Day 9 is done... back and biceps. I was SO not feelin' it this morning. Did not want to get up. Got to the gym and did not want to work out. My biceps were toast by the end, which was a little unexpected because I wasn't working all that much harder or lifting that much heavier than before. I guess my body is just tired.

I got a full 8 hours of sleep last night, so I don't even know what the deal is, unless it's just my crazy busy schedule and the fact that I am so drained from studying constantly and never really relaxing. I literally spent my ENTIRE weekend reading and working on school work. I've somehow managed to get WAY behind and am playing catch-up.
Hopefully before the end of the week I can be in a good place and actually rest this coming weekend. That would be nice. :)

Have a great day!

Day 4 today - Shoulders and abs! I've been writing the weight down that I used in the last round on my workout log and WOW.. what a difference this time around.

So now, I'm at the end of week 1! It's hard to imagine 3 days off! LOL

Is it weird that I feel like I will lose everything I've gained if I take that extra day off? I know I won't, but it's just so strange after going every single week day for weeks on end.

ok, so during the last round of LiveFit.... drumroll please.....
I lost:
4 pounds
8 FREAKING INCHES ALL OVER. I'm not gonna do the breakdown of where it all was, but it was a little from everywhere.
I am VERY happy with the results!

Round 2 us underway.

I totally understand what you are saying. You have no idea how many runs I have skipped or how many weekend workouts I have skipped because I didn't want to get out of bed when Chris is there. And it's still that way on weekends. I'm getting better about it, but it's still an issue. The morning workouts aren't as big a deal, because he's still sleeping, if he's even there... we aren't together as much during the week since school started back and my daughter moved back in... He thinks "Why should I stay over? You go to bed at 7pm.. what am I going to do? Hang out with Ashley?" LOL

I'm totally looking forward to hearing your results-- I'm sure they're great. I need to be reminded how well this works. I'm tired of being over-whelmed by responsibilities that this gets cut. I know things will get as calm as they will ever be in two weeks. So I really just need to prioritize. I think I will set up some reminder that flashes on my computer screen and ask my boyfriend to help with the priorities a bit. he loves routine, he's just made his routine coffee and TV in the morning instead of coffee and a walk or yoga or anything that let's me move. His work shift starts so late that I feel like I'm already behind when he leaves.
Nothing but excuses, but it comes down to choosing my health rather than spending time with him if he won't do things with me.

Sometimes, it's just hard!! Trust me, I know!! I miss my home gym too. When I moved out of my house and into an apartment, I had to give up ALL of my exercise equipment. I just didn't have the room for it. Now, it's go to the gym, do a workout DVD at home, or run or walk outside. Those are my choices. I have no treadmill, no weight bench... nothing that I HAD. I miss it. But, I guess for me, it was definitely easier to skip workouts when I didn't have to make myself leave the house to do them... LOL

Today was day 82. Shoulders.. AND The last day of weights for this round. Tomorrow.. that last day of "1 hour of cardio". I don't know yet what I'll do since I'm supposed to be at the boyfriend's house. I guess I'll have to get out and do a run/walk around his neighborhood... or get up and drive the half hour to Planet Fitness. Ugh.

Sunday, I plan to do grocery shopping and food prep for the new round. I do want to stick to the food plan a little better in the next round. I will also do the final weigh in and measurements on Sunday for this round. I know I've definitely made progress! I can't wait to see the final results!!!

The food prep never happened. Talk about poor time management. I was engrossed in some work-related projects I wanted to catch up on and also distracted by college football. and of course, the last minute invitations to hang out with friends. Who wouldn't want to hang out with friends over planning food. Well frankly, by that time, I had totally forgotten and just skipped the weekend workouts entirely.
No good excuse, I could have chosen to do anything.
That's what is weird this time. My choices. Never struggled this much to commit. Now I'm feeling like repeating week 2 AGAIN because I just don't feel like I have been consistent at all. I miss my home gym.

Just a few more days, and I'M DONE... well.. until I start over. LOL.

I printed off all of the workout logs yesterday to start over. And then I went back and looked at the weight I was using at the beginning of phase 1 this time. I was like "WOW! It's going to be a lot different this next time around...." LOL
I was still using 5 lb weights for some stuff then. I even noted in the notes section "I can't wait until I don't have to use 5's anymore!"
I don't remember the last time I used a 5# weight now. I guess phase 1.... But then again, when I went back this time, I hadn't really worked out in a year. LOL.

Should be interesting to see how different it actually is in the next round.... and how much progress I make.
I SO need to work on my food issues. How was the weekend food prep? Food prep is one thing I haven't had time to do.. My nutrition is one thing that I need to work on next time around... it's really just a time management issue for me.

OMG that's Fantastic! I remember the first time I did the program, I didn't know we *weren't* supposed to be doing circuits the whole time. I got to week 10 and went,huh... LOL
Now I sometimes do circuits when I'm short on time the other weeks.

I love how you get up at the same time. I suck at morning workouts, but I have the flexibility to work out mid-day because I work from home.

Doubling up on workouts today because I missed a day already this week! bah! But I have a great open weekend to prep food and catchup to move forward. Yay!

Day 74 is done.... Arms/Abs/Cardio. The Circuits are great!!! The workouts still sufficiently kick my butt, but they don't take NEARLY as long. I'm super happy about that. I don't sleep any later in the mornings.. still get up and go to the gym at the same time.. but it's really nice to not feel rushed. I get to do my cardio without worrying about whether I am going to have time to do it or not.
One more week, and then it's back to the beginning... :)
I know the workouts will be much shorter then. There's supposed to be no cardio.... and the workouts are shorter in and of themselves... but honestly, I'm afraid to allow myself to sleep later and go to the gym later to account for it. If I do, I may get used to it and make it harder to get back into getting up so early again.

Back to work now. Have a great day!

I brought my dumbells this weekend but they are still in the car. I told myself I would get them out when I was about to work out. But obviously that hasn't happened yet. *sigh*

I've been at a conference in Palm Springs- non-stop schedule from 8-9pm, so needless to say I didn't get any workouts in the last 3 days. I had thought about bringing my dumbbells, which I think is a good idea MM, as I could have snuck in 20-minutes before or after the conference and wish I had... something is better than nothing...

Day 68 today. Back/Biceps/Abs and sprints. The sprints were more like run/walk intervals today.... lol
I'm just plain tired.
But it's done.

I usually don't do the Saturday workouts, because I'm at my boyfriend's and it's too far to get to the Planet Fitness in Macon from his house in Gray (about a half hour drive) and I just don't feel like doing that... so I skip it and enjoy 2 days of rest.

This week, however, I am thinking about taking my dumbells with me and modifying the workouts some to do it at his house. I thought about doing the same thing last weekend, but with it being his birthday, I decided against it. Considering how much I ate and drank, I probably should have. I needed it. LOL

Anyway, that's all I've got for now.

Happy Friday!

Day 67 today. Hamstrings and Glutes. Crazy good workout, even though I'm really tired of working legs. LOL.

I am almost done with week 10 now, and moving on to the circuits next week. It seems so strange to almost be done!! But I have to say, I am seeing some amazing results with this round, even with the cruise and the bad eating at times.

I was blow drying my hair when I was getting ready for work at the gym this morning, and said to myself, as I was holding the blow dryer up by my head "DAMN... Look at that definition in my shoulders and arms!!" Holy cow! I don't think they have ever looked this good!

I'm still not seeing the loss I want to see around my midsection, but that's always going to be a problem area for me after having three children. It is what it is. I just keep working. It IS improving. And that's saying something.

I survived day 65. Thank God for no jump rope today. ;)

I woke up with a seriously upset stomach, but I went to the gym anyway... I survived the workout without any stomach pain or any issues, but as soon as I got to work, it started hurting again. If I make it through the work/school days it will be a minor miracle. Wanna-be chef/nutritionist boyfriend is telling me I need ginger to settle my stomach. My "witty comeback" was that I don't really keep any ginger on-hand in my office fridge.
I'll be glad when he actually does get to open the restaurant he wants to open. Maybe he'll be too busy with that to tell me how to eat. LOL

Added bonus this morning: A work friend from another building goes to the same gym I do and we both go before work, so I see him there several times a week. Usually, though, I'm already done with weights and have moved on to cardio by the time he gets there. With the phase 3 workouts getting longer, I was still in the weights area when he got there and still working out hard. Later, when I got to work, I got an IM that said "Girl, you are killin' it in the gym. Whatever you're doing, keep it up! You're looking great!"

It always feels good to get compliments!

Chef b.f. even worse! LOL!
YAY on Day 64.. I just finished Day 10/15... missed shoulders last week and not sure I feel like squeezing it in. Today should be backs and Bi's again-- I'm at a conference and the condo gym doesn't have hand weights, which I was counting on. I may have to do week 3 twice if I don't feel I do enough this week.
Yes! on the re-start when you're done. I was never in as good of shape as the time I repeated LF after finishing. I think re-calibrating your strength and maximums is cool and its nice to take the break from cardio again after finishing those killer Phase 3 workouts. Sometimes I re-started in week 3 of Phase 1 instead of doing all 4 weeks because weeks 1 and 2 seem like the 'ease in' weeks- maybe if you don't really take ANY time off. Going back to 4 times a week will seem like a breeze...

I'm not following her nutrition plan exactly, but I am trying to eat as clean as I can... it's not easy with a boyfriend who is an aspiring chef. His cooking is AMAZING and he does love food. The fact that Friday was his birthday meant that we were definitely going out for good food. It also meant that there would be "celebrating" involved. So yes, I drank waaaay too many high calorie drinks over the weekend. Back on track today, though.
I am planning on making her protein bars on Thursday (an off day from school when I get off work earlier...). I usually do it on the weekends, but didn't have time this weekend, with his birthday and all.

Today was the start of week 10 for me. Day 64 is done: Legs. Again. I swear it seems like every other day is leg day! And I am the world's worst jump roper. LOL

After work and school today, I'll have about 2.5 hours to get my gym bag re-packed, eat dinner and do homework before time for bed. My life is chaos for the next 15 weeks.

I do, however, plan to re-start another round of LiveFit after this one is over. I may take a week or so off before I do... but I will do it. I'll still go to the gym, but I think I will need a little time to recover before starting it up again.

Right now, I am trying to decide whether to start in Phase 2, or start in Phase 1 with heavier weights. I may also try to follow the nutrition plan a little more closely the next time around.

OMG the sleep! I forgot how well I slept while doing this program.
I crashed out by 9:20 last night and slept all night.
ahhh

Now, the psych up for Back and Bi's. Not too hard, I enjoy this one a lot-- just going to time it for a protein shake lunch...

Still trying to work up to committing to the food-- not because I don't like it, but the planning time and the commitment now that I live with a boyfriend seems more difficult. Right now I'm sticking to as close as I can with what I have available...

Day 58 done! Back and Biceps. I only had time for the ST part of the workout, since the workouts are getting extremely long now... so I am hoping to get to the gym after work this afternoon to get the cardio portion in. We shall see. I have homework and reading that needs to get done this evening too.

It was pretty easy to get up at 3am this morning... considering I was so exhausted last night that I was in bed at 7pm! It didn't even matter that it was still sunny outside.

Hey Becki! Great to have you back! Sometimes life gets a little much for those killer Phase 3 workouts. Don't get discouraged though-- even if you have to spread them out a little bit here and there (maybe switching your rest day to accommodate your heaviest work load day), you'll feel a great accomplishment getting through the last 4 weeks of the program.

Me, I'm still in the part where I have to psych myself up to get to the gym after the weekend off. Yikes.
Chest Day, here I come!

Hi everyone!
After going on the cruise and getting off track, I did a few days of phase 2 workouts when I got back and then started back with phase 3 today. It was brutal, but I felt pretty great when I was done!
Today was also my first day back in school for the new semester, so if I can keep up with my workouts early in the morning, work all day, and keep up with the school workload it will be a minor miracle... especially now that I have seen the syllabi and know what the workloads will be. *gulp*

Happy Monday!

Hey Lowfatfoodie, nice to see you restarted. Will be great to have some company! :-)

This is a great program!

Just finished week 6.

I have travel coming up again next week so I will have to take a few days break, though I will keep up with the cardio.




My weight is perfect. I only need to grow six inches taller.

Well, I finally Dit it! I started LiveFit again! Today I finished Week 1. I was even afraid to say I was doing it in case I got sidetracked. Whew! Feels good to be back on a program. Its been 2 years since I last consistently worked out, so its like starting over again, but I don't mind.

Great job SlenderMama! I think had random weeks that I felt I wasn't changing. I know I started seeing some major size changes around week 7 or 8.

Started week 6 this morning

It is really hard to workout 6 days a week. 5 days would have been fine...but this is really tiring me out.

Weight loss seems to have plateaued

Started Phase 2 today.

I had to take a week long break after Phase 1 due to travel. I wasn't able to fit in any exercise during this time, so it was really nice to get back in the gym again.

I got back home late Saturday night and planned to re start the program Sunday morning but that didn't happen. Instead I had a lazy day catching up on laundry and binge watching Netflix.

There was three quarters of a flourless dark chocolate almond cake in the fridge. I am sorry to say that I must have eaten at least four slices of that on Sunday. I froze the rest of the cake this morning.

I think exercise gives you self discipline, laying around on the couch leads to downfall!



My weight is perfect. I only need to grow six inches taller.

I decided to do the first few days, at least, of Phase 3 before I leave for the cruise. I started today with Day 57! What a great workout! I forgot how much the jump rope kicks my butt.. and how bad I am at jumping rope. LOL

Tomorrow's workout is the first time with the sprints. I think I will take your advice and try the HIIT some other way, LFF. Thanks! I have done the sprints for the full 30 minutes before, but it's never been easy and I always thought I was going to die. We'll see how it goes tomorrow. The workouts get longer and longer, and I have limited time in the mornings anyway, with having to be in the shower by a certain time and out the door by a certain time to get to work... so I'll do what I can in the time I have left after I finish the first part of the workout.

Have a great week everyone!

Good luck on the cruise! I found a great way to avoid weight gain on a cruise. a) Walk everywhere and NEVER take the elevator (yep stairs, stairs, stairs) and b) go dancing EVERY night until close. I had 30,000 steps a day average on my last cruise. Drank like a fish and still did NOT gain.

My suggestion about Phase 3 is to find some *other* HIIT exercise that doesn't aggravate your knees as much. Sprints are just an example of HIIT, but you can make biking, elliptical, swimming, jump rope, burpees, etc all into a high intensity interval workout. Check out some tabata training examples. Its really about the hard-burn. As long as you're doing some intense cardio of some fashion, you will benefit. My first shot through Live Fit, I never managed a full 30-minutes of sprints (usually 12-20) because I had horrible shin splints... but it still worked to do what I could and do some other form of cardio .

Do whatever you can that doesn't put your knee at risk for lifting...

I finished up Phase 2 today - kind of did a combo thing for today's and tomorrow's workouts since I'll be at my boyfriend's house and won't be able to make it to the gym tomorrow morning.
I'm not sure what I am going to do about Phase 3 right now.... I know my knee can't handle the sprints just yet, so I'm seriously considering doing the regular phase 3 workouts and keeping the cardio at the regular phase 2 "30 minutes of cardio". Or just try the sprints a time or two and see how it feels.
But... next week (Thursday), I also leave for my cruise with my daughter and won't be able to do the full week of workouts or start the following week (I'll be back Monday afternoon). I plan to work out on the ship when I can, since there is a fitness room, but I'm not sure what equipment they have, and I don't want to spend a lot of my vacation working out... LOL.

Either way, I'll figure it out. The biggest goal right now is to not gain back what I've lost so far during the 4 days on the cruise. emoticon emoticon

I did lose weight on Phase 1 ....but I stuck to three meals and did do a little cardio (not much - maybe twice a week at most). ST is definitely more enjoyable than plain cardio.

Everyone is different in Phase One, but its not uncommon to not lose WEIGHT during Phase One. Its important to take measurements at the beginning, so you can gauge results in INCHES. Yes, your clothes will fit better.

There's a post I created a while back of a LOT of alternates, as I had no gym membership my first run through LF. It might help:

I am on Day 3. I have been saying for years that I need to start lifting weights, but as an avid runner, I never had much impetus. Now the cardio no longer seems to be working the way it did, thus...I have avoided the gym the last two days with at home modifications, but I can't figure out how to modify the legs, so I guess I'm using the ol' rec center punch card today.

I've heard weight loss is slow or nonexistent during Phase One. Anyone have experience with this?

Completed Phase1 on Saturday morning. Its done me a world of good, I feel a lot fitter and generally tightened up.


I am really looking forward to Phase 2. Unfortunately I'll be traveling most of this week, so no idea how I am going to fit my work outs without access to a gym!

I'm working my way through week 7 now... Today was Legs. And my knee screamed at me. The walking double lunges were a joy, let me tell you. But it's done and I made sure to not stress it more than it can handle.

I am supposed to be somewhere in week 6, but got off track with the holiday and quitting smoking (The Chantix has messed up my sleep and I've had trouble getting up to go to the gym)... so I pushed back week 6 until next week.
I finally made it to the gym yesterday, but I'm doing some fill-in workouts (not LiveFit) until Monday.
Today's cardio was an interval elliptical workout.. it was pretty great. And I did legs. So doing cardio after legs always makes me feel bad ass.. since I usually don't do that.

Happy Friday!

Today was Day 30 - Chest/Abs/Cardio. It was a day late, thanks to missing the gym yesterday morning... but it got done.
Now, I'm trying to figure out how to get all of my workouts in this week, or which one to skip... because one of those things is going to have to happen. I am already going to have to modify and miss Saturday's Legs workout, because I am at my boyfriend's on weekends and can't get to the gym. Soooo, this should be interesting.

Phase 2 is always when it starts to get a little tricky when you have a crazy, busy life.

Officially started Phase 2 today. Today was Day 29 - I worked Back and did cardio (elliptical). Didn't have time to get a full 30 min in, but I did get 24 in before I had to hit the shower and get ready for work. Tomorrow, I'm aiming to get up a little earlier to have time to get the full 30 min of cardio done. I went to bed a little later then usual last night and had a really crappy night of sleep. I'm taking Chantix to quit smoking, so I'm pretty sure that's why my sleep was all jacked up. Weird though, because the night before, I slept the sleep of death for 11 solid hours. NOT like me to sleep that long!
Last night, it was fitful and I tossed and turned all night. Also, NOT like me.

Day 25 - Legs - Done! Pretty good workout today. I can't believe that tomorrow is my last day of Phase 1!! Looking forward to Phase 2, except for the "walking barbell double lunges from hell" that start in week 7. I may call them that, because I really hate them... but I love what they do for me so I guess I should be nice.
Heck, I don't even like the regular walking lunges though. Why would I be nice about double ones.. LOL

But it's all good. I will continue the plan and keep on keepin' on.

Day 23 is done. Almost done with phase 1.
I'm excited to be finishing up phase 1 soon... but also a little concerned about having enough time at the gym in the mornings for the extra cardio. I do sometimes do a little now, if I finish up my ST and have time, but I NEVER have 30 minutes. That means I am going to either have to start getting up even earlier or do the cardio in the afternoons after work.
I would much rather do it in the mornings, but it's SO hard to get up so early already!! When I was doing LiveFit before, I always had time. I know I must have been at the gym earlier. But I went to a different gym, and it was closer to my house, so the longer drive is part of the problem... plus I am pretty sure I haven't been getting up quite as early as I did back then.

I have less than a week to figure it out. But figure it out, I shall.

I completed day 19 today - Shoulders and Abs. I got a little off track for a few days ... skipped last Friday just because I woke up and the alarm was not my friend and I went back to sleep. Then Chris came home over the weekend and I took a few days off to hang out with him. I got back on track in the middle of the week, and now I'm back to the gym every morning by 4am.
I don't really like going that early, but I do like getting there when it's not packed. I like not having to wait for equipment of fight for space in the free weight area. It's nice in the early mornings.

I am ready for the weekend and a couple of rest days. Chris and I are planning to go for a nice long ride tomorrow. The weather is supposed to be a little cooler than the 100 degree temps we've been having, and we haven't been on the bike at all this year... so it's going to be a good weekend!!

Be safe and have a great weekend!

Made it to the gym this morning. for day 16, (so obviously I didn't double up and do it last night. I'll just have to stay a day behind for a minute.) I had a great workout, despite the fact that my booty is ridiculously sore. Damn those walking lunges, anyway!

I skipped the gym yesterday due to oversleeping and a weather-induced migraine. Still have a slight headache this morning, but managed to still go to the gym. I did yesterday's Day 15 (Legs) this morning, and plan to double up today to get back on track. I'll do as much of Day 16 as I can do without gym equipment (with many modifications) at home tonight in order to be back on track for tomorrow morning.

I'm having a rough week so far, between the migraine and Chris being gone. But I'm hanging in there. I'm just REALLY ready for the weekend. And I need a beach vacation. I'm just sayin.

Have a great Tuesday!

I overslept and missed the gym this morning. First time that's happened since I started going back. I was pretty bummed. But I won't skip the workout completely. I will either fight the crowd and go to the gym after work, or I'll do it at home.
*sigh*

I know how hard it is with moving! Trust me!! I moved the last 2 years in February! LOL. I'm determined to not make it an annual event now! Unless the boyfriend decides it's finally time to move in together, then MAYBE. emoticon

Got up and went to the gym again this morning, but I sooo didn't want to. I went to bed super early last night and I was sleeping SO good. But I did it anyway. Tomorrow is leg day. I love leg day (because I'm a weirdo).... but I'm actually thinking about skipping it. I know I don't need to, but Chris leaves for Pennsylvania for like 10 days tomorrow afternoon, and he's staying over tonight, and that extra hour and a half in bed just seems too good to pass up. But then again, we'd both be sleeping, so would I be giving up the gym for nothing, when we will be together at work all day anyway? emoticon

Decisions, decisions.....

Oh, and another thing... I feel like I've gained SO much weight since I started back on the program. Granted, my eating has not been according to the plan, and has definitely been less than stellar... but dang! My clothes are all so much tighter than they were!!
I've decided to use the time that he is gone to get my eating under control. He's got a lot to do with my food problems. Damn him and his good cooking anyway!

ok, enough of my rant this morning! Have a great Wednesday!

After 4 day off (from work and working out), I was back in the gym this morning for Day 8 - and my triceps were TOAST by the time I finished.
I did NOT want to go, but I did it anyway.

The weekend was insanely busy. Relaxed most of the day at home on Friday watching Netflix and barely moving from the couch. Then my boyfriend called and said he wanted me to go to his house that night and help him get his resume done for a job that had to be submitted by midnight. Saturday we got up early and headed back to my house to get ready for my daughter's high school graduation. When graduation was over, we had to start prepping for the cookout the next day. After 3 trips to the store, we stayed up too late and had a few drinks. Sunday was non-stop cooking and such starting at 5am. Chris slow-cooked boston butts on the grill to make pulled pork, and made clams casino... I did peach cobbler and helped him with whatever he needed me to do... and washed more dishes, pots and pans than I want to try to count.

But hanging out with friends that night was FUN.

Yesterday, we just kind of hung out outside. We finished off the alcohol that was left in the fridge yesterday, laid in the kiddie pool he bought for his granddaughter, and got sunburned. LOL

And now it's back to work. And on to day 9 tomorrow!

Awesome Becki!
Any help you can give is appreciated. You apparently manage the app better than me-- I can't even figure out HOW to get to the Teams (to post like this) from the app. You can languish a bit in the admin department now and again-- Spark is pretty understanding about it. we all go through periods of time where we can't give extra.

Anyway, my workouts this week consist of working out, packing and moving boxes. ugh. It feels like I *just* did that (well, I did, technically, 5 months ago)

Yay!! I'm not alone and talking to myself anymore! LOL
Day 4 is done. Pretty great workout this morning.... Shoulders and abs. Now, 3 days off... which I am actually turning into 4... So back to LiveFit on Tuesday. I need the recovery time. After 9 months of no real serious workouts, I am SORE!
The cookout food for this weekend isn't looking very healthy so far. My boyfriend hasn't decided what he's grilling yet, but he is definitely making clams casino. I'm making peach cobbler and probably getting a cake for my daughter to surprise her. She thinks it's just a Memorial Day thing, but I think a "Congratulations, Ashley" cake is in order since she is graduating high school the day before.

I have some time right now to help as admin, but I use the app a lot too... I only really get on the regular site at work when I have no cell service. If I go back to school in the fall, my time will be seriously limited, but right now, I don't even know if I'll be able to go back. So sure, you can add me... I'll help as much as I can, however I can, and if I go back to school and get overwhelmed, I'll let you know!

Good luck with your move!! I moved in February, so I know it's INSANE getting it all done! I've been there with caring for a terminal parent, too. Trust me, I get it. And the amazing man. I found one of those. Check out the cover photo on my Spark Page. That's us at an organized bike event for Wreaths Across America in December.

Yay Beckie!

So glad you're back on a streak. I desperately need to start again- after spending half a year caring for my terminal mom and then traveling overseas and meeting an amazing man, I have ballooned up bigger than ever.
I don't get a chance to log in via laptop anymore-- I use the Spark app, which doesn't HAVE SparkTeams! so hard to keep up.
I'd be happy to bring on a new Team admin (or co-admin), if you have some time.
Right now I'm in the middle of catching up from my last trip, and moving next week... My gym membership lapsed, but hoping to use the gym at the new residence soon-- and unpack my own weights. Trying to get moving with some walks and body weight exercises in the meantime!

Keep it up- hope to see your Day 4 tomorrow!

Day 3 today. Leg day! I'm a freak, I guess, because I love leg day. Everyone always looks at me all crazy-eyed when I say I love leg day... but I do.
Good workout this morning. I've got a feeling I'm going to be SORE tomorrow. My upper body is super sore still...
Next week, I've already decided my 4 workouts will be on Tues thru Friday instead of Monday thru Thursday. Monday, being a holiday, will be a rest day and - probably - a recovery day (from the cookout on Sunday).
Hopefully I won't over-do it this weekend with the food and alcohol and derail all of my efforts, but I will have fun and just work hard and get back to it if I do over-indulge a little.

It looks as though this team has become inactive since I was last here, but I'll post anyway in the hopes that someone will show up, or if not... just for me to keep myself accountable. I started back with LiveFit yesterday. I took 9 months off from working out (besides a few workouts here and there at home) and went back to the gym last week. Started back with LiveFit yesterday so today was Phase 1, Day 2 - Back and Biceps. I'm super sore. I was already sore from starting back at the gym last Wednesday with light workouts. After 9 months off, though, even those were rough.
So anyway, here goes nothin'!

I have to be at work at 6am and prefer morning workouts before work, so for me, that means 3:30am wake ups right now.. but as the workouts get longer, that will start to get earlier and earlier. I'm not looking forward to that. But it will be worth it. I know the results I have had with previous rounds, so I know this for a fact! This plan works!

I'm on "Day 2" of basic activity. That means Walking, drinking water, and tracking food. I'm starting here after my long absence from caring for my mom who has since passed away. So, I think the basics are necessary first - getting in the habit of exercise and understanding what I'm eating - before I get the warrior mindset. Movement builds momentum. I hope to be posting regular updates, if I'm not then you know that I'm struggling. It will be a long road.
