Five days into the 21 Day Challenge! I have scheduled workouts at Rivercity on Sundays, but have found it a bit of a challenge to get in a second class day with my schedule. No worries, I got in a 20 minute Pilates workout at home yesterday. I think this is a great addition to my cardio and strength training. I have to say my abs were a bit sore after Sunday's workout. I love it and I'm looking forward to class this Sunday!

I was recently asked to describe my workouts. I kinda liked what I put together and I thought that maybe there are more people not quite sure what a workout with me might include. My workouts are bootcamp style where we all work hard but there is no barking of instruction, I just don't have that in me.
