Workouts 5/25 – 5/31/2014

Well this week didn’t start off well.  Sunday was my rest day and as I stated in my last post I lost 2.5 lbs.  Monday (Memorial day) was suppose to be my leg day and I procrastinated all day til the day was over and the workout was not completed 😦  Therefore, I told myself that tomorrow (Tuesday) was going to be a bitch because I was going to have to add the missed workout on top on the days workout planned!  So Tuesday is going to look like a long workout because, well, it was!  On my weigh in on Sunday, 6/1, I lost 1 lb.  God, the pounds coming off are moving so slowly!!!!!!!!!!  I need to remind myself not to put a lot of value on the scale and to go by how I feel and I can definitely say I feel stronger.  I feel it but I can’t say I see the results yet.  I guess the weight loss would be one of the results that is paying off, but my diet is also a big part of that.  I am eating really clean.  Drinking lots of water!!  Fruits and veggies have become my friend.  I can say I have cut out sugar and pretty much decreased my sodium intake substantially.  You can do all the training you want but if you don’t eat right, you will never see the benefits of your hard work in the gym.  Exercise and nutrition go hand in hand.  Got to do them both!!!  So here is my workout for the week.  Pretty much the same as last week with some few changes.

Oh, by the way, after completing this weeks workout I will have completed Phase 1.  Next week I enter Phase 2 which bumps me up to training 6 days a week!!

The first four weeks are done!!  I made it through Phase 1.  In the original workouts there are lunges and hyperextensions for the back.  Since I have bad knees (5 surgeries) and a bad back (Double low back fusion) I have to side step these exercises and look for alternate movements.  Go to bodybuilding.com and look up Jamie Easons LIVEFIT workout for the EXACT workout plan.

Workouts 5/18 – 5/24/ 2014

This week went well.  At my weigh in I lost 2.5 lbs.  Yay!!!!  Made it through week 3 of my  program.  This week was tough because it had me weight training five times during the week.  There were moments of procrastination, but I pulled myself together and got through it.  Once again the workouts below are 3 sets of 10 to 15 reps.  I have a home gym and this is where I train.  Some of the exercises had to be modified since I didn’t have the equipment.  You can find this workout on bodybuilding.com, Jamie Easons LIVEFIT program.

Eating plan is still the same.  I try and stay between 1200 – 1500 calories.  On days I am not training I stay closer to 1200.  The coconut water, to me, is not very tasty.  I’m still drinking it because I know it is good for me, but I drink it fast to get it down.  Some of you might like it.  I’m just struggling with it.  Chia seeds are my favorite.  The fiber content is great and I love sprinkling it on yogurt.
