Phase 1 Done! 

Month One of Jamie Eason’s 12 day live fit is complete!  I feel great especially after today’s weigh in and measure.  

I only lost 9 pounds but I lost 11 inches!! I was hoping I would have lost close to 15 pounds but I’m happy with the 9 because I know I gave it my all!  

Phase 2/Month 2 starts tomorrow, I got my food prepped, have my rower ready to go since I add cardio this month!  I also have to go back to the dentist tomorrow so can get my weights and cardio done in the morning! 

Here is a before and current picture of my results.  I’m excited to see what the end of month 2 will bring and even month 3 when I start carb cycling!

IKEA 

  
It only took me 5 hours but I finally got the dresser/change table all put together by myself.  It wasn’t too difficult just lots of pieces, I surprised myself.  I do need to get a little tool set though to keep in my house, there have been numerous times I’ve needed a hammer and ended up using a wrench instead hahah.  Luckily my dad left his power drill at my house so it made the set up a bit easier.  

I am in absolute LOVE with the dresser/change table though, I feel it will go along with my woodland theme so well.  Along with the copper knobs I got at Target they pair very well together.  I can already picture how I will set everything up when the time comes.  I think for the glider chair I have I will either just sand and stain it a natural wood color or paint it white.  The cushions I’m thinking something navy would look nice and pull the color of the dresser as well.  Maybe white with navy polka dots!  

I want to take a night and go threw all my baby items since the dresser took so long and I meal prepped the same day I didn’t feel like doing it.  

Ahh! 

  
 I HAD to, there was no way I could pass this adorable bandana bib I found on etsy!  So I ordered it yesterday morning, more items for the hope chest.  I bought it from thebirdandelephant from etsy, she has some great adorable items at a decent price considering they are hand made!  She had previously a “feather” chew ring/crinkle toy for babies and I wish it was still available because I would have bought it as well.  

I’m ending week 3 of my lifestyle change, been doing great had 1 cheat meal on Saturday at Joe Beevers (free willy sandwich and poutine 👌) and have been sticking to the nutrient plan to a tee since then.  My cycle is going to start today or tomorrow so I don’t want to weigh myself, I’m going to try and hold out till the end of week 4 before I start phase 2.

I’m hoping I can at least get close to losing 15 pounds (that was my goal for the first month) I have been trying hard either way and will purchase my phase 1 reward which is a pack of suckies I plan to use and some suckie holders from esty.  

Also!!! Someone I follow on Instagram, another future single mom by choice told me that Mushybooks (baby books from BC) (that I have been drooling over since I found them months ago) will make a special book for single moms if you request it!! She ordered hers a little while ago (since they are put together by hand and have to have special pages made it takes a bit longer) and it’s the same “The Wild Child” one I want to get so she’s going to send me pictures when she gets hers.   A Mushybook is my Round 2 Phase 1 goal reward! So that should be in April! 

Eight Months

8 months of waiting.  It’s so long.
At least I plan to be productive!  I started Jamie Eason’s 12 week live fit program, yesterday.  So for the first month I do just weights, 2nd month add cardio and 3rd months carb cycle.  All while eating clean food and adding supplements (multi-vitamin, krill oil, pre-workout & amino acids, on top of my pre-natal and folic acid). I’m going to do the 12 weeks for sure then not sure if I’ll do another round or do a different program of hers.  I also plan to have a new stable job and really save some money.  I want to be able to purchase items for the baby that I want.

While I was in Winnipeg I went for my very first Ikea shopping trip.  $700 later I had so much.  All house things (shelving, ect) then of coarse the navy dresser that will go into the nursery and a blue cart I’ve wanted for a few years now.  Once my basement is done and the guest bedroom is moved down there I will put the dresser together.  But I don’t have the room right now.

I am sleepy today, I think cutting out processed sugar foods has got me (even on day 3) so my plan is to get home, crush my leg day workout, eat my supper take my vitamins then crawl into bed.  Going to put my lavender essential oil in my diffuser again tonight, I put peppermint in on Monday and Lavender last night and had such good sleeps!

On a sucky note my Land Rover decided it didn’t want to start on Monday and my dad tried getting it going but nothing worked.  No one around here knows how to fix a foreign vehicle so my dad had to load it up on a trailer and drive it all the way to Winnipeg (5 hrs away) to the dealership to get fixed.  Turns out it’s the starter and it’s a $900 part.  So it will be ready for Saturday and I’ll pick it up then while my moms Range Rover gets a part exchanged.  Then I’ll leave the city early, since I already spent $700 last trip and another $900 this trip, but I plan to go to a hockey game that night with my best friend anyways.
