Fit Skill Set

I am just sitting here watching the birds, the rain and the grass litterally growing in front of my eyes! Everything is suddenly GREEN!  I may even need to mow my lawn this weekend??

CRAZY how quickly seasons change!

Seasons in my life change quickly also! It seems like I am always “adjusting” to the new routine, the new circumstance, a new set of goals or interests.  Life is anything but STATIC!

I take pride in knowing that through all the change I’ve encountered over the past  almost 10 years I’ve manage to keep in shape through it all!!  I’ve been consistently FIT and overall HEALTHY!

I truly hope an pray that YOU too will learn the SKILL set needed to continually stay fit and healthy as you progress through the seasons of your life!  Keeping a constant awareness that your health is not automatic, you must fight for it.  It’s a battle!  You can’t let your guard down or you’ll lose ground…you must be on the offensive!

Yesterday, turned out to be a nice day– I spent the morning organizing things for our Gathering in VEGAS!! I can’t wait to hang out and get to know the TEAM BuffMother ladies who are going!! Our goal will be to simply have fun!!

Then yesterday afternoon, I went out on a “Date” with my DD Gracie!  She had a tough orthodontist appt first and then I had a work errand to run, but after that it was all fun!!

We ate at Olive Garden then hit the mall, Target and then Krispy Kreme!  It was a good bonding time in celebration of her STRAIGHT A report card!!

Gracie got some earrings, a bow, 2 lace headbands, 2 pairs of shorts, a shirt and a bikini. I got a hat, some earrings, a purse and 2 ear cuffs.

When I got home I did a mini workout~

Lunges paired with shoulder exercise

5 sets of 20 lunges total; 3 sets lateral raises, 3 sets shoulder press and 1 sets front raises between sets

Please chime in on today’s contest post ~

I’m off to get some orders shipped, go get groceries and get in my workout~ I’m hitting the gym for a mish, mosh of back and legs–HEAVY SMITH LUNGES BABY!! Then after school it’s off to the races again– Guitar lessons and Awana.
Let’s have STELLAR DAY ladies!!
Love,
Michelle

good START

HI YA!!

Happy Thursday to you~ today’s another busy day on tap for me!  I’ve got what feels like a million things to complete prior to Spring BREAK starting tomorrow.  There’s no way I’ll be able to get everything done, but I still plan to have a very productive day!  It’s starting off good– I’ve already written our featured contest post:

 

Yesterday morning Travis and I started a NEW routine– to workout together each M-W-F morning.  He’s a morning workout person, so I am trying to help him regain some consistency with his workouts.  It’s a sacrifice, for me…BUT WORTH IT!!

It’s also cool to have someone there to take my workoutproof pics

 

My chest workout:

Bench: 45 warm up x15 reps, 95x15x3sets (kept it light since this was my first day benching since my neck went out last week) Push ups- with perfect push up 4 sets: 15, 15, 10, 10 BOOTY Push ups- this I stick my butt up on–kinda like BAD FORM push ups, lol! 3 sets of 5-10 reps Incline Flys: 30’sx10x3sets Sit ups~ 3 sets Triceps dips finished with a reverse plank VACUUMS!! I also did some other ab stuff mixed in…it was a good “Safe” workout!

 

Once it was done I was off to the races– got a bunch of work done, took a shower, and chatted in the RR. It was great to have  and then drove into town for my MIL’s b-day lunch!

Here’s a pic of my outfit for that

 

We had a good lunch, I stuck to my “plan” to eat a bit of bread, have coffee to drink and eat a salmon salad. The remainder of the my eating for the day didn’t EXACTLY go to plan, I ended up having 2 more carbs than I hoped for- I had pringles! and CAKE My totals for the day were 5P (eggs, salmon, chicken, beef jerky); 5C (bread, pringles, cake, rice); 3F(eggs/bacon, butter, oil, dressing, half-n-half); 3 G (salad, stir fry veggies); 1treat (cake– the amount of cake I had feel into more than 1 serving)

 

a 5-4-3-2-1 BOOSTING day– not a bad day at all, just not what I was “shooting for” on diet Did you read yesterday’s post about diet?:

S2S~ Day 10: Diet hard!!

I’ve gotta roll…lot’s to do today, !!
I love it!! LOVE YA,
Michelle
