Killer Calves & Copy Cat Outfits

I'm all about incorporating fitness throughout the day.  I'll randomly do sit ups, sporadic exercise, dips you name it.  Yesterday I did a little calf work and OH MY I am sore today!  

Here's how it works:

Find Stairs

On Step 1: Do 10 calf raises

Step 1

On Step 2: Do 20 calf raises

Step 2

On Step 3: Do 30 calf raises

Step 3
***Dog not necessary for calf raises

Keep adding 10 more calf raises every time you go up a new step.  

I've got 9 steps so by the time I get to the top I'll have done a total of 450 calf raises.  You don't have to do as many steps......AND if you don't have steps in your house or apartment building use an outside curbside.  You won't feel it right away but the next day your calves will be sore!  

Sleek, strong calves make me happy.

I also pulled a total copy cat move this week with an outfit I saw in a magazine.  I wish I could say I created all of my outfits on my own but that would be a big fat lie.  I get a little help.....When I see an outfit in a magazine I cut it out and put it on a cork board.

Here is my version based on what I had in my closet....

Have a GREAT Saturday!!

Get Up & Go


  1. I really like that outfit! Very nice!

  2. What a great idea with the stairs....I will have to slow it down one day to do this :). The outfit is really cute, way my closet would let me pull out anything even close; I think I should go on What Not to Wear!

    Thanks for stopping by!! :)

  3. we have 5 flights of stairs in our building... just the thought of that makes my calves start to cry, LOL

  4. What an awesome way to strengthen the calves! And, awesome outfit :)

  5. Well done on copying the outfit! I do the same!!! I have 13 stairs...that's a lot of raises! Love it!

  6. This is a great idea! I can totally do this at home when I can't get to the gym. Bonus- I can work on counting with the kids. Love it!

  7. Great outfit...i am impressed. Enjoying your blog. Dawn Suitcase Vignettes

  8. Okay, I think this was some kind of divine intervention because I have been wanting to come up with a stair workout and have been lazy about it. Thanks so much for visiting OAGJ. I am going to be checking back with you often:)

    Love the inspired outfit. I am do the same thing with pictures that I find:)



  9. Calf raises kill me. It hurts so bad to get out of bed the next day and step on the floor, but totally worth it.
