Am I a Hermit??

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

I seriously am worried I'm turning into a HERMIT. I don't want to leave my house! I know my hormones tend to make me feel this way monthly, but I am seriously feeling more and more like I don't want to venture away from my "Sanctuary" of a ranch. We moved out to the country about a year ago and I'm totally diggin it! I've learned so much about myself this past year...I love doing so many things that I never knew existed prior to this past year.

I love driving a tractor
I love planting fields
I love brush hogging
I love building big fires
I love running hills on a dirt trail
I love hunting varmits
I love shooting guns (i got a hand gun and a shot gun!)
I love making mulch (our anniversary present was a small mulcher)
I love cutting down weeds and sumac!! it makes me feel powerful!
I love working out at home! (I never thought that'd be the case)
I enjoy the sunrise (Before this year, I barely ever got up to see one, lol)

...I could keep going but the point is that life is so amazing-- a constant adventure and discovery!!

So far our 28days of Chistmas is a success!! tons of posting tons of fun #workoutproof pictures~ tons of great women who I'm so excited to get to know better!!

I got in my workout last evening at about 6pm... here's my proof pic~ I'm sore today!!

Today I hope to get my workout done earlier. Upper body and a run is on tap!!

Have a GREAT day #2!!

    Michelle this is the 1st time I am reading a blog that you wrote...1st of all you look awesome! 2nd I hope you are kidding about being a hermit! You sound like you do more in 1 day than some people do in a lifetime!! I think it is so awesome that you are enjoying your life on your ranch!! I think sometimes we over think what we do and how we live instead of just enjoying what we are doing!! I think I should come to the ranch and let you kick my butt into gear!! Any need for an ER nurse on the ranch! LOL...keep up the great work!!

    After seeing how good you look, I think I will take up farming too...LOL I don't think you really need to exercise with the type of life you lead. It is enough exercise for you and more than most of us could ever do. Have a blessed Christmas and Happy New Year. emoticon

Hi!! I'm in a total time warp this week...Holidays do that!!

I'm so excited on many fronts~ We are getting geared up for our next contest...Hope you got the email and signed up, DETAILS are HERE. The sign up for the sock exchange ended yesterday: We had 68 ladies sign up to participate, It's gonna be some crazy wild fun to see all of those sock pictures!!

I got in a workout today at the gym with my mma friend Lylna~ we worked our backs, shoulders and did squats-- then to finish up she put me through some boxing drills~ it was fun!!

Tennis was canceled for this week...due to the holidays.

Today I want to say thank you to sports...Thank you SPORTS for teaching me tons of PHYSICAL Skills, but more so mental skills like : Determination, Hard work, Consistency, Team Work, Encouragement and the Ability to KEEP Pressing on knowing that PRACTICE makes PERFECT.

Well, time for some relaxation!!

HI all~ Well....I've had a busy but GREAT past few days!! Yesterday I took of of workouts-- not on purpose, but that's what happened. Today I have tennis drills and I'm so excited!! It was a blast last week :)
I'd also LOVE to get in a leg workout and/run...I probabaly shouldn't do all of it though because I'll be DEAD if I do. It's been fun recently to "feel" like working out . I had a long spell there where I didn't and it's hard to have to "make yourself" do it every time.
Today's THANK YOU! ~
I am thankful for every amazing female hero of mine-- they are the women who forge ahead to impact the world, leading by example and have a no excuses attitude. I have many such heros, but today I want to say THANK YOU to 3 specific ladies: Joyce Meyer (, Laurie Beth Jones ( and Heidi Baker ( May God continue to
use you in the lives of women, like He's used you to impact my life!! I have learned so much through your tenacity, example of hard work and through your evident FAITH. Thanks for spreading your LOVE and Light!! Thank YOU!!
"I never understood why people want to do big things...
Just do little things, with great Love."
-- Mama Heidi Baker

Keep being thankful and pressing into the positives in life!!




Thank You Minivan!

This weekend was a good one~

Saturday morning my hubby shot a was the first on our land and very sentimental!! We brought it in to the meat processor and it'll be some good eating~

That afternoon I hit the trail for a run, It was crazy warm for November 11th. It was also VERY WINDY, but nice where I ran as it's sheltered from the wind.

After the run Travis and I climbed up on the roof of our house and enjoyed the evening looking for deer~ Here's my view:

Saturday's thank you: Thank you God for my beautiful land!!

Yesterday was GLOOMY and rainy all day!! I was so thankful that it was NOT SNOW(Sunday's thank you)!!

I got in a decent leg workout~ and this MOVE, No clue what exercise I'm doing?? LOL-- It must have wore me out cuz I crashed while watching sunday night football.

Today is sunny again but started off really cold!! Gracie has an impacted tooth so we visited the otho who recommended surgery and braces for the little lady. It's going to mean a lot of extra driving over then next 9 months! Today, my thank you is to my mini-van:

Dear Mini-Van, You are black and dirty, but I love you~ Thanks for getting our whole family (+1 at times) to where we need to go. I appreciate your storage space and smooth ride. Although, I hate your unstylish appearance and lack of EDGINESS~ and I'd trade you for a HUMMER in a heartbeat, You are what I got for now~ I do love you and I THANK YOU!!

Time for me to get rollin' my workout can't wait any longer!!

Have a super Monday!!


Thankful for USA

Tuesday, November 06, 2012

I am thankful for the USA!! I love the USA!! Because of our freedom, our culture, our awesome country, our diversity and most of all because of our BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY!! We are allowed free enterprise in this country and I've been able to

capitalize on it!! I now am the PRESIDENT of 2 companies that I started, I am living the AMERICAN DREAM!!! I have the freedom to work when I want, where I want and workout any time of the day!! I am so thankful for that!! I am proud to be a citizen of the USA and to be an Entrepreneur!

What are you thankful for today?? Join in our Thankful November month challenge =

Yesterday, I got in my first leg workout of the week-
Deadlifts- 4 sets @ 95#
Some practice on olympic lifts- snatch, cleans, push presses
Squats- 2 sets warm up; 2 sets @135-- I am weak on these recently- I think NO CARBS has a big effect, plus I've been inconsistent
Leg Extensions
Leg Curls
Dummbell Squats- I did 2 sets with 35's
1 sets stationary BB lunges
And abs-- I did about 4 sets total

Today, I'll be heading out to vote in a bit and then off to my tennis lesson!! whoohoo!! I may get in a run after tennis may be really easy to just do it then rather than running on the dirt road here :)

Have a happy election day!!
