Success SATURDAY~

www.BuffMother.com

I feel that I am at a turning point in my life….all the effort, blood sweat and tears of the last 15 years of my adult life are finally paying off!! I can taste SUCCESS!!  What an amazing feeling~  It is true that success is not a destination but a journey…however there is a place in life where you need to step back and say~ “I have succeeded” and SMILE!  In no way am I satisfied with a mere TASTE of success though…I am hungry for MORE, MORE, MORE!!  God has a SUPERNATURAL life in store for me and I plan on living it!!!

My BuffMojo this week totally rules!!
I have really felt a huge amount of progress in my attitude and fitness level~ I think I am BACK!!  I’ve not had any bread this week…just  a tish of grains.  AND I’ve done all my lunges so far~ just tomorrow left!!

BACK workout on a Saturday~

Happy Saturday~ a quick hello!!
I am crazy busy today for a Saturday…I guess cuz there is just a lot going on right now with school starting, Travis’ BUSY up coming work week, still catching up on my “work stuff” from last week, and HOUSEWORK too!!

I did sneak away to the gym though for an awesome back workout…I felt strong 🙂

Here is a quick recap:
One arm hammer rows
assisted wide overhand pull ups
cats
med ball torso twists
rows
lat pulls
wide cable lat pulls
1 set of db shoulder work
Walking lunges 100 outside (now)

I think the creatine I was taking was “old” and ineffective…so I started taking NOXCG3 yesterday and woke up weighing 3 pounds more today!  I think it works, lol!

Well, back to work~ keep rocking those bootys and stay focused on how Buff you will be in a year!!
Love,
Michelle

p.s. I’ve been working hard on my workouts all week…I’ve been absent cuz my modem blew up last sunday and I just got back online on Friday–MISSED YOU ALL!!

Saturday NIGHT OUT!!

Well, we are going out as a family tonight! It should be fun and busy out on the town. Not sure where we are going to eat yet, but I plan to eat whatever I desire, lol!

Oh by the way–I cut Gunner’s (GUNZ’s) hair last week–and finally uploaded a couple pics–he now has stripes on one side of his mohawk:

Today I am taking off from workouts, just trying to save my energy for another track workout tomorrow or Monday–we’ll see how it shakes out. So, my day was spent working on programs and prepping for my trip. I am getting so EXCITED!!

Well off to shower to go out!

Saturday Talk

I am proud today because I have learned to “slow down” a bit and enjoy life a bit more. This morning I got in a tizzy rushing to the gym, feeling the pressure to rush in order to get it all done in time to get a present and a Gunner to a b-day party by 1:30. BUT DH gently reminded me to “relax” and I was able to “slow down” and have had a GREAT day since!

We had a good workout-

Warm up r-bike 5 min
Lat pulls
110×15
push ups 15
130x10x2
pull ups 10

push ups 15

Hammer strength over head pull downs
90×20
push ups 15
140×8
Hammer strength Iso lateral shoulder press
50×25
push ups 15
50×10

core stuff-
oblique work
ab wheel
cats
supermans
hanging sit ups

Then off to the store, roller rink, fitness store- we are getting an upright bike finally- and MOE’s restaurant.

in a couple hours I will go for a hard run and can you believe my hammies are still SUPER sore from Wednesday’s workout??? That’s what happens when you take “a break”…SUPER soreness when you come back.

Have a GREAT Saturday and don’t forget about being proud of yourself today!

Happy Saturday

Just wanted to pop in an say “hi”…
I had a wonderful night last night, my sweet MIL is here visiting and she let me and her son(my DH) go out! Whooohooo! I love going out with my baby. The picture here shows the green dress I wore last night! We had a wonderful time, stayed up too late, etc…

So I am in recovery mode today. And guess what, my buffing is going GREAT! I weighed 124 this morning! BUT, Due to Severe dehydration, YUCK!!! Real weight is more like 127. I can now see that my last bulking phase has added some more muscle to my butt! FUN!!!

I have a very busy weekend, lots of work to do and a family get together tonight. We are planning to have pizza and I think I will give myself some freedom diet wise today since I still have this week of “buffing” and I am already within 1 pound of my weight goal.

Have a great weekend everyone and keep all the great words of encouragement flowing.

-Michelle
