14 days to GO!!
Well, 1 week of the contest is over and we are ready to rock the next 2!!
There are 14 days of the "Kick the Habit" contest left, and I feel my Mojo on the rise~
How are you doing?? More focused than ever I hope!!
Be sure to visit the rally room today for your task, some encouragement and workout ideas:
I had a champion weekend as planned!!
Sunday- ran hills- I did 5 x approx 200m hills...and one killer LONG one of about 400 -500 meters~ i should measure them some day! Then I finished with 2 100 meter sprints on the flat grass-- they felt so easy after the hills!
Wed- a run and mish mosh of plyo type exercises and abs
Sunday- a run and mish mosh of plyo type exercises and abs
Alright!!! it is starting to get close to "CRUNCH" time for this contest....I know that every day I get more and more intense about kicking and attaining my habits!!!
Let's make these next 2 weeks our best yet!!
Hi ya gals....
You all seem to be busy beavers today :)
I hope you are setting some time aside to rest a bit today, I have been all morning. I am also continuing to "feel" better little by little.
Gracie though is sick again today...poor thing :(
The birthday party went well the girls got...little bikes with training wheels, princess and tinkerbell suit cases, strawberry shortcake shoes, puzzels, play guitars, painting books, baby dolls and a few other litttle items. We had a good time!!!
Then last night Travis and I got to go on a date!! MAN I love him, I could spend every second of my life hanging out with him, we have so much fun together. His birthday is on Thursday and He will be 36...no one ever believes he is that old. I don't believe it either!
So for today's workout HMMMM...I think I will go running outside this afternoon and do some biceps and pull ups, abs and other junk. Probably no gym, but I love it there so maybe (if Gramma is up for watching the sick little GRACIE)
I am off to shower,
Have a relaxing day,
Hey ya...we have just 16 days to go to kick our habits!!

I SO EXCITED about this contest and all the great goals my BuffSisters have posted in the Rally Room.
Hope you got off to a great start yesterday...
Here's day 2's link to content~
Please feel free to comment on the post- questions and input are encouraged!!
I decided on my habit to break and habit to attain and posted them in my private blog... I am committed!!!
So with the excitement of the contest to stoke my workout fire I'm planning for a great day workout wise!!
LEGS are on tap!!
The plan: Workout time NOON
warm up with 10 min of intervals on the r-bike-killer butt bike
Squats paired with calf press
Calf machine (seated)
90x20 (half toes in half toes out) x 3 sets
Smith Squats paired with smith lunges
10 reps at each weight
Dead lifts paired with side lying leg lifts
15 leg lifts each side 4sets
Leg extensions paired with seated leg curls
Then afterward I need to go birthday shopping! the Twins turn 9 on the 9th!
My habits are few... for some odd reason I am not habitual in nature. I wonder if it has to do with the fact I'm a Gemini??? Not that I actually believe in astrology, but the description fits! I'm one way some days and the complete opposite other days! I've never stick to the same routine...not even for how I groom myself daily- no specific order of activities, no set in stone way to do anything! I'm a free spirit trying to live in a habitual world, lol!
The Biggest Best Habit I've forced myself to attain is to workout consistently. I've now done it for 8.5 years! That in itself proves, I AM capable of forming a habit. I can change!!
a few more good habits I've established as an adult include:
- good posture
- positive attitude
- eating my protein
- cutting out most grains and dairy from my diet
For this Contest my goal is to cut out all carbs except those found in fruits and veggies. I'm going to use the carbs I eat to fuel my workouts and nutrify my body-- just enough servings each day to be highly productive in my workouts but not any EXTRA that will keep me fluffy! My weight goal that i set last month is still intact-- I plan to weigh in on March 1st at 125 pounds!
My Stats = (I don't have my measuring tape or bikini for photos with me right now--they are at my "old" house still...I'll do them when I go there)
cycle day- 27
Habit to break- eating carbs that are JUNK! if it's not a fruit or veggie I will not eat it for one of my 4 allowed daily CARB servings!
Habit to attain- a continually clean kitchen...I tend to only clean up when it's overdue...my goal is to keep it clean all day every day-- even if I have to delegate the chore
I'm off to eat an apple and clean my kitchen!!
Let's have a great 21 days!! Thanks for your support in advance- I'll need it!
P.S. Here's the link to today's info if you need it:
February is here!! OMGoodness...where did January goal and how could I have practically failed to keep focus my new year's resolutions-- Time to attack them because there is only 11 months of the year left!
Some new goals I have for February are to get my Master Bedroom/Bath project under way-- so today I met with a contractor and got some great input from him. It's going to be an amazing room!!
Another big happening for February is our contest- Its' going to be short but intense!! All about kicking bad habits and forming new ones-- The experts constantly preach it takes 21 days to form a habit. So let's do it!!
More info here~
And finally, my goal to organize my "office" in February is underway also-- I've been working on organizing my computer files, planning my attack on the actual office space and I'm headed to Best Buy tomorrow in search of a COMPUTER!!
On the fitness front- I've had a couple of GREAT workout days- Yesterday was Legs/Abs and Today was Chest/Tris?Abs and a hard run outside:
Stretching and hip rotations between sets
ABS between sets
Ran 7mins for a cool down around the block
Today's Chest highlights:
Bench- High set 125x7...no spotter, my son is not yet qualified LOL!
tricep push downs
Full extensions sit ups
Then I ran outside up the long hill again 2x's another shorter hill once and did 3 short sprints to finish it off-- I felt better than my last run on Saturday...I think I'm getting in better shape and that my body likes running in the evening way better than in the morning!!
Time to relax!
