Am I a hermit?

I seriously am worried I’m turning into a HERMIT.  I don’t want to leave my house!  I know my hormones tend to make me feel this way monthly, but I am seriously feeling more and more like I don’t want to venture away from my “Sanctuary” of a ranch.  We moved out to the country about a year ago and I’m totally diggin it!  I’ve learned so much about myself this past year…I love doing so many things that I never knew existed prior to this past year.

I love driving a tractor I love planting fields I love brush hogging I love building big fires I love running hills on a dirt trail I love hunting varmits I love shooting guns (i got a hand gun and a shot gun!) I love making mulch (our anniversary present was a small mulcher) I love cutting down weeds and sumac!! it makes me feel powerful! I love working out at home! (I never thought that’d be the case) I enjoy the sunrise (Before this year, I barely ever got up to see one, lol)

…I could keep going but the point is that life is so amazing– a constant adventure and discovery!!

So far our 28days of Chistmas is a success!! tons of posting tons of fun #workoutproof pictures~ tons of great women who I’m so excited to get to know better!!

I got in my workout last evening at about 6pm… here’s my proof pic~ I’m sore today!!

Today I hope to get my workout done earlier.  Upper body and a run is on tap!!

Have a GREAT day #2!!




Yet another social website is gained my membership this past month…Pinterest! I’m still trying to learn how it works, but today I actually figured out how to pin a few items on a board. Anyhow if you are on there, let me know, I’d love to follow you! My profile is “BuffMother”

This week has been so busy, I worked so hard Mon, Tues and Wed to catch up on my work after the holiday vacation, that by today I was beat! I had to go back to bed for a couple hours after the kids left for school ….I guess that’s why I call them “Tired Thursdays”. I expect that tomorrow I’ll feel like a new woman; It’ll be cycle day 3 and It’s FRIDAY!! Buffing is almost here!! The BEST Week of my month is ahead~ watch out world~!

I finally managed to my booty out of bed just before 10…so that I could call a my Buff-Sister Sherry. She’s such a hoot and really GETS ME. Anyway, we spend some time talking about how excited we are for 2012 and how we love, love, love all our BuffMother-Sisters!! :bff: It’s true, we believe we will all be Best Friends FOREVER!

After my talk with her, I had another really interesting business phone call. I can’t share too much about it just yet, but It’s really good stuff for all parties involved. I can’t wait to get that project rolling!! I love all the energy for fitness that people have during the new year…I sure hope this momentum lasts through the winter!

Gunner and I got in our back workout and a short run too this afternoon. It’s good that we’ve gotten 3 workouts done so far this week and now he’s been “initiated” on each body part. Tomorrow when we workout we’ll do some things he’s already done~ which means less work for me!

On a personal front my head is spinning….I have so many things I “want to” get done and an ever increasing workload that shows no sign of slowing down. I may actually be at the point of being ready to hire myself an assistant! I’m talking about a real in flesh person in my office to help me get things DONE! It would be so nice to have a capable helper!

Sorry this is such a “journal” type post…I’m just too tired to be creative tonight. My plan is to snuggle up and watch some good tv tonight!

God Bless,


40 days to FIT!! Day 22~ Ready "To Monday"!

Is it just me or are Mondays a bit intimidating to you too?  BUT today I am ready “To Monday”!! cheerleaders

To Monday means so many things:

  • time to get a vision for the week ahead and build up excitement for what I can accomplish on the week ahead!!
  • feeling a little twinge of fear/intimidation about all the “work’ I hope to accomplish in the day ahead
  • time to a my clean up my diet and get in a killer first workout of the week
  • time to interact with clients, friends and business partners online, on the phone and in person
  • PEACE an quiet around the house…the kids are in school~ YAY!
  • time to “clean up”; make lists, organize and prioritize
  • time TO ATTACK IT!

My Monday is off to a great start~  I woke up on time despite an “alarm malfunction”; got the kids off to school; remembered to get the lunchroom a check for “lunch money”; I’ve taken my morning supplements (allergy pill + NOEXPLODE+ Garlic), and currently am eating breakfast (protein shake and banana +coffee); doing some laundry;  and I’ve even already checked my e-mail…. a GREAT START!! and I expect that trend to continue!  I am so ready “TO MONDAY” today!!

What about you are you ready “TO Monday”?

Fired up FRENZY!!

It’s a Fired up FRENZY in here!!!
I really value EXCITEMENT!  Isn’t it fun to be excited?  Getting excited doesn’t always happen by accident, we have to go after it and stir ourselves up for things.  Excitement is one of the coolest emotions…think about how FUN it is to talk to someone who is excited vs. someone who is “blah”…I really value EXCITEMENT!!
Today I am exited for so many things~ I am excited for the sunny weather, for the UFC TUF finals tonight, for the BIG things happening in my work life, for the new contest, for Jess who competes next week!!!  I am excited to “play” with my kids now that school is out!!! I am EXCITED!!!!!! …and I plan to make that excitement visible on my face and through my words and body language–because IT will rub off on others and make them EXCITED TOO!!!!
It is so fun to see all the great excitement to start the contest on Monday~ we are going to have a FUN 10 weeks!!!
I had a great Friday- filled will “to do’s”…but I made myself get out for a run last evening and it was perfect!!
Then this morning I went to the gym and did a leg workout~~ I feel GREAT!!!

I have a flight out tomorrow for a Monday Meeting, but I will be checking in and I will starting the contest with all of you!

My Biggest goal is to be VERY involved here in the Rally Room and with personally helping many of you succeed on your quest to be a SuperSTAR Success.  I’d like to provide as much information as possible through posting tips, exercises, videos, etc…my other  goals are mainly MAINTENANCE and overall fitness.  I am quite happy with my “look” at moment, but it can always get better :snicker:
AND for me my DIET is always a work in progress…so DIET will be key for me these next 10 weeks.

Let’s get after it ~
I know we can reach our dreams!!!

***Join the Rally Room!!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!
I am so thankful for all of you!

There are so many things I am thankful for including the ability to run:
today I did just that…
7 min warm up on my r-bike
25min run with 8 hard min intervals
5 min cool down
abs, cats, supermans and stretching

Now I am off to the shower to beautify myself for my kitchen duty.

Have a wonderful day and enjoy all that God has given you to be thankful for 🙂

God Bless, Michelle
