I woke up this morning wondering what I was going to do today. I wasn’t overly energetic so I took my time crawling out of bed. My 16 year-old came into my room around 8:00 to tell me she was going to go to the YMCA for a cycling class which started at 9:15.
I decided that if she could get up and go workout, I would too. When I looked at the schedule of classes offered, I discovered that there was a Reformer Pilates class beginning at 9. I’ve never attended a class of regular Pilates, not alone Reformer Pilates, but I thought I would try. My daughter decided to join me instead of going to the cycling class, which made me happy.
All I can say is wow. This class worked every part of my body. As I write this, I am starting to hurt, especially my tailbone. Although it was a hard class for me, I will be going back. If I can do that workout a couple of times per week, I should be in pretty good shape. It really is a strengthening class if you ask me.
So we came home and my friend Jeff came over with some homegrown tomatoes and peppers for us. That made us happy. I cut up a fresh sweet mango for him to taste and we ate the fruit while catching up on life. It was a nice morning.
Then I took daughter #1 and #3 school supply shopping. Whew, there was a lot of stuff to buy. We also shopped for school clothes for the youngest. We did a pretty good job and got a lot done (and spent too much).
When we got back, I finished the laundry and then made homemade pizza for dinner. Yum. Yum. Yum. We then decided to take the dog a walk in downtown Granville. It was a perfect evening for a walk.
For someone who had no plan for the day, I was very productive. It felt good. It was a day of zen.
