• Project: Have Fun with it Friday: Creating an outdoor Sunflower Fort! Thanks to my wonderful friend Megan for this tip on my “Recommend a Pin” page I definitely wanted to give it a try with the girls. If it works out I can definitely see them playing in it when the weather is nice (not right now!)
• Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): really it was super easy to do, now for the hard part- growing anything in AZ in the summer time!!
• Time: 20 minutes
• Would I do it again? well I might have to if this first plant doesn’t work out
• What I would do differently: plant when it’s not crazy hot and make sure there’s good enough soil
• Items used: sunflower seeds, love, and the adorable idea from: http://letslassothemoon.com/2011/08/28/sunflower-house/

Wear it Wednesday: fit momma: My 15 minute Insanity Workout with Dr. Oz and Shaun T.!

My 15 minute Insanity Workout with Dr. Oz and Shaun T.!

“PINSPIRATION”, FROM PINTEREST:

• Project: Wear it Wednesday: fit momma: My 15 minute Insanity Workout with Dr. Oz and Shaun T.!
• Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 3 possibly a 4!
• Time: 15 minutes! Amazing!
• Would I do it again? Most definitely, and yes, this is a picture of me right after I completed the workout, so disregard the “glistening look”.
I really like that it was only 15 minutes. It’s so hard to squeeze in a workout with 2 little ones home from school. I typically like to go on a run, hike, or go do yoga, all of which take a lot longer than little ones can usually take, so this 15 min workout is just what I need on tight days!
• What I would do differently: The first time I did it I really got winded! I toned it down on a few reps, but the next time I kicked it up a level. Like Shaun T. says, its ok to slow down or take a break, just as long as you do more the next day!
• Items used: my MacBook with Dr. Oz’s video with Shaun T’s 15 minute Insanity workout ( doctoroz.com ) and Lululemon gear (my favorite!).
