Stick With It
I woke up early today around 5:30am to go to my gym. The workouts in Week 3 increase from 4 days a week to 5 days a week and you are allowed to choose which body part you would like to work twice a week. I chose back and biceps. I consider my back to be the area that needs special attention. As far as the diet part of it, the hardest part is eating so much. It’s hard for me to eat 1,700 calories a day. I’m eating more around 1400 – 1600 calories a day.
Ok…if I’m going to do this review then I have to be 100% honest. I was thinking about doing some cardio this weekend because I am so sick of looking at this fat on my body. BUT. I am going to stick with the program because if it doesn’t work then I want to be able to say it didn’t work for me AND I followed all the directions. So I’m going to stick it out, and wait another two weeks to incorporate cardio, and do a legit review on this program. I also gained about 2lbs. I was pissed.
I haven’t cheated on my diet or missed any workouts; I just gained out of nowhere. I was happy to weigh in because I looked like I had loss weight, but I gained weight. Everyone keeps telling me it’s the muscle. I’ve prepared all my meals for the week so it’s a no brainer as far as what I am going to eat. Sunday I went to the mall, and I refused to buy any pants because I am more than certain I am going to be out of a size 16’s and into my size 8’s in no time. I also resisted Auntie Anne’s Pretzels while shopping at the mall! Talk about dedication.
I’m going to stick with the Live Fit program, and not deviate from the plan because you are going to gain before you lose in Phase 1, and I am shrinking regardless of what the scale says. I was slightly depressed seeing I gained weight but I am not giving up. I was doing my hair today and I noticed my biceps in the mirror. They were jumping as I was brushing my hair back! I have refocused, and I’m ready to get these next two weeks over with so we can get to the good stuff…cardio and fat burning!
Epiphany Moment: Don’t expect to see results after only 2 weeks of following the program. True healthy weight loss is a marathon, not a sprint. Although I gained 2lbs of the 4lbs back this week, I’ve still lost 2lbs during the program in two weeks!
