A GREAT weekend!!

It was a GREAT weekend!! Started off with a fun date Saturday night. I surprised Travis by taking him to a new restaurant. One neither of us had been to before…a little hidden gem in Sulphide Springs.The Cellar Creekside.  It’s about 15mins from our house and I took Travis on the backroads there…he had no clue where we were!! FUN!




Then yesterday, I got pampered. Slept in, had break feast in bed (thanks TIA!) and got in a leg workout….

After the workout we headed out to eat and shopped a bit. We had a GREAT family outing!

Filthy Friday

My house was/is filthy…so I’ve been cleaning all day.  Got more to do before I have to go pick up my DD and her friend for a sleep over.  But I will get in my workout after I get them.
Been hanging out with the DH a lot this week…he’s just put up my new workstation. It’s so beautiful. I’ll upload a pic.
TGIF ladies!! -Michelle p.s. ya’ll are doing great on the EVERY DAY in MAY!! it’s so fun to hear how many of you are still 100%!! YAY!!

Whohooo~ what a long eventful week for us here in the Rally Room and for me too!!

I love being busy, but MAN…sometimes it’s just nice to relax. Can’t wait to do that with my family this weekend!!

I’ll also be sending out a new email later this afternoon to all SSS contestants, so watch for that.  Then SUNDAY another with next week’s challenge and content.  I am in awe of all the success you have been reporting already!! GREAT JOB LADIES!! I am VERY, VERY INSPIRED!!

On a personal fitness front I had my best run of the year yesterday– not best as a performance, but as an accomplishment and BURNING LUNG free!!  I am healthy again, yay!!

Today, I will be doing an upper body PUSH/PULL workout (chest=push; tricep=push; shoulders= pull and push depending on exercise; back=pull; biceps=pull) and some intervals– probably biking mixed with boxing.

I also need to hit the store for groceries.

Gotta go get errands done,

TGIF!!  Keep pushing hard, we’ve got still 3 days left of week #2~ make it count!!!

Well, I am BEAT today– had to sleep in extra!! I say (beat) because in my movie script it says (beat) in parenthesis each time you are to PAUSE in your lines.

Yesterday I got in 2 workouts.  One prior to leaving the house CHEST/Triceps but had no time for intervals.  I figured that’d be okay since I planned to workout with my client at 2.  We did a GREAT body-weight workout that I plan to put up as a video soon. It went like this:

March in place for 3 minute warm up

Paired circuit #1:

Body Weight squats x 20 slow and controlled and deep Push ups x10 reps (you and modify these to your knees or wall if needed) Repeat 3x’s

Paired circuit #2: Stationary Lunges x10 on each leg (you can use back of chair for balance)

Chair Tricep Dips x 10

Repeat 3x’s

Paired circuit #3:

Seated arm running x1minute Standing calf raises x10 one leg at at time Repeat 3x’s

Paired circuit #4:

Standing High Knees- leaning against wall bring knee up to chest x30 reps alternating legs Knee ups on ottoman or chair x15 reps Repeat 3x’s Paired circuit #5:

Laying leg side leg lifts 10-15 reps slow and controlled Adductor V’s x 10-15 reps slow and controlled

Repeat 3x’s

Add in some stretching between circuits and sets

Then I had more errands and class. I was also supposed to have an acting lesson which I had to wait 1.5 hours for…so during that time I sat in the car and read my movie lines.

The best part about yesterday is that while I was gone, DH got some food at the store and even cooked me and kids a burger! Him cooking is an epic event, lol!

Today is all about getting done some stuff I didn’t get to yesterday PLUS CLEANING!  AND an interval Run on the Treadmill for my workout.  I think I’ll wait until tomorrow to tackle the “Contest” items I need to do

Have a GREAT HUMP Day!!

28 days of Christmas: Day 10

XMAS Day 10: “rest day”…

If you’ve gotten in your workouts this week, you deserve a rest day.  Resting and letting your muscles recover is key to rebuilding your body, metabolism and mind!

On my days “off”, I like to do RESEARCH for my next workout or learn some new exercises.  Here’s a long list of videos I’ve put online over the years.  If you enjoy any of them please comment (it really helps them gain traffic).

Have a great day OFF!!

Yesterday was great…I spent the whole day with my Buddy TRAVIS!! I got dolled up– Here’s a couple pics:

Travis started the fire with his “Flame Thrower”

I didn’t get my run in but, “C’est la vie!!”…I was happy to skip it to spend time with my love!
