Glitter Pumpkin!!

So Pretty!

There is some orange showing through. But, that orange looking spot is actually the reflection from my pink shirt!! I love my glitter pumpkin!

Got all of the dresser drawers painted with two coats today! Can’t wait to have them back and put together in the bedroom again.

As you can see, I quit trying to not make a mess on my laminate floor. Getting that off will be my next project.

In my last post I said that I want to be a runner. I still do! But, I couldn’t run on Wednesday because my shins were hurting. So, if I’m going to run it’s going to have to be in different shoes or at a different pace or something. I’ll figure it out I guess. But, today, I’m working on some toning stuff:

Arms:

All Over Toning:

Something:

Happy Thursday! My husband has a sleep study tomorrow. Kind of worried and nervous for him!

I Hate Burpees!

Ugh, burpees. Does anyone love burpees? If so, they need to be institutionalized because I think that is the worst cardio move ever invented. Just did these two cardio videos:

Yes, Gangnam style again! Love doing this workout 😉 But, fell on my butt this time trying to do extra high kicks lol…

This is with two guys called The Lean Machines (their youtube site here). I think they will be part of my workouts now too!

Also did sleek and slender abs:

Fine Toning Arms Routine:

AND Lift and Tone Booty Routine:

I had a bad week and needed to get some endorphins going. And, I’m going to Columbia to tailgate this weekend so I know I won’t be working out anything but my drinking muscles until Monday…
Also, got coat 2 on the dressers!! They look good 🙂 Will probably be putting another coat on next week just to be thorough because I can still see a few lines. So, update with pics next week! This is taking forever and I still have the drawers to paint, our two end tables and the dresser mirror! Whew… might be a while before this project is complete. Can’t wait!

The Dressers: One Black Coat

Here are the dressers with one black coat: WHOOOOOO

 

They look good from afar, but you can see the brush strokes:

The next coat will look awesome, though!!

My sister in law and I have been doing a lot of crafting for Halloween decorations and Christmas presents! It’s been so fun! I will update with the Halloween decor (including sparkle pumpkin!!) but not the Christmas presents yet. I have to make sure nobody who’s getting one will see it! One of our Christmas presents for our sisters include some chalkboard paint:

I can’t wait to use it for the first time! We were gonna make some out of the black paint I’m already using on the dressers. But, the tile grout section got overwhelming so we just decided to buy some. (Tile grout is needed to make your own in these instructions).

Also, here’s a couple pictures of Ruby, my child, just because she looks so cute today:

Awww such a beautiful, sweet thing!!

Didn’t workout yesterday, whoops… Even though it’s no excuse, I had a bad day and drank instead! So, exercise tonight – some pop cardio and arms workout!!

Back In Black

Whoooo! Finally painting the dressers black again. My camera is dead or I’d take a picture so you can see! So excited to get them back in the room!! Will post pics later tonight.

So, this weekend I didn’t do much working out. Did do a lot of cleaning because my house needs it BAD. Still have a lot to do but it was productive overall. Also, I watched  VH1s Top 100 Songs of the 2000s. SO Good!! Makes me dance around the house while I clean:) Like this:

LOL every time I see this I laugh.

I did find some target area workouts to tone up! I’ve decided I don’t mind my weight, I just don’t want to be jiggly anymore. Here’s some of them from toneitup.com:

Sleek and Slender Abs:

They’re all on the beach, too! So maybe I’ll go to the beach and do these? Ha, no. How embarrassing would that be?

Spankin Booty Workout:

Fine Tone Arms Workout:

They’ve got videos for all of them on the blog as well. I’m not sure which workout I’ll do tonight yet. Maybe all of them? Probably not. Probably some cardio (Gangnam Style) and arms. I want sexy arms!!
