Active at any Age

This past Sunday I went to my husbands baseball game and I was amazed to see these men, ranging from 25 to 55, playing baseball and staying active. It was great to see all these guys get out of the house and play sports. Many men, especially  older men, start to get lazy as they get older and would rather sit on a couch and drink all day. I was happy to see my husband and all his teammates have that competitive spirit and really put their all into the game. In the end they lost the game, but they didn’t let their spirits down and they amped each other up for the next game. There are so many sports that adults can get into, but they just need to look online and find local sports clubs around them. Since I am moving to VA soon I started going onto Meetup.com to find different outdoor activities

Back in the Game

Can I just say it is always great when you fall and you are able to pick yourself back up again. I have been reading through some of my favorite health blogs and it seems these past few months have been rough for ALL of us. But the true test of ones dedication to their healthy lifestyle is being able to pick themselves back up again.

Believe me it is rough. The past month has been a struggle, trying getting myself back in my old routine of daily exercise and consistent healthy eating habits. Around day two and three I would just give up and feel sorry for myself. Thankfully, this past week I have been able to pick myself back up again and get myself going. I tried to think about what helped me get back in the game and a few things came to mind.

See Below:

1.Reading health blogs: Reading other blogs helped me realte to other women.

2. Observing how my body feels: When I start feeling groggy and sleepy all the time I know it has to do with the quality of food that I am eating and me not going to the gym.

3. Clothes: When my pants start to feel a little tight that is usually when I pick myself up real quick.

4. Sadness: When I start to feel sad and almost depressed I know alot of it has to do with my Health. Being healthy for me is meditative, I feel a sense of balance.

These are just a few things, but I am sure there is more.

So those who are feeling down and out, find what works for you and make sure you write down and place it somewhere where you can see it everyday for constant motivation.

Yummy Breakfast Sandwich from Subway!

So I started a new weight
routine, pretty much same exercises but focuing on 2-3 body part 3x
a week.

The breakdown will be as
follows:

Day1: Chest
Back Abdominals Day 2: Cardio Day 3: Quads Hamstrings Calves Day 4:
Cardio Day 5: Shoulders Biceps Triceps Day 6: Cardio Day 7:
Rest

I was getting
board so I needed to change it up a bit. Plus, I will be able
to focus more on each body part.

Morning work out Below:

Just so people can get an
idea, this is how I stay on top of having a healthy lifestyle,
being well stocked with snacks and other goodies. This is my snack
drawer at work, which needs to be re filled with some
fuel.

I guess I am going
backwards but this is my fabulous lunch. Homemade chicken noodle
soup from the mommy and a spinach salad, with a side of Special K
crackers.

Breakfast was
delicioso! I had one of those new Subway Breakfast sandwiches and
they were so yummy! I mean, I could have made it at home and
probably made it better, but it hit the spot after that early
workout!

stashed when at work?











November Readings….

Ohh…how I love Magazine time. Magazines are the inspiration I need to give me that little push every month when I start to go into a slump. There are great articles, new routines, nutrition tips, and inspiring stories to get you back on track. I get a variety of them some, which many times tend to say the same thing. However, each magazine has its own charm and thats why I buy them.

What’s your favorite Health Magazine?

445am…and were off!

My daily routine starts with me usually waking up at 5am, 445am on a good day. For some reason I was so psyched to work out today. Todays plan was 30 min cardio(stairmaster) and biceps, triceps, quads, hamstrings, and glutes. Ahhhhh… life is good after the gym and I have some pics of my routine and some update pics (there not that gr8, I hate taking pics of myself at the gym…lol)





I chose to do these exercises as supersets, doing two exercises per set, I luv it!!!!

NOW for the update pics:

Me scared that some random person would

walk in and see me taking pics…LOL!

The Triceps are getting there…

My guns are coming in nicely

 

The area of hell…I just have to remember patience is virtue

I didnt get to take a good pic of my leg, but I will get a pic up soon.

Mind you… My goal is not to get BUFF….no way! I just want to be a lean, mean, ass kicking machine 🙂
