Lifting Again

Hello friends!

Monday morning my hubby and I woke up before the sun was out and headed to the gym to start Jamie Eason’s LiveFit trainer again.  This time I will be able to put in the time needed to do all of these workouts.  We managed to do the first 30 days of the trainer back in December when I first started my half marathon training, but as my run got longer, I had less time to lift in the gym.  We decided that after my half marathon we would start it again.

I have never trained for such a big race before, and I didn’t realize that when you run that much you tend to lose a lot of muscle, and get “doughy”.  Ideally, I would like to be able to run and do weight training, but with a full time job I don’t see myself being able to put in that much time at the gym.  But I might be able to start going for short run during the week, outside with Ella.

The first week of the LiveFit trainer, as a three day rest period built in, and it is probably for a good reason, but I just cannot take three days off in a row.  So instead, Erik and I took Wednesday off, and moved Leg for this morning, and shoulder and Abs for tomorrow.  We will take the weekend off, and get right back to it on Monday.

Last night I made dinner for the first time in a week (we have been so busy, we are just making quick meals), and it was aweeesomesauce.


Grilled Chicken (with Nando’s sauce), Steamed french beans, and Veggie Qunioa. It was amazing.

And I just realized that tomorrow is Friday, and I get to see the Hunger Games this weekend with my twinzie 🙂


Has anyone else felt doughy while they are training for a big race, or can you fit in time to lift?

Have a great day!

      doughy is a bad thing jen :-p haha. Dont be afraid to lift, if you do it properly you won’t get broad shoulders. I have broad shoulders and lifting makes them tone and tighter.
