Shut the front door…I attempted Pilates for my first time tonight y’all. Laugh it up, it was ugly but I did it. I am going to sign up for a local Pilates/ActivCore session and I wanted to see what’s in store for me.
My first pass at Pilates, survey says:
– Wow, those tiny weights? Technically Andrew said it but I wasn’t lifting my 15 pounders for this.
– I’m sore. You feel good and sore in the right places, if that makes sense.

– I can’t wait to do it again!

Have you ever given Pilates or Yoga a whirl? Tried anything new for exercising that you ended up loving?
