Like diets and university majors, the best way to choose a workout regimen is to choose one you can stick to. I’ve toyed with doing Jamie Eason’s LiveFit trainer since she published it, and I think that now is a great time to do it. I noted in the past that the workouts can take a really long time, but at the moment, I have plenty of time for the foreseeable future.
Unfortunately with my ankle still recovering, Supercharged isn’t viable for another few weeks, but the LiveFit split-style workouts mean I don’t have to put too much pressure on my ankle each time I work out.
I started today, at a whim, as you do. I initially intended to just do some HIIT training on the cycle, but, well, one does not simply walk into the gym and not lift anything. Thanks to the excellent Wifi service in the gym, I found the LiveFit trainer and completed Day 1. It was good. It was hard. But it was just what I wanted in a workout today.
The only thing that I will not be following is the diet plan. Too hard. I have a handle on my current plan, and if I need to, I’ll increase the kilojoule limit. Food and cooking is one of my personal interests, and I know I can make my preferences work for my limits. I guess I just don’t want to be told what to eat, especially if it means chicken breast multiple times a day. Srsly. Thigh and wings are where it’s at. I’d much rather enjoy what I eat, even if it’s only a little bit.
So tomorrow, Tony and I have planned to go to the gym, and I’ll do Day 2 of the LiveFit trainer.
I’m already excited.
