Tip to reduce weight: First turn your head to the right and then turn it to the left. Repeat this exercise every time you are offered something to eat.

( only those who risk going to far know how far they can go)

self control is knowing you can and deciding you wont

the only thing you can't do ....is what you dont think you can do!!!!!.

Thanks for the tips about protein.

No Pilates today. I like to take the weekends off from Pilates and do something else, since I teach so many hours of Pilates a week.

you can get a lot of protein from your veggies, butter beans have protein , quinoa is good also , getting informed about the nutrition in your veggies will help you put that to rest, you could find out a lot here at spark.

( only those who risk going to far know how far they can go)

Try cooking the meat until it is extra cooked and well seasoned. Then, add it to a salad with your favorite vegetables. Mix it good and you should get a flavor and consistency that does not appear to be meat. You know, you might ask your husband to do this for you so you want be looking at the salad and picking the meat out. emoticon

I used to have to do this.

I do eat, but I know I'm not getting enough protein. I don't really like meat, although I do eat a little. I have a limit on how much meat I can eat in one sitting. I also don't like beans, tofu, etc., the usual vegetarian protein sources. I tend to do dairy for a lot of my protein needs that are not met by meat, but I don't want to overdo it on the calcium. Trying to find balance.

I taught a Cardio Pilates class this morning. We had a great time!

I hope you are taking the time to eat properly. With so much going on it is not difficult, at all, to put off eating. If you are eating salads make sure you add protein---meats, beans, etc. Unless you are already a vegetarian you will need all of the basics foods to keep your energy up.

I feel like I've already hit that crash and burn state. I'm trying to get my sleep schedule under control, going to bed at the same time every night whether I have to teach in the morning or not. I'm also trying to get my evening routine done faster so I can get at least 8 hours of sleep every night. I think that's why I'm struggling. I haven't been really good about getting to bed at the same time on weekends as I do on weekdays.

I taught an intermediate/advanced class this morning and will teach another one tonight. It went a lot better than yesterday.

You sound like you are getting to the C&B (crash and burn). You need to do something before the worst comes out.

Yes. I did a measly number, but I am going to do more before bed.

BEFORE EXERCISING
ALWAYS WARM-UP---
AFTER EXERCISING ALWAYS COOL-DOWN

Weight Loss by the Minute

Study Shows Accumulating Single Minutes of Exercise Leads to Weight Loss
By Marguerite Ogle, About.com Guide

Doing a little something is much better than nothing.

A study done at the University of Utah which showed that even exercise of very short duration, as little as one minute, can have health and weight loss benefits. Previously it was thought that 10 minute duration was the minimum for significant effectiveness. The study, published in the American Journal of Health Promotion, pretty much debunks even the busiest person’s excuses for not getting enough exercise. A minute here, a minute there, you watch your diet, and voila - you've lost some weight; such a deal.

The exercise does have to be at least a moderate level of exertion. An article published by the University of Utah where the study was done described that as "brisk", like walking at about 3 miles per hour. The intensity of the exercise was found to be a greater factor in weight loss than the duration -- as long as the minutes add up over the week that is.

Each minute of brisk exercise was associated with a reduction of .07 body mass index (BMI) for women and .04 reduction for men. Those might sound like small numbers but that's by the minute and they really add up. Not only that, but researchers found that once people knew they were getting benefit from exercising in shorter bouts, they were more likely to achieve or exceed the minimum of 150 minutes of exercise per week suggested by the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans.

So, for those of us who do Pilates, it's kind of nice to know that tossing off a few roll ups, teasers, or one of the short Pilates routines we have here might have even greater benefit than we thought. When I don't have time for a workout I often find myself doing just a little something to get the circulation going and wake up my core. I've always known it makes a difference. But I have to throw in a caveat: I don't think the full benefits of Pilates can be had in minute-long bites.

Keep in mind that the new study, and basic exercise guidelines that come from the government, are not looking at the level of fitness we are after in Pilates. The strength and endurance; the flexibility and balance; the body, mind, spirit integration as well as overall coordination and uniform development of the body are still going to come through longer, focused workouts.

I don't think anyone is suggesting, really, that one minute bouts of exercise is an idea way to get fit, but it is nice to know that they help more than we thought and that those quick walks down long halls or across parking lots do count toward our cumulative 150 minutes of exercise. By the way, that's a minimum. The American College of Sports Medicine suggests accumulating more like 250 minutes for weight loss. Still, very doable.

Let's just say you wanted to do a minute or so of Pilates. I suggest you limit your range of motion unless you are warmed up, and remember, it's got to be brisk so review instructions before you start so you can flow right through.

My contributions to myself is usually low, well not for me. I did my usual.

I am happy to hear that your classes are the primary answer to your goals. Notice, I did not say total and complete answer. There is always room for growth and variety.

I taught a 60-minute class this morning and will teach another tonight. We did intervals this morning for some cardio; tonight we will do an intermediate mat class. This morning's workout wore me out.

That really does sound like a great way to start a day. I am not too familiar with the Exo Chair and I am sure some of our other members would love to hear about it.

Today I stayed with some simple mat exercises for 46 minutes.

My practice is usually about 35 minutes. Pilates is definitely a very strong influence in your life.

It would be nice if you listed, on a daily basis, the practice you performed for that day. Fielding questions would also be nice.
