Gema Requests A Picture
Another comment suggests taking a few classes and I intend to do just that. When it stops snowing.
My "progress" so far according to my husband "you don't look as dumpy". Isn't he the silver tongued devil? While I don't see a significant change in my waistline (pants fitting better, etc.) I can easily see my feet over my poochy belly fat now. And my face looks thinner. I think that's the 1200 calories and the dog walking. And I can easily sit cross legged on the platform and I don't have to keep stopping during the exercises to catch my breath and getting down on the floor is pretty fast now which was a real project the first few days. Those are the high points. I watch the DVD's to get style pointers. The way to hold my hands, point my toes etc. And the exercise can be done as slowly as you would like.
I did try that floor exercise (way advanced) and I can see exactly how far I have to go. But I have months and years to get there. No hurry. Pilates is just as good without a machine.
It is snowing (4 to 8 inches) and tomorrow more snow with a wind chill of 1. No dog walk tomorrow. G and I had lunch/dinner at a local spot (we were the only customers) and I feel like I ate too much. But I won't be having anything else today. G enjoys going out for a meal on his day off. A simple request which makes him happy. His new prescription has stopped the constant coughing. It cost $250 for 10 pills. With insurance $55. Crazy.
I have been running and doing since I woke up at 9.30 and don't have a thing to show for it. I am going to read my book while G is out snowblowing the driveway. He went to buy gas for the generator in case of a power outage. Be prepared.
