Weightloss Update:
Okay so I lost a total of ZERO pounds this week! :( Sad face! I am disappointed but honestly I know its SOOOOO common. I get ALOT of women who say that they stay the same or even GAIN weight in the beginning so I’m not too concerned. All I can do is keep chugging along and not give up! Real change is NOT just a number on a scale. I have to keep telling myself that, sometimes it’s putting on an old pair of jeans that finally fit! Or being able to do “REAL” pushups finally! I am staying positive and going to keep going!

Meal Prep this week was very similar to WEEK 3. With a couple different meals thrown in there! For breakfast I decided to add Sweet Potatoes to my egg white muffins. I cubed my sweet potatoes first, baked them for 15 minutes at 350 to soften them. Then added the egg white and spinach. And then bake for 15 more minutes. They were delicious!

One morning I decided I wanted something different so I kept it simple with Greek yogurt, banana, oats and topped with Jamie Eason’s Peanut Protein Powder! It was so good!

For Dinner TWO nights this past week. I made hummus crusted chicken.
Top chicken with homemade or store-bought hummus, sprinkle with Ole Bay Seasoning, bake at 350 for 25 minutes THEN broil for 5-8 minutes so the top gets nice and crusty :) I also make sure to add some water to the pan while baking so the chicken stays moist! We ate it with brown rice and a simple salad with yellow tomatoes.

I wanted something different than the typical protein bars so I made Apple & Oat protein muffins! Will post the recipe this week, they were really good! I loved having something different to mix it up!

I apologize for the DARK picture of our dinner haha, I devoured this so fast I didn’t get a good picture. My husband made dinner thursday night because Annabelle was just being SO fussy I couldn’t get a second to cook. So insert *amazing husband* and he cooked the fish in foil MAHI, with asparagus, chickpeas and brown rice. I LOVE that he supports my goals and wants me to succeed too! I’ve said this before but one of the BEST tips for this program is having a really good support system around you! David is great and watches Annabelle so I can go to the gym and cheers me on when I come back shaking HA! It’s not always easy being new parents, we are still LEARNING so much and have so many challenging days, but we get through it as a team and support each other!

You guys are probably getting sick of seeing my Banana Protein Pancakes, but I can’t help it y’all! They are just soooo dang good! And I love having my *Pancake Saturday*! It gives me something to look forward to every week!

Okay so Super Bowl 2015 was Sunday and I was really like really craving something sweet! So instead of having a dairy queen blizzard HAHA I made Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Cookies with Oats and DARK chocolate. They were honestly more “muffiny” texture but they hit the spot! As I’ve said before, the Jamie Eason 12 week Live Fit trainer is so much more than a diet for me! It’s a lifestyle and I can’t live in a cave when it comes to food! I’m going to have days when I want chocolate, so It’s about making BETTER healthier choices! And MAKING your OWN sweets is one way to make sure you know exactly what you are putting in your body! Will be posting the recipe soon, if I can remember it! HA I just kinda threw it together in between feeding Annabelle sweet poatoes too, so I was a little distracted! 😉

Week 4: Workouts
Okay so last week of workouts that are NO cardio! I honestly really enjoyed just lifting, the workouts this past week were tough though! I upped my weights & a lot of the workouts ADDED more exercises, so instead of 6 there were 9! Definitely challenged me! But I can tell I’m getting stronger! It’s so hard to be patient, but I know I will start seeing results in Phase 2!

The 2nd Leg Day was so hard for me!! OMG my legs were shaking the whole time! HA but as hard as those dang dead lifts were I liked doing an exercise that I would have never thought of! Thats one of the many reasons I love Jamie Easons program! It’s like having your own personal trainer. When I used to go to the gym I would just do a couple machines then 30 minutes on the treadmill. I love that I’m learning NEW exercises! Even though I’ve done this program before it was PRE-Baby, so I forgot a lot of the exercises.

Let me just take a second and talk about motivation for this program! Im 30 days in, COMPLETED Phase 1 WOO HOO! And at this point it honestly feels SO GREAT and SO FRUSTRATING too! Why you ask?! Because I feel really good, am eating really clean foods, working out 5-6 days a week and following the plan, BUT I still have so many things that I want to improve on physically! It can be SO easy to get discouraged NOT seeing AMAZING results yet! One of the most common TIMES to stop the program, is week 4. Women get discouraged and gain weight or don’t see ANY changes so they give up. I know from my last round that the first phase is so important in just establishing that foundation of healthy habits! Phase 2 and 3 is really when you start to see results. Honestly the scale didn’t move TOO much during phase 3 like I thought it would last time BUT it was when I saw the most MUSCLE tone! So I am hanging in there and not letting my 0 lbs lost this week, get me down! I am in this for the long haul!

And I’m guna let you in on a little secret… I’m going to do this program TWICE this year! After I finished last round, I really felt like it was JUST the beginning and if I had done it a second time I feel like I would have started to REALLY see the muscle tone. But after getting pregnant, which was a HUGE blessing, I had to stop the workouts because I had such HORRIBLE morning sickness. ANYWAY I know now that just 12 weeks is so short, and Im not going to get RIPPED haha! So After I complete this program in April I want to do it a second time! Annabelle turns 1 in August, OMG I’m not even going to think about it because I know it’s going to be here before you know it!! So I want to be in really great shape by her first Birthday.

Do you have any FITNESS goals this year?! Would LOVE to hear them!!

And TIP, take Progress Photos!! Even when the scale doesn’t budge, you can still SEE great progress! My arms are def one of my biggest body insecurities but they are getting stronger, day by day. PHASE 1 RECAP: I’ve lost a total of 12 pounds. I weigh 158 lbs this week (same as last) and I am feeling really good about having these healthy habits in place.
