Photoshoot Set

Did I tell you??? I have a photo-shoot set for Thursday the 29th= 9 days away and I am rusty, lol! It’s been a while since I’ve done a shoot and PREPARATION is needed.  It’s a lot like getting ready for a figure contest, one should practice posing and give a bit of extra attention to the details.  My main objective during the shoot is to get some updated photos for my portfolio and to knock the rust off so that I can be ready when duty calls

That said my POA for the remainder of the week is as follows:

T- bike 20 mins fasted; lift lower body +abs/booty focus

W- run hills; back, shoulders, biceps + abs

Th- bike 20 mins fasted; lift chest/triceps/abs and boxing intervals

F- run road intervals + sprints

Sa- LEGS

Sun- fasted treadmill run; back/shoulders/biceps

Monday- chest/triceps/abs; Happy Memorial Day!!

I’m making a BIG push to get to 4000 YouTube subscribers…Please help me by subscribing to my channel http://www.youtube.com/buffmother Thanks Ya’ll rock!! Also, if you have any requests for certain videos please let me know

I’m off to get on my bike!!

Have a stellar day 20 of every day in MAY!!

Willed it ~ Wednesday

It was so stupid….All throughout my workout today I kept feeling like quitting~ I had to will my way though today. I’d be in the middle of a set of leg press or smith lunges or walking lunges or in my intervals and the thought to quit kept popping into my head :horns: –and each time I said “NO”, lol! It was one of those days when I wished I had a trainer/workout partner there pushing me on….But do you know what kept me going~ YOU!! Knowing that you’d be proud of me if I pushed through and Knowing that day after day many of you have to push through too. SO THANKS for the PUSH!!!

My day has been a good one!! I got up, showered and shaved right off the bat~ which is odd for me…typically I wait until after my workout or at least until I am awake to do all that. Then after I dropped the kiddos off I went to see my friend Brent…He opened a cool training studio/gym here in town about 2 months ago it’s called “ROCK Bottom Gym” www.rockbottomgym.com

Anyhow, I went to check it out and help a client of his with her contest posing~ it was really fun! While I was there I tried out his Jacobs Ladder -NEATO!!! It was very cool!!
Then I got a massage!!! IT WAS AWESOME!!!
Then I came home for a bit to eat, work and prep for the gym.

Crazy Days!!


OHHHH! Man!! I am so glad yesterday is in the books…things were crazy Smiling

Our workout was like this:
warm up on r-bike 10 min
Bench
95×15

one set of bench dips to failure

Tricep extesions

3 sets

run on tredmill- 4 min…stomach cramps…ate too soon close to workout…I need about 3 hours from eating to running, I have a very sensitive tummy Sad

So I did my intervals on the upright bike…they were hard since my legs were tired from legs the day b4

So there you have it…here at noon my DH is gonna come get us so that we can go do back, shoulders and bi’s and then I plan to run outside later.

I am leaning up very visibly…my abs are showing better daily…this morning my weight was 128, only 4 weeks to go!
Practicing posing is paramount for me at this point, I gotta showcase the goods the best way possible.

Well gotta go, I just heard a crash in the kitchen!!!
