Holy man! Looking at that workout schedule, I'm actually quite proud of myself. That is a LOT of hard work that sometimes I don't even realize I'm doing. 

My mom and I have really picked up the pace on our lunchtime walks. She's in serious training mode now. She even took a bike ride with Peanut on Saturday so I could get some freelance work done. She hasn't ridden a bike in years, so I'm so stoked for what this personal training experience will do for her. We're doing "homework" each week along with her personal training, and this week was all about water. I even got her a cute purple water bottle. We measured how many ounces it holds and figured out how many times she needs to refill it during the day. She's a coffee fiend who constantly has a coffee cup in her hand, so I'm trying to help her fuel with water instead. Next week, we'll be working on thought transformation. I can't wait! 

My lunch workout buddy and I have decided to run at lunch instead of strength train or do FlashFit workouts. This will save me some time in the morning that I've been slowly losing. Instead of having our lunch workouts just be an "extra" workout for me, now they'll actually be dedicated to parts of my training plan, which will really help me as long as neither one of us cancels. Plus, there's just something about running at lunch that makes the rest of the workday seem much easier. You have to break up all that computer time with something active!

I head into Phase 3 of the LiveFit Series next week, and I can't believe I've made it so far! I tend to get really bored or overworked with other plans (the Supreme90Day schedule actually made me sick), but this plan has kept me interested and progressing without the complete burnout. I always have enough self-discipline, just sometimes not the interest or lactic acid-reduction capabilities, ha! I think I may have even thrown in an extra run this week that wasn't on the plan. I'm feeling so so strong on this plan. I always have a berry protein shake within 30 minutes of completing a workout, and that is definitely helping with my recovery and muscle building capacity.

See you next week, when I enter Phase 3, the final phase, of LiveFit. What did your workouts look like this week?
