LiveFit Update & Vegan Cheese Cookbook

14 Feb

LiveFit Update – Day 8!

Still sticking with the Jamie Eason’s 12-Week LiveFit program. So far so good. One thing I’ve noticed is how much better of a workout I’m getting by doing 4 days of muscle groups broken up, as opposed to separate sessions of full-body strength training! Before, when strength training, I  just wanted to get it out of the way. I’d find a few moves that could incorporate a couple muscle groups at a time, do a few sets, be done with it, and on to cardio. Now that I’m focusing on two muscle groups a day and working them out until fatigue I can already tell how much it’s improving my strength!

Yesterday was Day 8 – Tricep and Chest – I was still a little sore in my chest from LAST WEEK’s workout! Crazy! I did get through most of the workout but had to skip the last set of chest fly and last exercise, Tricep kickbacks because my form was so bad at that point from my arms being tired.

Vegan Cheese Cookbook

I bought the book, The Ultimate Uncheese Cookbook for my hubby as a surprise Valentine’s Day gift.

We don’t normally exchange V-Day presents, but I saw this and thought he’d really like it. Before he turned Vegan about 2 months ago, his number #1 love of his life was …. CHEESE!!!!!!!! This kid had cheese in the morning with his eggs, cheese at lunch with his Chipotle, cheese at Dinner on his pizza, then a little cheese in between by sticking his hands in the bag of shredded cheese and shoveling piles in his mouth. So, when I say he loved cheese, it is NO JOKE!

This book has tons of recipes that use variations of different things (ie., tofu, cashews, almonds, nutritional yeast, etc., or combination of ingredients) to make a “cheesy” taste in various popular dishes. Perfect for an ex-cheese lover!

I’m hoping they turn out well! Anyone tried anything from this book before they’d recommend? I read the online reviews and people seemed to like the ones I posted above, plus the “Nacho Cheese”. I’m excited to try it out!

New Year, New Start!

1 Jan

It’s been about 28 days since my last post and since then, well, the Holidays happened…

An additional 4 lbs later, I’m exactly back to where I started on Day One <womp, womp>…. But hey, new year, new start, right?!

Health-wise, I have a few new challenges and changes that should help with the weight loss in the coming months. One of those being organizing my basement and turning it into a little makeshift home gym. This past week on Holiday break I’ve been cleaning and organizing my entire house and the basement is last on the list, (but most exciting part). Stay tuned, pics to come! 

Secondly, starting next month, I’ll begin Jamie Eason’s 12 week strength training plan with two friends! I’m excited about this as I’ve never really had a set training schedule for weights other than when I worked out with a personal trainer a few years back (something I definitely can’t afford right now!). Her plan is FREE, all laid out in an easy-to-follow format, made by someone who looks amazingly healthy, and she has countless ‘before’ and ‘after’ pics of regular people on her Facebook page that have gone through the program with great results!
