It’s been awhile…

17 Jul

Wow, I didn’t realize it had been so long since the last time I posted.  A lot has happened.

I started the Jamie Eason Live Fit program and got through about 9 weeks of it, but I didn’t really follow it properly.  I kept eating what I wanted and drinking beer and just having a good ol’ time.  I kept up with the workouts like crazy, but I just wasn’t seeing the results I wanted.  Sure, I saw some muscle gain, but I wasn’t losing any fat or weight so I ended up giving up.  This is not to say that the program wasn’t good, this is my inability to follow it correctly.  I knew that if I had followed the eating plan as well as the workout plan I would be much closer to my goal.  12 weeks just seemed sooooo long!

So, like I said, I gave up…but just the plan, not the goal.  My husband suggested that I take a look at this book called “Making the Cut” by Jillian Michaels.  He said there is a quiz to find out what your metabolic type is and a complete plan to follow.  I figured, what the heck, right?  It’s a 30 day plan.  This is much better for someone who can’t seem to commit to any plan for a full 12 weeks.  22 days ago I began this plan at 136lbs.  Over the past 3 weeks I haven’t had any caffeine, salt, and I have stuck to the menu plan exactly (although I’ve incorporated a protein shake after my workouts to up my calorie and protein intake).  I’ve also done every single workout thus far and guess what?!  I’m getting results.  Today I weighed in at 125.4, a 10.6lb loss and I’m even starting to get some abs! Check them out:

This is just the beginning…

At the end of the 30 days, I’m going to take an updated progress photo and I think I’ll share my before (eek!) and current photos and then keep posting every 30 days.  Can’t wait to see the difference!
