Lovely GOOD Friday

Happy Good Friday!! I love days like today– such an awesome reminder of LOVE and happiness!!

I’m feeling much, much better today! Thanks for all your well wishes about my neck and business thoughts.

Today’s contest post:

MY 6 Daily Goals–

  1. Cycle day- 13 all is good on the hormone front.  I feel clear minded, happy, focused, more healthy and I was hungry this morning when I woke up– Metabolism is alive!!
  2. Weight- 131.0…back down a couple pounds of water weight after getting a bit more active yesterday and staying away from the advil. I expect to be back under 130 by early next week.  This injury won’t keep me from my goals!!
  3. Sexy To do’s- I need to shave today. Also, I think I’ll go tanning again
  4. Workout- I’ll spend a little time at the gym doing some light weight training on the machines.  It’ll be a “therapy” type session
  5. Meal POA- embrace my hunger a bit….I’ve been really a big time baby about being a bit hungry.  The second I’m hungry, I’ll eat.  That’s fine most of the time, but not right now while I’ve been less active and if I want to attain my goal by VEGAS I’ll need to “embrace my hunger” a bit more!
  6. Sexy Actions- Today’s topic for the contest…I’m excited to read some of your ideas.  Hubby’s got Good Friday off, so I think I’ll be able to be a bit more flirty with him and get some “quality” time with him!!

Enjoy the day!!

Love,

Michelle

The Countdown… 13-12-11

The countdown!!! 13-12-11…to my AZ  trip is ON!! and so is buffing!!   I would really like to get a couple pounds off this body in time for my trip and ADD some CARDIO fitness to my HEART & Lungs in the process.

So my thought was to do a little tiny bit of running- I think I’ll start with a slow mile 🙂  I’ve been avoiding cardio and any jarring activity due to my sciatic injury (which started in Dec-which I think may have to do with my L-5 disc from MMA class)- the past 4 months I’ve really not RAN and I’ve barely done any other cardio.  the past couple weeks I have started to do a bit more upright bike and stair mill….but now I think I’ll add in a tiny bit of running and more intervals on other low impact equipment.  My butt/hip/back is still bothering me (but it’s way better than is was in Jan/Feb/March) especially when I rise from a sitting position and often times sitting itself is VERY uncomfortable.  So I stand most of the time these days- which is a good way to burn extra calories 🙂

Fitness wise I have really made strides the past month!! I am lifting HEAVY and I am being very consistent!
