Quiet!

4 kids gone off to the first day of school, YAY!! It’s so quiet here and my brain is loving it!!

I have to admit, I love summer…but I love the school year also! Don’t get me wrong, My kids are great! They are all well behaved, self sufficient and low maintenance for the most part. They also help out doing chores daily and are really fun to hang out with. But, the mess of and chaos of having 4 teens around the house 24/7 is challenging! It’s also nice to feel that they are productive and on task like the school year forces them to be!

I am always in awe of homeschooling…there is no way I could do that!

I am fired up for the Diet bet contest, we’ve got close to 20 participants now and the group is fired up!! It’s going to be a great focus for myself too- I need to lose 4% of my body-weight– it’s 5.4 pounds that my skinny jeans will love being OFF my body, HA!! I also have a photo-shoot set at the end of that time…it’s going to be a fun motivator!

My POA for the week:

Mon: Back, Shoulders, Biceps and abs

http://buffmother.com/2015/02/16/fababs15/

Tue: Chest, triceps and abs + run intervals

Wed: Legs

REPEAT for Thurs, Fri, Sat

And Sunday off!

I am buffing, so I’ll add in some fasted 20 mins of biking about 4 days a week…not today though, I am so SORE!!

Time to go get it done!

One weird day

First off I want to give a big THANKS to everyone who posted such kind words in response to my facebook status update yesterday. I am truly blessed and thankful. Sometimes, I may LOVE others a bit too much and am shocked when they don’t love me back equally, HA!

But, that will not stop me from loving. Putting my heart out there, giving love freely, is what I am called to do and the alternative is not an option!! I love you!!

I am also so Thankful yesterday is OVER…it was ONE WEIRD DAY! Full of bad, good, bad, enjoyment and really bad stuff. PLUS, it turned out to be cycle day 1, go figure?

Today is a new day and I’m ready to take on whatever is in store for me!

No looking back only looking ahead…

One thing that I’ve really been slacking on are my diet choices. I have certain rules that I “KNOW” I should live by when it comes to healthy food selection that I have been breaking like crazy!! The rules I have for my diet are much to do with my body’s own sensitivities but also just common sense about healthy choices. I’ve been rebelling and it’s time to stop some of my bad habits NOW!

At the start of AUGUST I was determined to eliminate bread from my diet …I’ve been doing better but yesterday, I totally broke that rule! A double cheeseburger from McD’s and a Ruben at home last night– not good for my tummy! Bread seems to rip apart my digestive tract– I get bad issues from eating it, but yet I seem to tempt fate continually with it.

Another bad habit I’ve been getting into is allowing NITRATES into my diet– Just yesterday I had salami, beef jerky, deli meat and I’m sure that Mc D’s burger has all sorts of crap in it including Nitrates.

The 3rd thing rule I’ve been breaking is eating tons of dairy– especially cheese and butter. I am lactose sensitive and know diary causes tons of inflammation in my body. I must work to cut it down to a minimum.

So for the remainder of Aug my diet goals are simple:

NO BREAD

NO Nitrates

NO Dairy except for half and half in my morning coffee

Simple Enough– just have to stick to it!!

I have other bad habits at the moment, but these 3 items are my focus for now. By September I’ll be brave enough to address some others

My POA for the day:

Do ABS– make up for yesterday and Do Today’s challenge

Do A run– outside

Get hair done! This is overdoo…

then, “Chill Out” with my family– eat some GOOD Food and make a solid to do list for tomorrow. I’ve got lots to catch up on!!

Thanks for listening, LOVE YOU!!

My motto for last week “Muscle Burns Fat!” really helped me get in my lifting workouts and helped my mindset as “Boosting” hormones rose making the scale my enemy– I feel like I am stronger and leaner just a week into our ABS AUGUST challenge.

Where’s my EASY button??

I’ve had an off week of blogging. I think I wore myself out from doing the daily vlogs for the first half of my 70days to sexy…I have just STOPPED completely this week, HA! For the fall I Plan to post a vlog once in a while, but strive to do 1 really good video weekly.  Our FAB ABS is coming up with perfect timing! I need to regain some mojo!  REMEMBER…Be sure to sign up, share this link and encourage your friends to join us in www.TEAMBuffMother.com for our FREE ABS August challenge! http://buffmother.com/current-challenge/
Despite my lack of blogging, I have been online…I’ve had a couple interesting conversations on my Facebook profile recently.
Please be sure to click “Follow” so you don’t miss out on the fun!!
Yesterday Lynn inspired me to post about kids’ sports being too serious and then today a body shaming article made me post about how sad I am about women bashing other women!  Both conversations were very interesting!
Do you agree or disagree?? Kid’s sports (under 12) are too competitive and specialized, way too young! I feel that parents are often to blame for it, they have no goals of their own, so they transfer to the kids!
Holy cow…this is infuriating. Why wouldn’t women want to see an inspirational mother?
I’ve also been pushing our NEW Gym Angel give away and have a “big one” in the works for mid Aug!! Keep your eyes peeled for it!!
Do you need some more protein powder?? or how about a GREAT multi vitamin…Enter this give away now!!

Since Friday, I’ve done just 1 real workout– a hills run on Tuesday.  I can’t go into details, but I will share that this summer has been very rough.  Since May, I’ve been trying hard and getting a little momentum here and there– but then losing it quickly. By saying “trying hard” I don’t mean in just my fitness and diet. I mean in LIFE. My business, my relationships, my faith, etc…everything has been HARD!  Push, push, push with NOTHING being easy or automatic. Where on earth did I put my EASY BUTTON!??

 

STRESS has been high in my soul, on my spirit and has made me wonder at times if I am on the verge of being depressed? I’ve been having neck pain, crazy fatigue and on Tuesday evening developed a UTI!   It’s amazing how much my mental stress impacts my physical health! 

 

Thank God, in the last 2 days, a few BIG prayers have been answered and the stress is so MUCH LOWER.  I feel I am on the upswing.  I am determined to push into the upcoming weeks with HOPE and Positivity. It’s time to leave this stress in the dust and have an AWESOME ABS AUGUST!

Thanks for all your love and support. Please invite everyone you know to join in on our ABS AUGUST, I know they’ll thank you!!

Love,

Michelle

Once in a blue moon

Have you heard about the Blue Moon that is happening tonight? It’s the first blue moon in 3 years.  Basically a blue moon is when there are 2 full moons in 1 month’s time…the actual blue part may or may not happen. It depends on if there is a certain element in the earth’s atmosphere tonight.

 

Anyhow, I’m excited for it! AND I’m excited for our ABS AUGUST!! We’ve had a ton of people sign up for it– don’t miss out!!  Here’s the link to join:

 

http://buffmother.com/current-challenge/

 

Now, on to my plan. Today will be another recovery day. I have already been more active than the past 3 days already.  Doing some cleaning, cooking and plan to help with some other outdoor chores.  I’m glad to be feeling more energy!

 

I think by tomorrow I’ll be up for a workout…my goal is to workout all days in August (11mins minimum daily).

POA:

Aug 1- Chest/Triceps + intervals

Aug 2- Legs

Aug 3- START ABS AUGUST!! 20mins bike in am + Fab ABS day 1; evening run

Aug 4- Back/Shoulders/Biceps + Fab ABS day 2

Aug 5- Chest/Triceps + Intervals + Fab ABS Day 3

Aug 6- Legs + Fab Abs day 4

Aug 7- Run + Fab Abs day 5

 

The plan is a bit aggressive, I’ll certainly get sore, but I know I can do it!!

Have a great BLUE MOON!

Love,

Michelle
