6 S's of Success!


I'm here to report that my "Buffing Phase" is going quite nicely this month~ Yay!! I'm on track to be at a good solid 125 for the Warrior Dash race in 3 weeks!!
The past 2 days I've weighed in at 127!!! And the cool thing is I'm at my "ovulation" time too~ NICE!! It's so nice to finally see the scale go down after months of being rather STUCK at 130!!
I attribute my success to a few things:
  1. SPRING TIME!! I have so much energy when it's warmer out- I'm more active and I'm outside so much more
  2. SQUATS!! I am back to doing REAL squats and deadlifts--the smith version just isn't the same!! I'm STOKING my fat furnaces!!
  3. SKIMPING on my CARB intake...I'm finally keeping my carbs under control! Eating less than 4 servings a day and upping my protein intake!
  4. SUPPLEMENTS~ consistentcy with supplements--Multi, Calcium, HT Pills, Fish Oil, Joint, Addrenal, NO2 and I've gone off of Creatine for a bit.
  5. SPINACH, salads and other greens-- I've been eating my greens!
  6. SUPER focus on increasing my AEROBIC fitness-- this helps your body build more mitochondria which helps a person burn fat!
Yesterday I had all intentions of going on a run, but I got sucked into working on the computer all day and then had to get ready to go to town. I hopped into the shower and it dawned on me that I totally gapped out about going for my run! OH Well...I had worked out 4 days in a row, so a day off must have been needed.
A run is on tap for today and then some OUTSIDE work on my farm.
Have a good one!!
Love,
Michelle
