i sick :(

I fought the good fight FOR DAYS, but last night my body gave in and got the cold that’s been going through our household.

I’m here sitting inside SICK! BUT the sunny side is that Tons of GREAT THINGS are on TV today– the AFC, the NFC and the UFC!  Getting ready to watch them now.

I ran a killer workout yesterday AFTER cleaning the coop and starting a fire….

15 hills– 5 steep, 5 fast low grade–walking down recovery, 5x 30 sec with 30 sec walk/30 jog recovery.  It feels really good to be progressing with my running again. After the lifting I did some upper body lifting.

Isolation Ab Crunch

Isolation AB CRUNCH by BuffMother!


Howto & Style



Right side
Quality vs Quantity
Left Side
Mind/Muscle Connection

On the right: This will work the right side of my stomach and I’m going to come bring my right arm up to my right knee. Squeeze. Make sure to exhale all of your air.

Think more quality vs quantity when you’re doing your ab work. Exhale. Lower nice and slowly. Remember the eccentric abs – you want to resist the eccentric.

Ok, other side, Left:. I put my hand on my stomach so I can feel where I’m working. 

The mind/body connection is powerful in your ab work. If you can’t feel your muscles contracting yet, pretend like you do. Imagine that you do, and soon you will be.

10 on each side is plenty to start off with. Go until you feel the burn and then do 2 more. That’s a good beginner creed for that.

Let’s GO!! 2 weeks left~
There is so much that can be done in just 2 weeks, so LET’s GO!

My personal goals are to get in several workouts and runs…I’ve been slacking on my runs since the July running campaign ended- -so today I start again with my EVEN day running.  I’m gonna go in just a bit.

My week last week ended up very good~ here’s the recap:
m-killer upper body workout and intervals on elliptical
t-killer leg workout–my butt was so sore!
W- beginner upper body buffing workout at home and some wii fit
Th-chest tris
F-back, sh, bi, run on treddy
S-20 min warm up cardio; legs

so 6 days of lifting!!! and 2 intervals~
pretty good~

this week’s boosting poa looks like this:
m-chest and run
t- legs again
w- back and run
Th- chest
F-run in am and legs
S- back  and some steady cardio
Sunday= off

I am ready to GO! and remembering “no excuses”
Go!! Go!!! Go!!!


What happened to WED?
I am sorry…I totally missed blogging yesterday?  What happened to me yesterday???–welll WHAM! HORMONES!!!  it was c-day 18 and my hormones have started messing with my brain/body,  I guess I am making it sound worse than it was because I actually had a pretty good day!!!
It started off with cleaning out my Daughter’s closet (thanks for the inspiration on that Lisa)…then I got ready for my massage!!!  I hadn’t had one for well over 2 months~ and it felt so great, but my booty was sore from Tuesday’s leg wo which made it a little bit painful.

Anyhow~ I was very happy to have my booty sore, but MAN!! IT is SOOOOOOOO sore!  I added in BB lunges, a few good mornings, a slightly different DL variation, abductions and lower back extensions to my workout and it is KILLING ME!  By 6pm last night I couldn’t even sit on my butt it was so sore– OUCHIE!!!

I did manage to go for a little run around the block with the kids and do the beginner buffing upper body workout from my book last night~ oh and some wii fit– I was only 29 last night 🙂  LOVED IT!!

I am considering making today a relaxed workout day–I am so sore still that cardio sounds very painful and so does lifting~ we’ll see– OH and I had planned on taking pics today-I am regretting that I didn’t take them on TUES, I felt my leanest that day, so-I may wait until tomorrow for those too, I’ll have to see how I feel in a little bit….silly hormones they are making me very silly today.

Okay!  I am going to clean out another toy box right now while I listen to Joyce Meyer on my Iphone.
I’ll be back later!

Itty bitty booty~

That’s what kind of workout I had, an itty bitty booty workout, lol!

Since I have practically only worked legs 2-3 times over the last 2 months I figured I needed to start off slow with my leg workout:
warm up r-bike 7 mins- this actually felt good!
leg extensions
70×20 warm up (first 10 straight, next 10 toes out)
110×10+5 toes out
paired with leg curls
70×20 warm up(first 10 straight, next 10 toes out)

45×15 warm up and one set calf raises 45×10 (still sore!)

Walking lunges
55#on back x30 steps x 2 sets
paired with dead lifts
55#x10 SLDL, 10 Romainian x 2 sets

and that was it!!

I will still be sore, but hopefully not DYING SORE!!

Today while “working” I found this fun little quiz…What SUPERHERO are you??
Here are my results:
You are Hulk

Wonder Woman
The Flash
Iron Man
Green Lantern
You are a wanderer with
amazing strength.
