I did get this started, but found it didn't quite fit right. Going to save it for once I lose some more baby weight, then think I will love it. I did cut the arm holes a bit longer as well as the neck. This girl must be around a size 6 (I'm not!). I also cut slits up both sides on the legs as I felt like I couldn't walk properly.
She also dyed her fabric as it was white to begin with. My fabric had a print on it. Hopefully soon it will look lots better and I can post a photo! (Still doing as much as I can of Insanity!)
Wait till you see what I do for next week! Its my own original pin for Pinterest!! Yea me!
Plus I am now a Consultant for Jamberry Nails!!
I'll be posting more info soon! But it is Buy 3 get 1 Free!! Over 150 nail shields available! 1 sheet will do approximately 2 hands and 2 feet worth of nails! No chipping, and they even help make your nails stronger!
Goals...what can I say, I hate to set goals, but I'm really needing to and get them accomplished!
Its not that I don't like to set goals, it just seems they never get marked off the list. I have the best intentions of getting them done, then they just never happen.
For instance, I had a new baby 2 months ago, and this excess weight I have carried for the last 3 years (as I have a 2 year old as well) is driving me nuts!! No I have no ambition to be super skinny or anything, but some nice muscle tone and definition would be nice. Before I got pregnant with my 2 year old, I was getting there, then my body just went nuts and I get huge when pregnant.
I ordered Insanity and tried to work out after 3 weeks of having Elexx. Not a good idea. Kinda slipped my mind I have a few slipped disks in my lower back. Hurt for almost a month, and some days, I couldn't hardly walk! Talk about awful, and there isn't much that you can do except rest and hot/cold compresses.
Finally started to feel better and decided to do one of the Zumba CD's that I have.
I got about 3/4 thru it before I had to quit, but decided it was kinda boring (when I had once really liked it). So tried it again and let me tell you the first 10 minute warm up will have you dripping in sweat!
I have done the first video twice and the cardo once. I know I am not in order that they say, but I just don't want to chance doing pylometrics yet. When it comes up instead of jumping I just pull one leg up as high as I can get it. Figure I'm still working out and something is better than nothing.
Haven't got all the way thru them without stopping, but don't feel too bad, as the other people in the videos have some great bodies, but they even have a heck of a time keeping up and take brakes! (you can tell the cardio queens though!)
I have been doing them every other day until 4 days ago, and haven't done anything since, so today, back on the Insanity roller coaster! But I do have to say I felt great and can tell the difference not doing it for a few days (crazy, as I NEVER thought I would say that!)
So today I am hoping to work on my goal poster that I had started. Have a great and hopefully cool weekend!
Since tonight is the premier of Project Runway, I have challenged myself to do some kind of piece that is my take on the weeks challenge. I love to work with all different types of mediums and am currently loving exploring polymer clay! So bring it on Project Runway! I can't wait to expand my range of skills and looking forward to what I can make!
Here are some of the bangle bracelets I have just recently made. They are bright and vibrant and just plain fun! Had several compliments on the trio I wore out today. I wore the two bottom ones and in the first photo, the black one, second to the bottom on the right side. Fun, Fun!!

in 15-second intervals til melted, stirring after each interval. Stir
