My fantasty Pinterest life - Kelly Runs For Food

My fantasty Pinterest life

Tuesday, February 11, 2014 32

Good morning friends! After 3 days away from the gym, it felt great to get back in there. I got to the gym around 5:00 and did a 35 minute run followed by some leg work in the weights area.

I haven’t give you an update on my gym in a while, but after the water pipe burst in early January, it took forever to renovate the entire circuit weight area. A week before it was supposed to be finished, it happened again! Luckily, it happened in a much smaller area, so hopefully the new carpet should be down and ready by the end of the week. I can’t wait to have my floor space again. I feel like my strength workouts have been a little slack lately, but without my usual space to do my favorite circuits, I’ve been sticking to simpler plans.

While I head off to what promises to be another loooong day staring at my computer screen, I thought I’d perk things up by indulging in a little daydreaming, so allow me to introduce you to:

My Fantasy Pinterest Life

ain't that the truth . . . http://media-cache4.pinterest.com/upload/169448004699680506_PRcEgMPh_f.jpg smithbites favorite quotes

I’ve been daydreaming a lot lately. When things get stressful at work (which is basically this entire month for me), I tend to think of things I’d rather be doing. Pinterest is the best place to daydream, because you can create a fictional and perfect life for yourself via internet bulletin boards. It’s the greatest.

If you don’t follow me on Pinterest yet, I encourage you to join in on the fun. Here’s what my Pinterest fantasy life looks like (clicking on the pictures will take you to that pin):

In my Pinterest fantasy life, I get dressed in this closet:

In my Pinterest fantasy life, I’d select a fine wine from my private wine cellar to unwind at the end of the day.

Then I’d drink said wine on my Pinterest fantasy balcony, because of course I live on the ocean.

what more could you want?

In my Pinterest fantasy life, Riley and I would vacation in Bora Bora.

Le Meridien, Bora Bora

I’d wear this on our date night.

Coral & Nude

For dessert, I’d eat this Chocolate lasagna. All of it. Because this is fantasy Pinterest land and calories don’t exist.

And while we’re in the land of no calories, let’s throw in this garlic bread for funsies. P.S. I’ve made this before and it’s freaking amazing.

In my Pinterest fantasy life, I’d look like this when I did yoga (and I’d actually DO yoga).

Practice, practice, practice!

I’d make sexy poses at the gym in my bra.

Victoria's Secret Model Workout: 10-Minute ~ I just did this and I don't think I have ever sweated this much.

Wait, scratch that. No one looks like that at the gym. And who works out with their hair down?!! Thanks, Pinterest, for giving me unrealistic expectations…It seems my fantasy bubble has been burst by the Victoria’s Secret model working out in full makeup and scratching her hip seductively. Guess I should wrap it up with that one, but first….

To round out this lovely list, I’d have an exceptionally stylish daughter, courtesy of the Greatest Pinterest Board Ever.

When Quinoa attends high tea, she never forgets to tuck a spare decanter into her updo, just in case. #MIWDTD

Doesn’t my Pinterest life look amazing? Don’t get me wrong, I love my real life, but let’s not lie- it’d be pretty sweet to have that wine cellar. Thanks for indulging in the daydreaming with me and I hope you have a great day!

What does your Pinterest fantasy life look like?

What’s a good circuit workout I can do crammed into a 2-foot corner space?

    Hahaha this cracked me up. Pinterest does make an amazing fantasy life ;)

    I LOVE the Nike Trainer app for circuit workouts! I’m not sure how much space the all take up but I can usually fit them in somewhere in an empty spot at my gym! Good luck!

    Being able to look like that when doing yoga would be amazing… it makes me actually want to start practicing regularly. I wonder how long you’d have to be at it to be able to do that… #wishfulthinking

      Wow, your Pinterest life sounds pretty amazing. I think being a master baker or chef should be an addition to mine as well.

      I want to find that dress soon, or at least something similar!
