Jamie Eason's LiveFit - 12 weeks program - Week3

3rd Week Update: Bad Bad week! Only worked out 2 days,No Cardio, Diet was bad :( Daddy came to visit, so lot of family time and sweets from back home :)

Workouts got a bit intense this week. I have done 10 mins cardio for warm up before session and 10 mins cardio after to burn some fat. Weight hasn't come down at all (I guess raised a bit), but I can't blame the program, I am not eating as clean as I should. But I can see a little change in shape, not too noticable though.

Jamie Eason's LiveFit - 12 weeks program - Week2

2nd Week Update: I am very happy. I completed this week without any skips. I am travelling this weekend so I have to skip Monday next week.

I started adding 10 min warmup cardio before workout and 10 min cardio after workout to burn some fat, as its the best time to do cardio after strength training. Program suggests no cardio for 1st phase, but I wanted to do for short periods to boost my calorie burn. I have burned off around 3000 calories a day during the worked out days this week. I ate about 2000 calories a day though.

Jamie Eason's LiveFit - 12 weeks program - Week1

I have been struggling to loose weight after pregnancy. I don't look too fatty, partly because I am tall, but 10 - 15 of those 60 lbs gained during pregnancy are still sticking around even after over 1.5 yrs. I am trying to workout a little, but I am not trying my best. I have tried personal training, but one class a week didn't really help, especially when that's the only time in the week I went to the gym. So when I saw Megan @ Honey We're Healthy (Her blogs Honey We're Home and Honey We're Healthy are part of my frequent blog reads) following Jamie Eason's Live Fit 12 week program, I checked it out.

It is a huge undertaking for me to do this whole program, but it is so well designed with all details, including videos for each of the excercises, I wanted to give it a try. Before even starting, I knew I may not do the program exactly, especially the food, but my goal is to do atleast 50% efficient foodwise and atleast 75% efficient workoutwise. So I started it. On 26th October 2012. I did the excercises given for Day1 alright, though my right shoulder had a problem and the joint was locking every time I lift a dumbbell over my head, so I had to ease into it. I was ok with food until dinner. Its always hard to be in control for Dinner, that too on a friday night.

I will keep posting weekly updates so I can keep track.

DAY-1 /Friday, Oct 26th 2012

Completed Week1Day1 workouts today and not bad with food. As I said I can't follow the diet in the program, but I am cautious of bad foods

DAY-2 /Saturday, Oct 27th 2012

I know, just started yesterday and I already started skipped it. Baby was sick all night so couldn't leave her. Wanted to go to gym when she napped, but I napped with her and the day is gone. Food was bad too. When I am home, I can't eat totally clean, but I should try to opt for healthier options.

DAY-3 /Sunday, Oct 28th 2012

SKIPPED IT......AGAIN..........
I guess I can't do it on weekends. But I have to.

DAY-4 /Monday, Oct 29th 2012

Determined to do this program, I started with Week1 Day2 workouts.

DAY-5 /Tuesday, Oct 30th 2012  

Completed Week1 Day3 workouts.  

DAY-6 /Wednesday, Oct 31st 2012  

I was very sour today because of the Legs workout yesterday, so I wanted to take a rest day. I went shopping during the usual workout time, atleast I got to do some walking.

DAY-7 /Thursday, Nov 1st 2012

Completed Week1 Day4 workouts.

DAY-8 /Friday, Nov 2nd 2012

Week1 Day5 is Rest day according to Program.

DAY-9 /Saturday, Nov 3rd 2012

Week1 Day6 is Rest day according to Program.

DAY-10 /Sunday, Nov 4th 2012

Week1 Day7 is also a Rest day according to Program.

I am glad I could complete first week. Hopefully I got the routine set now and won't break it.
