Strengthen Your Core With Pilates For Dancers DVD

I have been compensated in the form of a gift card/money/coupon and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. All opinions expressed are mine and honest in nature.

I've had several running injuries throughout the years, and most of them have been related to my lack of core strength. And I will be the first to tell you that I pretty much hate working my core.

But I know the importance of having a strong core, so I'm trying to make core work a staple in my routine. And Pilates for Dancers is one or the most comprehensive step by step Pilates DVDs that I have ever seen.

If you were looking for a fast-paced rush and get it done Pilates workout, this DVD is not for you. Instead this DVD is a step by step methodical, instructional, absolutely awesome demonstration, controlled work out. I am by no means an expert on Pilates. But I do know that with most exercises I have a tendency to rush the poses to pretty much just hurry up and get it done. It's my nature. It's my personality. It's just who I am which is probably why I truly do not enjoy strength training and ab work. 

But the Pilates For Dancers DVD is filled with controlled Pilates movements. I could not rush through the movements. I learned correct positioning and how to control each motion. Even Lil Man got in on the action. Because the instructions were told step-by-step, he too was able to follow along and do some Pilates with me this morning.

I would consider the Pilates For Dancers DVD to be a comprehensive Pilates workout if you watch it from start to finish.

This DVD also has scene selection so you can choose certain exercises if you don't want to do the entire DVD. Overall I am extremely pleased with the Pilates For Dancers DVD.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Running My Life

Wow, has it really been 2 years since my last post? I suppose that I allowed life to get in the way. For any faithful blog readers, I apologize. Although, I'm not sure how many people actually read blogs anymore. I think most people use other social media platforms.  (By the way, drop by and say hi on Insta. )  But for some reason, each year when I pay for my google domain, I can't seem to let it go. As silly as it sounds, this little space is mine. And lately I've been struggling with ownership and acceptance. And my domain renewal was a not so gentle reminder that I have a voice .  Seriously, you'd think by 48 that I'd have this figured out - nope - apparently not. However, I am wise enough to know that we have a choice to allow situations to harms us or make us stronger. I'm choosing to let this mid-life quandary make me stronger. And because of this, I'm setting goals, taking charge, and reexamining priorities.  Movin' on... 

Self Care Is Not Selfish It's Necessary

It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. And I'll say it just one more time in case you didn't hear me. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. I have found through experience that when I'm not taking care of myself, not only do I suffer but my family suffers. So ditch the mom guilt and take the time that you need! I have a tendency to keep pushing my needs aside until I reach a breaking point. We've had a very busy fun summer so far. However, I've struggled to get some quality ' me ' time to decompress. I'll spare you the meltdown that ensued. But the reality check that followed prompted me to take action.

When The Planner In You Must Be Flexible

In case you haven’t figured this out by now, I’m a planner. I know - shocker right?!? :) So although I love substitute teaching, it’s making the planner in me anxious. And it’s been reeking havoc on my workouts. Basically the morning of or maybe the night before, I find out if I’m working. So my day ( that I thought I had planned ) can be turned upside down in an instant. But, truthfully, isn’t that really the same with everyone?
