This week I completed Week 2 of Jamie Eason’s LiveFit Trainer program which was basically a repeat of Week 1.
My gym still had weird hours this week so it was a bit of a struggle to make it work but I managed to get the workout done every day.
The general instrustions were 3 sets of 12 repetitions (3 X 12) per exercise, resting 60 seconds (give or take) in between each set & the intensity level (i.e. the amount of weight you should aim to lift) should be 60% of what you think would be your maximum effort.

Week 2 Thoughts:
Another week down! This week felt good. I felt more confident in doing this kind of routine versus my old stuff and didn’t feel sore at all. I am still doing 30 minutes most days for cardio as well as a daily warm up of 5-10 minutes even though it’s not part of the plan. My cardio of choice is currently walking but I’m hoping to start biking more next week – let’s hope for less rain!
I’m obviously not seeing major results yet but I’m getting excited about what is eventually coming. Next week I will finally get to workout at the gym at my normal time and I’m looking forward to it because it will be less crowded which means I can follow the program exactly without interference. Starting this program over the holidays might not have been the best time but I’ve got past the worst of it. Now I’m on to more exciting things!
Again this week my diet wasn’t as good as it could have been. I’m getting closer but obviously not there yet and definitely not to the point of following the diet Jamie Eason prescribes. I’m still trying to figure out the best way to eat without making myself crazy (and ending up back in therapy for disordered eating… don’t want that!).
I did a lot of food prep today for the upcoming week so that should help me keep to clean eating especially on the days where I’m short on time. Also remembering my goal of consistency should help. I’m predicting next week will be GREAT!
Hope you had a great weekend and have a healthy week!
