Princess Kate

This post is brought to you by inspiration of a royal nature.(Source)

Oh Kate Middleton. You are fabulous. And I kind of want your life. Call me if you’re willing to discuss a swap for a week or weekend or day or minute… or whatever…

But anyway, it’s true. I sort of idolize her. She’s elegant. She has a classic sense of fashion. She gets to travel the world. She’s sporty. And, oh yeah, she’s a princess.

To be honest, I’d be satisfied with just 3 of the 5. Maybe even 2 of the 5…

I’m not picky.

But anyway, as a fan of hers, I feel it necessary to say “happy belated anniversary” to her and Will. Especially since I made a point of watching the nuptials last year.

It’s one of my favorite “Mon and Amy” stories. Because we got up and hit the gym at 4:00 in the morning to watch the ceremonies start and ended the day with champagne to watch all the post-wedding coverage we had already seen 3 times that day.

I mean, we were going to get up to watch anyway, might as well be doing something during, right?

This was still sort of in that period where I was getting used to the morning workout- attempting to make it at least 3 days a week and calling it a win.

Now, it’s a set habit. And I’m at the gym/running no less than 4 mornings out of the week (when I work 9-6 in the office- it’s always changing). Sometimes cursing happens while getting dressed (not very princess-like of me, I’m sure), but I get there.

It feels awesome to sleep in. But it feels so much better to have my workout done and out of the way. When I do get home after work, all I have to do is take off my jacket and throw myself back into the dent in my couch for the evening.

Keeping that in mind, I did a pretty standard 22 minutes on the stairmill (to achieve that Middleton booty) before retreating to the elliptical for another 16 (why not 15? who knows- I like weird numbers) and finally to the weight room to mess around with free weights and that weird hip adduction machine I’ve started to like so much.

There’s no doubt that morning workouts are much more productive for me than evenings ones. Especially in intensity.

Which is a good thing. If I want to get in princess shape, this will surely help.

Please excuse me… now that I have that crossed off the list, I must track down a stylist to help me on my quest to become the next Kate Middleton.

  1. I am really jealous of your morning workout habit! I have been trying for months and I still struggle!

  2. I think i’d even settle for just her hair. So fabulous.

  3. I love Kate and William. I loved and still love Princess Diana. I was married the same year she was, had my first child the same month and year William was born and had my second child the same year Prince Harry was born born, so needless to say I love, love the royal family. :)
    I think Kate is doing a beautiful job as being a Princess! Such class.

  4. She is kind of fabulous, but I’m not too into celebrity things, so I refuse to call her my girl crush. However, she is kind of fabulous.

    I have a friend who lives in London and mailed me a “Kate and Will” wedding T-shirt as a joke. If you want it…I’m just saying ;)

  5. haha. I love her too, because she’s so perfect but at the same time not. I just want to be friends with her, you know? And obviously borrow her clothes/fascinators..

  6. I love Kate too. I’ll fight you for a swap of her life!

    It’s funny you say that about intensity. I love everything about morning workouts, but my intensity is definitely better in the afternoon. I read once that women are best to exercise in the late afternoon hours because of the hormone levels at that time. I have no idea, but it really seems like the case for me. 3-5pm is my best time to workout, which obviously doesn’t work with work. Work ruins everything, basically!

  7. I think you could totally pull it off- better start looking for a prince :)

  8. I love Kate Middleton too. She’s a princess, and she just seems normal. I love that.

  9. No kidding, she is one person whose life I can honestly say I’d trade with in a minute. But then again, I do swear a lot…I don’t think I’d last a day.

  10. She is exquisite. I wish I had an ounce of that. Morning workouts make my day so much better. If I don’t get it in first thing, there is no motivation for me for the rest of the day.

  11. That’s awesome that you’ve got it down to a science. Regular morning workouts will never happen for me. But on days I work from home, I get up and go at 8 a.m. and then just start my work day sweaty. So that’s two days a week of technically waking up early to workout. On other days I go after, and it’s not so bad because I know I don’t have to do it every day. Seems we’ve both worked out a system. I would say, “high five!” but that doesn’t seem very princess-like either.

  12. I just love when I’m in that morning 4+ days a week routine. I have become a morning gym convert!

    Kate really is something! I love, love, love her style, seriously, I’d love to live in her closet, or at least share it…

  13. I always tell my b-f that I’d like to be a fulltime princess. I find it funny, but a lot of people tell me i look like Kate…it’s a compliment. I just need her wardrobe and waistline!

  14. Now that I am teaching class at 6 am, I can guarantee that morning workouts won’t happen. Nor will evening ones. I need to do this thing in the mid-afternoon. When all the senior citizens are exercising. Makes me look like a badass.

  15. She is so fab. I really can’t believe it’s been a year! I wonder if she gets up to workout in the am too :)

  16. I totally have a girl crush on her!

  17. I’m obsessed with her- she’s so classy and elegant and seems like a cool chick

  18. I love those two together… actually I kind of just want to be her haha

  19. I think you know we have this girl crush in common. I want to be here hard core….it’s disturbing. Her look is timeless but more importantly she carries herself SO well. Although I want Harry, not Wills. Odd, because I’ve never been into gingers, ha.

  20. I love her hair, but I don’t like how she does her eyeliner. She has racoon eyes!

  21. I mean how classy is she? I think it helps that she never really talks a lot, giving the public little to moan about. She shops high-end and right off the street – something accessible about her. Now, I will say, I do hope she puts on a few pound. Poor girl is probably under a ton of stress.

    And I’m going to agree with Melissa – get over the eye-liner, bleck.
