Day 177: Sunday Pilates with Reindeer

Good morning ๐Ÿ™‚

After such an exciting Saturday, what could be better than Sunday morning Pilates to reset everything!

10961-Orange stretches
Orange Pilates…

It was a good class ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 Iย 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 ๐Ÿ˜€

Day 177 Complete ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Wait a minute. You mean to tell me you haven’t had chocolate in 6 months? What is wrong with you, woman? I workout like a crazy person precisely because I want to be able to eat a chocolate anytime I damn well please! ๐Ÿ™‚


    1. hehehe I had a bar of something at the great Dorset steam fair in September…
      I have tiny chocolate mousses quite often ๐Ÿ™‚ so it sort of stops the craving ๐Ÿ˜€
