Hint: Your workout will be better if you try on a bridesmaid dress first

Especially if you get stuck in the first bridesmaid dress because it is too small.  The woman at the boutique gave me a 4, I got stuck, and then she gave me a 10.  Wow.

Lunchtime Pilates

Kristen McGee and Equinox Soho. I found the last spot in the corner, and it was all very graceful, not excruciatingly hard, and ideal for the midday time slot. While we were doing some form of core clenching exercise, a woman behind me let out a significant fart. This caused the tatoo'd man in tights next to me to start giggling uncontrollably, along with his neighbor.

Figure Skaters

Johnny Weir Does Pilates and Loves Foot Massages

In case you slept through the Olympics, or, more important, missed the recent New York magazine story, Johnny Weir is a figure skater. He's the flamboyant, "dancerly" American who wears feathers and who did not win the gold medal at Vancouver. Lagging the story just a little, Gawker.TV has today posted several home videos of campy Johnny talking about his Pilates practice, his orgasmic foot massage machine, and about how he's not getting enough action. Were these taken before or after the Games? Hard to say, just as it's hard to say they're 100% authentic. Still, figure skating junkies and South Park script writers should check them out....

Workout

ARE MY ABS RIPPED YET, OR IS THAT JUST MORE CELLULITE?

Power 90 Sweat Phase 1 --- harder than Fat Burner, only because the pace is faster, and dang, the man likes plyo. Plyo is probably my worst thing (besides anything involving upper body strength, like planks and pushups). Oh well. The goal here is to get stronger, right?

"Plan" is to do a TRX session today in hopes of making me feel better about calling today a 'workout'

"Do Not Stand on Bosu"

So what does every instructor and trainer make you do? Stand on the frakking bosu.

Six months ago, pilates kicked my ass. Now, pilates has become a great warmup for ab blast and chisel'd.

Workout

30 minutes of unplugged cardio – not 30 hours!

Yikes! When I entered my 30 minutes of swimming into the unplugged cardio feat counter it said I'd accompli-ed the feat – but not so! I don't want anyone to think I am a cheater – I am just a sloppy reader and didn't realize it counted in hours and not minutes.

Monkey, Frog and Mongoose, oh my.

I think Pilates done well and correctly with a teacher who is passionate about the practice can be an amazing thing. 10 years ago, when no one had heard of Pilates, I studied with a mean little woman who learned from a Joseph Pilates protege, and while I didn't like her, she was amazingly precise and helped me over come some serious body issues.
