Week 6 of the Live Fit Challenge was hard because I'm lifting heavier weight, and because I started a new job, so keeping up with 5 workouts a week was a challenge. Most days I went after work, but one day, when I had after work commitments, I got my arse up at 5:30 a.m. to get that workout in. I'm sore! But not so sore that I can't move.
Now that Week 6 is over, I'm halfway there. :) I'm scheduled to complete Week 12 on December 1! I think this will keep me motivated to enjoy the holiday food and desserts, but not completely go crazy.
I feel like my face is thinning some, which is a result I didn't anticipate. I like seeing my cheekbones! I'm really digging starting to be able to see more shoulder definition too. Because I am seeing results, it's helping me stick with the clean eating. It's really like clockwork now. I prepare meals on Sunday night and Wednesday night for the week- some people have asked what my husband eats, and he's doing the same thing so it works for us for now. Saturday night is eating out at a restaurant and getting to indulge.
Week 6 is days 36-42. I'm doing 20 minutes of cardio at the end of my workouts and incorporating abs between the last sets before cardio. For cardio, I do the stair mill at intervals between 60-75.
You have to go to the Live Fit website to print out the workout logs for each day.
Below is my progress in the last month. I can tell my arms are more toned, but it's hard to tell the progress in my legs since I'm wearing capris in the last two photos.
Please know that I am reading EVERY comment and email, but I haven't had a chance to respond. I plan to get back to it this weekend. Thank you so much for reading and sharing in this journey with me.
