Princess Tiana Workout Inspiration


1) Since we are still hopping into spring, I figure light weight jackets like this Nike one would be nice at keeping the cold out, but not too much body warmth in.
2). I was kind of sad I couldn't find any Tiana Workout shirts, but this "Excuses Suck" one seemed in the vein of Tiana's ethic of "hard work pays off, excuses get you no where." And let's be honest, it's true in goals like working out. 
3). I'm a big fan of Capris and I liked how these looked like water reflections--like the water in a bayou!
4). Speaking of water...Since I'm a self-professed water baby, you know I have to throw in a swimsuit! I love this suit's retro cut (albeit from the 50's, not 20's). It looks like it would look great on any body type too!
5). These shoes were perfect! They remind me of the design of Tiana's flower crown!
6). If you're already in warmer weather, you might enjoy these compression shorts a bit more since they won't be as warm. 
7). OMG, I LOVE this bag!!! If you haven't seen Tim Shumate's interpretations of Disney Princesses in tattoo/pin-up form do so! I loved his Tinkerbell & Pocahontas design (so much so, I want to get them tattooed!) but I also like his Tiana design and it would make a great tote for post gym change of clothes. 

Since this is Tiana we're talking about, and she turns into a frog via a curse, let me share with you an exercise that YES you feel the results, but, feel like a curse (at least to me) to do. I give you, BURPEES!!! You will jump at the end and get air just like a little froggy!
Tiana has like 3 jobs! You can make time for this burpee workout!

Oh, you need some music for those burpees? No problem-o home skillet! I've got you covered with a New Orleans inspired playlist!

Tiana is easily one of my favorite princesses! I loved The Princess and the Frog (though, to be honest I was kind of let down by the soundtrack) for its throwback to 2D animation, beautiful scenes and characters. But, what I really liked was Tiana's go-getter attitude!

She was determined, and worked hard to get what she wanted (no matter what the social climate of the 1920's south had to offer). She was self-reliant, and didn't need a prince to save her. In fact, she used her knowledge, and cool headed thinking to save the prince! She reminds me of another of my favorite princesses in the heroine/princess department--just, sans warrior training. In addition to being a beautiful princess, I thought she was adorable as a frog too.

Also Tiana cooks beignets...if you've had them, I think you know why that's a good enough argument. It is.


Have you seen The Princess and the Frog?

    I loved the movie.. but kind of wished she had more time as a human in the movie than being a frog. xD

    1. YES! Yes! Yes! And more yes! I do wish she had more time as a human (I am glad her froggy form was cute). I would have loved more princess time for her too!

  4. Tiana is one of my favorites too. Burpees on the other hand? Not my favorite thing at all!
