I did Pilates today!

I've been wanting to try some new workouts lately, so I raided our DVD shelf here at home and found some cool ones. My mom likes yoga and pilates, so I tried those this week. We also have some Biggest Loser ones and of course Tae Bo. How did I forget about Tae Bo? I used to do Tae Bo awhile ago and really liked it. I'm so going to do those. We also have P90X somewhere but I couldn't find them.

The yoga one was booooring. I guess I'm not zen enough. However... the next day, my ass was so sore! So I guess it worked. I might try it again next time I'm feeling blah about working out.

I did the pilates one today tho, and really liked it! It is kind of low-key like the yoga, but kind of fun. I like the poses you have to hold and the way you use your body as resistance rather than using weights. Altho I have to admit the plank position killed me! The DVD I did was called Pilates Mix and it was an MTV workout. I'll be throwing this one into the rotation. I kinda hope I feel it tomorrow so I know it works.

And after 20 minutes of that, I did an hour on the elliptical. Elliptical... old faithful workout. I'm going to go make some dinner now, which will be veggies, rice and grouper. Tomorrow is my Sunday Weigh Day so I hope I have lost some good poundage!

Attitude of Gratitude: I am grateful that we have these workout DVDs lying around so I can dust them off and have a good variety of workouts. And my desire to even do so...

Good for you! I love pilates. I've never tried Tae Bo but I've done boxing and kick boxing and those totally worked me. Keep at it!

Great fitness day. The plank is a killer. Pilates always makes me feel instantly fitter. I know that's ridonkulous, but...I dunno...my whole body feels it. Makes me know that I'm working. Hahahaha!

Great work! Keep it up! I'll be back tomorrow for your weigh-in. You've got this!

Hahaha! I am sooo not zen enough for yoga either. I've tried a class a few times and I always find myself looking around and thinking "Really??"
