Wake up Call!!!!!!!!! So got home from work today at about 9:00am ( I'm currently working C shift) and got on my workout clothes and decided that I was gonna move today, someway, somehow. I decided to take a break from walking (both my dog and I are hobbling about a bit since we've gotten quite unused to vigorous walking) and thought I would throw in a video and do a little strengthening exercises. I picked a 20 min basic Pilates video as a good easy start (or so I thought). Hoo Boy! I seriously underestimated the drill Sargent that is Pilates! Right at the beginning when she mentioned to roll up keeping me 'core' muscles pulled in I thought to myself "what muscles?" Somewhere along the way I traded any and all muscle tone for a life of sitting on the couch and eating ice cream (I admit seemed like a good trade in the moment). I couldn't help but laugh at myself. I'm starting at the bottom rung here people, but that means there is only one way to go and that is up, up, up. It's motivated me too. I am going to conquer this beast called "Pilates". I'm gonna keep trying till I can do a full rolling sit up from the floor without the aid of my hands! That's my goal! Lord give me strength and thank You Jesus!
