But with Pilates, I've noticed a big difference in my body even after just a week and five days. For example, I'm a lot more flexible than I was to begin with. I can touch my toes, when before, I could barely reach passed my knees and my stomach is a lot stronger. I can actually do sit ups now (with my hands behind my head) without having anyone hold my feet down (thought they do lift up a little, as to be expected at this point).
But this, for me, is really motivating. It means that I'm doing something right and I'm not sure if this has anything to do with the exercising but I have lost six pounds in the last two weeks or so and if it continues, I'll know Pilates is helping out in that respect.
As for Dance Dance Revolution, if you want to work up a good sweat and you have a Playstation or a Playstation 2, I really recommend this game. I have the game pads at home, which you can buy online or at a game store, usually, and they plug into my station just as a controller would. It's really fun and challenging at the same time. It's great!
These are my updates, so far. I'll continue to post the changes Pilates has with me over the next few weeks.
