I was originally going to name this post “On Fire” (which I will get to in a minute) but come on, this clearly takes presidence:
Meet Jax! Our new German shepherd pup!
He is just barely 7 weeks, but so cute! He cries and grunts like a piggie a lot but he is just a little darling.
He follows Hunter all over the back yard and anytime Hunter drinks water, he wants a drink too. Hunter is thrilled… I think.
In other, less cute news, here’s the update on LiveFit:
Last week, (week 3) my body was ON FIRE!! Mostly my legs. There were 5 workouts this week (the last two weeks were only 4) and while it wasn’t brutal, it was definitely a step up from weeks 1 and 2! I felt like I was at the gym to WORK!
I can tell I am getting stronger because I am able to do a little more weight almost every week and am definitely getting less sore. I’ve been foam rolling like a mad woman and I think that has helped!
I’ve weighed myself here and there (no change) and also got a BMI test. Now I know they aren’t 100% accurate, but it was a good idea of where I stand and where I want to be. Sometimes, the truth can be brutal. Just one more reason to eat as clean as I can.
I’m happy to say that I am starting to notice little changes in how my clothes fit. My jeans are more comfortable and some of the sleeves on my shirts and dresses are a little looser.
Until now, I hadn’t really dealt with any cravings, since I use Saturday as a free day of sorts. But I have started to crave sugar! Peppermint tea is supposed to curb sweets cravings and promote digestion, so I’ve been having a cup almost every night.
I tried out Jaime’s pumpkin protein bars, which are pretty tasty. Though I’m a bit ashamed of jumping on the “healthy baked goods wagon. 😉 I don’t know what is happening to me!
I even made protein oatmeal and have to say, it was the best I’ve ever had.
This week I made the turkey meatloaf muffins.
I have to admit, I was skeptical that they would be dry and bland, but the chipotle pepper spice really is worth hunting down! Since I didn’t have dry mustard, I just replaced it with the kind in a bottle. Very full of flavor!
My absolute favorite meal of week three was spaghetti night!
I was glad I had lots left over!
