40 days to FIT!! Day 23 & 24 WEB work!

Sorry I missed out on being my normal “interactive” self online yesterday; I’ve been working hard on my Website’s Store…I am rather proud of how much of a TECHNICAL Genius I am becoming, lol!!

I also had to run several big errands yesterday, which meant my computer time was cut short  and I missed my workout~ SHEESH!! how did I let that happen??  My only explanation is that “ITs JUST my HORMONES!!”.  I felt the effects of cycle day 24 yesterday for sure!  NOT anything too Bad (like being crabby, stressed or depressed) but I did have a total lack of focus…everything I tried to do took 10 times longer than it should have.

This is a short week for the kids at school too, so My “work week” has been cut by 1 day…which means I need to get a lot more stuff done today!  I’ve already got my workout done~ YAY!!  I did it right after getting the kids off to school:

LEGS~

warm up r-bike 7 mins

Squats
warm up- bar- stretch- bar some more…I was really stiff!!
95×10
95×10
115×10
135x10x2~ this is the highest I’ve gotten to recently~ still being VERY Careful with my back

DEADS
95x15x4sets various stance and forms

walking lunges
45#bar on back x15x2sets

Smith Butt Squats
50x10x3

Smith lunges on step
50×10
one set of hanging sit ups here.
70×10…felt a bit of a back strain here so I opted to be safe than sorry (not sure if it was from the lunges or the hanging sit ups??)

Leg extensions
110×10
50x10x2 sets- one leg at a time
70x6x2sets

Sissy Squats
15repsx2 sets really squeezing glutes

That was all…I took NO-EXPLODE first thing this morn despite knowing I shouldn’t~ I can’t take it as a pre-workout, I get tummy issues and cramps from it.  I can however take it after workouts as long as I’ve already eaten something…I’ve decided that I’m not going to buy it again.  It’s the only creatine product I’ve ever used that’s created this kind of tummy issue for me. There plenty other creatines that work better for me.

BTW- I had a SUPER powerhouse upper body workout on MONDAY evening!
HORMONES+CREATINE = PERSONAL BESTS!!

Gotta go shower, eat and work!

The Attack Begins (Again!)

Hey ya!! I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend…I DID! the alarm going off at 6:15 this morning was a rude awakening! We didn’t have to get up early all last week due to the storm/school closed situation, so this Monday morn was bit tougher than the norm.

My DD Layla’s class performed this morning at their “rise and shine”…so we had to get to school early and Travis and I stayed to watch. She is a performer for sure! It was really very cute! I can’t believe her and her twin Tia’s birthday is next Monday. My babies are going to be 6! that’s crazy, but GREAT!! I love the age of my kids now~ I am so happy to be out of the baby stages! I’ll have to start planning for their B-day today.

The ATTACK begins (again) for me this week~ Here is my PLAN! (POA)

M: starting my second week of BOOSTING-chest, tri, abs, intervals
T: Run– outside if possible, Date with Gracie and 2 cousins and Grandma- we are going to see hotel for Dogs
W:Legs
Th:Back, bi, sh, abs, run
F:Chest, tri, intervals
Sa: maybe legs and Run
Su:off

I am in heaven to have the kids back in school today….I was overwhelmed last week, lol. But guess what?? they go to year round school and are OUT again for 10 straight days after this week…So I am going to have to get A LOT done this week.

Get after your goals this week!! It is time to ATTACK!!!!
