I’ve gotta say- every day living that I’m living here is a good day. I still constantly have those “pinch me” moments where I can’t believe that it’s real, like earlier this week while hiking at Chautauqua. I’m just … so at peace here.
As you can see, I live on the edge.
Today is a very special day: it marks the last day of the third and final phase of Jamie Eason’s LiveFit trainer! In some ways, I can’t believe it’s over. But in others, the program seems like it’s gone on forever. I’ve definitely learned a lot over the last 13 weeks (the program is 12 weeks, but I had one week while I was in Oregon that I did non-LiveFit workouts). This post today is all about the good, the bad and the ugly. Well, maybe not so ugly.
I started the LiveFit trainer program on Monday, April 29th – just one day after we moved to Colorado. When I lived in Maryland I was teaching a minimum of seven group exercise classes a week (mostly Bodypump and Spinning), so those were the majority of my workouts. After performing the same exercise routine for years, I knew it was time to switch it up. Since every other single thing in my life was changing I figured why not start a new exercise program too? My friend Heather had been doing LiveFit for two weeks by the time I started and was raving about how great it was. For the first time in a long time I actually had the freedom to choose what my workouts were going to be, so I decided to start the LiveFit trainer program. I should also point out that I did not follow the LiveFit Trainer Eating Program, so I won’t be commenting on that at all. There are some decent recipes that Jamie Eason recommends, and I did adapt some of them into my diet.
