|Mom and I a few years ago. I was pregnant with the little one in this picture.|
I slept late (almost until 7 a.m.) and then the kids and I went for a fancy breakfast together. After bagels (for them) and coffee (for me) at Dunkin Donuts, we headed to Trader Joe's for some shopping. The kids made sure to remind me that I am a mother by making me scold them constantly.

It was so much fun. Then we headed over the Verrazano to see my grandma. She is 97 years old and is still going strong.

Then we went home for baths and bedtime. After the kids were in dreamland, I started boiling a million eggs for this week's new challenge...
As of today I have started Jamie Eason's LiveFit program. It is a 12 week program that I stumbled upon at Rhonda's blog. After reading through the diet and work out plan, I decided I would give it a shot. My trip to Trader Joe's was to get some of the food staples that I will need. Eason provides a meal plan for 5-6 meals a day and a list of approved foods. None of the processed food crap that I had in my house from my birthday was going to cut it. Luckily I had polished off the Costco-sized bag of Pirates Booty last week (Bad Jen!)
Anyway, so far so good. I am on my fourth "meal" as I type and I completed the first workout at lunch. It might be a logistical issue on days that I cannot get to the gym, but she has 2 "emergency at-home work outs" on the site. I do need to figure out which supplements I plan to take and twitch the meal schedule, but I figured I will do that as I go. Per the plan, you are supposed to eat within an hour of waking up. I wake up around 5 a.m. most days, but my body will not accept food for at least 1-2 hours, which puts me in the middle of my commute. So, we'll see.
One live and fit day at a time!
Did you ever try a similar plan? Did you find it difficult to adapt it to your lifestyle? What was the outcome?
