some belly shots. workout style...

so first of all i need to say thank you to all you guys for your encouraging words on that last post. i was ba-lown away by all your sweet comments. when i wrote the post, i was wanting you all to go on an encouraging spree on other blogs, not on mine. my husband says i basically forced you all to leave comments. ha. and maybe i did. oh well, it was fun, wasn't it?

many of you asked to see some belly shots(not to be confused with body shots) in your comments. of course! coming right up...

Photobucket

now, as penance for bossing you around, i have also prepared a 5 second workout video for all of you to work out to. at your convenience. it really only lasts 5 minutes. it's at the bottom of this post.

Photobucket

if you will notice, i have almost gotten off the floor in my attempted jump. agile like a cat, people. ba-lee dat, people.

layne wanted to get in on the action too. he was mad that i was even wearing the sweatband. sweatbands are for exercising people, mom. but i just felt like this accessory really empowered me to jump higher. and i think it made my super pasty legs glow even more...but i don't know. maybe it was all in my head.

Photobucket

i guess he's picked up on my non-exercising capabilities. i'm more of a napper. now that is where a girl can get some energy.

Photobucket

also, nato(my husband) came home in the middle of this "photoshoot" and walked into the room looking quite surprised.
you know that's a belly shirt right?
are you serious about those shorts?
seriously, what are you doing?


he was scared about all this going on the interweb. i mean, i was wearing a belly shirt and that can be frightening. i was a little unsettled about it too...but boy did i feel free. layne was like, oh mom, your belly has grown. why do i have such an observant child...

ya, ya it has. i'm 27 weeks. my thighs are truly twice the size. as are my "bumps" (what layne calls my bust region). i don't do pregnancy gracefully. might as well make fun of it.

you'll need to make this video full screen to really see all of the gloriousness in detail.


prego workout from jami nato on Vimeo.
(and this says 5 minute workout and it really should say, 5 SECONDS of sheer fitness...minor typo)

and side note, on thursday, i'll be over at Mel{V} designs doing a tutorial on how to make a onesie gift. so hop over there if you get a chance and check that goodness out.

  3. ps.. i do not sit all day and night by the light of my computer waiting for you to post just so i can comment in the first 5 minutes. we must have ESP there is clearly no other explaination.

  4. um, i pretty much loved this post and your workout video. it's 5 more seconds of a workout than i did when i was prego. forget nato, i love the shorts. :)

    ReplyDelete
  5. that 5 second workout was way more workout than I can handle. I'm glad it was you and not me because I'd be in the hospital from pure exhaustion, and awkward amounts of sweat. Yeah, they hospitalize people for that. FUUUNKY.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I would have liked a behind the scenes video of you pushing the timer and running into place?! Cause I have seen it under normal circumstances and the thought of it with work equipment makes me giggle.

    Classic. Oh and after I saw the first picture, before I moved onto the rest of the post, I went a emptied the bladder. Did not want to have mid morning undies change.

  25. i am impressed by the height you've achieved in that jump. when i was at about the same point in my pregnancy, i was playing horse (the basketball kind) with pea daddy (what? a pregnant girl playing basketball?) and i tried to make a jump shot and it felt like my feet were glued to the ground. i got no air. at all. just people laughing at me. including myself.

    p.s. you look great!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thank you for making my day! Loved your belly shirt! I can't even imagine what my husband would say! ;)

    ps: You look AMAZING!

    ReplyDelete
  27. way to go against the well meaning men in your life and rock the headband and shorts anyways! hilarious!

  29. Excuse me. Jami Nato. You, my dear are the funniest person I have never met. Hi.lar.i.ous.

  49. Seriously Jami? Seriously? You are the most specialist person I know. ;) Sometimes Jeff "catches" me taking photos for my blog or shop and it embarrasses me a little...I can't even IMAGINE what he would say if he walked in and I was doing THIS photo shoot. :) Nato is a special man for being married to you as well. ;) Come to my gym with me sometime to pretend to work out and wear that outfit. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  50. Oh Jami, you funny. Would have loved to have seen the look on Nato's face when he walked in. How did he notice the belly shirt over the glare?? kidding. You look great! You wear your bump so well. : )
