Pilates

Dear Blog,

Every year I have a new fitness goal. 2005, I ran a half marathon in Charlotte. 2006, I ran/walk/limped the Chicago Marathon. 2007....drum roll please...I'm going
to become a pilates instructor! There are many reasons for this pilates instructorness. I will tell you because I know you are just DYING right now. Whilst Aaron and I were on our honeymoon we saw many beautiful sights...and many not so beautiful sights. I saw one too many flabby stomachs, boobs, arms, thighs, calves and sadly...toes. I thought to myself, "Self. You will never have flabby toes. You will do pilates." When we got back from the honeymoon, I swiftly ran to the next Pilates class at the Y. Love it, love it, love it. Had a bad day at work? Pilates. One too many cupcakes? Pilates. Too much time in front of the tv? Pilates. Cures all evils. Another reason to love the pilates, you can incorporate it into your everyday life.

Par example;
Want to read a magazine? Do the plank!



Want to rest the old back while doing some work? Put the laptop on your "tabletop"!





And finally, if you've had too much to drink and you just can't take it anymore. Bend yourself over and hang in the monkey position. Works everytime.




P.S. You do not have to always wear yellow patent leather flats when you randomly decide to do pilates. That's just my thing. You can do what you want.

xoxo,
Alison the pilates instructor

very intuitive jcg! that IS the new issue of skirt! and there is nothing wrong with a little promo along the way, it's all about raising awareness.

Alison! I thought I had checked your blog this week but I guess I didn't. I have started doing Pilates recently too and I love it! I like it a lot better than yoga because I don't feel so much like a twisted pretzel when the class is over.

P.S. You always have the best pictures to punctuate your blog.

I don't like how anony started yelling. It makes me feel uncomfortable. Maybe I should do some pilates.

BellaFrench said...

anon could not help the yelling. it was more a factor of what she was doing at work, than hollering at bellafrench.

HAHAHAH!!!!! these comments have all the makings of terrific daytime television drama. 1. hot chick in short shorts. 2. yelling. 3. friends getting involved in the yelling. 4. mysterious "anon" character. 5. self promotion. 6. a bunch of white people. I LOVE IT.
