Real BODY Love: Workouts Week 9

DSC_0092Are we still doing this?

This is the longest I have ever stuck with a workout plan. Ever. Besides when I was in sports in high school and college and I was forced to do stuff every day.

But even then, I was always trying to get out of it. Like when track and soccer season were going at the same time, so my friend Kristen and I would pretend to be at track and “run” to Dairy Queen….

We’d have our little Blizzard and then “run” back to catch the end of soccer practice.

I tell you this story mostly to impress you with how rebellious I once was.

Times have a changed, though. Now, the most rebellious thing I do is, with a quivering voice, sheepishly ask for an extra sucker at the drive through at the bank so not only my kids can have some but I can too.


Anyways, enough about all that.

Here are the workouts for this week.

Is anybody out there!!! Can anyone hear me!!! Is anyone still doing this at all or should we quit and go get some DAIRY QUEEN?

Today’s Workout:

Wednesday’s Workout:

Butt Lift. Did we already do this one?

Friday’s Workout:

Happy week to you guys! We have a guest interview coming later this week that I am SO pumped about. You are going to LOVE it!

Here’s to being really vague!

Newish Updates

Well, well. You again, friend.

I have a few newISH updates here to show ya around here.

As you know, we took that wall out of the kitchen. It USED to look like this.

And the fake tin ceiling looked like this…

So, it all had to go. We are into the open concept thing because I saw a couple HGTV shows that said it was a big deal, so we went for it. Not really knowing if it was the right thing to do or not. Some people I talked to said NO! Some said YES! 

So, we did it, had the ceiling redone and I forced gently prodded Jimmy to do all the floors the same (because Property Brothers said so) and…

We are so glad we did.

Here’s how it all turned out and we are loving it!newish

And here are some newish coasters that I LOVE made from wood things. Trees I suspect.



And this is not so new. Still painting my cabinets! The insides now. 

Takes three coats of that white high gloss paint to cover those dingy insides. Didn’t I start this project four years ago?

To distract people who come over, I got a newish cute lamp to put on the kitchen counter for 10 dollars. Yes!

newish3Not so newish, me trying to do an abstract painting. Again.

This one was extra tricky. It involved dripping some paint on a canvas. Takes a high level of skill, so this is not for the faint of heart.

No, but seriously. I like this and it was SO easy and truly anyone can do it. I’ll show you the finished look when the look of that dining room is finished. 

Anyways, progress is slow, but I am loving the new set up. I’m going to be making a bigger DIY kitchen island that fits that space a little better here soon.

So, get ready! 

It’s sure to happen…

And until then, I’m gonna take a break and look at our room with no walls.
newish Happy weekend!
