Day Three of Jamie Eason's LiveFit Trainer was all about Legs. I like working out my legs because I feel like they should be strong, and the workout was easy to start, but when I added more weight (You're supposed to push your limits in this phase), I could really feel it. Incidentally, I don't feel sore in my legs (yet), but if the rest of the workout has been any indication, I should feel it tomorrow morning.
On to the Holy...Freaking...YUMM!!!!! header. I've been struggling a bit with the eating program part (this is a LOT of food!), and I decided to start making some of the recipes so I'm not eating the same things day after day. I imagine lots of cooking will be done this weekend.
I got my Supplement pack from BodyBuilding.com today, which included Rich Vanilla Whey Protein Powder. I've only ever tried Chocolate Vegan Protein Powder, which I adored, but I'm open to try new things. The first recipe I tried, which called for Protein Powder was Jamie's Cinnamon Swirl Protein Bread.

Soooo good! It honestly tastes like French Toast. And each slice is about 55 Calories (makes sixteen servings). I subbed Splenda for the Xylitol, which isn't recommended when Clean Eating, which this program recommends, but it was all I had. The rest was all the way it was supposed to be and aside from a slight artificial sweetener taste, it was awesome. I can only imagine how it would be with the Xylitol.
I'm looking forward to the rest of this plan. I read a blog yesterday, Live Life Active, where she went through almost all the different workouts, and this is looking tough. I just keep reminding myself of the shoes I'm going to buy myself when it's over. It's so easy to say that I'll power through now, on the first week, but I'm just trying to keep my motivation high. I have to do something. That's all there is to it. I'm excited to keep going on. And I have my Mantra.
No workout tomorrow. We have new registers at BBW, and I have training right after the main job before working for another three hours. Hopefully they're easy.
