Don't give any energy….

Don’t give any energy….to the NEGATIVES in your life. 

Think of Negatives as a Monster who likes to eat- we’ll call him “NEGGIE the Monster” 

Neggie loves eating compliant cookies, crabby apples, mean meat, yelling yogurt, depression donuts, guilt goodies, temper tacos, etc…

Don’t feed Neggie!!!

He’ll only get bigger and more ferocious!!  If you find yourself feeding “Neggie”- STOP and run away!! He’s a dangerous MONSTER! When I feel “Neggie” getting hungry…  I lean on my faith I know my God is Good, Positive, Lovely and He wants me to confidently ignore “NEGGIE” and press on towards my true purpose in life- to LOVE!

Instead of thinking about the negative trials and emotions we feel in life- feed the positives in your life by purposly giving them attention and focus= give the positive food!  Purposely attack negatives by thinking of all the great blessings you have and focus on those!

Your relationships: family, kids, parents, husbands, friends, coworkers, sisters, your buffmother friends
Your abilities: to walk, run, swim, jump, dance, sing, talk, type, read, workout
Your possessions: house, your car, your job, your clothes, your computer
Your future possibilities: your next vacation (to the BuffMother gathering!!), your weight loss goal, your competition goal, your educational goal, your spiritual goals, your kids futures, an upcoming photoshoot , the upcoming holiday season

Focus on all the positives- they are endless- FEED THEM!!  You will be amazed at how far you can go in life if you do!!!

I am focused on the positive blessings in my life today and I LOVE IT~ WooHoo!  I am so blessed I can hardly contain myself.  I have so many awesome friends, abilities, possessions and goals in life- It is so fun!!  I can’t wait to see what the future has in store!

Physically I can see SQUATTING in my future~ I had a good chest/tri/ab workout yesterday to get my MOJO flowing! 
Professionally I am excited to help other’s see squatting in their future

Let’s have a Powerfully positive day today!!!

Love you bunches,

Michelle

Now is the time to Focus!

Do you have ADD?  I think I might…It’s induced by having children.  I think God actually gives women ADD when they become mothers.  We have to have it otherwise the daily interruptions, screams for help, “emergencies” and  accidents would throw us over the edge!  I embrace my ADD to a certain extent, but sometimes I’d like to SHUT IT OFF and just FOCUS!  Now that my kids are all in elementary school during the day…i have time to myself, I have time to FOCUS!  Now is the time for me to FOCUS!!

My current focus is a lot about getting CENTERED and RE-Igniting my FAITH and Passion for my God given purpose in life.  I’ve had a rough year and life has battered me a bit. I believe it’s made me stronger, YET it’s caused me to loose FOCUS on why I do what I do.  I’ve lost focus on my “WHY”…I need it again and plan to spend the remainder of this 2009 Focused on getting my FOCUS back!

That said I’ve decided I need to “wait’ on truly OPENING up for training until the new year.  I have too much going on~ THE SLAVE DRIVER in me needs to allow myself THIS TIME to FOCUS more on ME!

My POA for today got a bit messed up because of my workout last night lacking proper SUPPORT- Support from 2 sports bras that is…I have to wear 2 sports bras when I run.  AND I left for the gym with out my extra one last night~ I was PUMPED to run, but couldn’t do it BOUNCING all over tar-nation!  I did get in good intervals on the elliptical instead.

Here’s my workout from last night:
Tan for 9mins and r-bike 5 mins
Chest press
75×20
95z15x2sets

Lat pulls
135×10
150x10x2sets
one set of knee ups on bench

Bench Press
45×15
95×10
one set of push ups 12 reps
115×7
115×9
115×6
crunches on bench with feet up on bar

Dips
8, 7
incline sit ups

Incline Chest Press
90x10x3sets

Bicep curls
45×15
50x10x2

20 mins of even min intervals on the elliptical (7 HARD minutes)
Pull ups10

my diet was lower carb yesterday, but no greens.  I’ll get some in today for sure!:
PPPPP- eggs, chicken, protein shake,
CCC-
FFF -sausage, sunflower seeds, oil

Today’s POA- fasted cardio-  warm up on elliptical 10 mins; run intervals 20mins; steady cardio on u-bike 10-20 mins and MAYBE Legs in the pm…I may wait and shif them to tomorrow though 🙂

The extra Focus I’ve been putting on running/intervals and eating lower carb is paying off in the mirror and on the scale. This moring I was 126 on cycle day 8~ I expect to be under 125 by the time I take my pics and stats for the end of the SSS contest!! :whoohoo:  I AM GETTING MORE FIT all the time!~!!  I promise it does work if you work it and it’s worth the pain and effort!!!

NOW IT THE TIME TO FOCUS!!
