my brain to make sure I eat often because I get so caught up in the daily crazy that I forget.

  11. I can’t imagine being able to get to the gym for 90 minutes 6 times in a week. I can hardly manage 4 times at half an hour! I’ll be rooting for you, though!

  12. work. it. out! i did good with my water intake and tried to get breakfast in this week (i have a new schedule i have to get used to), but i didn’t get any exercise in. i did last week though.

  13. Am I missing something? It looks like you went to the gym six days last week and skipped your rest days. You are making me tired.

    My H2O has also been down. It makes me cranky and my stomach sore so I’m with you on increasung the intake.
    Carli recently posted…My Midlife Crisis Bucket ListMy Profile

    • No, yes, I worked out 6 times this week, mostly lifting barely any cardio except 2 Zumba classes and a 5k last night. Since it was little cardio it was easy to manage. We will do better with the water this week!!
