Jamie Eason Live Fit Trainer {Week 5} Review

So here we are at the end of Week 5.

This was my first week of Jamie Eason’s Phase 2. (Five weeks TOTAL of doing the whole Program)
And guess what?! Im down TWO more pounds!! WOO HOO! That makes 12 Pounds so far! I have to say Phase 2 is no joke! The workouts are 6 days a week (4 weight training + 30 min cardio, and 2 LEG days) With all the gym time I have put in this past week PLUS I have been SUPER disciplined with my eating I was SOOOO hoping I would have lost something. After not losing any weight for week 4 I was starting to get bummed, but I keep hearing “Just trust the process” from other ladies who have done this program. So I stuck to it and I am starting to see some great results! I know I still have a long way to go but for now I am really proud of myself.




My thoughts on Phase 2 {so far}:
So the biggest change with this phase is ADDING cardio back in! I honestly missed it. I feel like I have left the gym every day this week drenched in sweat (GROSS I know) BUT it feels really good! To know I am laying it all out and doing it full force! And funny thing is I am starting to appreciate the two LEG days that don’t have cardio, It’s a nice break. As far as the meal plan goes, it’s pretty much the same EXCEPT we are eating our carbs in the morning and lessening their intake throughout the day. So I actually eat my last carb (sweet potato) at lunch time. So no more brown rice at dinner :( I know that in the future this is something I won’t be quite so strict about (eating certain foods at certain meals) BUT I am really trusting this process and going to go for it! It wasn’t really a big change and it has honestly made me branch out in the veggie department! I feel like I am not afraid to try new foods or think of different ways to cook vegetables, mixing things up a little.

For this weeks meal prep, its basically the same old same ya’ll. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it right?
Egg white muffins, broccoli, baked chicken, sweet potato’s, and turkey meatballs.

These little guys just never to seem to get old, Even after eating them every morning for the past 5 weeks, (except on Saturdays, that’s reserved for Protein Pancakes!) I still find them tasty!

Lunch has been the usual: Chicken, sweet potato and broccoli. I have to say every time I eat a sweet potato I just think about what amazing flavor it has! I used to drown mine in butter and cinnamon BUT now I eat them just plain and it’s delicious! It’s crazy but I feel like I am able to “taste” the ingredients better. I don’t need a gallon of creamer in my coffee and I don’t need a scoop of butter on my veggies. It’s funny how quickly your taste buds can change! I never thought I would enjoy just steamed veggies, but I am starting to really like them (EEEK I know!)

Meal Prep Jamie Eason: week 5

For dinner one night this week I made Spaghetti Squash with Chicken, Yellow Tomato’s and a side of asparagus and mushrooms. OMG mouthwatering good! It was my first time ever making Spaghetti Squash and I am in LOVE! Not only was my mind blown that it actually LOOKS like spaghetti?! So crazy! BUT it was the easiest thing ever.

Just cut a Spaghetti Squash in Half, rub with a little bit of olive oil and season with Salt and Pepper. Then just pop in your oven (face down) on a pan and roast on 400 degrees for about 40 minutes. Then literally it just scoops out so easy like noodles!

Another night I made Lettuce Wraps with sautéed shrimp, corn, onions and topped with carrots and green onions. So easy and fresh!

Okay let’s talk Workouts….

Here’s a little progress pic for ya! Okay so how sad is it that I was actually flexing in the first photo :( My poor muscles never had a chance to come out. Well fast forward to Week Five (I’m 12 pounds lighter Woop Woop!!) and I think I see a little muscle!! EEEK! So exciting. It definitely makes such a difference when you take progress pics. Honestly I didn’t feel like I had changed that much, BUT looking at the photos it makes me really proud! I feel like you can really see the difference! I still have a long way to go, BUT I know I am going in the right direction. And yes I am sporting my Body Building Tank that I received for FREE last week (read more about that fun story here)!! I want to wear it every day!

Okay ignore my crazy hair in the picture below (not that it ever really looks different than just a giant ball on the top of my head!) HA .. This was an early workout BUT I am so excited to starting to see muscles! I still don’t feel completely comfortable working out in tanktops but ya know I’m getting there and who cares it’s hot in Florida :)

Jamie Eason Phase 2

The workouts this week have literally been twice as hard & twice as long as the first month, I am usually shaking by the time I leave. But it feels really good! I feel like I am starting to feel more comfortable with weights and really learning the basics of weight training.

Let me just give you a little breakdown of Leg day on Wednesday .. I thought I was going to die! But guess what I didn’t :)





DAY 31 LEGS:
These are broken up into sets and reps but this is the TOTAL number.
I’m also upping the weights this week (using about 85% of my max effort) so for most of these exercises I am using 20 lb dumbbells. Which I might add is exciting since I started off at week 1 using only 8lbs in each hand. It’s so awesome to know that I am getting stronger in the gym!

-60 Leg Extensions
-30 LIGHT weights Squats
-40 HEAVY weights Squats
-32 Leg Press
-60 FRONT dumbbell Lunges
-60 REAR dumbbell Lunges
-45 Pile Dumbbell Squats
-60 Standing Calf Raises
-60 Sitting Calf Raises
* I had to make some adjustments (our gym doesn’t have the leg press machine so I just did some more leg extensions. OMG it was literally the hardest Leg Workout I have ever done!

Some of the other days were just as hard in a different way. Below was Day 30: Chest, Abs and Cardio.
