Mojo is on the rise!

HEW!! I’ve had a weird week…It’s been very busy, very good and bad all at the same time, lol!! The GREAT part of my week has been the SUPER Start of the Six to Sexy contest!!  I’m so excited for us to have stellar results!! The MOJO is definitely there and we are going to continue to have a blast as we move along this FALL!!

 

The not so great part of my week…I got horrible chigger bites last weekend while i was in the woods, it took until Thursday to finally be feeling more normal. Then, add to that a nasty bruise cut on the back of my heel from moving a chair on Tues, I was limping all over on Wednesday. All those issues are better now– it’s going to be a great day and weekend ahead!

 

My Mojo towards being SEXY is rising!  I had a much better day yesterday (a rest day)…feeling good about life right now!

Today’s about my GARAGE make over~
I am working towards clearing it out to move all my gym equipment into it. I have to give away a bunch of stuff and also put a bunch of stuff in the attic or other sheds.  I also have an area that never got painted to finish.  Once I get at least half of it empty I can buy flooring and have my HOME GYM assembled. It’s a nice piece of equipment that would really ADD to my workouts!

 

 

Other things on my TO DO List:

  • complete my starting stats (pics and thoughts already done)
  • bring Gunner to a b-day party
  • trip to post office
  • workout- upper body lift (a mish-mosh of NON-SORE bodyparts) and run

We’ll time to GO!!

I’ll be back in a bit!

Feeling the MOJO

My Mojo towards being SEXY is rising!  I had a much better day yesterday…feeling good about life right now!
Next week we’ll really be able to start digging into the essence of what we need to do to feel and BE SEXY!  I can’t wait to see how my sexy mojo increase as I apply strategies to enhance my confidence and beauty!  I LOVE THIS CONTEST!!

Yesterday my workout was a baby one again, just playing it safe!  Working out on ANTIBIOTICS can be very dangerous!  They rob your body of all the good bacteria specifically the natural “lube” that’s within your joints.  Ligament and Tendon damage can occur if you push too hard while you are on antibiotics. Once I became aware of this, I started to really listen my body and alter my workouts during “medicated” times.

The workout went like this:

Light Lat pulls- 4 sets Light seated rows- 4 sets Stretching and some abs between sets Lower back hyper extensions- 3 sets A short treadmill run– Intervals for 10 mins– first 2: 1 min on, 1 min off~~ Next 4: 1 min on, 30 sec off

My shoulder/neck was really sore from the massage I had Thursday but It was a million times better than it had been on Mon-Wed!! Thank you Jesus!

Today, I have “mommy duty” running the kids to an fro to Church events and a birthday party.  It’s supposed to cloud up and rain this afternoon…so not sure what’s in store for the rest of my day besides doing a light leg workout.  I have just 2 more days on my antibiotic…Monday I’ll be back to normal workouts for the most part, YAY!!

Have a super Saturday!! LOVE YA!!

Joy is in Confidence~ Shine in 49: Day 30

Is is possible to be happy if you are continually questioning your value? CONFIDENCE in who you are id key to having JOY! I know who I am! I am a daughter of my Lord God and joint heir with JESUS!

“The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.” (Romans 8:16-17)

If that’s not enough information to give me confidence and JOY I don’t know what is?

Know who you are!
You are born for greatness, born to do amazing powerful wonderful thing in order to show the world LOVE!
That’s my goal and that’s my JOY!

 

Today’s BuffMother “FIT tip”-POSTURE!!! Look slimmer, feel taller, convey confidence
with good posture. Practice walking with
head parallel to the ceiling, chest lifted, shoulder back, abs in, and
…SMILE! PLUS don’t forget to keep perfect
posture when you are working out- no slouching on the treadmill, elliptical or
when lifting allowed!!

Posture shows confidence and is so inviting and attractive! Let your JOY shine through your posture!

I plan to work a bunch on my posture this week…and some posing. I’m prepping for an upcoming photo-shoot. I will be working a promo on July 10th in Springfield MO. My “A game” is needed! Not sure when I’ll do the photo-shoot…but soon! Each year I try to do one close to my birthday. It’s a good way to celebrate each additional year of buffness!!

ON tap for me today is:

  • Training programs for Clients
  • Planning Summer VACATION time for kids and I 🙂
  • Have a KICK A$$ workout at 3pm- Full body HEAVY!!
  • DIET hard!- – I am planning on being perfect with it- time to lean up this body! I wanna be shredded for JUNE 14th!

Something really amazing I want to share is that I ran a several HARD sprints on Saturday after a 10 min run. BTW- these sprints are only 100m long- hydrant to hydrant on the street in front of my house. the AMAZING part is how insanely sore I got in my core- my ABS and inner-costial muscles/tissues are SORE!

Amazing how I didn’t even know those muscles existed until yesterday, lol! SPRINTS work!!! But a word of caution: EASE Into doing them!! Start with just a couple and work up from there!

Let’s “work it” this week!! Stand tall and confident in your identity!! You are INCREDIBLE!!

Branded~ Shine in 49: Day 23

Today our 23rd day of contest and I’m hitting it harder than ever!! Hope you are on fire too!

I was reading part of a book by the preacher T.D. Jakes this morning. It was the first time I’ve ever read anything of his. He seems to be a good writer…He wrote about that we should all “BRAND” ourselves. Similar to how Oprah has branded herself. When we hear the name Oprah~ we know what kind of quality she stands for and we expect that something with her name on it should be a certain way. Each of us should be able to name at least 3 things that are the qualities of our personal BRAND. For instance this would be and example mine:

“Hi, I am Michelle Berger….my mission is to help women by giving them hope to persue their dream body, life and legacy! My method is to lead by example in my own life, showing love to others and giving encouragement to women who God brings into my life.”

Another example of a brand is how NARNIA branded their movies with a beautiful LION~ As depicted in this picture.

Have you ever thought about what your brand is? or what you want your brand to BE?

Yesterday we (hubby and I) lifted CHEST~
here’s how that went:
6 min r-bike

Bench
45×20
one set push ups (15reps)
95×10
115×8
135×6 (help with 2)
145×4 (help with 2)
155×4 (help with 4)
135×5 (help with 3)

Dips
9,7,5

Cable flys (one arm at a time)
30x12x2
40×10

Bench dips
3 sets to fail

knee ups
2 sets of 15

I cooked a chicken for dinner~ it was good and will have some of that meat for eats today!
I’m CERTAIN that people are watching you,
What are you advertising?
I want to advertise glorious shining confidence!!

Think about it,
Michelle

Be good while I'm gone!

HI everyone!!

I got it an good workout this morning- back and Bi’s and a run with my friend Nicole.  And I’ve been working towards packing and getting final preps ready for the trip.  I am a little disappointed that I didn’t make my goal of 122 for my trip, but I am at 125, which is a good healthy  happy weight for me! I’ll be able to wear my beach clothes and bikini with confidence 🙂

The plan is to completely unplug during the trip- I’m not even brining my computer!  AHHHHH!!! Beach

See ya next week- I’ll be back the 26th!! Be good while I am gone!!! 

Love,

Michelle

p.s. If you need anything, my Helper, miss Darcie (crystabel) will be manning the Rally Room and also be available via email at customerservice@buffmother.com

"All Star" Kathy K. of NE

Kathy of NE!

I was introduced to BuffMother by my friend and fellow chiropractor, Lisa Staudt.  At that point in my fitness “career”, I had been doing Jazzercise 5-6 days a week for 6 years.  I was frustrated due to the fact that I was working out hard, yet getting nowhere.  I felt like I was losing muscle and shape and gaining weight.  Talking with Lisa about BuffMother just made sense.  I wasn’t sure if I wanted to give up Jazzercise, but my true love had always been lifting weights.  I liked the idea of being able to do whatever exercise program you wanted.  I was also intrigued by the thought of my hormones directing how I worked out.  I think everything in our body is connected in some way, shape or form. I am thrilled with my weight loss, inches lost/gained, the way I look and how my clothes fit.  But I’m more excited to know that I am STRONG!  It has given me the confidence that I had lost over the years.  It’s very intimidating to step into a gym after 18+ years.  Having the knowledge and “plan” from “Hormonal Timing” helped me ease back in.
