Let's attack it this spring so that we can be Buff and Beautiful in our Bikini's this summer!!
I am off to get some work done and then my WORK OUT!!
The cold hard truth hit me last night regarding my diet...I've been a super slacker and I am a carb addict (have been for ages...but I'm in a relapse!). I ended up eating way to much dairy and gluten for my poor tummy to handle yesterday and ended up with a tummy ache all night and part of this morning. The distance between what I KNOW works for me in my diet and the ACTUALLY DOING IT is way to far right now!! The cold hard truth is that I need to put much more effort into my food choices.
In order to break my current carb addiction I am going very low carb for the next couple of weeks-- it's going to coorelate perfectly with my buffing phase and hopefully catapult me towards a successful training period for the Warrior Dash. There's just about 58 days of training left befor the event!!
My plan to run yesterday never happened...my DD was still sick, so I spent the afternoon at the DR's office with her. She's doing better today-- NO FEVER FINALLY, so she'll make it to school tomorrow, YAY~!! Today's cycle day 3 for me, I have more energy than the past 2-- I have slept and insane amount the past 3 days! I guess my body likes to make up for the BAD SLEEP it gets during the last week of each cycle....
My plan for today will be to get to the gym EARLY so I can tan and run on the treddy before my son arrives for our lifting session. We have legs on tap! It should be a GREAT workout!! Here's the tenative line up: Leg Press, Knee ups on bench, Walking lunges, High Knees, Bulgarians, Laying side leg raises, Smith Lunges, Butt Squats, lower back/booty extensions.
Low, Low Carb will be tough, but I need to do it to "reset" my body and mind!!
Time to be HONEST and face the reality of my own weakness!
I can do it!!
Hey!! I'm back from my ski trip to Keystone...it was an amazing time! I skied 2 days, fell approximately 30 times and have only 1 bad bruise to show for it!! LOL!! It was a great break from real life and now I am trying my hardest to "RE-ENTER" life at full speed--- TOUGH to do!!
Anyhow, I came home a sick little girl and the mess that occurs when Daddy babysits for 4 days Layla stayed home today and I spent the day catching up on work, cleaning, cooking, shopping, laundry and got in a good chest workout with my boy.
Time to call it a night...but TOMORROW, I start the clean eats challege with Ya'll! Whohoo!!
In spy movies, I just love it when the spy goes out on a mission and has to go "dark"...they are invisible to their support team and just out there on their own in the danger. Well, I am going "DARK" for a few days-- my vacation mode is on and that means little to no computer time! I need the break from time to time.
Anyhow, I've been keeping super busy as I prep to leave-- I feel pleasently prepared. However that could change as I start packing, lol!! I always go into hyper drive when trying to pack for a trip-- too many options of what to bring, wear and pack??
Okay, in other news....I remembered something about myself this week. I find the most success in my eating when I eat 3 bigger meals daily vs. 5-6 smaller ones. There are several reasons why:
1- I can eat MORE at 1 setting-- I like eating bigger portions
2- I don't get overwhelmed with the prep/eating time when eating more often-- it's takes too much focus for me-- I'm not that focused, lol
3- Mentally, I don't feel like I am dieting when I eat fewer meals.
4- I have insulin resistant issues-- so eating less often helps my insulin to go down sometimes which actually allows me to burn fat
5- I dislike eating early in the morning-- I like eating my first meal about 3-5 hours after waking up-- extending my "fast" helps me burn some extra fat and gives me a chance to do fasted cardio from time to time
6- it's less stressful to my digestive system. I digest better when my enzymes are strong (utilizing them less often)....my body feels less stress from eating less often
Here's an interesting video that explains some of what I am talking about: http://www.cynthiapasquella.com/featured/how-eating-5-to-6-meals-a-day-can-make-you-age-faster/
So, just now at 9:15 I had a good breakfast of 2 whole wheat blueberry pancakes (not typical for me to eat grains), with butter and real maple syrup, 3 small strips of pork bacon, a "Carnivor" choc protein shake in water= CCFP and I've had 2 cups of coffee with half'n'half.
My plan is to use this fuel as a pre-workout meal--- I'll be hitting the trail for a hill workout after it digests-- at about 11:00
Alrighty, we'll I am off to do some laundry, run, pack, lift weights, get my son's hair cut and then RELAX before I fly out early tomorrow. I'll be back Monday!! Please, pray that I don't hurt myself skiing!!

I started a post earlier about my workouts and got interrupted by my kiddos...things around here have been very crazy this week.
So here is a brief summary of what I was going to write.
Workouts have been perfect this week!!
Today was back, shoulders, bi's and intervals...plus extra cardio
yesterday was legs...lunge heavy day :)
Sooooooo! Things are super and tomorrow is my pamper day so I will have time to get do some major catch up here...including my training program for the WARRIOR DASH... just 10 weeks away!!
Keep up the super attitudes!! you all rock-
Just 6 days to go...have you liked your results?
Check out this task about creating a happier life:
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!!
