BIG News!! a BOOTY challenge and a MAP!!


Hello!!
Well after being rather good on my eats and actually getting some of this water weight out of me during my cardio session yesterday I weighed in at 125 this am. I feel GOOD! Good enough to take some final bikini challenge photos today 🙂

My little TIA was sick in the night and had a fever again when waking up this am…so I am not sure about my gym plans for today.

One thing that is happening this week is VBS for the kids–All of them!! 6:30pm to 9pm!! So my DH and I get to have several little dates.

Last night we drove around, dreaming of a buying a different house…needless to say–I think we’ll stay put for at least 1 more year, but with us you never know :devious:

AND then we went to the golfing range and hit some balls…now I am not a golfer, but I would love to be! I did the best EVER at the range- which is not saying much since I have only “golfed or gone to the range” maybe 6 times in my life ….I actually connected and hit several good shots. Maybe I am a natural??

We had a blast together– and if Tia kicks her fever, tonight we’ll have another date!

My DH has been working out HARD for the past 3 weeks–and he is getting great results on his BUFFMOTHER program. I am so proud of HIM :clap:

This is my final day as a 30 year old…so I’d better get crankin’ and make something happen!

I am so pumped about the BOOTY challenge- I want a 14 year old gymnast butt!! You can join in on the fun in our Team BuffMother! Rally Room
THE BOOTY Challenge!!

the official start date will be June 19th and the end date will be July 7th.

The goal of these almost 3 weeks will be to lift, sclupt, de-fat, obliterate and FOCUS on your booty….everyday you need to think BOOTY, BOOTY, BOOTY 😎

In order to participate please post some if not all of the following: Post B4 pics, measurements, goals and booty dreams!

Let’s be relentless about our BOOTYS!!
You can accomplish a lot in just a couple weeks, you will be amazed-

Rock it,
Michelle

Day off Sort of :)

What would a REAL day off be like??? I can hardly remember…when we went to LA a couple weeks ago that was a taste of it and I LIKED IT!!

Anyhow…today I’m not working out due to my neck/shoulder injury or whacked outta place issue. The chiro can’t get me in until tomorrow…so that’s why I am just hanging out today.

Me and the girls went for 2 walks short (so far) and played in the pool for a bit.

Now we are off to go get BUBBA- GUNNER Smiling from school…he goes to a year round type so he’s in until the 24th…I don’t like that!! It doesn’t feel like summer vacation yet because of it. Oh well, it is easier on me to have him in school.

I am smitten with the STAIRMILL!!

Bench press- right here I had a brain fart- I was laying down to start my first set and a man came up saying something to me (I couldn’t hear, my I-pod was too loud)…he was telling me I forgot to put a 25 on one side of the BAR~~ I was so embarrassed!

Then I ran…
warm up 8 min then a potty break
then intervals

2 hard at 10.5 recovery at 8.5
2 hard at 11 recovery at 8.5
then 2 extra mins of recovery at 8.5

I would have done a couple more–I felt GREAT but I knew my legs were already super sore, so I decided to lay off today.

My realization today”it hurts a lot less to run with sore quads than with sore hammies”

Have a super night…I am gonna watch the UFC on pay per view, hee, hee!! I can’t wait to see all the fights again and hear the commentators, etc!

LEG Day!! KILLLER!!


Okay~ I have not done legs in about a week…or longer! That seems like forever to me 🙂

I slept great last night and hopefully made up for my staying up all night in LA….
Yesterday was a major recuperation day and I managed to run but it was so so HOT- I couldn’t run as far or as long as I wanted, from now on I need to get my runs done earlier, later or on the treddy at the gym 😛

One really fun thing is that I have a new personal training client—MY DH!!
We wrote up a plan for his diet and workouts on Sunday and he’s been following it to a T! I am very excited for him…I guess I should tell you all that he is in rather good shape already, just the stress of working, missing workouts, lack of having a “PLAN” and lack of eating correctly have kept him from being elite in the past. BUT his focus right now is amazing and that makes me very proud.

Here is my KILLER leg workout:

Warm up- tanning
Sissy Squats (ss)-25reps low squeeze butt
Squats:
45×15
95deepx10
135×10
145×10

Dead lifts (romainian)
