28 days of Christmas: Day 12

XMAS Day 12: I believe in the power of your hormones! I am actually obsessed with HORMONES, lol! HORMONES control EVERYTHING!! I track mine daily, I analyze others daily, I research them constantly and I believe hormones can make you fat and have the power to make you thin. This belief is what has led me to build the body that won 5 figure titles the year after having my 3 and 4 children after a c-section and what has keep me buff ever since! This belief is how my client gain GREAT results so very quickly, and this belief is what the HORMONAL TIMING program is all about.

Many of you are long time followers of BuffMother.com and know some about what I am talking about, but for those of you who do not, I encourage you to start by simply tracking your hormonal cycle. Day 1 is the first day of your period. Things you should note daily include your mood, appetite, energy level, motivation level, focus, stress level, strength, soreness, water retention (weight), pain, libido, etc… Even tracking for as little as one month WILL open your eyes to the affects your hormones have on EVERY aspect of your life.
As you track for 2 to 3 months patterns will emerge…you will see when you are just “off” or when you are “ON”, when you feel confident and days when you just want to hide in a cave, you will notice what days are GREAT for sex and what days you typically say NO WAY! KNOWING all of these things about yourself will open up a whole new understanding of how to plan your life, allow you to set realistic expectations for yourself on a day by day basis. WE as women are NOT the same on monthly cycle day 5 and cycle day 25! You must realize that!! And account for it in your life, your fitness, your diet and your supplementation.

So I implore you to start to chart NOW!!
And ladies that don’t have monthly periods~ if you have ovaries you still have a cycle~ chart your symptoms and you will “see” when your hormones are being nice and when they are being naughty 👿

On to today~ Woohoo only 17 days left of our contest!!
And I am totally impressed with so many of YOUR Workouts!!  YOU ROCK!!!

HOME 🙂

Here is the plan for this week workout wise
sun- did 45 min cardio/intervals tiny leg workout
mon- upper body – at least 40 min of cardio/intervals
Tues-Legs (last on before contest)…lots of lunges and leg extensions- cardio- run
Wed- upper body lift- intervals
Thursday just cardio- run

So the plan is much more cardio than you have ever seen me do :)…I hope to get in at least 45 min/day and on good days up to 90 min? We’ll see how my energy level stays and how my body responds to the addition and my diet.

Diet is very very low carb and getting cleaner by the day.
I am also adding in some green tea to increase vascularity and water loss…I am currently holding water :), but not for long, the idea is to peak at the perfect time SAT at SHOWTIME!!

I am excited and getting mentally ready.
