My Live Fit (WEEK 7) Recap

Ah, these workouts are getting harder!  But I think it’s because I’m working full-time now, so just getting the workouts in is a challenge.  I’m determined to stick with it though.  Week 7 was the worst week as far as food goes.  On Wednesday (the day before I went to Dallas to visit Cassie and Courtney), I went out to eat and got a big cheeseburger and skipped the gym.  In Dallas, I didn’t work out, so on Sunday, I had to fit in two workouts (back and the second leg day).  Also in Dallas, I really splurged on drinks and food.  Saturday night, I shared nachos with Cassie and was dipping mine in queso and sour cream.  I still think my body is responding though. 

Day 43: Arms + 20 minutes cardio (stair mill, alternating between 60-75)
Day 44:  Legs + Abs + 10 minutes cardio (stair mill, alternating between 60-75).  This leg workout was a KILLER.  The walking barbell “double” lunges were so hard.  I had to stop and take a breath after 10 reps.  My favorite leg exercise is the barbell leg squats, where you put one leg on a bench behind you while holding a barbell behind your neck and you squat down.  This are great for your quads.  

Day 46: Shoulders + Abs + 20 min cardio (stair mill, alternating between 60-75)

Day 47/Day 48: Legs & Back (No Cardio or Abs) 

I have a hernia (I think) that’s been bothering me recently, so I’m not doing abs since Thursday.  I’m going to go to the doctor to get it checked asap. 
I didn’t get photos from Week 1, 3, or 4.  I’m so ready to see what’s in store for the rest of the program.  I just had to start calculating calories for Week 7, so I’ll share that with you next week.  I keep thinking I will be SO READY come bikini time next summer. 🙂

Meet Megan

Hi! I’m Megan, mom to a thoughtful teenager and spunky young girl. We call Houston home and recently moved into our dream home. I traded my lawyer hat to become a full-time blogger in 2010. I love sharing my passion for affordable fashion, home decor, organization, & fitness to help inspire you to take care of you!


  1. I think it is so great what your doing and offering practical advice to working moms! And being honest about your weaknesses! God knows we all have them. For me though I thought you looked best atweek 5! You were still very toned there and still looked healthy! But again that's just me 🙂

  2. I'm happy you are still doing well with the program, despite working full time again and going out of town! It is also nice to hear that you indulge sometimes too. 🙂 I eat very healthy but I admit I don't eat clean all the time and it is great to know I am not alone and that you can do that and still look as awesome as you do! Great job!

  3. You're looking amazing, so inspiring!

    I'm wondering if your Husband is as into fitness/health as you are? How does that work in your home? My husband is so into fitness and i well am not. I find it hard to seek a balance between him being so into working out and I am not. Wondering how what your dynamic is and how you find that balance with your Hubby.

  4. You look spectacular! Good for you and all your hard work and dedication. I fell of the wagon and need to get back on. I only wanted/needed to lose 10 more lbs and instead gained 5! Just in a rut that I need to shake, but your photos and words are definitely inspiring:)

  5. You look GREAT Megan! Your body is definitely responding! It does not hurt to indulge every once in a while. And thanks for being honest! I LOVE seeing these updates. Cool you came to Dallas…that's where I'm from (McKinney)!
