$18 cash money homie!

Just found out today how much $$ I won my Diet bet game with Zuzka Light…I put up a bet of $30 and won $48!! SWEET way to make $18 cash! Join my contest we start 11-11, you could make some money for losing weight!! www.DietBet.com/BuffMother

 

I had a facial today, ran a couple errands and had my house cleaned…being pampered rocks!!  Then came home to an inbox full of awesomeness! Thanks for all the great responses to my plea for testimonials!! I’ve been working on responding to them, about half way there!

 

It’s day 39 in our contest

I’m going to take today as a rest day. I’m beat and we are fighting a cold at our house, so I don’t want to get too run down. Gunner has a game in about an hour, I’m going to eat something and get ready to roll!

 

here’s a good quote that gets you thinking!

Our ultimate freedom is the right and power to decide how anybody or anything outside ourselves will affect us.

Mojo is on the rise!

HEW!! I’ve had a weird week…It’s been very busy, very good and bad all at the same time, lol!! The GREAT part of my week has been the SUPER Start of the Six to Sexy contest!!  I’m so excited for us to have stellar results!! The MOJO is definitely there and we are going to continue to have a blast as we move along this FALL!!

 

The not so great part of my week…I got horrible chigger bites last weekend while i was in the woods, it took until Thursday to finally be feeling more normal. Then, add to that a nasty bruise cut on the back of my heel from moving a chair on Tues, I was limping all over on Wednesday. All those issues are better now– it’s going to be a great day and weekend ahead!

 

My Mojo towards being SEXY is rising!  I had a much better day yesterday (a rest day)…feeling good about life right now!

Today’s post~ Day 6:

HELP Please! Sexy Volunteers?

 

 

Today’s about my GARAGE make over~
I am working towards clearing it out to move all my gym equipment into it. I have to give away a bunch of stuff and also put a bunch of stuff in the attic or other sheds.  I also have an area that never got painted to finish.  Once I get at least half of it empty I can buy flooring and have my HOME GYM assembled. It’s a nice piece of equipment that would really ADD to my workouts!

 

 

Other things on my TO DO List:

  • complete my starting stats (pics and thoughts already done)
  • bring Gunner to a b-day party
  • trip to post office
  • workout- upper body lift (a mish-mosh of NON-SORE bodyparts) and run

We’ll time to GO!!

I’ll be back in a bit!

Birthday Countdown

Every year I get to this point of the year and feel the need to AMP it up for my birthday.  60 days from now (June 14th) is my 39th birthday. My last one in the 30’s– eeeeeeekkkk!

 

My PLAN! is to follow a good plan for me and my life and goals! I took some time to write up a plan for myself just now and I’m excited to have such a great trainer, lol!!

The way the plan is written is in 6×10 day segments or micro-cycles.  The first 20 days will be about regaining consistency, focus and increasing my fitness level all the while nursing my shoulder back to 100%.

The Next 20 days will be  about really pressing in and getting stronger, more fit and more muscle!

Then the final 20 days will be GO time in regards to the “finishing touches”…leaning up, firming the butt and of course making my ABS POP!!

 

Today is cycle day 9 so I’ll be doing BUFFING STYLE workouts the next 10 days.  My weight is currently 131.4; my goal for this first 20 days is to get back down to a “real weight” of 127-128 which should be easy since I’m still holding vacation and inactivity weight.  I’ll plan to take a set of progress pics after the first 2 weeks to make my goals for the next 20 days.

 

POA for this week:

Tues: Run hills (6) recover, eat and do legs early evening

Wed: Upper Body and Intervals on bike or other method Thur: Longer run with sprints(4) at the end Fri: Lower Body in the am Sat: off Sun: Upper body and Hills (6-8)

Yesterday, my MONDAY was a rest day of sorts. I spent my whole afternoon at the hair salon trying to get the PINK out of my hair.  The “hair chalk” totally would not budge.  We had to process it twice and there is still some pink in it, but it looks a million times better!!

Time for me to get a couple things done and then hit the trail for hills!!

60 days to go!!

Track Excitement!

HEY YA!! Contest day 41!! S2S~ Day 41: Sexy Daughters?

My body said NO to my plan to workout yesterday…I had yet to take a rest day all of April– and My BODY KNEW IT!  So I had NO REAL WORKOUT YESTERDAY~ I did get in 100+ AWESOME Smith Lunges with 100#’s on the bar!! my booty is so happy, lol!!

Today I’ve got in my 20 mins fasted cardio on the bike

I’m gonna lift and go for a run in just about 10 mins!

I’ve been on the computer all day researching the US Track and Field events for Junior Olympics.  I registered as a coach and will soon be forming a track club here selfishly for myself and kids, lol!  Next year if all goes well we’ll open it up to other kids in the area.

I’ll be training for the 800m with my son and my girls will train for some events too–not sure which ones just yet for them?? — so we’ve got about 8 weeks to get ready for the Arkansas Meet, it’s on June 15th in Little Rock .

I’m excited about it!!

Gotta go for now, I’ll be back tomorrow to post a bit more!!

Love, Michelle

p.s. I’ll start my workout after I check out from sexydresses.com

A bit slow, ready to chat!

I’m a bit slow getting rolling today—I’m SCARED to move much, due to my neck.  I am doing better so far today!! YAY!!  I am going to make today another complete REST DAY, but I expect by tomorrow I’ll be able to do something again.  Thanks so much for your well wishes and prayers…I can FEEL your love helping me heal fast!!

Today’s Contest POST~

S2S~ Day 24: Sexy workouts

6 Daily Goals– that will be topics in my daily journal

  1. Cycle day- day 11…so sad that I’m missing out on my buffing– but at the same time very glad I am out now when my appetite is controlled.  If I was injured like this during boosting, I’d be eating much more!
  2. Weight-
  3. Sexy To do’s- I am going to go tanning today and give my feet a pedicure! I’ve also started to think about my wardrobe for VEGAS
  4. Workout- none today– gotta let me neck heal.
  5. Meal POA- My focus here is to be sure to eat more veggies, fruit and protein. NO GRAINS today. I’ve had pizza 2 times in the past week– bad for my belly   so far today: chicken breast (4oz), 4 big strawberries, 1 mini cucumber
  6. Sexy Actions– been “Talking” about sexy with the hubby already today- flirty talk is always fun!
Yesterday, I went to the chiropractor and at the same time got Cuji in to be groomed.  Once he adjusted me (he said my c2 and c5 were both out) I did feel some relief.  It only lasted about 45 mins though…then the spasm started up again.  And I think they were at an all time WORST last night– but laying down and rest helped the pain to stop.  Now I’m at least able to sit up behind the computer in bed.
My plan for today is to move around a little but not do too much– I have some paperwork to complete and I also would like to go tanning.  I haven’t gone in a couple months and need to get a little color prior to vegas.  Plus the heat may feel nice on my neck.
I’m also getting very excited for EASTER!  I love EASTER!!  I should plan some YUMMY FOOD and activities for the kids!!  The girls all have pink dresses to wear– they are going to be so cute!!  Hope it doesn’t rain

Well…have a good one! I plan to enjoy my REST day as much as I can!!

Love,
Michelle

XMAS Day 10: “rest day”…

If you’ve gotten in your workouts this week, you deserve a rest day.  Resting and letting your muscles recover is key to rebuilding your body, metabolism and mind!

On my days “off”, I like to do RESEARCH for my next workout or learn some new exercises.  Here’s a long list of videos I’ve put online over the years.  If you enjoy any of them please comment (it really helps them gain traffic).
