I can't believe it is Sunday already and the work week starts again bright and early tomorrow. I looks like it might be another crazy week but that does not worry me one bit. I will take each and everything that comes my way and keep pushing forward.

I woke up early ready to get my lift on. My training sessions have definitely stepped up and keep challenging me. I love it!

I hit a new record on my deadlifts today. This is by far my best lift and the numbers on the pounds just keep getting higher and higher.

One thing the pastor said in church today was...

"In His hands you are unstoppable and in your hands you are unmovable."

Remember, you can always do more than what you think you can and nothing can hold you back from reaching your goal. Don't hesitate to push yourself in the gym as well as with your faith.

Zach and I have really enjoyed Eastside Baptist Church the past 2 weekends. We are excited and looking forward to next week already.


thanksgiving chest day

Thanksgiving morning, I woke up bright and early and headed out to the garage. I wanted to get it done so I would not have to worry about it later.


I finished up with...

DB Bench
25lb 5x15

One Arm Row
25lb 5x15

Band Push Downs

Band Pull Aparts

After working out, Zach and I headed to Greenwood for lunch and then to Big Creek for supper. We made the long drive home and went straight to bed so we could get up on our normal time for work on Friday.

I am so thankful to have the body to lift heavy and to keep pushing my body to the next level.

legs, legs and more legs

On Wednesday, I had a very long day at work. I had about a 2 hour break so instead of coming home I decided to stay and get my workout done. It was leg day. Not many people like working legs mainly because who likes to be in pain every time you sit down or walk up stairs??? ME!!!!

I started my workout with my Squats.


Check it out!

Finished my workout with..

75lb 4x10

Elevated/Front loaded Reverse Lunges
25lb 4x10 each leg

Walking Lunges
25lb (Overhead) 3x10

My legs have definitely been feeling this workout. I was so pumped from my squats that I was killing it and pushing myself even harder!

military press... video

What a busy, busy, busy Monday this has been. I am so thankful for it though. I had to teach a few classes today and train around 10 people. I love staying busy! It definitely helps the day go by so quick.

We had our Thanksgiving feast today at work. I am so proud of myself. I only had one, yelp that's right, ONE slice of turkey. I packed all my meals and stuck to my plan. Saying no to food lately has been a real challenge so it felt good not leaving work stuffed and miserable. I left and headed to the crib to get my workout in.

1 Thanksgiving down, 3 to go!

Anywho... On to the training.

Today was Military day. Arms are completely jello and I will more than likely be feeling this tomorrow.


Military Press
45lb 5x5
55lb 1x15

I am really wanting to do body weight pullups but completely stink at them. Zach got his band out and gave me some pointers and was able to do a few!

Bicep Curls
25lb 5x15

DB Shoulder Press
15lb 5x15

Well... I can't get the darn thing to upload to youtube... as soon as I do I will post it. I really want you to see my pullups!!!

Have a happy Wednesday!

Squats are today!

Sunday, November 20, 2011!

Zach and I bought oursleves a new power rack with all the birthday money we received. We are so blessed to have such wonderful family members who love us.

Yesterday, while I was at work ALL day, Zach decided to tackle the power rack by himself. He did an awesome job! I was so excited when I got home. It looks great... Check out our home gym...

This morning I was very anxious to get a workout in. I have been training 4 days a week. I usually rest on Saturday and Sunday's but since this week is going to be crazy with 4 Thanksgivings to go to, I had to come up up different days to make sure I get them all in.

Front Squats:
45lb 3x20

Hamstring Curls:
25lb 5x10

Straight Leg Lifts:

Calf Raises:

Hope you enjoy the video..

way too long...

I can't believe its been several weeks since my last blog. I have been super busy at work and by the time I get home I usually get straight in the bed. Maybe even falling asleep between 430pm-530pm. Getting up every morning at 3am, teaching several classes a day and doing my own workouts definitely wears me out. But I love it. So much has happened since my last blog.

Zach and I celebrated our 2nd anniversary! We went to Parlor Market for dinner then drove to the Fresh Market in Ridgeland and stood at the bakery section for about 15mins trying to pick out our dessert. It was absolutely a wonderful night and I am so blessed to have this wonderful man in my life.

Halloween has come and gone. I love Halloween. We dressed up at work and partied all day long. We had an Hawaiian theme this year. Emilee made me an awesome skirt and everyone went all out. It was a blast.

We booked our family trip for 2012! Cruise here we come. We will leave out on a Thursday and return on a Monday. Now only 6 months to wait!

Zach's sister, Corie, is getting married in 3 weeks. Last week I hosted her a Spa/Christmas shower at the Alluvian Spa in Greenwood. If you ever need a place to host a shower... do it there. Their workers were unbelievable!! They were so helpful and just made it a wonderful over all experience.

I can't believe this is Thanksgiving week. Were has the time gone. Zach is in the kitchen right now cooking our turkey for our work party tomorrow. We love to party at the hplex!

I am back and refuse to go a few weeks with out blogging again.
