Saturday Feb 21st; Day 20 Repeat day 11- 6pack of MUG: “Fab Abs” Day 11
The Key to your Motivation is to Encourage others!
Snow day on SPRING BREAK?? What’s up with that??? It hasn’t started just yet, but we are expecting it to be a snuggle day for us here in Arkansas.
I’ve posted 2 items today already~ please check them out:
Now onto my recap–
yesterday I ran and did a short leg workout.
the run was hard– 6 hills on our trail–it takes about 1 min up and 1.5 mins for me to get back down the trail– i run the entire time
the lifting wasn’t so bad– It was cut short due to a few reasons, but mostly because it was getting late and we needed to eat supper
Squats warm up 45×20, 95x10x2sets, 135x10x2sets, 155×10 Deads warm up 45×15, 135x10x2sets, 155×10 plus some–knee ups, knee extensions
Today, I’ll probably add in a few side lunges and other leg work between sets of my Back/Shoulder/Bicep and Ab workout
SOOOO….last night coming home from my daughter’s guitar lesson we drove by a lady selling bunnies– and I bought one, lol! It’s our Easter bunny!
The kids love it and my dog is obsessed with it. She wouldn’t go to sleep last night because she had to smell it/see it.
We’ll keep the bunny outside once it’s warmer and once it’s not a “baby” anymore, but for now I certainly hope the dog gets used to it soon.
My diet was better yesterday, but today “buffing” starts so it’ll be even better. I am NOT doing well on our challenge for the week– It’s seems I’ve been eating more cheese than ever– and I even ate a tortilla last night with my taco. I haven’t had one of those in ages!
Oh well…maybe I can have the next 4 days be BREAD and DAIRY Free (minus my coffee’s half-n-half– i can’t seem to ever cut that out!)
Have a marvelous day 19!!

VLOG & FUN STUFF:
My son is 12 and in the throws puberty. He’s just started to get that young man surge of hormones and a strong desire to be stronger!! We now go to a gym where we can workout together (previously the youngest age allowed was 14).
The plan is for him and I to get the workout done directly after school so the “EXCUSES” of dinner, homework, exhaustion, housework, etc…don’t get in our way! It’ll be a big comittment on my part and his~ BUT, It’ll be so worth it!
I am very confident that by summer with consistent effort he will be bigger and stronger than me! FUN!!
Today, I’ve been trying to catch up a bit on the work front…It’s crazy how FITNESS Season hits hard after the holidays!! I love it! I spent the morning answering emails and catching up on facebook.
Then I hit the gym for a quick yet effective 10 min run and 20 min back, shoulder, biceps and ab workout– GOOD STUFF.
Now it’s time to get outside!! It’s 55+ here and a GORGEOUS afternoon for another fire!! Love ya’s,
Don’t give any energy….to the NEGATIVES in your life.
Think of Negatives as a Monster who likes to eat- we’ll call him “NEGGIE the Monster”
Neggie loves eating compliant cookies, crabby apples, mean meat, yelling yogurt, depression donuts, guilt goodies, temper tacos, etc…
He’ll only get bigger and more ferocious!! If you find yourself feeding “Neggie”- STOP and run away!! He’s a dangerous MONSTER! When I feel “Neggie” getting hungry… I lean on my faith I know my God is Good, Positive, Lovely and He wants me to confidently ignore “NEGGIE” and press on towards my true purpose in life- to LOVE!
Instead of thinking about the negative trials and emotions we feel in life- feed the positives in your life by purposly giving them attention and focus= give the positive food! Purposely attack negatives by thinking of all the great blessings you have and focus on those!
Your relationships: family, kids, parents, husbands, friends, coworkers, sisters, your buffmother friends
Your abilities: to walk, run, swim, jump, dance, sing, talk, type, read, workout
Your possessions: house, your car, your job, your clothes, your computer
Your future possibilities: your next vacation (to the BuffMother gathering!!), your weight loss goal, your competition goal, your educational goal, your spiritual goals, your kids futures, an upcoming photoshoot , the upcoming holiday season
Focus on all the positives- they are endless- FEED THEM!! You will be amazed at how far you can go in life if you do!!!
I am focused on the positive blessings in my life today and I LOVE IT~ I am so blessed I can hardly contain myself. I have so many awesome friends, abilities, possessions and goals in life- It is so fun!! I can’t wait to see what the future has in store!
Physically I can see SQUATTING in my future~ I had a good chest/tri/ab workout yesterday to get my MOJO flowing!
Professionally I am excited to help other’s see squatting in their future
Let’s have a Powerfully positive day today!!!
Love you bunches,
NO Equipment, no problem– you can still get a great cardio workout and for your abs too!
Welcome to my workout room – this is my bedroom. It’s Saturday, January 13th, 2007. I’m going to show you a little bit about some fun ab work, some fun cardio that you can do without any equipment whatsoever. The basics of it are that you don’t need a jump rope, you don’t need any equipment. You can really do a good cardio workout and a good ab workout.
Now you can see that my abs are nice and thin today. They’re sucked in, good posture and you want to work those intercostal muscles so practice sucking it in, keeping the abs nice and tight while we do all of the movements. We’re shooting for long lean muscles. So up nice and tall, nice long lean midsection, sucking it in the entire time so that when we are relaxed it doesn’t pooch out. So we want to have it nice and firm like this. Ok.
First drill is just hopping. So just hopping in itself, keeping those abs in, just like jumping rope but without any upper body movement.
And we also have skiing jumping. You go side to side. You can get your arms into it like you’re skiing. Nice open chest, long and lean stomach. You can see the obliques working. Keep that stomach sucked, that’s half the battle. You can hear how much it works for cardio with my breathing.
And then you can go into the sprinter drills where you’re skipping. Take those nice exaggerated skip. Really crunching those abs. You can do many versions of this. You can go straight forward. You can go to the sides a little bit where you’re crunching your obliques. You can really exaggerate the crunch by crunching your upper body toward your knee even more. And then of course you want the long and lean motion in there. Sucking it in, chest high, knees high.
Do a minute of that, followed by a minute of recovery where you’re just jumping or maybe just walking in place. Don another minute of that and that’s called interval training. Where you take a minute working really hard, take a minute to recover, then go again. A lot of times you’re not recovered yet, but just get right back on it. You can do a minute of each kind to keep up the variety. Make sure you’re not favoring one side over the other. I can tell I’m favoring my right side a little bit so I’m going to work my left side a little harder. There we go.
So have fun with that. It’s a way to do cardio without any equipment.
