Things That Make Me Say Yeay + Insanity Update

Friday, August 24, 2012

Ronin meeting Sophie the Giraffe. The best little toy/teether.

Plum colored skinnies and a floral scarf. Two things that I can not wait to wear more of once fall is here.

A glass of wine and a little reading material.

Making skinny spaghetti for dinner

A hummingbird pen, which makes writing to do lists and notes just a little bit more fun.

On a side note: For those of you who wanted an Insanity update...I can barely get through an entire workout without cheating at least a dozen times. It is SO tough. I am completely drenched by the end of it and I may or may not want to puke. They have you do this fit test in the very beginning and according to my results I am not fit ha! Who can really do a million pushups or jumping leap frog suicide squats (something like that) in a minute? Not me. Secondly, with all the jumping and bouncing around I need to invest in a more supportive sports bra. Holy bouncy boobies. And on that note... Have a wonderful weekend!

Girl, you crack me up! I want all of these! {I'm sure I'd find use for the teether eventually.} Love those skinnies and scarf! Happy weekend!!!

Don't be discouraged by Insanity! I had been working out regularly for 4 months+ straight and it was was killer for me as well!

As the days and weeks go on you get better and stronger. Just try to do your personal best even if you can't keep up with the video. I am in the second week of my second month now and it is still tough, but I have seen huge improvements and I'm sure you will too :)

Mariana said...

Pretty things!! Love them all. :)
Have a great weekend!!

Ugh I had the SAME problem when I started doing it 4 weeks PP.. I could hardly even jump I felt like shit! But within 3 weeks I had lost 12lbs and was already feeling a LOT tougher. I'm starting it again on Monday since I didnt finish it.

Lindsay said...

Alright, you have me convinced. Starting Insanity on Monday!

Leah said...

i had that teether for my babe too!! love giraffes. and that scarf and those skinnies are an awesome color...i love colored denim!! thats how i felt the first week of p90x. like i wanted to barf and was drenched in so much sweat afterwards. it will get better i promise!!

Lauren said...

ha! When I started doing Zumba a qualty sports bra was a must! They were shaking all over the place, and not in a good way!

J and A said...

Love those skinnies and scarf! Great combo. I did Insanity a couple years back now and you are right girl, it's tough and I definitely wore 2 sports bras! But Shawn T isn't bad to look at! :)

Briana said...

Alice loves her Sophie and is, in fact, chewing it right now as she sits in my lap. Love the hummingbird pen!

Julia said...

Haha, the holy bouncing boobies made me laugh!
Don't get frustrated, it will be fun when you start so see or feel the results :)
And the colour of the skinnies is just wonderful for fall! Good choice!

Have a nice weekend!

Little Ronin is just the cutest!What a doll.

I've wanted to try the Insanity workout but was too scared that it would defeat me-ha. Keep up the good work and let us know your results.

Krysta said...

Insanity seems too intense for me. I more of a walker/hiker/yoga/barre class kind of girl. :)

Brianna said...

Those plum skinnies... I DIE. I need those NOW. SOOO perfect for fall (:
Your little Ronin is just the cutest!! Hope you have a great weekend (:

Felicia said...

Haha! Holy bouncy boobies... Haha! I swear doing a minute of jumping jacks is not only hard on the boobies and heart rate but on the bladder!! Go mama Go!!!

Natalie said...

Hahaha bouncy boobies! I did insanity for a whole week. It was sooo hard! And I had to literally hold my ladies during some of the exercises!!! I ended up wearing two sports bras. I really need to get back into it. I have a half marathon I'm training for now though. Better than nothing!

Jamie said...

I'm doing insanity right now and feel your pain! I just got to the second level of workouts (the max ones) and feel like I'm starting all over gain. I always workout fully clothed, but this is one of those workouts that I only wear shorts and a good sports bra with, so I'm alone in my house. Keep pushing yourself, you're doing great!!

Mindy said...

LOL!

hilljean said...

Love the pictures! I've been trying to do Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred and it's the same thing--all these jumping jacks and bouncing on your toes. She says there is no substitute for a real jumping jack, but I don't believe she's ever had a child. Not only do the boobs go all over the place, but I feel like I'm gonna pee my pants the entire time! Ugh. Glad to hear that you cheat through the exercise as well :)

Erin McFarland said...

"holy bouncy boobies" lol!!! totally! if you find a sports bra that does the job right, please post in one of your "yeay" posts...I need one!! :)

Alexa said...

HA. You are killing me. Too funny. And that Sophie man is she a hit with the babes!

Marie-Eve said...

That Sophie the Giraffe is a life saver ! It's the best baby toy ever, no wonder it's that expensive !!! My son loved it !

Katie said...

we used to sell Sophie the Giraffe at the store I worked at and we couldn't keep it in stock! Anyone with a child should own one!!! They're really not expensive. Esp because they're non toxic, use food color paint and are so safe for babies. Love them!!!! www.losethecushion.com

Mrs. Easton said...

New to your blog. Expecting a little girl in Oct and the Giraffe is on my must have list!

Anna @ IHOD said...

Insanity is just that....but wow is it a great workout! I need to start doing that again!

Jennifer @ Delightfully Noted said...

Okay I think I need me some plum skinnies now. Where did you score those at?

Danielle said...

Also, I picked up plum skinnies over the weekend. I wouldn't have normally picked them up, but after trying them on I knew I must have them! Thanks for the inspiration :D
