REVISIT

HI Ya!!

Day 14 of our 21 day contest!

Is your Hot Hiney “HURT?”~ Day #14~

REVISIT your GOALs~ http://www.teambuffmother.com/topic/-goal-buttday-1hh-

Here are mine again:

My butt habit to incorporate~ Lift heavier! I’ve been in “recovery mode” from a neck injury for the past couple months…now that I am healthy again it’s time to challenge myself on the weights.  Lower reps and higher weights~ Heavy lifting provides amazing muscle growth!

My butt habit to eliminate~ Sitting! get off my HINEY! I’ll be using my standing work station

Yesterday was a good day outside.

I got in a Track workout:

Run 2 laps for warm up Run 200m x2 (time: ?, 31) Run 50 acceleration- had Tia video this…looked slow and need to get on my toes! Run 300m- 46sec…during this one my left hip flexor was bothering me

Run 300m- 49sec- ran slower on purpose due to hip

Cut workout short, hip flexor was too bothersome. I’m wondering if it was a cramp?  I’ll be nice to it for a couple days and see.

 

Then I mowed, brush hogged and weed whipped for several hours.

I also ACCIDENTALLY took some advil I had in my hand to give DH. I went into autopilot mode and swallowed them down with my water– silly! lol!

 

Anyhow, today I plan to get in a good workout and some sun! Right now I’m watching the UFC event from last night– LOVE MMA!!

Let’s have an AWESOME final Week of our BOOTY contest!!

Recovered?

Holy cow! I am not quite sure i am recovered from Vegas yet???  I apparently was expending a lot of energy over the weekend, lol! Which by the way I’ve been putting together a “vegas recap” blog and should have it complete today!

 

I spent yesterday catching up on work, cleaning, laundry and took in a bit of sun, since it was the last day of it for the week.  My workout yesterday was Legs: Squats- high set was 155 x10 hip twists Bulgarians- high set was 30# db’s–holy cow that was hard! Knee Extensions Hip lifts Standing hip ups Hip circles Butt Pops

Knee ups on roman chair

I had our booty contest on my mind during the workout– I’ll demo some of the moves during the contest for you~ The song “Sexy Bit$#” was playing on my Ipod when I too my #workoutproof pic, can you tell?

I ended up having to cut the workout short- I had to get to the post office before it closed. BY THE WAY! if you won a shirt in the S2S contest, please message me your address and what shirt you want.

 

Then it was off to the races– guitar lessons, wal-mart, more cooking and cleaning in time for Hubby to get home from a work trip (he was in MN yesterday)…Once he was home, I cuddled up with him to CELEBRATE his successful trip — my hubby is such a great provider for us!

 

 

Today I slept in until 9am~ crazy! I am still beat!  Anyhow, my little TIA was home sick on a day she was suppose to celebrate her benchmark success with a “walk to sonic”…since she missed I picked her up and we “drove to sonic”

 

After I got her back to the school I hit the gym

My workout today was Back (and shoulders and biceps and as always ABS!):

 

Lat pulls

75×10 90x10x3 Rows 75×10 90x10x3 Calf Raises

70x15x4 (various foot positions) Knee ups on bench

25 reps x2 sets– + finished with single leg on second set T-bar row machine (never done this one b4) 45x10x3sets One arm lat rows 40’sx10x3sets Bent over lateral raises– super focused on rear delts 10’sx10x2 12’sx10 Hammer Curls 20’sx15 25’sx10 Shoulder press machine 60×10 frontward + 60x 10 backwards 75x10x2 90×10

Lower back extensions with booty focus- 2 sets

 

Then cardio– working on my VO2max– Recumbent bike 23mins with about 4 more intense intervals of 1 min; 30 seconds; 1:20 and 1min

Then elliptical- forward and backward intervals for 20 mins- first half at level 5; second half at level 6

 

I plan to run on the treadmill after my food digests @ about 4pm-

I got some new shoes!! Actually 2 pair~ wore the white and hot pink ones today:

 

What is your goal for May? workout daily? quit the dessert habit? build shapely muscle? lose weight? …My goal for may is to fuel my body for my running/track workouts and forget about the SCALE– this month is all about PERFORMANCE!  Diet is always a hard item for me– partly because I can’t eat many carbs and I’m always trying to “walk the line” of getting enough, but not too many.  Anyhow it’s my focus for May
Today I’ve had 4 eggs over easy cooked in butter 1 cutie
2cups coffee with half and half
1 tater tot and 1 mozzarella stick– took Tia to lunch
3 large straw berries large chicken salad: Romain, spinach, pea pods, carrot, cashews, shredded sharp cheddar and ranch dressing
Gotta go get a bit more work caught up on and finish my Vegas recap post–
Keep up the great focus!!
Love,
Michelle

booty ~ shake that thing!

HI ladies!! We’ll we’ve made it through to THURSDAY and I’ve made it through to be “BUFFING” once again!! YAY!!  I had a very successful modified boosting– it was all about maintaining my weight and uppping the volume of my cardio. It went really well the first week of boosting– then the 2nd week was more of a struggle, YET I am here starting my buffing at 128#’s.  I expect that in the next week I’ll be down at my goal of 126 for VEGAS!! YAY!!

Fyi- I am still sore from my track workout- especially in the bottoms of my feet and quads/hip flexors.

 Yesterday’s workout was a good upper body day- I did 3 rounds of 7 mins on my upright bike through out the day.

pull ups 3sets x 7 reps

Bench press 95x10x3sets

Rows with my 40# KB 3 serts of 10 Incline flys 30’sx10

Dips- 1 set on bench the other 2 sets of 7 reps  regular dips (on my dip station)

I also did one round of this- it was posted by a BuffMother member Theresa of Omaha— she’s crazy and did this in a hotel in vegas last week.  All 10 rounds with little rest!

I did one round and told her to Give me 10 days, thenI should be able to complete the 10 rounds, lol– did 1 today!! It took 4 mins

I’m getting very excited for VEGAS!! the weather for our trip looks great!!

BIG NEWS!! our next contest will be a BOOTY CONTEST!   I’ll announce it and start promoting it as soon as we return from VEGAS!

right now finishing up the S2S contest results and VEGAS is enough for me to handle–but come May my booty is where my attention will be!!

It’s going to be 3 weeks long– start day may 6th- final day may 26th

Be sure to get your friends to join us!!

Here’s my workout proof pic from yesterday– with my friend “BuffBunny”…she hangs out in my gym!
