Bootcamp Pilates

After 2 solid weeks of eating and drinking enough to feed a small country, library diva has decided to lead a healthier life.  Out goes the sweet treats and eating out, in comes the salad, the fruit and pilates bootcamp style!

Anyone who has ever thought that pilates is 'easy', 'slow' or 'girly' should try to do a pilates bootcamp.
30 minutes of high intensity cardio and core work on a saturday morning is no joke and definitely not for the hungover.  a mixture of squats, lunges, stretches, plank, core work and a nifty number which involves rolling like a ball from standing and rolling yourself back to the standing position.  Not my most elegant moment!
After the workout, i was hot, sweaty, thirsty but felt fantastic and healthier already.
It will probably take a few more weeks of frugal eating and exercise to make up for my overindulgence but at least i have made a start.

  1. I'm sure you'll enjoy them, just so long as you don't have a shouty Sergeant Major to train you up who starts every lesson with "Right you horrible little women..." ;-)
