Today is Friday Eve, who else is excited?
I am so ready for the weekend. I know what I want my weekend to look like and to be honest, it probably will go exactly as planned. Me + couch + tv = great weekend with some cleaning and house work that need to get done.
Today isn't about my weekend plans [that's tomorrow] this is about the awesome new love I have found. The love for the gym & working out.
I have officially completed week 1 of 12 from the Jamie Eason Live Fit trainer program found on bodybuilding.com
Why? You ask
I made a promise to myself to weight what I did before I met Alex. Than I started thinking some more of that and I think 5'3 & 105 is way too small for me. Yes I was skinny but I don't think it's healthy with that said I set a goal to 30 lbs by my next birthday [October 2014] That means I have 324 days exactly to get to business and no time for slacking off and messing up. Setting goals is the best way to stay accountable but only if you tell others to hold you to that. [I am telling you all to stay accountable and to prove to myself I can do this]
Yes I will be doing blog post updates as it is now apart of my life and how could I not blog about it? After all it is my space and my life to blog about and write. I also made a facebook page to help keep the motivation. I currently do not have progress pictures. I will be taking before pictures to prove to you how this program works. I also want to be able to share my recipes I will be creating and my meal plans just remember I am NO doctor nor am I any type of fitness personal. I am just trying to do what I think works for me and get my mind and body back to where I want it to be.
The best part is this lovely lady is doing it with me and always sends me the most encouraging texts.
We're virtual workout buddies!
I am extremely sore in my chest and arms. There is no cardio in the first month of this program. [i have been doing 5 mins on the stair master though] I have began to eat healthier and is a constant struggle as I live with a 5 year old and some other people so I can't just keep healthy foods in the house. Yes I realize I will be doing this program through the holidays but that just gives me more push to work harder and eat right. I can still enjoy all the holidays and family time without all the calories.
My legs are on recovery from my squats yesterday.
I am hoping for a much better 2nd week and more progress. I am hoping this will begin my journey to lose weight and a new me.
