monday morning lovely to you my darlings.
tell me you made happy on your weekend endeavors.
i spent the bulk of my weekend, and will be spending the next 8, in the pilates studio continuing my next training.
good grief, i am silly sore.
but mostly from laughing. i’m sure we could bust this certification in half if we all would just stop talking and giggling, but i know it wouldn’t be nearly as fun.
here’s a glimpse of my weekend nonsense:
the saturday antics have begun! danielle and i begin our sport’s illustrated photo sesh plank-pose style.
we work our way around the studio using different props and poses, angles and lighting.
camera-shy jaime hides in the back….
hijinks and folly aside, there is a ton of work to do….AND memorize.
post class i’m off for my grande drip and flash card drills. i attempt to commit the new material to memory until the dinner bell rings.
sunday morning i manage a little hh time, where my new mary jo matsumoto bag gets to come out and play.
i couldn’t resist the newport harbor soft tote. it just screamed take me! take me!
sunday afternoon it was back to the studio for more transverse abdominus and tomfoolery.
five and a half hours of doing the same 10 exercises over and over and over again can make a group of six go patty hearst.
thank god for nail polish….again mary jo matsumoto….
it’s amazing what a strong core can allow one to do…..i watched a girl curl up, twist to the right, AND paint her nails!?
and the true reinforcements:…….candy chocolate covered peanuts from sprouts.
although my back feels like it needs a permanent brace, it was truly a weekend happy.
tell me m’loves what rang your jolly bell this weekend?
Katie, I am still energized from Tom Shadyac's first coffee talk in Venice.I met him and got to meet other people that are as inspired, motivated and ready to start doing something as I am. I know that you saw his documentary "I AM" and were very inspired by it that's why I'm sharing this with you. I will let you know when the next one will be. and keep having fun while getting your certification 🙂
Excited you are carrying your new bag!!! I have joined the Naked at the Beach brigade finally (after wearing every other shade)…the fact that you are getting into even better shape is slightly depressing though–how will I ever catch up? Not to mention all the new torture you will be bringing to class…
xoxo Mary Jo
