I survived!

Tuesday, June 10, 2014

Tonight was my first pilates class, ever.

I'm happy to say that I survived!!! There were 5 people in my class (including me); and I was the only beginner.

I now have a good baseline of where I am at: not in good shape, at all. To an observer, it probably looked like I wasn't trying to do the exercises. In fact, I was trying very hard -- I'm just that out of shape. I'm extremely sore.

This class meets every Tuesday evening until the end of August. I'm hoping that by August, I'll be in a much better physical condition.

    emoticon I've only done a little bit of basic Pilates using DVDs at home, so I kinda know it is NOT as easy as it looks! Way to go sticking to your plan to step outside your comfort zone. emoticon

    You certainly will be!

    Keep practicing when you can at home some of what you learned. Use youtube to help you out. I can't imagine what I look like doing that stuff! HAHA!

    I've actually thought about taping my zumba just so I can see me... emoticon
