Hey Everyone!! I have been so busy and tired, finally, I have time to be on here Since finding out I was pregnant (in september 2012) my family gave me a lot of crap..ugh..so many unnecessary comments coming from their mouths. They would say "you lost all that weight for nothing" or "We watched you get skinny and now we get to see you get fat". So many hurtful comments, all coming from people that dont have the will power to lift heavy or how to stop stuffing junk into their mouths. I definitely miss doing interval running, working out my abs and all the workouts i cant do because i cant lay on my back or belly. I love pregnancy and I am so anxious for baby to arrive. This will be baby #4 for us so its our last. Once she arrives I plan to take a break from working out, heal and just do yoga. After 4 weeks hopefully, i will definitely be in the gym doing what I love. So, keep a look out for my progress...I will continue.
Take care all of you and stay on your goals.
Finally done with the livefit I made some drastic changes to my body..undoing all the harm I have brought to it through the years. My body is not perfect, but I'm healthy..and I write that a lot because its true. I did not reach my weight goal of 121 lbs, but I'm still working towards that goal and once I get there I will decide if I should go lower so until then I'm remaining patient. Tomorrow I start a training of my own (5 weeks) using what I learned..I know my weakness and strengths when it comes to training so I'm really gonna push myself and hopefully lift a little heavier. After my 5 weeks have passed I am planning on training with Stevep78 via internet. I'm still on his meal plan which is great I hear his workouts are brutal so I'm preparing myself for it.
Livefit 12 week program is almost completed!! I have 2 weeks left and I am really proud of myself. I have always been the kind of person to quit, give up, fail..ugh!! So far I have dropped 18.2 lbs of fat and its amazing I always tried to convince myself that I didn't need to change, that my body was okay. After seeing so many changes take place I am now able to see just how bad my body really was
So whats to come when the program is over??
I plan to put together my own workout routine since I understand my body's limits and strengths. I want to focus on lifting heavy (need to increase that weight) if I don't get down to 121 lbs by the time the livefit ends I will continue to work the fat off during those 4 weeks that I'm on my own.
Stevep78's meal plan really helped so I have been considering doing one of his workout routines to get my body really in shape. I need to continue on this path and just keep giving it my all. There have been too many times where I have wanted to give up..so many times I called myself fat, but no more whining or complaining. Time to give myself credit where it is deserved. lol My advice to people wanting to change and stick to it: Take pictures every other week, compare the photos because if your sticking to your meals and exercises..you will notice change and it will motivate you. I'm a very impatient person and what I have to learn (daily) is that these changes take time and if you don't take the time to make em' then you will obviously will never see em'
Good Luck and til' next time
Today marks my 4th week on the Jamie Eason 12wk Livefit and I have stayed with a clean diet (of my own) and noticed amazing changes. I have not stuck with the Jamie Eason diet because it doesn't give specific meal plan so I decided to opt for the Steve Poynter meal plan since its more specific, solid, and tells you when to eat and how to eat lol. I want to continue the training plan from Jamie Eason because she is an amazing role model and with her workout I have felt so good about myself. Once the 12 week program is done and I want to continue on with a different workout routine from some other training program than so be it..I like change I don't know much about this training/nutrition world, but I am learning.
So I notice the ppl on this site are not shy at all about taking their clothes off to show you what they got..hooray for them and they have earned the right to do so I guess. I told my bf that I will not be one of those people that reveal too much, but I am trying to work up the courage to show what I have to work off (fat) lol...I'm thinking about posing in a bikini for the first time in a long time...yikes! I have lost a total of 12 lbs and I am so proud of that, but I'm not gonna be half naked to show what I'm working with lol. I have 26 lbs left to lose and I have given myself til June to do so...I hope I can do this. I'm trying so hard to attack the fat, take it off and keep it off!!!!!! The other day I noticed the black workout pants I wear and like so much look so silly on my changed body ugh...they sag down in place I never thought would go away (butt and thighs). Losing weight is awesome, but it changes your shape and sometimes not in a flattering kinda way. I think I'm losing focus of my original goal. I want to lose the fat, but then I get distracted by my new weirdly shaped body that I try to tone up my butt and thighs and then its gets me crazy confused and I end up doing all kinds of weird exercises that don't make sense. Just like the other day I was "trying" to tone my butt and was doing this exercise and I didn't knw it was an actual exercise til later that same day.. haha to me. Another thing that has me a lil down is my diet..its not concrete. My morning meals are the same, but as the day goes on I switch things up and I dnt knw if its doing me good or its bringing me back dwn. I guess I have to give myself another 4 weeks of hard (amateur) training and clean eating. Oh and a lil update on the bf...he decided to eat right (count calories) and train with me every week..yay!! I cnt wait to see him excited when he sees his hard work pay off then maybe he'll take it all off (fat, I mean) lol.
Okay I'm done ranting...til next time.
I have noticed that once you set a goal it becomes an addiction and soon you form more goals. It keeps you going and I feel like I can do anything. ..some of my goals are small and a bit silly, but that's just me. I feel like for once I am in control and I LIKE IT!!!
