The act of ticking things off a list is so satisfying. It’s like an instant sense of accomplishment and a pat on the back all rolled into one. That’s why I like Blogilates.com monthly workout planners so much 🙂
Since last posting I have also completed another run around the block and I’m trying to work out how I can insert the data into posts (I’m not sure how interesting that would be though!)
I’ve also tested out the following Blogilates videos:
POP Pilates for Beginners: Ab Time – this video was really helpful because it went through the moves slowly and so I could check that I was doing them properly. It was an effective workout and followed by the 10 min Ab Sculpting I felt well and truly snapped in 2!
The Bubble Butt Workout was well-timed to break up all the abs exercises. With the WT challenge and jogging around the block my abs are feeling fairly used most of the time and it felt good to work other muscles for a change! I’m not sure if a “bubble butt” is really what I’m seeking but it can’t hurt to be a bit perkier in the behind.
I finished up last week with Total Body Pilates with Ana Caban it was really cute to see Cassey fangirling in the intro to this video. Ana and Cassey go through what I now consider to be “classic” pilates moves. There’s lots of things in “tabletop” position and with the pilates “neck” (head raised slightly off the floor). It was nice to have more chat in the videos as I felt a bit more like I was in a class rather than at home on the sitting room floor.
On Friday I did a Pilates class at work and kicked my butt! I was still aching yesterday but today the aches and pains have gone so tonight will be another run around the block followed by some more Beginners 2.0 videos and I will pick up the WT challenge again.
I have continued eating low-sugar foods and no dessert. This weekend food highlights included: leeks in a mustard/red wine vinegar vinaigrette with a slice of ham, a beef goulash and a teeny bit of home made apple compote.
Not sure what videos await me after running this evening but I’ll update on them very soon.
Keep climbing !
