This is a turning point in my life. OUR lives. The B household. I read this week that a good rule of thumb when it comes to food is, If your great-grandmother didn't eat it then you shouldn't either.
My knee is feeling much better! Mr B bought me a knee brace that I have been wearing for exercise, and the occasional painful day at home. This week I am kicking exercise into full gear!
I found a new exercise that I love. Adore. Enjoy. I liked Jillian Michael's 30 day shred, but I liked it because of the results. The actual exercise was not equal to a party on my yoga mat. Want to hear what I have been doing?
I have to admit, I was a huge skeptic of Pilates. I always hear celebrities and fashionistas talking about pilates. My first thought, You are skinny. Of course something like just stretching works for you. I was wrong, y'all! It is an intense workout. But I felt great the entire time. It's low impact while my knee is healing. & I didn't even check the clock to see how long was left. Instead, when it was over I thought, That's it?. The next morning I was sore so I must have done something right. I was able to do pilates twice.
Let's get to it...
The good: I lost 2 lbs! I worked out 2 days, which is all I could do last week. I'm ok with it.
The bad: I had a donut, a handful of sour patch kids, and garlic bread. (Which, really, isn't that bad.)
The goals: Pilates 3 days, Elliptical 1 day, and a long walk outside 1 day.
