I am great! I made it to mat class this morning and took the hubs with me. Also, a friend from TEAM Fitness (a small-group workout class I do 3 times each week), decided to try Pilates for the first time this morning. We had a great time.

I'm glad to hear your mother is doing a tiny bit better. It sounds like you have a great workout plan! Keep it up!

Anyone else out there doing Pilates? We are the Pilates Lovers Team after all.

Spark on!

So sorry I haven't posted or even checked this thread in a while. I was out of town for a couple weeks, and then didn't get back into the routine. You know what they say, once you get off your routine, it's hard to get back on it.

So sorry to hear about your mother's dog. Our pets can be such a special part of our lives.

I hope everyone is keeping up with their Pilates practice. I'm doing Pilates 3 days a week currently. One of those days is on the equipment, the other 2 are mat classes.

Spark on!

That is great! Sometimes we just have to put off the excuses and go for the walk or do that workout.

I've been trying to get to Pilates class 2X a week at my gym. But I incorporate various Pilates exercises throughout my week. I just throw them in with the rest of my workout.

Last night I went to kickboxing with the hubs. It was a tough class, but I made it through without having to put down the bar or take off the weighted gloves. So win for me! That's the first time I've been able to do that. However, I was so tired this morning that I didn't make it to the gym today.

Tomorrow I'm flying to see my family. Maybe I can get out for a walk when I get there.

I hope everyone is having a great week!

I try to do my Sheppard Pilates DVD 2 times a week, no matter what! I have a bit of a hard time when I'm traveling, so I have a sitting tape for when I drive. It helps me stay toned. THIS 1 part of exercising is what keeps my inches WAY down! I can almost feel it after a 1/2 work out. No kidding! After a month I can go down almost 1" in my hips..... amazing! How about YOU?
From my life today: emoticon 1-19-17 Getting everything done! YES! Off to Zumba emoticon I almost gave up walking today, with our sweet doggie, because it was suppose to rain & be VERY windy. But I decided to get it together, right then & go out before the rain started. After all it was not raining, 'right now". It felt GREAT!!!!! LUCY pup was thrilled! I walked even farther than usual, because I knew she would be lock in for quite awhile. We had a blast! YOUR inspiration is what keeps me going! Thank you! emoticon

How's everyone doing with their goals for 2017?

My goals are to follow the exercise plan my trainer gave me and to get at least 60 grams of protein each day.

I'm following the exercise program, but the changes in intensity level are giving me headaches. I will talk to my trainer about this.

The protein is going fairly well. I hit 60 grams 5 out of 7 days this week. And the days I didn't reach my goal, I only missed by a gram or two.

Pilates class was great this week! I always feel like my body gets a reset when I go to Pilates.

How's everyone's Pilates practice going?

If you wanted a better more authentic try at pilates, try the pilates anytime web site. You can try it free for 15 or 30 days I think and I would recommend it highly if you haven't done pilates before before just jumping into a commercial dvd. :-)

Have an awesome day,
Elly

I tried yoga once, a long time ago with my aunt. It didn't go very well but I think we took the wrong kind - didn't understand that there are many, many varieties LOL.

It always amazes me how much of a stress reducer exercise is. I stay stressed a lot and I tend to let that keep me from exercise because I feel like I'm letting other things go that need to be done. I don't know why I can't remember that the exercise helps clear my mind, helps me feel peaceful within, and makes a lot of the stress melt away, even if it is for a few minutes, no matter what type of exercise.

I started out with Pilates weight loss for beginners by Element. If you are already doing it, you might want something more challenging, but Element had a lot of different levels on Amazon to choose from and there were all kinds of other DVDs from different productions. I liked the way the reviews said this was set up, so I tried it. I started today and I loved it!! I am really weak so I could only do 10 minutes, but I plan to add on to that. :)

4-28-16 Hi! From me, today! My trip took 5 hours by car & I made it safe & sure! I've been going through storage & consolidating! WOW! I closed out the smallest today. A company came & bought it all. I didn't make as much as I hoped, but being in this VERY small rural area, I'm thrilled to stop paying on it. Still have the 2 big ones. Mostly things for my shows, marionettes & etc. Can't replace many of those things! I see Mom on Saturday. She has more for me, again, WOW! I've gone from a "pack rat" to a 'minimalist'. BIG change! Just happy to be working through it! PLEASE stay healthy, it IS our only wealth! Love you!

How's everyone doing on their goals? The weight isn't coming off the way I had hoped, but I've settled into a comfortable rhythm.

Your workouts are absolutely fantastic.

Did you happen to get a copy of the index for this team? This is the last day I can issue SparkGoodies and I really need to know who was at the top of the two categories. Please let me know.

Glad to finally be back here ... whew! It's been awhile ...

I devised, after seven (7) months, my own classical pilates sequence for a comprehensive mp3 yoga sequence I'd devised (in several modules), that would dovetail with the yoga and the cardio belly dance as I saw fit; interchangeable with either (not sure about if it fits with another workout I do frequently--cardio bhangra bellydance--though) ...This is a 13-minute tough "express" sequence ... maybe a little too tough for a morning ... heh heh ...

I audio-mp3-recorded it into my Olympus VN702-PC, that has lain fallow for most of this time ... putting it to excellent use ... I have to upload the file to iTunes ...

So, what I did tonight:

48 minutes cardio belly dance fusion and

13 minutes classical pilates ...

my midsection is a little tingly right now ...

Pilates Tendon Stretch Exercise Adapted for Bed

Bring your heels together and push your heels away as you stretch your toes toward your head for three seconds. Then point the toes away from you.
Repeat nine more times.

Pilates Double Leg Stretch Exercise Adapted for Bed
Bring both knees into your chest and hold onto your ankles, stretching your lower back. Hold the position for ten long, deep breaths -- pulling in the abdomen on the exhale to massage the inner digestive organs and to release the gas from the intestines.

Did you think Pilates was only for the young?

~Alycea

Here's my break down through the decades.

In your Teens and Twenties:

For athletic and fit young adults Pilates is the solution that helps the active young person remain strong and symmetrical in activities that wreak havoc on a healthy body. During these formative years, the body develops asymmetries through poor habits, over training, a sedentary life or bad bio-mechanics. Pilates keeps young people safe from the onslaught of things that might go wrong and acts as a preventative measure.

In Your Thirties and Forties:

For our heaviest labor years, Pilates makes the biggest impact. These are the decades we bear children or sit at a desk for months or beat up our bodies via continual neglect. Enter Pilates which offers the ideal maintenance program and trains the core of the body to hold our posture strong. It also teaches us to move our bodies safely, to work out in a challenging but safe way and begins to address issues that might become much larger physical problems if left unattended. Just ask the professional athletes that call Pilates their go-to training regimen.

Fifties and Sixties:

During our fifties and sixties, gravity begins to rear its ugly head on our bodies. Our discs compress, our muscles can begin to waste and we become more prone to illness and injury. Beyond serving as a preventative measure, Pilates can also be therapeutic and rehabilitative. Joseph Pilates actually called his system "corrective exercise". Beyond all those benefits, Pilates helps us enjoy movement again, connect to our bodies and, (one of my favorite benefits) improve concentration and focus.

Seventies Plus

Training effects occur across all decades of life. Taking up Pilates in your seventies is completely reasonable. Pilates sessions maintain muscle tone as well as bone density and balance and also improve breathing. These are all key issues as we age.

I don't know many forms of exercise that are truly sustainable through each decade of life. No matter your state of fitness or ability, there is a safe form of Pilates for every one.

FYI - I've started another thread title "Pilates By Karen Videos" that has my videos. Rather than posting them all at once, I'm trying to post one each Sunday. Last week's didn't get there until a few days later. There are currently three up, but I'll be adding more in the future.

Thanks for these links. I can use them now. Couldn't for a bit until an injury healed.
