What I Have Been Doing

I decided it's time to let you in on what I have been doing. If you have been reading for some time now, you know I have been on this weight loss train for a hot minute. I am on a mission to lose 30 lbs by October 1st. Now that we have booked 2 different trips for the end of the year, this is very important to me. Recently, I started the Jamie Eason Live Fit trainer program. (Right after the hubby came home from his interview)



I completed phase 1. I can't say I am extremely proud of my results because to be honest there wasn't really any huge results. 

Cheesecake - ate it! 
Dr. pepper - Drank It! 
Ice Cream - inhaled it! 
didn't really eat well - that was me! 
Skipped last week because I was extremely busy - felt like poop. 

So the only person I can blame for my results not happening is myself. By results, I mean the scale hasn't moved. It actually went up at the end of Sunday. I know the inches are falling off though because some of my clothes are starting to fit much better. (well before Sunday it was) 

Yesterday I started phase 2. I have a different mind set this time around. I am determine to do this. The only plan I have is next week while I am away - I will push that week back so it will take me an extra week to complete the 12 weeks. The one thing I love about this phase is the cardio. My goal is to do the full 30 minutes of the cardio but in a HIIT format. We own a treadclimber & I want to use this for the cardio & or the stair master. Also, everything I have read says to do it first thing in the morning and break up the cardio with the weight lifting. Advice on this? 

If everything goes well, I can beat this sickness that decided to take over yesterday. I will complete this program just in time for Memorial day weekend. Currently, my plan is to immediately repeat the program but focus on the plan exactly & have my sister with me. 


The part I struggle with the most. I am currently on my fitness pal tracking everything I put into my mouth including my vitamins and detox. I am hoping to use this the entire phase to help me realize what I am eating. I am trying to eat within my macros and calories. 

There you have it. What I have been up to on this hot mess train express. I am going to try to get some pictures done (since I failed at that in phase 1) Also, I have a facebook page that follows my journey or you can follow along on instagram

Happy Tuesday!

When I did the program I did the cardio immediately after the weight training. I just couldn't split it up either and that worked out for me.
