More About Pilates

You may have seen the post I did about my Pilates reformer back in September (if not, you can read it here: Pilates Reformer - My Exercise Miracle) and I wanted to give you an update.

This is still proving to be a fantastic form of exercise for me - especially the low impact cardio from the rebounder - no stress on my knees at all! 

Since that post in September, I did purchase the head rest pillow - which I highly recommend - it makes your workouts so much more comfortable. I think it's around $30 and definitely worth it!
Also, I discovered this 10 minute Arm Workout video for the reformer that is excellent! Really works those problem areas like our "bat wing" triceps, lol! I suggest you give this a try if you have a reformer!  I just can't say enough good things about this machine!

2013 - A Year to Remember

To my readers - I apologize for neglecting to post anything for a few months. We were blessed last year with our son getting engaged to his wonderful fiancĂ© who we adore. And then 2013 ended with a bang when our youngest daughter and her fiancĂ© announced after Thanksgiving that they had decided to push up the date for their wedding prior to his deployment in the military. As her default wedding planner, this gave me a mere six weeks to plan & execute the event. It ended up being an absolutely beautiful, intimate ceremony & reception, which was exactly what the two of them wanted. So on a crisp December evening, we didn't lose a daughter, but gained a son, and two wonderful families were brought together in love & laughter. As you can imagine, January was devoted to recovering from that, lol! You will see more posts in the very near future - just wanted to let you know what had occupied so much of my energy as 2013 came to a close until now.  And to offer a sincere, heartfelt THANK YOU to all the soldiers serving in all branches of the military. You truly are heroes!
