Well, today I officially started the Jamie Eason LiveFit Trainer. I used Sunday (yesterday) to prep my food (rice, veggies, meat, etc) so that I could focus fully on the trainer this week, and keeping on track with my meals and my workouts.
Some things I noticed today with W1D1 (chest/tris):
– I was disappointed with my strength. Previously, I was lifting much more than the numbers I recorded today. I know that being pregnant and not working out for a few months definitely had something to do with it, but I was very surprised at how much these numbers have decreased. I hope that I can get my strength up to “normal” quickly.
– I need to get use to the “change” of the exercises. I am use to doing different exercises with different weights and different reps and sets. I normally wouldn’t put pushups into the middle of my weightlifting. I would usually use them as a warmup and include a different weightlifting exercise in their place, so when I saw them listed as an actual exercise in the trainer, I thought “Oh, this should be easy.” WRONG!!!!
– Although right now, I have a new baby (5 weeks) and we have nearly a full gym set up in our basement, I realized I need to get to the gym for workouts because there are just too many distractions at home. I am going to try to plan to get up early and get to the gym before my husband goes to work in the morning. The only problem is my baby runs my schedule right now! If she’s hungry, I’m the only one to help her! And, if we’ve had a rough night, getting up early to go to the gym is the last thing that will be on my mind. I’m hoping I can figure out some kind of routine.
Another issue I’ve noticed is that I am constantly feeling hungry. I’ve followed the nutrition guidelines of the trainer pretty closely, but I still feel hungry. I’m thinking it has something do to with breast feeding and the amount of calories I need for that. This is something I need to look in to!
Anyways, so far, I’m on track with the trainer. I will be taking weekly pictures and posting them to keep myself accountable!
Anyone else done or is starting Jamie Eason’s LiveFit Trainer???
