Everyday I'm Hustlin'

Who the eff you think you effin with, I'm the effin boss...I cut em wide I cut em long I cut em fat...WHAT!

Wait ... what? Geezus you are right that is too much on a Tuesday morning at 9am. *yawn* I realize I haven't written a post in almost 2 weeks but seriously give a sista a break I'M BUSY!  My buddies Liz and Jason (and myself) decided last minute we were going to stalk follow our favorite soccer team to Colorado for about 24 hours and cheer them on.  It was so fun and amazing!!!  The girls played so great, we were loud and cheering our freaking faces off, and they tied!!!  YAY!  They played one of the best teams in the conference and SUU is the only team who walked away from Northern Colorado with something other than a loss...you know that's right what what in the butt we are amaze! Photo documentation below thankyouverymucho.

We are currently at a countdown to the Halloween Hustle 5k...T minus 5 days *gasp*.  Holy Helen.  I can't decide which part I am concentrating on more...my outfit or not walking at all.  I mean lets be honest it's not like I'm going to win so I might as well have a fun costume.  Am I right or am I right?  Mi amigo Liz and I are making our outfits.  We are pretty bored housewives so it makes sense.  We were also thinking of giving cupcake creations/decorating a whirl...I'm 150% positive that will be a post all by itself. Tutus for costume in construction.

My motivation is slipping away.  And actually I am unsure that it is slipping away but more like I forget how important it is to me to lose weight.  Everyday is a battle...(B7...MISS!!! Did anyone get that reference? No...okay we will continue)  I have decided along with my daily blog updates that keep me motivated I am going to make a word/picture collage to help my process.  Today i watched a really cool video on the Thunderbird Soccer blog (click here) and I was inspired.  Goosebumps and everything!!!  I need to remember why I am trying and why I need to continue to work hard.  I want to be better.  Here is why...my family is amazing!  I want to be better for them.

We are also in countdown central for wrapping up soccer season.  I cannot even believe it. 1 game left!! We had a BBQ Friday after the game, hosted dinner Saturday for parents and players (totally forgot to snap any photos because I WAS BUSY), and coming up Senior dinner, Senior Day, end of season banquet, and who knows what else will need to happen in the next 2 weeks.  Just when we thought we were going to get a break guess again...full court press on recruiting, ODP games, camps, clinics, traveling nonstop...I'm already tired thinking about it...HOWEVER it will leave my schedule wide open to stay on track for the skinny train (toot toot).

I'm also going to start reading Bossypants by Tina Fey to channel my girl power a little.  I'm applying for a new job that I really really really want!  

If you follow me on twitter (@treygay) or instagram(treygay11) it's possible you have already peeped these pics.

Have a Happy Tuesday!!!

Laters baby....

Random and a little stalker-esque

Here we are October 5th...my workout today is supposed to be cross train for 30 minutes...easy enough and a 4 mile run tomorrow morning.  Yowza!!  Becky and I have family coming in town all weekend and my usual M.O. is to wake up, play with kids, make pancakes or something fatty similar, relax and have fun.  This time...my workouts are a priority:)  YAY!!!

Before I move on and ramble any further let me just tell you about my run on day numero tres (that is number 3 for those of you who are not as exceptionally bilingual as yours truly...moi...oh snaptastic maybe I'm trilingual)  By now everyone in the world has probably heard of CrossFit (click here)...they have an annual competition where teams and individuals from ALL OVER EARTH compete to see who is "The Fittest in the World".  It's totally cray cray.  Last year Becky and I went to watch the regional competition that leads up to the "actual" show down.  **rando thought: I love doing Crossfit and it is way way fun and challenging, but I am nowhere even close to being in the same universe as some of these people. They are actually SUPER HUMAN LEGITZVILLE CITIZENS**  Okay back to the point.  So we have friends in Salt Lake City who own Ute CrossFit (click here) Bobbie and Tommy are so hard core that I kinda want their autographs.  Just Sayin.  Ute had a team (of 6 people) that went to the Crossfit Games....and these fools WON the show.  Not only did they win, they owned it, slapped it's ass, tied it up and killed it.

I watched it on tv while eating candy ... fuck I'm lazy.

Here is Hacks Packs.  The fittest in THE WORLD!!!

Hacks Pack...what do you even say about their awesomeness?  They are regular people with a lot of shit to do...on top of already being busy having lives, families, jobs etc they also made time to train.  So what's my excuse?  I just want to lose a few ell bees.  These folks right here...I mean I am lits with out words.  They are awe-inspiring.  You get the mother effing point, right?

Well 2 of the people on this team live here in Cedar City (yep we have famous people up in hurra)  1- Michael Cazayoux: strength trainer and bad ass mofo.  I was so pumped the day I got to meet him.  He probably thought I was a fucking hot mess.  Meh who cares right?  I am a hot mess:)  and 2- Erin Bennion: Nurse, mom of 3, wife.  Damn.  I haven't met her yet but I can't wait to meet her.

Now insert stalker-esque situation (I swear I'm not really a stalker...I just am really good at research) I know what car Erin drives because she has a Ute Crossfit sticker on the window **insert stalker music **

Here is the story (owie I am a cramp in my hand from typing!!!) I went running on my 3 miler and I was going on my usual beginning route.  All of a sudden I see a car donning the amazeballs Ute Crossfit sticker.  A second before I saw the sticker I thought "self we are fucking tired let's walk" BUT then the sticker showed up.  It was like a sign....from Bobbie or Tommy, or Michael, or T-Rich, or Erin, or Adrian, or Mary, or Booty, or Becky, or Mandi, or Liv...I mean lets be serious my list of awesome Ute Crossfitter friends (and not yet friends) is long and distinguished (like my Johnson...Top Gun anyone?).  As I was running....tired....wanting to stop...gasping for air(only bc I'm a heavy hippo) I suddenly got a power surge.  A surge to not stop and to just keep going.  Mostly because I didn't want one of the WORLD'S FITTEST PEOPLE to see me walking (even though she doesn't know me and probably wouldn't have noticed) but on the off chance she looked in her rear view mirror and saw a short chubby girl running she would have maybe said "good for her".

So I ran. And I finished. I only stopped 1 time!  That is such a big deal for me, and at one point I was running I couldn't believe I hadn't walked yet.  I went 1.32 miles before I walked, and when my watch said 1.37 I started running again. 

That is my direct motivation from a seriously indirect source. And maybe one day I will get to do a Crossfit workout with 1 or 2 of the World's Fittest.

What makes you stronger?

31 days of October...why not

I simply have nothing else to do that is important.  So here we are in October and yesterday was Day 1!  I have decided that I am throwing the gauntlet down on this month and I'm going get myself well acquainted with my willpower.

People do challenges all the time and it seems to work for some people (please let me be some people).  I have the long"er" term goals (like the halfie with my bestie in March, bathing suit by Christmas, the ability to wear cute snow clothes) and I am constantly looking for motivation and I am constantly falling off the wagon for whatever reason (mostly when I go out of town and eat like a 400lb man).  Nevertheless I am going to prove to myself that I can smack October's ass and own it Christian Grey style.

***sidebar*** I am surrounded by awesome people and awesome talent...some of this talent is in the form of 18-22 year old college soccer players (whom I adore as if they were my little sisters) and I think they are reaching this mental block of sorts...struggling to win, struggling to want to win, struggling to be better, struggling to believe in themselves.  So maybe if I can do something hard and win...they will see that they can do anything.  Meh whatever I'm probably smoking the reefer making shit up and they are probably fine.  I LOVE over analyzing situations.  ANYWHOOOOO
Day 1 ... not so much my bitch but more of a friend I drink tea with

Here is my Plan:
Workout for 31 days straight
On every 7th day rock hard and do a 2-a-day
Only be a booze hound 2 days a week instead of 7 days a week
Craft up some halloween shit
Watch a scary movie during the day
Put eye cream on my wrinkles every night
(its a start)

Peace and grease respect concrete
