First off, I need to say Happy birthday to Darcie!!  TEAM BuffMother would be totally different without you– I appreciate you so much and am so glad God brought you into my life.  I hope your day and year are amazing!!

 

Next, I wanted to just give you a “sickness” update. I am still on the mend. Probably at about 85% healthy. My lungs and nose are still a bit stuffy– and energy levels  are not at their normal just yet. Hoping that by mid week I’ll be feeling better.

 

Thirdly, I recorded a video today about my new Diet bet

 

Fourthly, I also recorded a video about Gym Angel Energy Angel…

i sick :(

I fought the good fight FOR DAYS, but last night my body gave in and got the cold that’s been going through our household.

I’m here sitting inside SICK! BUT the sunny side is that Tons of GREAT THINGS are on TV today– the AFC, the NFC and the UFC!  Getting ready to watch them now.

I ran a killer workout yesterday AFTER cleaning the coop and starting a fire….

15 hills– 5 steep, 5 fast low grade–walking down recovery, 5x 30 sec with 30 sec walk/30 jog recovery.  It feels really good to be progressing with my running again. After the lifting I did some upper body lifting.

Birthday Success

Gracie’s 13th bday was a fun success. Her Aunt extended an invite to do a “SURPRISE” party at her house for her with a special guest of honor all the way from MN, Grandma Mary!

It was a difficult task to get Gracie to the event due to the fact she wanted to SHOP, lol!  But I prevailed and got her there for the lunch surprise!

 

The day ended up feeling very long for all of us– I couldn’t believe how exhausted I was by just 5 pm!

Anyhow, It was a day off for me.

Today, the fun continues as we still have b-day shopping to do today.

New Week, New Plan!

New week, new plan!

I’ve joined in with Darcie on the workout every day challenge she made to herself…I am 3 days in Friday was 20 mins fasted cardio/lower body, Saturday was upper body lifting and yesterday was a hills run for the first time since I broke my toe– it hurt a bit on the last 3, PLUS, I spent a lot of time outside cleaning up the yard and chicken coup AND watching football!!

I’m so loving fall and football…all the teams I wanted to win, won!

 

This week’s POA~

Today: fasted cardio on Bike and lift Chest Tri’s in pm

Tues: fasted cardio and a run in pm

Wed: fasted cardio and legs in pm

Thurs: an interval run

Fri: lift Back/Shoulders/Biceps

Sat: lift Chest/Triceps and Run

Sun: some fasted cardio

A bit more cardio this week to get my body rolling on a detox phase. I am boosting, but will be pushing towards more endurance and “cleaning” up the diet.

We’ve got a bit of a cold rolling through our house, Gunner and Gracie are both home from school today.  I’m hoping no one else gets the crud full force!  I can tell I’m fighting it a bit, but I won’t let it win!  My plan is to have an amazing week!!

Hope you have a great week too!!

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!!

-Michelle

6 days to go!!

Just 6 days to go…have you liked your results?

Check out this task about creating a happier life:
http://therallyroom.com/node/51914

I have been thinking about this all day…things keep on popping up that make me come back to CHALLENGE=CHANGE

In every thing in life if you want to change you must face the challenge.

NO matter what EASY is not the road to success. If you want your body to change you must Challenge it! My body goes backwards instantly if I don’t constantly challenge it.

IT is not easy to be BUFF but it is SO worth it!!

I love Angela’s quote “pain is fat leaving my body!” So true, you must be willing to go through the pain to get to where you want to be.

Challenge yourself in every aspect of life and you will accomplish your dreams!!
I hope you like your DREAM!!

6 days to go!

16 days into this….

Have you liked this challenge?  I hope so…
I know there was a time when we all need to step back and think about our LIKES and DISLIKES.  I embraced this idea when posting my facebook profile…I actually found it easier to describe myself by listing my dislikes vs. my likes.  Life is too short to spend our time on doing things we really don’t like. Now, I must clarify this a bit…you will still have to do things you DISLIKE in life– but if you can limit those items, life will be so much better!!  Also, some things I dislike I must do in order to have items I LIKE come to fruition.  With that said…

Your task for today is to write 2 lists, what you like and dislike.

I LIKE:

I DISLIKE:

Then, simply STOP doing what you truly DISLIKE, even if it’s something as big as a career!  Take action now towards being able to STOP doing what you dislike and find a way to replace it with what you LIKE!

Today’s workout ideas (you’ll LIKE these):

Beginner:

STRETCH 20 mins- do the upper body and lower body stretching routines I suggested and/or do a YOGA workout

Back to Life~

Well…I feel as though today life is back to normal.  The past week was crazy with all sorts of new things, appt, visits, b-days, trips, etc. happening.  Now today is NORMAL! NORMAL is good cheerleaders

My foot/ankle is healing well but still rather swollen- I think that if I can get the swelling out of it I’ll be good to go! Any tips??

I know that alternating heating/icing, light movement and massage are is good therapies for swelling- but if anyone knows of some “secret” balm, soak or method- let me know  🙂

Last week was by far my worst week of the contest for workouts- I was dealing with too many abnormal scheduel disturbances to get to the gym like I wanted….I did get in 2 lifting workouts, 2 football practices, 1 run outside for the week, but that’s not nearly the pace I’ve been on, nor is it the goal.

This week I will get to the gym more- since I am not able to run or able to practice at football.  The plan is as follows:
T- chest/tris/ABS
W- Legs/Abs
Thurs-Back/Sh/Biceps
Fri, Sat, Sun- REPEAT the same 3 days-
 

Today is my first official day of buffing- Cycle day 5- and GREENS are GOING DOWN into my BELLY~!!!  LOVE Them!!!

I’ll be back in a bit with my workout report,

Michelle
