Branded?? ~S6day14

Have you branded yourself?

Today our 14th day of contest and it’s another day off.

For my day off I love handing with family and hitting the trails. We just “found” a network of trails in our city last week and today is in the 60′s and sunny~ so we are going to venture out with the kids. It should be a fun time!!

I was reading part of a book by the preacher T.D. Jakes this morning. It was the first time I’ve ever read anything of his. He seems to be a good writer…He wrote about that we should all “BRAND” ourselves. Similar to how Oprah has branded herself. When we hear the name Oprah~ we know what kind of quality she stands for and we expect that something with her name on it should be a certain way. Each of us should be able to name at least 3 things that are the qualities of our personal BRAND. For instance this would be and example mine:

“Hi, I am Michelle Berger….my mission is to help women by giving them hope to persue their dream body, life and legacy! My method is to lead by example in my own life, showing love to others and giving encouragement to women who God brings into my life.”

Have you ever thought about what your brand is? or what you want your brand to BE?

Today is also my day off of workouts~ and BOY am I in need of it!! I am sore! Not as tired as I am many Thursdays, but I am glad we are taking the day off. My lower back is still being a bugger~ I think I strained something in there on Monday…so tomorrow’s leg workout will have to be adjusted. AND I have limited my cardio/intervals because of it. So…my week hasn’t gone exactly as planned, but it’s still been very productive!

Yesterday we lifted CHEST~
here’s how that went:
6 min r-bike

Bench
45×20
one set push ups (15reps)
95×10
115×8
135×6 (help with 2)
145×4 (help with 2)
155×4 (help with 4)
135×5 (help with 3)

Dips
9,7,5

Cable flys (one arm at a time)
30x12x2
40×10

Bench dips
3 sets to fail

knee ups
2 sets of 15

I cooked a chicken for dinner~ it was good and will have some of that meat for eats today!

Well, I gotta go get ready to HIKE!!

POA~ week #6 consistency challenge

I believe in the power of REST!  In looking back at this week, I had a GREAT one.  I took a couple extra days “off” of working out, but made my workout days count and It was great despite it is usually one of my roughest hormonal times of the month!!!  I am pumped about it~ I followed my own advice and RESTED more than I usually let myself REST and it keep myself HAPPY, unstressed, productive, loving, patient and healthy!  In addition to the rest I was a good girl about taking my “boosting” supplements and they always help with keeping my hormones balanced.  Soooo, I feel great! and ready to hit my LEG workout today HARD and have another super week of Boosting!!
