Weekend Wrap up

Monday is here again, and this Monday marks 6 weeks into Jamie Easons LiveFit trainer which means we are halfway done! I'm so glad I decided to do this, I'm loving how challenging the workouts are and that they are changing every 2 weeks. One of my favorite exercises was incorporated into leg day #2 over the weekend, and I was so excited because it seems like forever since I've done them! Deadlifts, yay! If you're anything like me, before I got serious about the gym I had no idea what a deadlift was, let alone how to do one- so I recommend going on bodybuilding.com and checking out their videos on proper form. These can be tricky and a little dangerous if you don't know what you're doing... but they're very effective and it's definitely worth trying them out.

 You can find the entire leg day workout on bodybuilding.com. It was a killer and just about every muscle on my lower body is sore... or at least if feels that way! After the gym I got to go to my younger sisters soccer game. They are too stinkin cute, and they won!


I know I have to keep my carb intake up after a heavy leg day, so I ate pumpkin protein bars as I watched :) I also went to a surprise birthday party at my parents house on Saturday night and passed up my all time favorite food ever, my mom's bean dip. I don't think you understand how much I love this stuff, and typically would have cheated and ate a little, but I chose not to because with this I know I would have gone crazy. (Plus there is cheese in it which would have made my tummy very, very angry) Anyway, will power is a crazy thing and when you use it, it really does make you feel pretty awesome. I spent the rest of my weekend doing some stuff for work, studying, and also working on a couple health/fitness related projects that I hope to be able to share with everyone very soon!

A little question: What's your number one favorite exercise to do at the gym? I would love to know!

  1. Dead lifts are my favorite too, I never had a butt until I started doing them! That and single leg lunges!
