Where’s my EASY button??

I’ve had an off week of blogging. I think I wore myself out from doing the daily vlogs for the first half of my 70days to sexy…I have just STOPPED completely this week, HA! For the fall I Plan to post a vlog once in a while, but strive to do 1 really good video weekly.  Our FAB ABS is coming up with perfect timing! I need to regain some mojo!  REMEMBER…Be sure to sign up, share this link and encourage your friends to join us in www.TEAMBuffMother.com for our FREE ABS August challenge! http://buffmother.com/current-challenge/
Despite my lack of blogging, I have been online…I’ve had a couple interesting conversations on my Facebook profile recently.
Please be sure to click “Follow” so you don’t miss out on the fun!!
Yesterday Lynn inspired me to post about kids’ sports being too serious and then today a body shaming article made me post about how sad I am about women bashing other women!  Both conversations were very interesting!
Do you agree or disagree?? Kid’s sports (under 12) are too competitive and specialized, way too young! I feel that parents are often to blame for it, they have no goals of their own, so they transfer to the kids!
Holy cow…this is infuriating. Why wouldn’t women want to see an inspirational mother?
I’ve also been pushing our NEW Gym Angel give away and have a “big one” in the works for mid Aug!! Keep your eyes peeled for it!!
Do you need some more protein powder?? or how about a GREAT multi vitamin…Enter this give away now!!

Since Friday, I’ve done just 1 real workout– a hills run on Tuesday.  I can’t go into details, but I will share that this summer has been very rough.  Since May, I’ve been trying hard and getting a little momentum here and there– but then losing it quickly. By saying “trying hard” I don’t mean in just my fitness and diet. I mean in LIFE. My business, my relationships, my faith, etc…everything has been HARD!  Push, push, push with NOTHING being easy or automatic. Where on earth did I put my EASY BUTTON!??

 

STRESS has been high in my soul, on my spirit and has made me wonder at times if I am on the verge of being depressed? I’ve been having neck pain, crazy fatigue and on Tuesday evening developed a UTI!   It’s amazing how much my mental stress impacts my physical health! 

 

Thank God, in the last 2 days, a few BIG prayers have been answered and the stress is so MUCH LOWER.  I feel I am on the upswing.  I am determined to push into the upcoming weeks with HOPE and Positivity. It’s time to leave this stress in the dust and have an AWESOME ABS AUGUST!

Thanks for all your love and support. Please invite everyone you know to join in on our ABS AUGUST, I know they’ll thank you!!

Love,

Michelle

Takin’ it easy…this week’s POA

HELLO!!
I am takin’ it easy this weekend…
Yesterday I started feeling a bit ill, I think I am getting “grazed” by the flu Travis had. So I just did a little mini workout yesterday a mish-mosh of stuff…
ran around the block
did a few mins on the bike
a few mins on the stairmaster
did some push ups

AND….I did 4 pushups with CLAPS between for the first time EVER!
Last night we watched the UFC, it was really good except ARLOFSKI his fight was BORING!!

Now today, I am taking totally OFF of workouts and getting SET to hit it hard this week.

POA~
this week is the first of bufffing…my goal is to shed a pound of “real weight” and continue to build up my fitness
M- Chest, Tris and intervals
T-Legs
W-Back, Bi, Sh and intervals
Th- Chest, Tris and intervals
F-Legs
S-Back, Bi, Sh and intervals
Sunday OFF

Diet will be KEY for me these next couple weeks– LOTS of GREENS and protein

I am really enjoying the warmer weather!! It is fun to break out the shorts and tanks, AND it is a BIG motivator to hit the buffing hard!
Hope you have a good relaxing day too!!
