Stand and Dance abs: “Fab Abs” Day 13

NO Equipment, no problem– you can still get a great cardio workout and for your abs too!

Your Challenge for Fab ABS day #13 is to do this STANDING ABS + Dancing abs for at least 13 minutes! Put on some music and get moving!!

STANDING ABS

Be sure as you do this workout to use good posture- tummy in, keeping core nice and tight, we want to create a long lean midsection
1- hopping with variations of side to side “ski jumping” keep chest high, long lean torso and tummy tight- use a mirror to make sure you are not favoring one side over the other.
2- Do some runner drill high knee skipping with the variation of forward, more side to side movement and exaggerated crunch by bringing upper body toward knee.
1 min of it followed by 1 minute of recovery in just marching= interval training!!

Dancing- ab twist

WORK IT HARD!!

Your BuffMother, Michelle

Every Dayness

We are starting our second week of every day in MAY!! Congrats for making it the first 7 days!!

 

Week #2’s focus for diet is to EAT MORE GREENS and in our fitness “Strength”.  I write more about those later.

 

It’s Thankful Thursday today!! Be sure to think about something you are thankful for today. And/Or be extra thankful. The art of APPRECIATION is so powerful.  Reach out to and thank someone, you will be amazed at how much it impacts you in the positive!!

 

Our diet challenge for today is to eat some fish! Each day of the week we have a set diet challenge that is meant to get you thinking about your food intake and help you get out of the “grind” of eating the same things all the time.  Variety in food intake is vital for nutritional and mental reasons.  Try some fish today!  Tuna, Salmon and Talapia are some of the fish I eat.

 

 

Today,  is my first official day of buffing too, yay! The workout on tap is

May 8 (Day 4 of my 10 day training cycle)~ Legs 6-pack of PEPSI ab routine

What Energizes You??~ Shine in 49: Day 22

I think it’s very neat how each and everyone one of us are different~ what gets one person EXCITED can be extremely BORING to someone else.  That’s why I am wondering WHAT ENERGIZES YOU?  Will you share your answer with me by commenting here?

Some of the things that energize me are:

  1. Encouraging others- When I encourage others it keeps me energized to stay accountable myself and to set a good example~ otherwise I’d feel like a hypocrite
  2. Competition- give me a way to compete with someone and I will get intense!
  3. Performing- I like the pressure of needing to “perform”; I rise to the occasion and “turn it ON”
  4. Teaching others- I love sharing what I know with others~ I pride myself on being able to explain complicated things in a way that is not so complicated.
  5. SPORTS! I love playing and watching soooo many sports~ I used to think I should have been born a boy.
  6. RESULTS- getting results from something I worked towards energizes me to keep going!
  7. Seeing others succeed!! Success Stories are so inspirational and energizing
  8. Hormones- I am obsessed with hormones, lol!
  9. Supplementation- I love doing HUMAN exeriments on myself and learning about every type of nutrient known to man!
  10. Exercise and Sports Science~ I am a total nerd when it comes to this stuff!  I really love reading research articles, medical journals about anything to do with training and sports supplementation research, etc…I should really go back to school and get my masters or doctorate in it.

On the other hand, some things that DO NOT energize me are:

  • Handyman stuff
  • Tools
  • Crafts, Sewing, scrap-booking, etc…
  • Cooking, cleaning, housework
  • homework
  • reading for leisure (unless I have a reason to read something, you won’t find me reading)…I do like looking a pictures in magazines 🙂
  • decorating
  • shopping- unless it’s for shoes, I like shoes!
  • basic hygiene- I hate showering, shaving, blow drying my hair, putting on lotion, make up, etc…I do it, but I don’t like it!~LOL!

So what energizes you?
And how can you use those interests to energize others?

-Michelle
p.s. We are close to the Contest HALF WAY point~ today’s a rest day!!  Week #4 starts today!!

Sore Booty!

I have a sore booty today– “happy dance” …YIPPIE!!

My workout yesterday was Squats, Deadlifts, Knee Extensions and Lunges!  I spent the day in at my “old” house- working on getting things out of the attic and shed, organizing, packing, mowing the lawn and uprooted about 20 more baby tress from my planter to transplant to our farm.

Today my to do list is crazy full again and I’ve already gotten the trash out, done the dishes and made breakfast :

  • Get Cuji into groomers
  • Meet with the painter for an estimate
  • Get truck tires aligned
  • Coaching call with a client
  • Workout- run (from and to the tire place so that I don’t have to sit there an WAIT!) and lift upper body
  • Plus, get to work on the 4 training programs I have to write this week!

Busy, busy, but GREAT!!

Hope your booty is sore like mine, lol!!
