I completed the last leg day on Jamie Eason’s LiveFit trainer last night! What a bitter sweet feeling! It was day 78 – Legs and I was in and out of the gym within an hour. The circuits took me about a half hour to complete and then I added an extra 10 minutes on the treadmill just for the heck of it.
This workout was the same as day 71.
I did the circuit 3 times.
|Barbell Squat: 30 reps|
|Leg Press: 30 reps|
|Stiff-Legged Deadlift: 30 reps|
|Barbell Lunge: 30 reps|
|Calf Press in leg press machine: 30 reps|
I haven’t really been following the diet throughout this process, but I did try to follow the low carb rule for yesterday. I had some whole wheat oats for breakfast and then tried to limit carbs throughout the rest of the day. I’m a carb fanatic so this is not easy for me. I went to Subway at lunch with the BF and got a salad. I was starving so I had them put on a bunch of vegetables that I don’t normally eat..plus double meat of course. I got the grilled chicken with sweet onion as the dressing and it was actually pretty damn good. I even tried banana peppers for the first time and I think I liked them 🙂 I’m like a whole new girl lately…trying all this new stuff!
The low carb stuff was hard, but I could tell this morning when I woke up. My tummy seemed flatter and the scale dropped. I’m the lightest weight (but strongest) I’ve ever been. It’s so exciting.
A few people have asked me what I’m going to do after this trainer is completed. Well…I’m going to cruise the Bahamas for 5 days and then when I get back I’m hoping to hang out in phase 2 for a while. I’d like to keep lifting with moderate cardio. I’ll probably create my own plan with phase 2 workouts so that I can have a 4-5 day workout plan. Six days in the gym is just too much for me to maintain!
How many workouts a week can you typically fit in? I have a hard time fitting in 6, so I think 4-5 would be a good balance to a healthy lifestyle but still allow me time for myself.
I saw this shirt online today and thought it was hilarious.
