Jamie Eason Live Fit Challenge {Week 1}

So here I am at the end of Week 1 of the Jamie Eason Live Fit 12 Week Challenge.

Overall I feel great! Ive lost 3 pounds so far! Woop Woop! And immediatly I’ve noticed I’m sleeping better at night (I usually toss and turn for a good hour before falling asleep and David just really loves it! HA) So thats a good start. I’m going to layout my first week of workouts and food plans below in case anyone wants to follow along.The KEY to this 12 week program is clean eating, which includes eating 6 small well balanced meals a day every 2-3 hours. Along with weightlifting and small amounts of cardio all of these factors make this program totally OUT of my comfort zone but I’m ready to learn :) I consider myself a pretty healthy eater but WHOA I had no idea how much processed stuff I was eating even just in flours, oils, salad dressings, dairy products, coffee creamer (just to name a few). Just because it says “ORGANIC” doesn’t mean it really is! Read the labels people, if you can’t pronounce the ingredients, don’t eat it!If you want to read more about the FREE Jamie Eason Live Fit Challenge click here. (This program is in fact FREE but you will need access to a gym, I am currently using our community workout room, but for Phase 2 I will need to use more machines so I will be getting a gym membership next month.)So let me start out by saying that when my friend sent me the link to the website I was immediatly hooked after watching the intro video! And then as I scrolled through the foods and workouts that excitement QUICKLY turned to being overwhelmed, its okay! It seems kind of intense at first but it’s really not {trust me}. It’s all about making NEW habits and that’s going to be a little uncomfortable & will take time  but it will be worth it!Week 1 – FOODTo see the official Food List click here —-> Jamie Eason Approved Foods ListSo one thing that I’ve had to get used to so far is MEAL PREP! I spent last Sunday afternoon cooking ALL my food for the week (except dinners) and then dividing them into lovely little tupperwares :) And honestly it made going to work in the morning SO EASY! I just grab a couple containers and I have all my meals for the day! I know my officemates think all I do is eat all day! haha BUT I’m eating smaller portions every 3 hours, so I am avoiding the ravenous food binge when I get home from work. And I’m never starving because I’m eating more filling and healthy foods.Jamie Eason Live Fit Meal Prep: Week 1

Here is a list of what I have eaten this week.
P.S. I LOG all my foods with the FREE iPhone App “My Fitness Pal“Meal 1- 8:00  AM
-2 egg white muffins, 1/2 a cup of chickpeas (or brown rice), and veggies (handful of spinach)Meal 2 – 11:00 AM
-1/2 cup of greek yogurt and berries
OR – 2 turkey meatballs with spinachMeal 3- 1:00 PM
-4 oz of baked chicken, spinach salad with strawberries, blueberries and walnuts w/ a tablespoon of Balsamic Vinaigrette
OR – 4 oz of baked chicken, half a steamed sweet potato, and a cup of steamed broccoli topped with a quater of a tomato

Meal 4 – 3:30 PM
– 2  of Jamie Eason’s turkey meatballs with a handful of spinach and tomato
OR  – 2 sqaures of Jamie Eason’s chocolate protein bars

Meal 5 – 5:30 (PRE WORKOUT)
-protein shake (1 scoop of protein powder and either almond milk OR water)

Meal 6 – 8:00 PM
-lean meat or fish with steamed veggies and salad




 Depending on my day sometimes I only eat 5 meals a day every 3 hours, if I am really hungry I’ll eat more often (6 meals a day) LISTEN to your own body, don’t starve yourself. And because I’m eating clean I don’t feel guilty or OVERLY full (aka the notorious food coma) NOPE I feel full and satisified! This part is very new for me! Its taking some time adjusting and its not easy turning down tasty food that people are offering in the office (like FREE icecream, what the what?! but I said No, and ate my homemade protein bar)Breakfast – 2 egg white muffins (i’ll be sharing my recipe later this week) with a half cup of brown rice

Not just working out like crazy for two weeks then not doing anything for 3 months (Um Im not the only one who’s done that before right?!) So this time I know that I really want to stick to the workouts! This week it’s only been 30 minutes a day 4 days a week. Let me tell you I’ve been SOOO SORE! The workouts are intense and they will eventually get to be about 1.5 hrs a day, 6 days a week but lets just worry about that later, shall we?!One of the great things that I’m loving about this so far is the workouts are gradual, its not super crazy with exhausting workouts 7 days a week, you really ease your way into it, and guess what NO CARDIO the first month! Crazy, I know!Week 1 – Phase 1 workouts CLICK HEREPicture 1Okay I know this post was SUPER long, I promise next week will be more to the point :)
But are you convinced & want to do this with me yet?! I cant wait till I can finally see results, I know its going to get super intense but I am really enjoying the program so far!Happy weekend ALL!
