I need to keep exercising. I walk on the treadmill, and I need to/want to introduce Pilates for core strength.

According to my doctor, lifting a 35 lb toddler isn't enough of a weight/core work out in fact, I need to do core strengthening so I can continue to lift my kiddo. My doctor told me these things back in May and I immediately purchased some Pilates dvds from Amazon. Ask me if they've ever been opened. Go on ask me. Uh huh. They sit there next to the dvd player gathering the proverbial dust.

I've been averaging 2 days a week walking on the treadmill and zero days a week doing Pilates. This has to change. I'm no longer a Spring chicken (in fact I'm a late Summer chicken) and I'd really like to be around both mentally and physically as my son grows up. I've seen how lack of movement can be damaging to older people and it's about time I do something about it before, in the blink of an eye, that's me.

  1. Me too. Darn Pilates DVD's taunting me. But that would require vacuuming and keeping the 3 year old out of trouble. :p
