Continuing my fitness drive, I booked a Saturday class at Garuda Pilates. To be honest I was very close to cancelling, but for once the children were sleeping in and the dog had gone back to bed.
Also it was pouring with rain, it is amazing how the sun can shine all week and the minute it hits Saturday its back to grey skies . I don’t know if it was the spray tan, the results of which you can see below in a gorgeous photo taken by my daughter Luella but I felt energized and headed out.
I have been going to Garuda Pilates for years and they have seen me through two pregnancies and cronic back problems . For the first time ever for me, I was looking forward to exercise and have more or less managed to exercise regularly. I am in better shape now at fourty four than in my twenties and that is down to Garuda. The main difference for me, is that the quality of the teaching is suberb but at the same time, they don’t take themselves too seriously and are flexible and aware how the constraints of work and family.
I felt alive after my class with Marta, Anthony and I have been trying to fit in a class together at the weekend. It is a lovely way to spend some quality time with your other half.
This wont stop me celebrating tonight off to watch the football at a friends house. I will be wearing a black playsuit I bought from Mango, it is silk and super comfortable.
