Happy Sunday babes!!!!! Today is my complete prep day for starting my new program. What is it???? Curious???
Well… It’s Jamie Eason’s LIVE FIT TRAINER 12 week program, through bodybuilding.com
I’ve always been into diet and fitness, but I’ve never quite gotten the results I’ve wanted with what I’ve been doing. It’s time to get serious. This program totally breaks it down to a science that is foolproof. It all makes sense now. All I’ve got to do…is STICK TO IT;) lol. (said the cereal binger) I’m ready to build some serious muscle, stick to balanced diet, and get re-focused.
Here we gooooooo…..
Time for measurements…..I’ve never done this…this should be interesting…..

Now that that’s over, I can breath. I’m saving the before picture for the end of the 12 week reveal;) this program is something you, yo mama, yo aunti, anyone can do. All it takes, is absolute DETERMINATION. Like I said before, it’s foolproof. Through bodybuilding.com, it couldn’t be easier to manage and track your progress. Every part of the program is spelled out for you literally. You can print out your workouts, workout logs, what you need to eat everyday…I mean. Soooooo easy. Jamie takes the guessing bull shit out of the equation.
*** printable grocery list

***6 meal a day meal prep

***recipes to print out and add to your meal plan.

***once you sign up for the program, which in FREE by the way, you can automatically sync your new workout schedule to your mobile device iCal or iPhone.

***easy to keep track of progress and weight management.

***also, Jamie’s recommended “stack” (supplements).

PHASE 1: WEEKS 1-4 Build muscle/ no cardio

Here’s the deal…you click on your day….it gives you your workout for that day, and what foods to eat, then you print it out. Another way to do it….print out the workout logs for the week, and foods, and have them ready to go. Take the page with you to the gym. Boom. Done.
You will notice below…NO CARDIO!!!!! dundundunnnnnnnnn!!!!! I know!!! WTF. that’s what I thought too.
I’m totally that annoying cardio bunny. Well kids…time to make a change.

PHASE 1: BUILD MUSCLE THROUGH STRENGTH TRAINING AND CLEAN EATING.

Everyday you will be able to see your workout in this form or in video. Remember..it’s all about form and technique, so if you’re quite sure what the specific exercise should look like, you’ve got visuals right in front of you.
*** if you are the type to get embarrassed or intimidated in a gym weight room, #1: get the FU%* OVER IT! #2: practice your form in the mirror at home, so that your mind and body become familiar and comfortable with the movement.

Here is what I’ll be starting with tomorrow. My first workout! I can hardly wait!!
DAY 1 baby!!

You will only need to print out one page for the meals of PHASE 1:
Yep. Why? Well, cuz it’s pretty damn straight forward.. Look below.

20130908-150006.jpg

First week: 4 days strength training.
3 rest days.

Sounds easy enough….lol.
DON’T GET USED TO THAT;) shit gets serious later on.
I’ve printed out my workout logs, and I’m ready to hit those weights like a boss!!!!

But before allllllll of this amazing-nesssss, I want you to educate yourselves in what your goals are. The only way to track your progress, is by being honest with yourselves.
I found a really GREAT post from a fave blog of mine, heandsheeatclean.com on how to properly calculate your body fat.
Trust me yo, this is noooo fun for anyone, I don’t care how skins you are. But listen, if you want results, it’s time to get real, and get down to the nitty-gritty.
Remember this is all a simple science.
*** Why do I need to know my WEIGHT??
To figure out what you should be eating, and how much protein you should be consuming.

It’s the key number in finding out how many of those pounds are lean muscle and which are body fat.

20130908-150503.jpg
Here are my current, honest measurements as of today & through my calculations ( did this like 5x) I calculated this:

LEAN MUSCLE MASS: 98.5
BODY FAT %: 23.5

I want leaner and meaner!!
