“Get Buff”- Day 15

“Get Buff”- Day 15

 

CONGRATS!! today is our HALFWAY POINT!!  And guess what- MY plan is to take a set of fresh STAT and pictures to see what I’ve been able to change already!!  If you’ve been working hard~ I’d suggest you do the same!! It’s a great way to keep focused!!

Workout:

 

Day #15
Rest day
Or
long
steady
cardio
30-60
min.

If you missed any of the cardio or sprinting workouts from past days today would be a perfect day make up that workout~!! If you ever miss a day of workouts- SHIFTING your workouts a day forward is better than SKIPPING them entirely.

30 days isn’t a long time, but BURN OUT can happen fast- It’s very key to PACE yourself and incorporate REST DAYS into your workout program for your physical and mental success!

Today’s Diet focus:

Try new food or recipe- Variety is key to diet success!

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!!

Love,

What Energizes You??~ Shine in 49: Day 22

I think it’s very neat how each and everyone one of us are different~ what gets one person EXCITED can be extremely BORING to someone else.  That’s why I am wondering WHAT ENERGIZES YOU?  Will you share your answer with me by commenting here?

Some of the things that energize me are:

  1. Encouraging others- When I encourage others it keeps me energized to stay accountable myself and to set a good example~ otherwise I’d feel like a hypocrite
  2. Competition- give me a way to compete with someone and I will get intense!
  3. Performing- I like the pressure of needing to “perform”; I rise to the occasion and “turn it ON”
  4. Teaching others- I love sharing what I know with others~ I pride myself on being able to explain complicated things in a way that is not so complicated.
  5. SPORTS! I love playing and watching soooo many sports~ I used to think I should have been born a boy.
  6. RESULTS- getting results from something I worked towards energizes me to keep going!
  7. Seeing others succeed!! Success Stories are so inspirational and energizing
  8. Hormones- I am obsessed with hormones, lol!
  9. Supplementation- I love doing HUMAN exeriments on myself and learning about every type of nutrient known to man!
  10. Exercise and Sports Science~ I am a total nerd when it comes to this stuff!  I really love reading research articles, medical journals about anything to do with training and sports supplementation research, etc…I should really go back to school and get my masters or doctorate in it.

On the other hand, some things that DO NOT energize me are:

  • Handyman stuff
  • Tools
  • Crafts, Sewing, scrap-booking, etc…
  • Cooking, cleaning, housework
  • homework
  • reading for leisure (unless I have a reason to read something, you won’t find me reading)…I do like looking a pictures in magazines 🙂
  • decorating
  • shopping- unless it’s for shoes, I like shoes!
  • basic hygiene- I hate showering, shaving, blow drying my hair, putting on lotion, make up, etc…I do it, but I don’t like it!~LOL!

So what energizes you?
And how can you use those interests to energize others?

-Michelle
