VEGAS!! and Join Every Day in MAY

Today is the 3 year anniversary of our VEGAS trip…I love the memories I have from that fun time!!  I’d love to get my body back to how it felt then!! I will do it!! I’ve decided to do an EVERY DAY IN MAY challenge again this year, please join me!  The goal is to workout every day in May for at least 11 mins.

Today has been a much better day than yesterday, yay!! I did end up sleeping in this morning and it made such a difference~ I seriously need more sleep than the average human!

It’s HUMP DAY and Guitar lesson day here for us…I’ll be heading to pick up my 3 sweet little ladies from school so we can get to my Gracie’s lesson.  She’s been slacking on her guitar lately, but now that track is over, I am hoping she’ll get a bit more serious about it!

I got up this morning finally at about 10:30 and decided to hit the trail for a run instead of sitting on the boring bike.  I ran intervals 6 total then a walk jog back up the hill– total time was 22 mins.  I also did a few drills after the run.  Came back home and ate.

Do you like my long socks? I have to wear them so the weeds don’t get me so much, lol!

My weight was up a lot yesterday, I think I was 140 actually, so today it felt nice to see the scale at 137 again.  Ovulation Hormone spike is almost over and i expect to see a nice low weight come Friday!!

Time for me to go clean some more…I opted to stay home from the gym today to do that instead. Seriously, I must be going loony tunes!!

It’s the the first week of November and can’t believe how quickly the Holidays are coming.  Just a little over a week ago I was outside in my bikni!  It felt good in so many ways!

HT Book~ Foundation #3: Believe

 

Wednesday was full of excitement and fun!!  My tummy was finally feeling more normal, thanks for your prayers!!

 

I met up with  Lylna Thao for the AWESOME an jujitsu lesson yesterday~ I had so much fun learning some new sweeps, escapes and mounts with my partner in crime Emily McArthur!! LOVE these Ladies!! I do plan on taking more lessons as it fits into my life, plus attending your women’s boxing at 6:30pm class in Rogers on Tues and Thurs very soon!! — with Lylna Thao and Emily McArthur.

Went shopping for food after wards and then came home to workout and take my Bikni day 3 pics:

Then last night I got in my 3rd lifting workout for the week.   Back/Shoulders/Biceps with some abs

 

I’ll try to recall it from memory: Warm up: Bike 6 mins and DB Lat rows 35#x10

 

Pull ups

One set inverted One set of 6 NEGATIVES, HOLY WOW!!

One set of inverted

paired with upright rows 15#DB’sx10 45#curl bar x10 x2sets

 

Bent over rows 55#x10x3sets paired with bicep curls 55#x8reps

 

KB bent over lat rows

40#x10x3sets paired with lateral raises 15’Sx8x3sets

 

Standing BB Military press

45×10 65x8x2sets

paired with bicep curls

65x8x2sets

 

also did a set of snatches and shrugs.

 

 

Today, I weighed 131 but my DH didn’t believe it, HE thinks I look really thin and ripped!!  Nice to know that my composition is changing,  the workouts DO pay off!!

 

I WILL get in my run– maybe outside?? I’ll have to see how warm it feels out there.  Also, chest, triceps and abs are on tap too!!

 

How are you doing?

I am very pleased with my energy levels, drive and focus when it comes to getting in my workouts NOW.  It was tough the first few weeks due to being busy and having the tummy flu…but I feel like it’s really coming together this week!!

 

Do you feel any different?

YES!  I can feel/see progress in both my mojo,  body compostion, strength and fitness levels!! Typically I see this happen almost every FEBRUARY as the days get longer and temps warm up.  I can’t wait to see how much energy I get in MARCH!!

 

 

Are you seeing results?

Yes mainly in more consistent energy levels.  More muscle definition and in my aerobic fitness!  The scale has not been moving down as much as I’d like, but I KNOW that number is relative and would be moving down if I could keep my diet a bit tighter!

 

What obstacles are you facing?

Diet issues!

I’ve been struggling with food choices and frustration over my food sensitivities.  I feel like I have to “pick my battles” in regards to what is worse– eating some items that I’m sensitive to or just not eating at all?

And…Hip/pelvic pain flare up~ not sure what’s going on here? but I think it may have just been some of the flu symptoms?? It’s been better the past couple days

 

Are you still on fire/focused?

Yes, my focus is better now than at the start of the contest!!

 

What does relentless mean to you?

never quitting! I’m in this for the long haul and am not afraid to lead by example in that belief!

 

Hope you are feeling BLESSED today!!

Love,

Michelle

I overdid it!

I over did it on the 3 workouts I did M-T-W so I eneded up needing to take 2 days off instead of just one….but today the plan is to hit it again. Chest, Tris and ABS~ my back is a little more bothersome to me today. It may be from my cleaning up the back yard yesteray. It was a mess…anyhow I CLEANED the back yard in my bikni! After wards I layed in the sun and read a book- it was wonderful!!

Today so far, I’ve been catching up with my e-mails and with my FB friend and with you! I’ve been so busy working on taxes that I’ve been a little MIA~ sorry about that!! It’s good to see you are staying fired up and have such awesome MOJO! I LOVE YOUR DEDIDCATION!!!

I’ve been listening to this song over and over this morning- the lyrics are below
Brandie Carlie, The Story

All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am

So many stories of where I’ve been

And how I got to where I am

But these stories don’t mean anything

When you’ve got no one to tell them to

It’s true…I was made for you

I climbed across the mountain tops

Swam all across the ocean blue

I crossed all the lines and… I broke all the rules

But baby I broke them all for you

Because even when I was flat broke

You made me feel like a million bucks

Yeah you do and I was made for you

You see the smile that’s on my mouth

Is hiding the words that don’t come out

And all of my friends who think that I’m blessed

They don’t know my head is a mess

No, they don’t know who I really am

And they don’t know what I’ve been through but you do

And I was made for you…

Have a super SATURDAY!!

-Michelle
