LiveFit update

Friday, May 04, 2012

I am on day 12 of the Jamie Eason LiveFit plan and doing great!
I really can't believe it's been 12 days since I started this program. The time is really flying by! I love the workouts and the fact that there is a daily plan set for me, which is keeping me accountable.

This week was a little challenging with Riley fracturing his elbow. On Sunday the little ginger monkey was trying to climb up and over our privacy fence and fell. OUCH! Poor guy! He has his hard cast on now and is feeling much better!! I stayed with him Monday and skipped my workout. Tuesday he was doing better so I did my ST at home then got back to the gym on Wednesday so as of yesterday I was all caught up. I was a little sore but less sore than when I started this program 12 days ago.
I also noticed that running seems to be a little easier for me (it has NEVER come easy to me). I went out and did 3 miles on Wednesday and felt great minus a side stitch. I got a one mile warm up then bam. It hit right before I started the sprint intervals but I kept going. Like my friend Kelly said "nobody ever died from a side stitch" lol!
I ran 2.5 miles this morning at a very comfortable pace of 11:12

I am down to 157 again which I am thrilled of! I also noticed that my clothes are starting to fit a tad different. My hubby said he noticed my tummy getting smaller! YAY! I really want to work on losing the weight in my thighs, hips and tummy. The rest I am working on toning. I am accepting this as a life style change in the fact that when the LiveFit plan is complete that I keep moving forward with my strength training.

OH!!! My hubby has lost 25lbs!! He is FINALLY looking at my healthy habits and taking them on. He cut out sodas and sweet tea. He is drinking crystal light and unsweetened tea. He is opting for more salads and lean protein and staying away from fried foods. He is down from a 42 to a 40 and his XL shirts are getting loose!! I am so proud of him!!

I found out yesterday that I have to move my office. I am both happy and bummed about it. My normal commute is 26 miles one way. My new office will be maybe 8 miles one way. I will also be closer to the kids schools and my horse. The down side is that I am moving to the second floor that has nobody else in it. I am on the second floor now but I have people to say hey to. I will be up stairs, all alone and my printer/copier/scanner/fax machine is down stairs so can you imagine how many times I will be going up and down stairs???? OMG!!!! Well, that COULD be a good thing, right? Added cardio and hill training?? hmmmm...
I guess we shall see.
OH! and today is my 10 year anniversary with the bank and they kick me out of my office? What a way to say thanks. lol!! I have to submit the work orders to have my lap top, docking station, phone lines and such moved so it won't be today but it will be before the end of the month.

Well. That's all I have for now. Happy Friday!!

    Oh, poor Riley. Hope he heals quickly. I once worked in an entire building alone most of the time. It was kinda creepy and totally lonely. Hope you are able to interact more than that. On the bright side, my sister just retired. She'd been working on the third floor and had to go up and down for printer, copier, meeting with clients, etc. Says she now has to start moving a lot more at home to make up for the stairs at work. So this just may be a supplement to your new LiveFit lifestyle. Hope your weekend is going good.

    HOORAY for Mike! So glad to see your healthy habits are rubbing off on him!

    And I'm so glad that you are loving this new program and seeing results so soon! YAY!

    As for the office move, that sounds GREAT! Much less time commuting AND all that extra exercise walking up and down the stairs! AWESOME!!! I would LOVE working alone all day, but I am not really a people person. Larry likes to say that I have a heart of a child.... in a jar on my desk! LOL!

    Speaking of which, I hope your little ginger heals fast!

    Have an awesome weekend!

    Girl - both you and Mike are doing awesome. You are such a good influence.

    Sorry to hear about the office move, but use those stairs to you advantage. You will be awesome on hills.

    That plan sounds awesome! I will have to check out once I'm done with this one - it's already getting a little boring.

    I'm glad Riley got his cast on and it's helped with the pain. Poor little guy! I'd be willing to bet that he is finding ways around that cast, and is just as active as ever! LOL
    I'm so glad you are loving LiveFit as much as I am! I'm so proud of you!

    AND Super DOUBLE YAY for Mike noticing the changes in you and commenting on it and for Mike losing weight too! Wooo Hooo!! Robbie doesn't comment on it anymore when he sees changes in me. He said as soon as he does, I quit. LOL. I guess this time, the results must be good, because he's keeping his mouth shut. I guess he doesn't want me to quit. LOL

    Sueann, I have been following Riley's ordeal this week and felt so badly for him. So happy he is feeling better.

    Mike is shrinking! That is great news and it is so wonderful that he is inspired by you.

    Have a great day!
