LiveFit Weeks 2/3 & my first give away!

Happy Friday, healthy people! This past couple of weeks has been absolutely insane, but I'm so excited because I feel like I'm getting back on my game and ready to have some fun. :)

This morning wrapped up week 3 of Jamie Eason's LiveFit trainer and I'm still LOVING it. We've also changed up our schedule and are now getting our workouts done in the mornings. I love having the evenings freed up to be with the family and spend time in the kitchen. I was in a major funk last week (week 2) and only got to work out one day, but since I'm not new to weight training, I decided not to back track and just pick up where I would have been without the break. Leg day (Monday) was a killer and I've been sore in different areas all week. Sometimes being sore like that is just so bitter-sweet. There's nothing like feeling the proof of a good workout!

As for the diet part of the LiveFit trainer, I'm not even looking at it anymore. The hubs has recently gone gluten free and we're both vegetarian, so our areas of focus are a little different than what's in the program. Our main focus is that we eat LOTS of fresh fruits and veggies, and still get enough protein. I also periodically track my intake with, just to be sure I'm on track.

No matter what you're doing on your health and fitness journey, your number one prioroty should always be what you're putting in your body. That will always be the main factor to the outcome you obtain. I'm confident that as long as we continue to eat clean and healthy 80+% of the time, we will still be extremely successful with this program. Watch and see! ;)

And now... (drum roll please!!) for my very first giveaway!! I'm so excited to enter this world of sharing great products with my great fans! It is such a joy for me to share the things that I use on my health and fitness journey, and this is just the beginning of things to come.

Have you seen, tried, or heard of the Blender Bottle? I've been seeing this thing all over the place and when I found their website, I just had to try it. The hubs and I have been using it and it works better than I imagined it would or could. No clumps and it comes out nice and smooth. It doesn't leak when you shake it and the smaller size that we got fits inside of our lunch cooler perfectly! And it's green, too - BPA free! This thing ROCKS!! :)

  • BlenderBall® whisk inside

    7. My husband and I fight over the two we have - one's small and one's large and we both use them for separate times... we apparently need at least one more! Great giveaway!

    8. "No matter what you're doing on your health and fitness journey, your number one prioroty should always be what you're putting in your body."

      Amen! We've all heard "you are what you eat", since we were kids, and we kee learning more about how true that is. The only hope for American waistlines is to wake up to that fact!

      Thanks for adding your voice to that message...
