Happy Monday! (And An Exercise Request…)
A few things on this (rare) rainy morning in Southern California.
1. I redesigned my site again. Actually, D redesigned my site. Don’t we love D? I love D. Especially when he picks up on my very subtle clues that I’m needing a change. (You know, like staring out the window with a fake tear, shaking my head and muttering that I can’t continue my online presence. “It’s just too hard. The inspiration is GOOOONNNNE.”) He’s a doll, that one. Worked on it all weekend for me!
2. Aunt Flo came to visit this morning. I’m sure you all are thrilled to start off your week with that information, but let me just say, Aunt Flo visited after being 7 DAYS LATE. You know, I have a lot of big things planned for 2012, but another baby was really not one of them. I think I am electing myself President of the Two Is Enough Club.
3. Exercise! I realize I haven’t updated you all on my exercise routine after the boot camp post, but in March of this year, I hopped off the boot camp train and started doing small group Pilates on a reformer three times a week. I can’t even begin to tell you how much it had changed my body! However, after an unprecedented family discussion and vote (that Wita is quite the orator BABAAAAA DAHHHHGIE NOOOOOO), we joined a gym yesterday. (How dare they want to work out too! Assholes!) Starting this week, gone are the days of completely individualized instruction (BOO, but also gone are the ginormous monthly payments, YAY), and I’m a little nervous about losing the muscle tone and definition that I worked so hard to obtain, especially in my arms and back. (Which led me to do this Tracy Anderson video twice yesterday.)
Do you have any suggestions? I’m planning on getting my cardio via spinning and/or Elliptical, but in terms of toning, the gym offers a Barre-type class, as well as Mat Pilates. Do you all have any experience with those? Or great exercises I could do on all that meathead gym equipment? (Which totally intimidates the hell out of me, by the way. I’m skeered.)
