Wow! What a workout! I almost didn’t go. Had a moment of “Eh I think I just want to go home and get into my pjs”. But I snapped myself out of it and told myself I have to keep going! So glad I did. Plus I feel like I have alot of energy today, which I know my workout contributed to that. (I have a 5 month old who still gets up at least once in the middle of the night. So most days I feel a little sleepy)
So last night was the Barre Amped class and it was great! I almost fell down when I stepped off the curb walking to my car! Today…legs can feel the burn, arms feel the burn, and my side abs and love-handles feel the burn! Not sure how we got those last two areas to work. But that is what I have found to be the great thing about Pilates. You are working one part of your body, but because of how you are instructed to hold your posture and keeping your core tight, you are working more muscles than you realize! **I sound like a walking advertisement for Pilates..Yikes**
This was my second class I have taken and I will be doing it again. I am going to give myself a few days to recover thought.
On top of doing Pilates and my dance class I am really watching my portion control. I am also stopping and making sure I am really hungry and not just bored before I eat. I am a night time snacker! (who isn’t?) Queso and Chips, Ice Cream, Cereal…oh so good…has now been (not cut out) just lessened.
Like I said in my last post…I hope I can keep this going!
Come on fellow workout-ers! Don’t Stop!
