Pinterest Workout

Last night I spent a good 30 minutes on Pinterest. I initially went on the site to help my sister find some pictures for a slideshow she’s putting together for work, but as any of my fellow pinners out there know, you can’t spend less than five minutes on the site.

Before I knew it, I was pinning away and lusting after this necklace

(Yes, I totally added that hyperlink to make it easy for one special and handsome husband to find.)

I also fell in love with these boots


(At just under $500 dollars, they are a steal! Winking smile Hyperlink added for the benefit of you ballin’ ladies out there… AKA not me.)

And then I laughed at this little cartoon and emailed it to Ryan because who doesn’t love a little dino love?

One thing I did not  expect to find on Pinterest? Workout ideas!

Once I stumbled upon a neat workout idea on the site, I started searching for more and felt inspired to try one of the workouts I pinned at the gym this morning.


Today’s workout began with the upper body workout I found on Pinterest which comes from the Tone it Up site:

Cool huh?

It was a super fast workout, but the combination of the push ups and the back-to-back planks got me sweating right off the bat. Phew!

Since I finished the pyramid workout pretty quickly, I added some more strength training exercises to my workout and completed three sets of the 15 repetitions of the following exercises:

I rounded out my workout with 20 minutes on the elliptical.

Now it’s 2 p.m. and I still haven’t had lunch. I’ve been snacking through the morning (pretzel crisps and peanut butter, why are you so addicting?) and I haven’t felt hungry until just now. Off to fix myself a plate!

    This workout is amazing! I love it. I did it last night when I somehow got a surge of energy and felt great after. Its easy, its simple and its the perfect quick workout when you don’t really have the time to make it to the gym. i feel like I no longer have any excuse to not get at least a little workout in everyday. WOOT

    Hi there! Just discovered your blog thanks to Pinterest, through the upper body workout pyramid.
    I was wondering, since you tried the workout: is it OK for people who want to tone as well as have thinner arms? I’m on a weith-loss plan this summer, and my arms need toning, but I’m not sure if toning them will also make them thinner, or if I have to lose weight and then tone them?
    Thanks a lot !
