VEGAS!! and Join Every Day in MAY

Today is the 3 year anniversary of our VEGAS trip…I love the memories I have from that fun time!!  I’d love to get my body back to how it felt then!! I will do it!! I’ve decided to do an EVERY DAY IN MAY challenge again this year, please join me!  The goal is to workout every day in May for at least 11 mins.

Today has been a much better day than yesterday, yay!! I did end up sleeping in this morning and it made such a difference~ I seriously need more sleep than the average human!

It’s HUMP DAY and Guitar lesson day here for us…I’ll be heading to pick up my 3 sweet little ladies from school so we can get to my Gracie’s lesson.  She’s been slacking on her guitar lately, but now that track is over, I am hoping she’ll get a bit more serious about it!

I got up this morning finally at about 10:30 and decided to hit the trail for a run instead of sitting on the boring bike.  I ran intervals 6 total then a walk jog back up the hill– total time was 22 mins.  I also did a few drills after the run.  Came back home and ate.

Do you like my long socks? I have to wear them so the weeds don’t get me so much, lol!

My weight was up a lot yesterday, I think I was 140 actually, so today it felt nice to see the scale at 137 again.  Ovulation Hormone spike is almost over and i expect to see a nice low weight come Friday!!

Time for me to go clean some more…I opted to stay home from the gym today to do that instead. Seriously, I must be going loony tunes!!

Off to the races

My eats day 1 went well too…

up at 6am

apple cider vinegar and water
Detox tea
3 poached eggs
Kipper Snacks and carrot
~Planted trees for 1.5 hours~ got about 50 in the ground
Burger (small) and Cucumber
Chips- while running errands with son
Took starting stats, pics–ended up cramping like crazy! Drank salt water and took some Ionic Magnesium
~Workout- Lift upper and intervals
Steak more cucumbers, glass of wine 6oz
Spinach Salad with Pecans, Turkey, Red onion and Olive Garden Italian DressingMore tea

Overall, My eating was good– didn’t plan on the chips or wine, but I kept both to a small portion and really have no desire to keep up with that.  I am on my 2nd week of no coffee and no dairy.  I did have a slight cheat on the dairy with some cheese on Sunday, but honestly I’m not missing it much at all!! My tummy is so much happier without both!

Very happy with how my body is starting to feel stronger and leaner than last month for sure!!  Also my tummy is so much better!!….but I HATE the state of my legs right now. NEVER have I carried fat/water retention in my legs like this and NEVER have I had such bad cellulite. I really am worried something is amiss with my kidneys or thyroid…hoping to find out my test results from the Dr. today!

My workout was weird, as I mentioned in my food log, I was dealing with cramps and being HUNGRY, but I can’t run with food in my tummy so I powered through.

Circuit 1:
Push up on handles 12reps x3sets
Bicep curls 50#x12x3sets
Hyper-extensions 15 reps x2sets

Circuit 2:
Bench 95×10, 105×8, 105×8
Bicep Curl Machine 55×10, 65×10
Hip Ups and Knee ups- one set each

Run intervals- 8 mphx1min 3x’s, 8mph x 2 mins 3x’s 20mins on treddy total for 2.2 mi FELT the tree planting in my rt. hip and left knee~ I was EXHAUSTED!

Went to bed pretty early last night and am SORE from all I did yesterday– swinging a pick axe and planting 50 trees is not easy!

I’ll post my starting pics and stats in a different post….

Hope our DAY 2 is great too!!

Love ya,
Michelle
