Drink more water!

SSS Week #9 Mini Challenge- Drink 1.5 gallons of water daily!!

Oh my!! it’s already week #9!!! your mission this week is simple– Drink 1.5 gallons of water a each day
Typically my recommendation is to drink your GOAL body weight in ounces of water daily…for example. I weigh 128 and that’s pretty much my goal so I strive to drink 128 ounces daily, that is equal to 1 gallon.

But this week let’s get more aggressive after our water intake. Let’s strive for 1.5 gallons = 192 oz or 5.7 liters or 24 cups of water.

Chug a lug!!!

WATER IS SO GOOD FOR RAISING YOU METABOLISM,Cell Function, Brain function, Nutrient Transport, Electrolyte and Mineral Balance AND ELIMINATING TOXINS

…SO DRINK UP!!!!!

back to normal

Well school started back up today, hooray!
So I had a rather normal Wednesday (my Mom’s day out)
Got some much needed work done and was able to have some peace Smiling

I headed to the gym at about 4:40 and did a quick leg workout
I was outta there by 5:30–so short and sweet!

Do you know what the best part about leg day is for me–NO CARDIO!!

here is what I did
5 min r bike
squats
45×15
95×10
135×10
155x6x3
135×10

Rotary calf
270×10
360x10x3

Leg curls (kneeling one leg at a time)
60×10
80x10x4

Knee Extensions
110×10
130×10
150×10
170×10
190×6
130x10x2

Walking lunges
60x15x2

Seated Calves
90x10x3

Abbductors
70x15x2

That was it for eats today I have had a ton of tenderlion–like probably 10-12 oz, 4 eggs, a protien shake, tons of asparagus, salad greens, some cooked carrots, some olives, a couple slices of apple, some cashews and probably some other items I can’t think of now—but going strong on my determination to have protein and greens…still feeling good!!

Are you ready for THURSDAY!!! Let’s kick it again~ I have back and intervals tomorrow.

Night, night,
Michelle

I did it!! HOORAY!!



I got my booty outside and got in a good run!
4 min warm up
even min intervals to min #16…then a retard that had past me earlier, drove up beside me and made a smootch at me, I FLIPPED out (won’t mention exactly what I did) but he really made me mad- so RUDE…
so then I took a few mins and cooled down.
Total run 20 min
then I rode the r-bike at home for 20 more, sweated like a PIG!! I was so HOT!

Then I did the following circuit 2 times:
pull ups wide underhand grip 12, 10
Sit ups until i was bored
adductor exercises 25 reps
Laying side raises 20 each side
cats 5 for 5 secs each
push ups 20+10 knees, 20

Now I feel great!

This week, there is no excuses for this chika on the cardio/interval scene and you will see the fat melt off my booty!!

here is a peek into my weird eating habits (not the best, but hey we all need to treat ourselves a bit within limits of course)
M1: whey protein in water, 1/2 mc donald’s cinnamon roll 2 cups coffe P,C
M2: Salmon 7 oz, 1/2 corn dog (kids!), 1 popsicle yummmy
PPCF

that’s it so far 🙂

Happy 4th of July!!

P.s. I bought a lap top yesterday, I am so excited to get it. Dell should send it to me in about a week. CAN’T wait to get it!!!
