Everything is going quite perfectly! This morning started with Leg Day. And I was hurting before it was through, but good hurting, a hurting I haven’t felt in a long while. Leg Day consisted of Kettlebell Squats, Walking Kettlebell Lunges, Stiff Legged Dead Lift, Plié Kettlebell Squats, Kettlebell Calf Raises, Seated Kettlebell Calf Raises and max effort Kettlebell Swings. Finished up, got the girls around and out the door and hopped … Continue reading Right On Track
Feeling pretty dang good on day 2, and crazy enough feeling sore! Both my back and biceps!!! Today’s workout was chest, triceps and abs… Whoa. Serious business. My arms were exhausted by the time I finished up. Oddly enough no cardio today… I struggled with this but stuck with the plan… Cardio, four days a week, lifting five. My eating went a little better today, … Continue reading Today, I am Serious Business.
Wow… Day one went perfectly as planned… Other than I feel like I have eaten non-stop all day long… This is the breakdown of my day… 5am: Alarm goes off, I can here my coffee brewing in the kitchen, and make it out of bed. Obstacle #1 tackled. 🙂 So I enjoy my cup of coffee with 1/4c of almond milk. Heavenly. 5:15am: Start my … Continue reading 12 Week Challenge – Day 1 – Success
Well this is giving to prove to be a lot of work!!! Sheesh. After an hour of meal prep, got my 10am snack, my lunch and my 3pm snack prepped for tomorrow… That doesn’t include breakfast, dinner or my 7pm snack… Holy food. But did get everything figured out, which turned out to be a lot of figuring… And my workout schedule planned for tomorrow … Continue reading Fighter Diet Day One Eve!
This morning I recieved 9 e-books from Pauline Nordin at Fighter Diet. I am so excited about this challenge for a couple of reasons. 1. I do not do well without very clear goals and a very clear plan. Both of those things are totally in place.2. I need something that focuses on cardio (which I love, clearly running is key for me).3. And also focuses … Continue reading Twelve Week Challenge
Well, my blood work shows, once again, Borderline Anemic… Being low on iron, makes my feel low at life. Low on energy, low on sleep, my mood is less than cheerful… Thankfully, I’ll be getting an iron taken care of this week, hopefully by Friday and I can successfully get my dragging ass back in gear… And feeling like this: Continue reading Running Low on Iron
Swimming is going quite well, I felt really good last night at the pool, my breathing just seems to be improving every time I go, and I don’t feel like I look like drowning ape anymore. Got home yesterday afternoon and talked the girls into a five mile bike ride, and they agreed with an ice cream bribe. 🙂 It was really gorgeous out. We … Continue reading Sticking to the plan…
Today I was notified that I received another running sponsorship. I am really excited about this, as it is a really cool product! Road ID! Check them out! So my mom bought me my first Road ID while living in a very small logging town when I did the majority of my running on back roads, my mom was just sure that I would be hit … Continue reading Road ID Sponsorship & Another Successful Day!!!!
I’ve recently been reading a little about this… And the benefits of being at race weight, the increase in speed, better endurance, etc. I am about 8# off of my ideal race weight with three weeks from yesterday until my “make-up marathon”, as I will be calling this tiny local marathon. 🙂 The plan… I am a planner, and this works very, very effectively for me. My … Continue reading Race Weight
Happy to report my swimming is coming along. Had a great swim workout at the pool tonight. My breathing felt good, my strokes more even, and overall much smoother. It was a hectic day at work, and I got real stress relief tonight at the pool for the first time. 20 lengths of the pool, which is the distance of the sprint triathlon, so guess … Continue reading Swimming is Coming Along 🙂
