Mmm..Pilates

Well I am really getting sick of talking about, thinking about, and worrying about scorpions so I thought I should change it up a little!! LOL!!! Also, those pictures still gross me out every time I see them so I can only imagine how bad they are for all of you!!! (We did find another blonde in our laundry basket!!!).
I am one of those ppl that keeps bitchin' about being out of shape, and how my clothes don't fit, but I was really not doing anything about it. I mean I have a really healthy diet, but that can only take you so far. It was time for me to get my ass away from the pool and into a gym!!

Two weeks ago my friend signed me up for her cardio pilates class (free trial), and even though every muscle in my body hurt I went back the next day and I have been hooked every since. The cost was 1200 pesos for a month of unlimited classes, and boy oh boy has it been worth every penny thus far!!!

I was pretty intimidated at first as the entire class is in Spanish, and 99% of the people that attend the classes are Spanish speakers (which they should be!!). The good thing is my Spanish is a heck of a lot better than I give myself credit for, the bad thing? I'm a heck of a lot more out of shape than I thought I was. Jajaja. Entonces,I go Monday thru Friday at the same time every morning. It's a 1 hour long class and I feel GREAT. The instructor is amazing, class size is small (6 max) and the equipment that is used is so different than your typical pilates class. I am enjoying it much more as I really feel the cardio aspect. My legs of course are not as straight as all the other students, but nonetheless I point that toe!!!!

I`m going to take some pics next week and post them up for all to see. I wish I could do it this week, but I am off to Jamaica for a friends wedding so will be giving these legs of mine a break!!!

Yes, we are a little excited, but do you know what it is costing us to get there?? LOL!!!! Travelling from Mexico is ridiculous!!

You know what... I think the price is even at 1400 pesos/month now... I had the "early bird special". Jajaa - the girl that owns it is like 21 years old and beautiful, LoL!!!

Sounds like a great class!! I used to take a pilated class and I was amazed at how quickly you start seeing/feeling the difference. Cardio-pilates sounds even better. I know I could stand to lose some weight...:)

I go to a pilates class three times a week, I really enjoy it! I remember that I was extremely sore, until a couple weeks after I began. Pilates is soo good for toning the core body muscles, especially!
Keep it up!!

Krysten - Jamaica was good, but I don't think we would ever go back!! Mexico is really "spot-on" in the tourist dept!!!

Ashlie - the class is amazing, you should try it out!!! I haven't been long enough to notice a difference as of yet, but here's hoping!!!

Locachica - OMG, I can't believe how sore I actually get, and how unflexible I am. I have no idea why I'm so suprised, but truly I am NOT flexible at all!!!
