Thank you SPORTS

Hi!! I’m in a total time warp this week…Holidays do that!!

I’m so excited on many fronts~ We are getting geared up for our next contest…Hope you got the email and signed up, DETAILS are HERE.  The sign up for the sock exchange ended yesterday: We had 68 ladies sign up to participate, It’s gonna be some crazy wild fun to see all of those sock pictures!!

I got in a workout today at the gym with my mma friend Lylna~ we worked our backs, shoulders and did squats– then to finish up she put me through some boxing drills~ it was fun!!

Tennis was canceled for this week…due to the holidays.

Today I want to say thank you to sports…Thank you SPORTS for teaching me tons of PHYSICAL Skills, but more so mental skills like : Determination, Hard work, Consistency, Team Work, Encouragement and the Ability to KEEP Pressing on knowing that PRACTICE makes PERFECT.

Well, time for some relaxation!!




Celebration Day!

All day I’ve been Celebrating being done with my first batch of TAXES!! Late yesterday I finally completed my 2008 taxes~Yippie!!
Yoga/pilates have been on my mind today…tons of people have told me to do them to help my back/hips/butt issues and I think I’ll try a class today; it should be a good change of pace for me since it’s been 3 years since the last time I took any class at the gym! I tend to stay away from them becuase I get too competitive and end up hurting myself, lol! What’s your favorite class to take at your gym? Mine isn’t at my dayt to day gym…it’s at a Fighting gym- TCB in Rogers, AR…the women’s MMA Class rocks!! My trainer; Lylna (pronounced: LENA), actually just won our local ToughMan tournament this past weekend. She’s a little pitbull!

Anyhow…I plan to go to workout AFTER my kiddos get home from school which is in about 30 mins. I’ve been busy writing training programs all day~ so I can’t wait to get away from this computer!

I’ll be back later to post what I ended up doing.



P.S. Last Call!! If you want to join our 2010 BuffMother! Contest TEAM, this you last chance. I am not taking any new competitors after 3-15~ We have a great team of women started already…we’d love for you to join us~ Don’t miss your chance to join us!!

DH and I are Buddies~

I am so thankful for my DH~ we are total buddies and had a blast “hanging” out together today! We’ve now been together for almost 15 years–actually it was about exactly 15 years ago when we met…he was recruiting for the HS weight room program (which he, a college JUNIOR, supervised in the summer). I guess he “sold” me because couple weeks later I joined up in the weight room and when I told him I was only 16…Travis about died!! I soon turned 17 and shortly after that we were “in love”. The next year he proposed and 2 months after that we were married! It has been an amazing 15 years together and I am so thankful GOD put us together and has KEPT us together!!!
