The REAL Secret

Best tip ever. I'm one of those gals who's tried evvvery diet and exercise program. And I have NEVER seen results like this. Tae Bo and/or the Atkins diet were close, but felt like EFFORT.

But Pilates...this is a lifetime change.

Here's the scoop. I've been doing Mari Winsor's DVD tapes 5 days a week for 3 weeks. I feel like a completely different person. Dropped a size. And this week, three friends gasped, called me skinny, and asked me what I was doing. It actually works, my back feels BETTER, and I don't notice the time passing while I'm doing it.

Here's the skinny:

Started on February 26th. Did the 2001 Beginning 20 minute tape, five days a week.
Second week: alternated daily between Beginning and Advanced tapes (2001 sereies). Advance tape is 50 minutes.
Third week: Ditto.

My friend/producing partner Heidi started doing Pilates in a gym five months ago...she's now down to her dream weight and only does two 20 minute workouts, twice a week at home to maintain.

Ok, so I'm desperate to improve back strength and tone up a few of the usual "girl" areas...what else do I need to get besides the tapes? Any equipment?

Nah, the two tapes are all you need! :) Isnt that great?

Kick-ass. Sigh. So I have an interview tomorrow with a pretty laid-back business...but I was going to take my little eyebrow piercing out anyway, just in case...but it appears to be stuck. I can't unscrew it. Guess I'll have to apologize and explain that I would gladly take it out if I'd known to go to a stupid parlour!

I think I got those DVD's from my sister's things after she died. She didn't have the 20 minute workout with it, but we found it at Christmas time. LOL.

Was it the Winsor Pilates Basic (3 DVD Workout Set) {Basic, 20 Minute Workout, Accelerated Body Sculpting}?

That's what I inherited from my sister.

The cover looks the same! That's it! Ah, how cool it came from your sister...
