. . . for Lauren and Lauren: for your entertainment

for your entertainment

top: loft   pants: gap (recent)  boots: target   scarf: ? 

I'm pretty certain that having someone watch me do a workout video would fall on a list of embarrassing things.  Even though I do have to say that once in awhile I get really into a video and start thinking that I'd be a good candidate for being on the work out video myself. 

However, I'm quickly reminded of the time I did zumba and was convinced that I was awesome at it.  All until I did the moves in front of Chris and then in front of the mirror and so quickly realized that I was pretty much making a fool out of myself.  

But I believe I have found something even more embarrassing and that would be having someone watch me do a workout video while entertaining Addilyn.  Picture doing punches, lunges and jumping jacks while singing, clapping and dangling toys in front of a baby.  Plus moving her from the floor to the jumper and back a few times.  Oh and throw in using her instead of a weight a time or two.  

All in twenty so minutes. I figure it's kind of like getting a double workout so I guess it's a win win. 

On a side note I recently bought these pants from the Gap for less than $8 and I love them. Especially this zipper on the back: 


Hope you're having a good start to the week!

So cute! I do not let anyone watch me work out, which is why I do it at home instead of at the gym! But, I guess as long as it's working, it doesn't have to be pretty :)

I feel the same way which is why I don't go to work out group classes at the gym. I know I look like a fool and can't keep the beat when it is a class to music. Using Addy during your work out is a win/win!

I love that top and scarf!

I am the same way about working out. I don't even want Jarrod watching me.

Ha! I can totally see myself using the baby instead of a hand weight. Love it!

I love the scarf! I was moving Brighton from the swing too the floor and back during my workout. It was entertaining for everyone but me.

Such cute pants! Loving the scarf too! And I'm pretty sure I make a fool out of myself in group exercise classes too. That's why I'll stick with running. :)

I love Zumba and you know what I love more... Tge fact that she doesn't have mirrors in the class, although I would burn more calories laughing, but let's face it I do that already at the thought of myself and on top of that I secretly laugh at other people!! Lol!!

Haha you crack me up! I feel the same way when I am doing a workout video thinking I should be in the background killing it. And then my husband walks by and gives me a look like I've gone batty. I think I get way to into it!

TheTinyHeart said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Haha, this is why I'm not a fan of group exercise classes! I'd rather do it in the comfort of my own home where no one else is watching :)

haha i always think i have down the moes but i know in reality i don't. and using addilyn as a weight is perfect!

Autumn said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I Zumba and I know I look ridiculous! Laughing burns calories, too, so we all get a double workout! And working out at home with kids is... challenging! I can't even sit on the floor to stretch without someone climbing on me, expecting me to turn them into an airplane!

Wao, that is what I call determination!!! I remember thinking once that I was doing really good my videos at home, until I saw myself in the reflection of our television and realized that I looked soooooooooooooooo dorky. I'm sure that is not the case with you though!!! You look really cute in this outfit btw, love your new pants!

Goodness, I don't even want to think about how hilarious I look when I do zumba! I see all the other girls looking hot and just know that I look like a hot mess. ;-)
