Pilates and David

So I don't know if I was Superwoman yesterday, but I certainly felt accomplished. I ate healthy food. (I didn't eat five muffins for dinner. They were seriously good.) I worked out ( And then I sat in a hot tub so my sore muscles felt better.) I didn't yell at my kids. (Well, I didn't yell at my kids much.)  See...accomplished. :)

This morning I am going to a core-crossing training class. This is like pilates...only better. She adds weights at the beginning and it is more upbeat, and I have to say, it is the perfect class for any woman who has giving birth. It pulls everything back IN, if you know what I mean. I used to not be a believer in yoga, pilates, etc, but after this year I have changed my mind. These kinds of exercises are essential if you want to actually looked toned. Running is great, but it doesn't have the same effect on your muscles as holding a position for a good amount of time, or if you are my teacher, Allison, WAY TOO LONG.

Ever since I've combined cardio with pilates kind of days, I've seen a difference in my body. Pilates sculpts your body. It carves it into something like the statue of David. Well, okay, maybe I am going to far there, but honestly, it is AWESOME.

So that is how I am starting my day. You know what else is awesome? I'm getting my mom to go with me! ;)
