Hey there you guys! Its me, having a bit of free time to bring you this update.
First thing is first. End term projects have officially swamped me. I literally have more projects than I can handle and I need to make good with one of them because apparently Im failing in Sociology hahahaha! That’s weird. But I’m aceing everything else, most specially Psychology. But I know you don’t want to hear all about academics. You’re hear to read about my ongoing experience with the Jaime Eason Live Fit 12 Week Trainer
F.A.Q. for my completed 6 weeks of 12 weeks into the program
Which Phase/week are you in now?
- I’m currently in Phase 2, week 7 day 43.
– Deadlift and Squats
– because I feel so strong seeing over 100lbs on the damn plates haha (yes I’m vain)
Have you lost weight?
– on the contrary I gained a whopping 7-8 lbs during the first phase
SO is it bad?
– No it’s not. I lost 1-2 dress sizes while gaining 7-8 lbs.
What was your starting weight before starting the program
– around 131-133lbs
What is your weight now?
– ugh do I really need to? okay okay 136
I thought you gained 7 lbs?
– I did. During phase 1 I gained So much because the program required NO cardio at all. So it was all eating and lifting. So I gained. I went up to almost 138lbs. But upon reintroducing cardio this phase 2, I guess I lost a bit of weight. 2lbs in 2 weeks?
How did you feel?
– I felt very empowered from the very beginning of the program because it was something new and I was so super excited to test my strengths and explore new territories with my fitness.
Was it worth it?
– Half way through the program, I can say YES! it is so worth it, Even when I don’t have time for other things. I just make sure that right after classes I go to the gym and do the preset exercises which were very well laid out and explain for me in the program itself. I’m much stronger now and I can do a shit load more things than I used to. Heck i was able to push the giant cabinets in my room all by myself when 2 other girls (the maids) couldn’t do it with their combines strength! BWAHAHAHAH (yes I’m vain, still)
Was it easy , hard? or just in between?
– To be honest, it’s not easy, and definitely not too hard, but what I can say is that it is challenging.
You can make it easy by choosing lighter weights but since I want to get stronger I had to use weights that challenged me and that made me push myself harder. I made sure that the last rep I had to use over 9000 amount of willpower and strength. But there are days I chose to just lift light specially those “girl” days (IFYWIM)
What was the hardest part about her program?
– FOOD! The damn food! Eating clean! Eating the same types of food (no matter how much you vary). Honestly I can train for 24 hours but the food. the cravings. it is THE MOST DIFFICULT PART!
– I think I will add LEG DAY! I love leg day but it kills me every single time hahaaha!
What was the easiest part?
– Hmmmm….. easiest part… ab workouts. because I did pilates in the past, which really worked my core, to the ab workouts are nothing to me. :P LOL. also hammer curls and leg presses are easy :)
Did you meet your goals and expectations for your halfway mark?
– to be honest with you, I expected to loose a lot of weight but because of the gain I was a bit paranoid but when I tried on my clothes which seemed to be a little more lose then it kinda made me feel positive about it
Anyway those are the only questions I was give but just a few more notes I wanted to add.
I am dead terrified of the scale because every time I see a big number on it my tendency is to relapse so as much as possible, during this whole program I want to refrain from looking at the scale. I look bigger in some parts due to my gain but I hope to cut out the fats on the remaining weeks in the program.
Also as for my diet. I basically just screwed it upon entering the 2nd phase. I was strict during the 1st phase though. But the thing is, I learned to distinguish which food i can or cannot eat and I can more or less balance out the things to a certain point, but I still ate pizza, fried chicken, chocolates, white bread and junk food.
DIET was and continues to be THE HARDEST part of the program. hopefully once I get my allowance I can buy my food again.
Anyway, this is all I have for you today. If you have other questions regarding my half way through, experience, with the program, leave a comment below and I will answer them on the next blog post.
