28 Days of Pilates {I'm doing it!}

I was scrolling through my Instagram feed when I saw that a blogger, Shelby, was participating in something called #28DaysofPilates. I've always been a little apprehensive about Pilates because it just sounds challenging, am I right? Yet this challenge seemed like a great way to stay active during this month.

 Robin Long of The Balanced Life  is doing 28 Days of Pilates on her blog and sharing short Pilates workout videos (for free) every day this month! Such a sweet deal, and comforting for people like me who aren't great at Pilates and don't want to be embarrassed at a fitness class.

 I started a little bit late, but now I'm all caught up after doing the first 3 workouts last night. My roommate agreed to do the workouts with me, and I really appreciated having her there. The workouts are short, but challenging. I'm already feeling the burn. I haven't had a super consistent workout routine in place for 2014, so this came right on time. I love having structured and diverse workouts, and this will be perfect!

If you decide to join, let Robin know by including #28DaysofPilates in your Instagram or Twitter post!

Thank you for doing this, Robin! I'm looking forward to the rest of the month!!

Catch up by doing the following workouts first or start with today's workout.

After our workout, Alexandria and I snacked on this yummy fruit blend of 3 bananas and a handful of blueberries. It was the perfect post-workout sweet (clean) treat! (This is my favorite, and the easiest fruit blend - I usually add a few ice cubes too)

The final product, yum!

Have you ever tried Pilates? If so, what'd you think?
