Two Meatballs: Did You Guys Know That I Have a Sister Or That I’m Dating The Cutest Guy!?

Bahahahahahahaha jk times a million!!!  Of course you know these things bc I never shut up about them!!!!  So my sweet sis…you guys she is the living best!!!  I am soooo thankful to have her in my life…everyone should be this lucky!!!  I was still feeling super ick from my no air trauma Saturday morning and this little cutie showed up at my house with some Starbucks!!!  And we decided to gallivant all around town.  Since I told her that I felt not so hot she came in jorts and a crappy t-shirt and for once in my life I had options for her to wear!!!  #progress So we played a little game I like to call…two sisters…one shirt!

Then I tried on her t-shirt #fail!!!

She settled on the Mouse tank which it turns out that this tank looked good with everything #whoknew and I rocked my #Meatballnation tank (thanks Kristen)!!!  Get yours today !https://www.etsy.com/listing/200348080/wwwtwomeatballsgetfitcom-signature-tank?ref=shop_home_active_1

Then, we hopped into the car and headed to Torrid…coffees in hand!

All of my clothes were getting a little baggy so it was time to shop!!!  First we decided to try on jumpsuits #failparttwo! #dumpinthepants

wpid-mycollage_215.png

#oooooph!  Then I tried on some jorts myself and honestly they were so rednecky and trashtastic I couldn’t commit to a pic! I know its hard to believe based on the hideous pics that we put on here but this one was shameful! #ijudgedmyself But I had a revelation that I went down a size!  These were 22’s and they were HUGENORMOUS!

Then we tried EVERYTHING on!!!! #ilivefortwinning

wpid-mycollage_217.pngwpid-mycollage_214.png

I joyfully spent some money reinvesting into my wardrobe!  Then we hopped down to DSW!

wpid-20140816_123608.jpgwpid-20140816_124222.jpg

One win…one intentional fail!!!!  Then it was off to lunch at super yummy super healthy Neomonde’s where we ran into one of my first client’s ever, Johanna and her friend who had just come from a bike ride!!!  I love this girl!

We both got the living yummiest, no guilt lunches and sat outside soaking up all this great weather!!! I had the chicken and steak kabob platter with fatush and corn salad!!!

Then we went to Forever 21…bc who do we think we are!? #youbitchesareinyour30’s

wpid-mycollage_212.pngwpid-mycollage_216.png

One set of wins, one set of fails!!! And then I found these adorable shorts!!!

Mama’s got a new workout outfit!!!! I wore them later in the week and honestly…look how cute! #walkofnoshame

We could literally paint fences together and we would have fun!!!! Sooo, we spent the whole day together and ate super healthy and got tons of walking exercise and lets be honest…nothing gets you sweatier than trying on clothes!!! #goodforeachother #bestdecisions Then we put on our new shoes…

And hoofed (did you see what I did there) to Chilli’s for Uncle Marty’s birthday!!!! Look at this sweet family!

I can’t really make a good decision at Chilli’s so we came and enjoyed the company and celebration and a heaping glass of water and then met up with my little meatball for actual dinner! Nothing makes me happier than all of my friends and family getting along! We went to Winston’s and had the yummiest salads!!! I’m going to leave this night here and Jenny is going to write about her Mommy’s Night Out on tomorrows post!!! #thefunnestdontmissout

Then we walked around the Capitol #itwastreeemendous and perused the shelves at Barnes and Nobles #americangirldollmagazine watched a lot of Law and Order SVU, he made a yummy little dinner of chicken fajitas #annnnndhecancook and topped the night off with Inglorious Basterds my all time fav movie…

Now onto the workout before and after…

Sooooooo… a couple of months ago I thought wouldn’t it be adorable for us to have meatball tank tops to work out in!?!  The first person who popped into my mind to make this wish come true was my fabulous client Kristen Crumbley!!!

wpid-img_4863029512805.jpeg

She is the proud owner of KC Batik!

wpid-img_4493482233311.jpeg

She made a shirt for my nephew Chase for his 3rd birthday and he was over the moon!!! He literally liiiiiived in this shirt.  This woman has soooo much talent!!!

Now….lets see those tank tops in action…it’s Sandra time at Innovative Fitness Training!!!!!

First let me say that I love nothing more than dressing alike…#twinning #gymselfies #iliveformatchymatching #bedhead #jennyyouralwayslooksgooddammit

wpid-20140731_074629.jpgwpid-20140731_074903.jpgwpid-20140731_074909.jpg

Today was a strugggggggglllllleeeee!  I don’t think either one of us sleep that well on a weigh in post night which equates to crabbiness #bigtime but we showed up and sometimes that is all you can ask of yourself!  Sandra had us start by jogging this morning…we both love this!!!  So it was a great way to start! #whoarewe

Then we did the worssssssst thing!!!  OT’s this thing where you do like a plus one.  So they were TRX squats and you could wither come out of the suat into a small jump (Jenny) or stay low and pulse into the next squat (Sara).  So the first time you do 1, then 2 on up until you hit 20….ouch!!!

wpid-20140731_081546.jpgwpid-20140731_081620.jpgwpid-20140731_081752.jpgwpid-20140731_082352.jpg

Resulting in 210 squats…TWO HUNDRED AND TEN SQUATS!!!! Then we did 3 rounds of push ups starting with 30 seconds for round 1 45 seconds for round 2 and 1 minute for round 3.

wpid-20140731_082451.jpg

Then we did the same time sequence for 3 rounds of wall balls!!!

wpid-20140731_083012.jpgwpid-20140731_083021.jpgwpid-20140731_083014.jpgwpid-20140731_083028.jpg

Then we did three rounds of alternating between two exercises.  The first exercise was to lay flat on a yoga mat and pass a yoga block from your extended arms to your extended legs. touch legs to mat then lift back and pass to arms!!!

wpid-20140731_083259.jpgwpid-20140731_083234.jpgwpid-20140731_083256.jpg

The next exercise was to put the yoga block in between your knees and then do leg up crunches with heel taps!!!

wpid-20140731_083346.jpg

We did these for three rounds of 30, 45 and 1 minute increments!  I can already feel these big time!

Then we did 3 rounds of back rows in the same increments!

wpid-20140731_083529.jpgwpid-20140731_083536.jpg

Then we did slam balls…I love these!  Same 3 rounds!

wpid-20140731_083928.jpgwpid-20140731_083931.jpg

Then we did shoulder presses, round 1 2 20 lb weights, round 2-2 15 lb weights, wound 3-210 lb weights…this was murder…

wpid-20140731_084757.jpg

Then we did the plus one with 3 lb weights!  This went on for 12 rounds!

wpid-20140731_085051.jpg

Then we died…but it was amazing and over!

wpid-20140731_085604.jpgwpid-20140731_085624.jpg

We love you Sandra!!!
