Dating -marriage tip

DATING is another FIT marriage tip for you.  You need to still date your spouse like
they’re your boyfriend or girlfriend!!
You must take the time away from life and just spend time with your spouse. AND it’s got to be just you and your spouse!!  a lot of couples get on in the habit of constantly going out
with other couples on their dates…That is not a DATE!  Going out with other couples is  all good and dandy every now and then but you still need the majority of your dates to be just be you and your spouse.
Dating means taking to connect intimately with your spouse physically, mentally and spiritually. Your not running errands, talking about the kids or your work…instead you should be talking about your life goals, your wishes, dreams and expectations for your future. Special things like that!
Make the time to make sure you go on dates don’t let life get too busy!
Even if you can’t “go out” you CAN do dates at home. Take a night or afternoon where you ON PURPOSE and ANNOUNCE (to the kids) “We are on a DATE” at home.  You must take the time to connect!
Cheers to you having a good marriage and I love you!

Ab wheel or Repeat: “Fab Abs” Day #7

Hi!! It’s our 7th day…Congrats for making it 1 week in our Fab Abs Challenge. I would say that the first week is the hardest. Your body has been in shock and your ABS most definitely have been sore because of the extra effort.

 

I expect that this next week will be very encouraging to you~

  • you won’t get as sore
  • you will see improvement in your coordination
  • you will see your core strength improve
  • you may even notice some new definition in your waist

Today’s Challenge is to either do this fun little ab/shoulder workout or REPEAT on of your favorite challenges from the previous days.

Summary of Fab Abs contest posts:

Info and Instructions: “Fab Abs” Day 0

30 Ab exercises: “Fab Abs” Day 1

After Baby ABS! “Fab Abs” Day 2

6 pack of COKE: “Fab Abs” Day 3

Ab wheel or Repeat: “Fab Abs” Day 7
Let’s get ready to SEE some fun SECOND WEEK results!!

-Michelle

p.s. an AB wheel is a super fun inexpensive piece of equipment but if you don’t have one you can do a similar exercise as a substitution (ball roll ups,  full sit ups, hanging knee ups, etc…)

Sit up Test: “Fab Abs” Day #4

A couple years ago we ran a “Just do it!” contest that contained a sit up test

 

Today’s Day #4 “Fab Abs” challenge is to do THIS SIT UP TEST~

 

TEST notes:

  1. The test is to do as many sit ups as you can in 60 seconds- similar to what you did as a kid in Presidential Fitness Tests
  2. If you don’t feel “sit ups” are for you, you can choose to test using and alternate exercise. Ideas: crunches,  hands on hammies sit ups, knee ups–
  3. As many as you can in 60 seconds– aim to improve over the next couple weeks.  Plan to retest on Fab Abs Day #27
  4. The goal is to measure is for core strength. A 6 pack is not the only goal– we need to have strong lower backs, hips, t-abs and good posture

 

Have fun and be sure to report in once you are done!!

I broke into the 120’s!

HOLY COW, I finally, finally saw 129.8 on the scale today!! It’s been since August that I’ve been trying to get a reading in the 120’s!!  YAY!!

I’ve got 2 things new that I’m doing to THANK for the weight drop:
1- Thyrocare supplement– started taking this again this week

2- PH9 Generator water- it’s a cool invention check out the info http://www.rezpons.com/ph9-generator

Fun to see some FLUFF coming off!!

I ran last night, harder than a couple days ago– went up to 9mph for my intervals and decided to be done after I hit the 2 mile mark at 15:40 due to some DIZZINESS– must not be getting enough OXYGEN just yet

 

Today, I’m not sure how I’ll get a workout done. I’ve got a meeting at 2 for my Diabetes charity event www.BuffMother.com/kissapig

Then we have dinner at my SIL’s at 6…hmmmmm….. May have to get creative.

 

Time for me to roll!

Oh wow, how did it get to be Friday?  I literally was in bed almost all day Sun, Mon, Tue, Wed and half of Thurs….CRAZY! I have not been knocked on my booty so hard in a long, long time! Glad that’s over, HA!!
3 of our 6 in the family got it bad- Gracie first, then Tia and I.  Hoping no one else has to lose a week of their life to this flu.

 

Anyhow enough about that, it seem like sickness is the only thing I’ve blogged about this week. Truth be told, I’ve had a lot going on in my BRAIN during the time off. I’ve been thinking about a lot!!

 

I had a fun question asked of me a couple week ago “What are 3 things on your bucket list?”  It’s an interesting question because I didn’t know off the top of my head…I had to think about it for a while.

Here are the 3 I came up with:

  1. To learn to sing
  2. To own a horse (and learn to ride it)
  3. To visit Germany During Oktoberfest

 

What 3 things are on your bucket list?

 

Like I said, I’ve been thinking about a lot of things Death, life, living, money, time, energy, work, being lazy, goals, vision, people, love, etc…

So much thinking has made me glad to get back to workouts, they clear my head.

Today’s plan, bike and do chest/triceps.

Gonna go for now, be sure to enjoy your FRIENDLY FRIDAY!!

Love,
Michelle

 

 

p.s. I’m making a list can you please share some healthy “reward” ideas!!

Gym Angel Pure Angel Product Guide

  • Encourages daily regularity*
  • Helps maintain a healthy weight*
  • Fast results*

Some women wrongly proclaim themselves “FAT”. For many, that puffy belly may not be fat at all, but instead accumulated feces in the digestive tract. Unless you have a high fiber diet, chances are you have lots of thick buildup in your gastrointestinal tract. It’s sometimes difficult to keep your system functioning smoothly with many of the highly processed foods that we consume on a daily basis. Processed foods can be very rough for your body to handle and excrete properly. Pure Angel™ can help!

Pure Angel™ discretely and gently helps your body’s digestive tract remain in a healthy equilibrium where it can flush out foods that are hard on the body while simultaneously being overly discrete.* With Pure Angel™ you won’t have one of those embarrassing moments where you find yourself needing to run to the women’s room stat!

 

I’ve been using this product for over a month, at first I was skeptical but after the first couple half doses of 1 pill I increased to the full dose of 2 at night before bed. I felt it helped my digestion and decreased my morning bathroom issues.  I will continue to take this product.
