Day 177: Sunday Pilates with Reindeer
Good morning 🙂
After such an exciting Saturday, what could be better than Sunday morning Pilates to reset everything!
It was a good class 🙂 the person who last week, managed to annoy me despite probably giving useful feedback wasn’t there so I didn’t feel all judged so that was good 🙂 I am aware that i might have been a tiny bit paranoid last week…shhh that is not the point…I never claimed to be well adjusted…I am working on it though :-p
Anyway…back to the Pilates class. We did a selection of the moves we normally do, with some interesting new variations and options to use the resistance bands. There was a new advanced level to the swan dive, which involves more control and less rocking on my tummy (which also involves quite a lot of control to keep a curvy back). This new version involves lifting up using back muscles, starting with your arms in front of you circling them round behind you.
Among other things, we also did the hundred which I explained here. I was thinking while I was doing it, that it never seems to get easier… I suppose I have improved because at the start I could hardly get through the whole thing without a rest… and now I can..and technically it might have been the hundred and ten as I think I counted 6 twice… but it still seems really hard! Maybe it is just one of those things that never actually gets easy!
What about the Reindeer I hear you cry…
Well Sarah the awesome Pilates teacher bought every one in the class a tiny lindt bear or reindeer or some such yummy chocolatey treat! (yes it is chocolate which is sugary and not good…but it was tiny and only one…and it is actually ok to eat one tiny chocolate reindeer in 6 months!)
And (I discovered) that he was a good fit to live in the ashtray in my car. There has got to be a use for ashtrays in cars after all…Now I know what it is 😀
Day 177 Complete 🙂
