Jamie Eason's Turkey Muffins & Ab Workout

Today's work out went well! I went to the gym with a plan and killed my workout. Sometimes when I lift weights I feel like I take too long of a break between sets. Not today though! I worked out Back, Biceps, Abs and did HIIT. The time is currently 10 PM (past my bed time) and I can tell my back is gonna be sore in the AM. 

5/16/2012 Workout: 

Rows 10-12 Reps 4 Sets
Lat Pull downs 10-12 Reps 4 Sets (slow during the negative)
DB Rows 10-12 Reps 4 Sets
Chin Ups (Assists) 10-12 Reps 4 Sets (slow during the negative)
EZ Bar Preacher Curls 10-12 Reps 4 Sets (slow during the negative)
DB Curls 10-12 Reps 4 Sets 
Cable Machine Curls 10-12 Reps 4 Sets (slow during the negative)
DB Hammer Curls 10-12 Reps 4 Sets (slow during the negative)

HIIT consisted of 30 second all out sprints on the track, followed by 30 second walk repeat 12 times.

Abs- Finally I gave the ab pulldowns a try. Gosh, how come I didn't try this workout sooner?!?! Most people in the gym use the rope but I personally like using the bar. The rope hurts my hands. 

I'm going to give this ab routine posted below a try. I can't wait until I can go to the gym again!

The rest of my ab workout I had to complete at home (Insanity's Insane Abs). I was late getting to the gym and I had to pick my daughter up from daycare by a certain time. Next time I won't be late!!

My meal planning wasn't spot on today. I forgot to prep my chicken and I was starving so I ate way too many almonds! I know I know, almonds are a healthy fat, but too much and it's just FAT! I also didn't drink a gallon of water today. I came close but still not enough and that's probably why I didn't have that feeling "full" effect today. 

As I posted yesterday, I'm following Jamie Eason's LiveFit diet plan. For those who don't know who Jamie Eason is she is an American fitness model and writer. She is also a former NFL cheerleader and winner of the World's Fittest Model competition. She is currently a full-time spokesperson for, and she has her own column in Oxygen magazine.

Jamie has a few recipes posted on I made gave her Turkey Muffins recipe the other day. In her meal plan she suggest eating these twice a day during meals 2 and 5. To be honest, they don't taste bad at all, a little bland but not bad. I wonder how long it'll take for me to get sick of them since I'm eating a total of 4 of them a day. LOL

I'm sure Turkey Muffins sounds kind of scary, but really all it is is a turkey meatloaf made in a muffin tin (to separate serving sizes). So go ahead, give them a try....They are super easy to make!

Nicole Wilson just posted her turkey muffin recipe on FitnessRX.
