No more "Pussy-footing" around for this lady. I'm sick of how I've been so lax about my workouts since the middle of October....Don't get me wrong, I've been working out, more than the average human, but I've been cuting myself too much slack by missing workouts, putting them off and SKIPPING items I just don't "feel like" doing. NO MORE!!
I've set some very SOLID goals for myself to attain by Feb 14th, 2013~
- Workout 6 days a week on a 3 days split
- Run at least 2 times a week
- Play tennis 2 times a week
- Goal weight 123
I may add to the list but that's the main focus...
I'll be starting today, with legs!
Off to get it done!
I seriously am worried I'm turning into a HERMIT. I don't want to leave my house! I know my hormones tend to make me feel this way monthly, but I am seriously feeling more and more like I don't want to venture away from my "Sanctuary" of a ranch. We moved out to the country about a year ago and I'm totally diggin it! I've learned so much about myself this past year...I love doing so many things that I never knew existed prior to this past year.
I love driving a tractor
I love planting fields
I love brush hogging
I love building big fires
I love running hills on a dirt trail
I love hunting varmits
I love shooting guns (i got a hand gun and a shot gun!)
I love making mulch (our anniversary present was a small mulcher)
I love cutting down weeds and sumac!! it makes me feel powerful!
I love working out at home! (I never thought that'd be the case)
I enjoy the sunrise (Before this year, I barely ever got up to see one, lol)
...I could keep going but the point is that life is so amazing-- a constant adventure and discovery!!
So far our 28days of Chistmas is a success!! tons of posting tons of fun #workoutproof pictures~ tons of great women who I'm so excited to get to know better!!
I got in my workout last evening at about 6pm... here's my proof pic~ I'm sore today!!
Today I hope to get my workout done earlier. Upper body and a run is on tap!!
Have a GREAT day #2!!
Hi!! I'm in a total time warp this week...Holidays do that!!
I'm so excited on many fronts~ We are getting geared up for our next contest...Hope you got the email and signed up, DETAILS are HERE. The sign up for the sock exchange ended yesterday: We had 68 ladies sign up to participate, It's gonna be some crazy wild fun to see all of those sock pictures!!
I got in a workout today at the gym with my mma friend Lylna~ we worked our backs, shoulders and did squats-- then to finish up she put me through some boxing drills~ it was fun!!
Tennis was canceled for this week...due to the holidays.
Today I want to say thank you to sports...Thank you SPORTS for teaching me tons of PHYSICAL Skills, but more so mental skills like : Determination, Hard work, Consistency, Team Work, Encouragement and the Ability to KEEP Pressing on knowing that PRACTICE makes PERFECT.
Well, time for some relaxation!!
I'd also LOVE to get in a leg workout and/run...I probabaly shouldn't do all of it though because I'll be DEAD if I do. It's been fun recently to "feel" like working out . I had a long spell there where I didn't and it's hard to have to "make yourself" do it every time.
I am thankful for every amazing female hero of mine-- they are the women who forge ahead to impact the world, leading by example and have a no excuses attitude. I have many such heros, but today I want to say THANK YOU to 3 specific ladies: Joyce Meyer (www.joycemeyer.org), Laurie Beth Jones (www.lauriebethjones.com) and Heidi Baker (http://irismin.org/). May God continue to
"I never understood why people want to do big things...
Just do little things, with great Love."
-- Mama Heidi Baker
Keep being thankful and pressing into the positives in life!!
This weekend was a good one~
Saturday morning my hubby shot a buck...it was the first on our land and very sentimental!! We brought it in to the meat processor and it'll be some good eating~
That afternoon I hit the trail for a run, It was crazy warm for November 11th. It was also VERY WINDY, but nice where I ran as it's sheltered from the wind.
After the run Travis and I climbed up on the roof of our house and enjoyed the evening looking for deer~ Here's my view:
Saturday's thank you: Thank you God for my beautiful land!!
Yesterday was GLOOMY and rainy all day!! I was so thankful that it was NOT SNOW(Sunday's thank you)!!
I got in a decent leg workout~ and this MOVE, No clue what exercise I'm doing?? LOL-- It must have wore me out cuz I crashed while watching sunday night football.
Today is sunny again but started off really cold!! Gracie has an impacted tooth so we visited the otho who recommended surgery and braces for the little lady. It's going to mean a lot of extra driving over then next 9 months! Today, my thank you is to my mini-van:
Dear Mini-Van, You are black and dirty, but I love you~ Thanks for getting our whole family (+1 at times) to where we need to go. I appreciate your storage space and smooth ride. Although, I hate your unstylish appearance and lack of EDGINESS~ and I'd trade you for a HUMMER in a heartbeat, You are what I got for now~ I do love you and I THANK YOU!!
Time for me to get rollin' my workout can't wait any longer!!
Have a super Monday!!
I am thankful for the USA!! I love the USA!! Because of our freedom, our culture, our awesome country, our diversity and most of all because of our BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY!! We are allowed free enterprise in this country and I've been able to
Some practice on olympic lifts- snatch, cleans, push presses
Squats- 2 sets warm up; 2 sets @135-- I am weak on these recently- I think NO CARBS has a big effect, plus I've been inconsistent
Each and every new month, I like to give myself a theme and set specific goals for my fitness. I am a big believer that "MAINTENANCE" is a myth- we are either moving forward or backwards in life, and more specifically in our fitness!
My goal is to keep the mojo I've gained over the past couple months!
I have 2 specific fitness goals:
1- I want to stay excited for Tennis...I've changed my lesson day to Tues and added in a FRIDAY Drills day!! the extra time on the court will help me to keep progressing!!
2- Based upon my "after" photos from the SSS I need to be STAUNCH about work my legs/booty HARD at least 2x's a week !!
As for a theme of the month...I am all over sharing success stories. I've had good intentions for a long time about this goal-- but keep putting it off and being lax about updating www.BuffMother.com with them. NO MORE-- this month is all about giving PROPS to some amazing TEAM BUFFMOTHER ladies.
Speaking of which, I continue to get SSS contest entries (I've emailed confirmation to everyone whom I've received) !! thanks so much for all the effort and kind words!! The SSS was a SUCCESS!! The last day to get your entry in is MONDAY the 5th.
This week has been a bit of a mish, mosh for workouts-- nothing structured, just doing whatever I want. I'll start back to more of a set routine come next week-
Monday- tennis with my girls
Tues- Push ups and other chest exercises, plus some squats, a short run + 4 sprints
Wed- Tennis and Trampoline, Did photos, Walk during trick or treat-- Here's a video of me BOUNCING AROUND! LOL!!
Yesterday I did a mish mosh of exercises-- Bench, shoulder press, bicep curls, dips, dead lifts, abs
TGIF ladies, I'm heading out for my run in a bit-- it's very nice here today!
