Try on your bikini DAILY!! SSS week 06

This week’s mini challenge…

SSS contest~~ WEEK #6 Mini-Challenge “try on your bikini DAILY”~

The reasoning behind this challenge is to get you looking at yourself and motivated to take action towards making your bikini look even better on you!!

I know for me trying on bikinis can be fun or painful! Know that you can create a better body…taking action daily and doing the little things will add up!!! BELIEVE you can wear your bikini with confidence and you will soon be strut your stuff on the beach !!!! Know that you can create a better body…taking action daily and doing the little things will add up!!!

BELIEVE you can be confident in your bikini by next summer!!!!

A fun option on this challenge is to take a daily picture of you in your bikini…I’ve done this before and it was very fun!

Get after it and be relentless, we are closing in on the finishing weeks of the SSS contest and I plan on kicking it in!!
Love Ya!!

Sit up Test: “Fab Abs” Day #4

A couple years ago we ran a “Just do it!” contest that contained a sit up test

 

Today’s Day #4 “Fab Abs” challenge is to do THIS SIT UP TEST~

 

TEST notes:

  1. The test is to do as many sit ups as you can in 60 seconds- similar to what you did as a kid in Presidential Fitness Tests
  2. If you don’t feel “sit ups” are for you, you can choose to test using and alternate exercise. Ideas: crunches,  hands on hammies sit ups, knee ups–
  3. As many as you can in 60 seconds– aim to improve over the next couple weeks.  Plan to retest on Fab Abs Day #27
  4. The goal is to measure is for core strength. A 6 pack is not the only goal– we need to have strong lower backs, hips, t-abs and good posture

 

Have fun and be sure to report in once you are done!!

Good start to week 2!

HI YA!!

Today’s been another busy day!  I’ve managed to fit in my workouts each day this week. Monday Bike in am then Chest/Tris/Run in pm, Tues Bike in am then Legs in pm, Wed Bike in am then Back/Sh/Bi/Run in pm. I’ve also been killing my abs and doing vacuums~ VERY SORE STILL! Now it’s time to REPEAT those 3 days to finish out a killer week of workouts.

Today, I had 3 meetings in town, got the dog groomed and also hit Sam’s Club for some food shopping. On the way home a massive storm hit, the sirens were even going off and the kids got held at school extra long because of it! It was a SCARY drive home!

I made it and have what feels like a million things to complete prior by tomorrow.  There’s no way I’ll be able to get everything done, but I still plan on trying and all the while striving to keep my SEXY FOCUS!

Today’s post is all about keeping SEX a priority in your life!

Thanks to all of you who joined in our chat! It was an AWESOME time!! I really love how we can connect like that. Please join us next week for our next one!
Time to get rollin’ on my workouts and work for today.
I love ya my sexy friends!!

Pushing Through

I feel as though the past few days has been me having to PUSH through.  I blame it on a bit of a flu/tummy bug…Hoping tomorrow things will be more “NORMAL” lol!

Friday, just got in a 15min bike ride.

Thursday was a short workout too.  Just 25 mins on the bike and some abs.

I’m going to get on my workout duds now and hit the workout room.

My plan is to try to do legs and adding in the “MAC” moves between sets.

Wish me luck!

“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!

Home!

I am home!! YAY!! I’m so happy to be HOME!!

This is an odd homecoming for me– my “re-entry” has been SPECTACULAR!! I’m rocking it today (except I forgot about our chat)!  Typically it takes me a full week to get back in the groove after time away!

So…Summer is here and I’ve implemented my new chore system.  The kids can make some serious CASH each day if they want!  Every chore pays a dollar. They must do at least 1 a day, If they do not they owe me a dollar.  AND each day has a deadline. Today’s is 5pm, but I for-see most days the deadline being noon.

The bad thing about this summer is my son has football at 6am a few mornings a week almost the entire summer?? That means I have to get up earlier than when school was in session to get him there.  SMH (shake my head)

Our trip to MN was fun! We surpirsed my BIL for his 40th B-day and I also got to visit with my new little nephew, Johnny! He’s a doll!!

I haven’t lifted since last Wednesday– so LEGS are on tap- I have ran 3 times this past week.  Including last night on my trail–

I have 9 days until my birthday~ MY plan is to hit it hard!! My POA is simple yet intense:

 

W- Lift Legs

Th- Track workout F- Lift upper body Sa- Track workout Su- Lift legs

M- Track workout T- Lift upper body

W-Track workout

Th- Lift Legs F- BIRTHDAY WEEKEND BEGINS!!
Hope JUNE is going well for you too~

LET’s make it GREAT!

Don’t forget your hiney!

I’ll post my full blog later, but I wanted to share today’s contest link with you~
The HAM workout correlates with the workout program I put in the forum on day #7.  Please download that if you have not yet.
We are nearing the halfway point in this 3 week contest– do you feel you’ve made any progress on your HINEY?!
Day 8 was a Summary of our previous week, and info about the 2 week plan.

As we go through the next 2 weeks I’ll post the day’s suggested workout. I’ll also be posting “HOW TO DO” the sandwich butt routines.

Today’s workout:

Lift Lower
Body
  1. Squats- 4×10
  2. Dead Lifts- 4×10
  3. Lunges -4×10
And
ABS
between all
sets!
Tips:
  • Challenge yourself to lift heavy enough to where by each 8-10 rep you feel like you may not be able to complete the move.
  • Take time between sets to recover- it is NOT a race!
  • Be sure to do each move very deliberately focused on your BUTT!
  • For single leg moves (lunges) be sure to alternate starting legs and in Dead lifts alternate hand position if you are using an over-under grip.
keep working it!!
