Day 21 of Firsts: Hang Upside Down Pilates Style

22 Jan

I have to exercise in the morning before my brain figures out what I’m doing. ~Marsha Doble

So, I’m pretty excited about this First. There’s something exhilarating about hanging upside like you’re a kid on the monkey bars.  In the adult world it’s apparently called Pilates on an apparatus called the “Cadillac”.  Bernadette Giorgi makes it look so easy. I assure you, it’s not.

Sorry about my upside down camera work.  All I have to say is Bernadette is 46 years old! (she told me I could tell you)  Seriously, if this is what Pilates does for you, I’m inHere is my valiant attempt at grace while defying gravity .
By the end of the year, I swear I’m going to be able to do the Bernadette move.  A wonderful new challenge.  I’ll keep you updated on my progress.

    So many things have surprised me. I loved talking to a stranger. I really liked the gymnastics of Pilates and am taking it on. i like when other people get involved in it too…the bridge toll day, joke day, dessert day.
