Be HAPPY in the process~ Shine in 49: Day 37

HI!! my Happy Friends!! I am so happy you are my friends~ I am a very lucky lady!

Sunday,  we didn’t make it to church but we did watch a message on TV by Joel Osteen– He spoke about REDEEMING our TIME. Meaning to use our time wisely and to be HAPPY in the process. It does no good for us to WASTE our time on being negative, grumpy, worried, stressed, anxious, bitter, unforgiving, jealous, etc….

The message was a great reminder to me to be HAPPY NOW~ to enjoy the JOURNEY toward my goals~ to JUST be happy!! I am going to focus hard on this…I want to be known as a happy person by everyone I know!!

My goal for this next week is to add in more cardio and to simply eat  HEALTHY!!
I’m starting my buffing phase today, just in time to see some nice FINAL results for our
contest– we have just 13 days left!!

Our mini-challenge for this 6th week is “NO DAIRY”~

My POA for the week is to do my MINI-CHALLENGE of NO DAIRY, get more intervals/cardio in, and to get back to more of a non-vacation attitude…Memorial Day is OVER!  I missed my workout yesterday- so my streak ended at 14 days of working out in a row– my goal is to keep striving to workout every day until my b-day– so despite not hitting my goal 100%, I am still going for it!!  I keep fighting even if a lose a battle once in a while!
T-Legs and run hills
W-back, intervals (bike)
Th-chest, intervals (running)
F-Legs
Sa-Back, intervals (running)
Su- small shoulder workout and abs

Happiness Rocks!!

 

Love your Happy friend,
Michelle

Fun Days!!…4 days to go

BuffMother's picture

Thu, 2012/02/23 – 6:56pm — BuffMother

I have felt really great all week!!  Good energy, good mindset, good focus~ I love it!!

Anyhow, I weighed this morning– 129 still…oh well..still a couple more days left until March 1st–maybe something amazing will happen to get me to my goal, lol!! Despite the scale staying relatively steady, I know I am getting more fit, eating better, feeling better– so what does that scale know anyway?? I still plan to take my pictures this weekend– they will tell more of the true story.

Last night we skipped going to the gym and played softball out in the yard instead.  It was really fun to hit the ball again, see my kids hit and be the pitcher 🙂  And guess what, I am SORE today! all sorts of forearm muscles and core muscle sorness!! AWESOME!! Then today’s leg workout was a bit shorter than I’d like, but the good thing is that we did do it!

#1 List 3- recent items in which someone or something was to BLAME for your failure. Then take responsibility for each by stating “I am Responsible for that ____________(the failure).”

1- blame kids for leaving the kitchen a mess…. “I am Responsible for that teaching my kids and instructing them to do their chores.”
2- blame others for tempting me with “junk food” and “candy”….”I am responsible for what goes into my own mouth, no one but ME!! I can say no thanks!!”
3- blaming lack of time for my lack of runs the past couple weeks “I am responsible for my own schedule, I have the time, I must take the time!”
#2 List 3 recent items in which you had a success. Then, revisit each of those successes and state “I am RESPONSIBLE for my success at _________”

1- I’ve been successful at organizing this 21 day contest….  “I am responsible for my success at being a leader in the 21 days kick the Habit contest”
2- I’ve been successful at crossing off many items on my to do list daily….”I am responsible for the hard work I put in daily and am proud to know I am accomplishing tasks daily that will make my life less stressful, more organized and more enjoyable.”

3- I’ve been successful at encouraging others daily– “I am responsible for helping others to accomplish their goals…i love spreading hope, helpful info and leading by example”

 

Okay…that was a tough task today– being honest like that about failures and success takes some major brain power.

Can you believe this 21 days is almost over??  I can’t wait to do it again!!!

Oh and by the way, I’m doing my 40 days to fit yet again– tons of people signed up for it again yesterday and today– feel free to join in on the fun!!
http://blog.buffmother.com/contest/40-days-to-fit-challenge/

 

Have a great night– I’m going to the store!!

Birthday ?'s ~ S6Day41

Weekly Q ~ Your Birthday!

 


This week’s “Weekly ?” is a timely one for me because It’s mine this Tuesday!!!
When is your Birthday?…
What do you love to do on your birthday?
Have you ever had a surprise B-day party?
What was your BEST or Worst birthday ever?
Do you have any funny B-day stories about you or others?
What is your favorite thing to GIVE others on their B-day?
As I mentioned my birthday is coming up on Tuesday, I was born June 14th, 1975!  I’ll be 27 again this year 🙂
I’ve been excited for it for my birthday for the past 2 months, lol!!

I an I-phone app called “Days Until’ and it has kept me in tune with my countdown to my birthday and with the countdown to the finish of the “Sizzlin’ in 6” contest also!!
I love to celebrate my birthday but I really don’t do much for it most times. I often end up just going out to eat and opening a few small presents with family. the sad news is that my DH seems to miss my birthday due to work travel almost every year…this year I do have plans. My girls (with their classes at school) are singing the National Anthem and another song during the pre-game at a minor league baseball game…HOW EXCITING!!
I remember back to my 5th birthday, it was probably the first one I remember and it was really neat. I woke up and came downstairs that day to see my first bike sitting in the living room!!! I was sooooo happy!! Then a couple hours later I really HURT myself by slamming my finger in the front door of our house~ OUCH!!
My 7th birthday was another great b-day…I actually got to have a BIG Party with my friends and BBQ chicken!! YUMM!!! I just loved being 7!!
The next B-day that really sticks out was my 18th…actually not exactly on my b-day but 6 days afterward, as a belated B-day gift I got an engagement ring!

My favorite thing to do for others on their Birthday has to be going out to eat with them and telling them how much I love them and how excited I am for the next year of their life. I’m not very good at shopping, so buying gifts is hard for me, I often just give gift cards or send out something I have on hand, LIKE a BuffMother! shirt, lol! –But I do love to get gifts :hehe:
I’ve never had a surprise B-day party…that’d be fun though!!!
When is your birthday and What are some of your Birthday Thoughts?
I just love Birthdays!!

GET MORE FIT!!~S6day34

 

I spent the morning motivating myself to get MORE FIT!! Honestly I am VERY fit compared to 95% of the population BUT, I know I am about 50-70% as fit as I can get. I am in a “comfort zone” and plan to break through and GET MORE FIT!!

Some of the sites I visited today were very motivational…I read blogs by Tri-athletes, Olympians, Coaches, etc….I visited the OLYMPIC website. I checked out some cool “sports” including the Triathlon, Judo, Luge, and Modern Pentathlon~ Oh and did you know Women’s Boxing will be in the 2012 Summer Olympics for the first time?

I also visited some competition sites for events coming up near the Las Vegas Area…I figured that’s a fun place for friends (team buffmother) to possibly gather for a fitness event…Hmmmm….Just thinking 🙂 And I did some research on PH balance, water/sodium intake, Olympic lifting programs, training programs for triathletes and bodybuilders…It’s all very MOTIVATING stuff and makes me even more aware of the fact I KNOW I can get MORE FIT!!
Will you JOIN ME in that resolve?

GET  it done starting NOW: Today is Day 34…and your workout is as follows~

Warm up- 6 minutes of cardio- any type… ease into it, prepare your body and mind for an effective workout.

Lower Body #2, ABS and Intervals

1- Squats– 3 sets of 10 (3×10)
…first set medium wt. warm up, second set heavier, heavier if needed ; last set 10th rep should be close to failure
ABS:

5- Walking Lunges 2×15

FINISH IT!! ~S6day33

Do you FINISH?  Would you consider yourself a finisher?  I would have to say that I AM~ most of the time… When I don’t finish something it’s because my heart is not in the project or I let my negative thoughts take over.  NOT FINISHING can become a bad habit…just like anything else.  I challenge you to challenge yourself and focus on FINISHING tasks and projects that you embark upon!  It will stretch you, make you grow, give you a sense of accomplishment,  and make you PROUD!!  You CAN do it!  Now is the time to FINISH!

I have Finishing on my mind because we are at the Finish of our 6 week Sizzlin’ in 6 contest….Just Just 10 Days left!!!….a little over a week left to get results that will show in my pictures and in my stats!  These next few days are also the FINISH of my Boosting Phase, YAY!! I plan to start buffing a bit early this month, my hormones are going to cooperate weather they want to or not!! I will finish the contest strong!!

Some of the things I am going to be staunch about during the finish of this contest are:

  • FASTED cardio!  i have not done much of this the past 2 years….just because I am in  a nice “comfort zone” with my body.  Well This buffing phase I don’t care about being comfortable…I want to see some fat loss!
  • Low-Low Carb diet…I am going to shoot for no more than 2 servings of Carbs a day.  The only way I am able to accomplish this is to go in with a NO CARB mindset.  I do that because carbs always “slip” in~ they are SNEAKY!
  • Smaller portion sizes- I typically have portions that are 25-30grams in size.  I’ll be shooting for 20g portions these next 2 weeks.
  • EXTRA Cardio- 20 mins EXTRA- 3 times a week and ONE LONG cardio day- 45-60 min session.

All of that combined with what i normally do WILL eliminate some fat off this body and I’ll be more ripped than I’ve been in quite a while!! I am ready to FINISH STRONG!!

Here are my workouts from the past 2 days:

Wed- Legs most exercises 3×10
Warm up elliptical
Leg Press
Squats
One leg at a time leg press
Smith Squats
Smith Lunges
Leg Extensions
Leg Curls

and some abs- not many…I was a bit tired this day~ cycle day 3 does that to me, plus I think I had some sinus issues.

Thurs-upper body- most exercises 3×10
warm up tanning- the gym got new a tanning bed!!
lat pulls- 1 set knee ups on roman chair between sets
pull ups
incline HS press- knee ups on bench between – 1 set
HS high lat pull- Standing knee ups- 2 sets
Bench
2 sets tricep bench dips- with plank finish

came home then ran hard intervals outside- 17mins total, but I PUSHED hard~ I am finally in good engouh shape to challenge my lungs…I am getting in shape man!!!  YAY!!

then I did 2 sets of perfect push ups, 2 sets of sit ups, some leg raises and stretching

Water is a little low…I think I’ll make myself some tea 🙂

Let’s FINISH strong!!!

Hair done, Legs done

Hair and legs were on tap~ both done.
I got my hair done finally!! it was too long between highlights, the last time I went was at the end of FEB–it looks so much better, you can see it tomorrow in my pics
