Awesome week.

How have your workouts been? Did you give your workout all your blood, sweat and tears?
I know that I did and they were awesome. During a conference call with all the Buffmother competitors, Michelle made a comment about pushing yourself harder and harder during certain times of the month when you are extra strong.
For women this is the boosting phase.
So this week I increased my weights and even my intensity of my workout. I focused on the muscle/mind connection. Do you connect with your muscles or just go through the motions. Each time focus on what muscle is working and you will see great results.
Have a great week.

Relaxing Wednesday

Today was a nice relaxing day. Started off getting to sleep in and then headed to the gym to do my lats and intervals. Worked my back hard.
I was tired after my workout. So today was just a day to relax and recharge my body. It felt great. I even took a bit of nap something I never get to do.
Tomorrow is super busy. Up at 4am for my ladies at my Fit Camp, straight to the gym for chest and then to work all day long.
Hope you had a great hump day.

This week so far.

So I thought I would share my journey towards my first figure competition.
Monday was my shoulder, bicep, tricep and interval day. I had a great workout. My left shoulder was a bit twingy but I lowered the weight slightly and pushed through. It is fun to have muscles and have people question me all the time about how I have done it. My joy in life is to help others become fit and love helping them.
Even though I have been a long distance runner I am enjoying just doing 20 min HIIT intervals on the treadmill. It is over so quick!
Today was leg day. These legs of mine are pretty tough to get sore. I kill them everytime I do legs. I do get extra hungry on leg days and know my metabolism must really be firing.
Eating clean and drinking lots of water everyday to help me get this body in shape.
Stay strong.

A little bit about me.

Welcome to my blog. I am a 49 (will be 50 in July) year old mom of 3. I have been overweight on and off all my life. My first memory of my weight was when my grandmother took me to get a swimsuit and suggested I get a chubby size. I then lost weight many times only to put it back on. Then one day while surfing the internet I came across I was so intrigued by Michelle and what she had to say about hormonal timing. I contacted her and asked her to help me design a program to lose weight. At that time I was hitting around 216 on the scale give or take a few. I wouldn't weigh at that point. So my wonderful journey had begun in 2006 at age 46 and I have never looked back. I am in the best shape of my life right now.
The funny part was everyone told me I couldn't lose the weight at my age, and I set out to prove them wrong. I am loving being fit and strong. I have completed 3 marathons including qualifying and running Boston. Now I am in the process of doing my first figure competition right after my 50th birthday. So my journey and new adventure begins. I owe my new life and body to Michelle Berger and It truly gave me back my happiness.
