When I started working out I shared my struggle through a blog post. Two years later & here I am thankful that I went through that phase. Starting is always the hardest thing to do while struggling to stay consistent is another thing. But I believe one needs to experience both especially if you want progress. Thankful that I persisted despite the many moments I have asked myself–why am I doing this again? Here I am still going through my fitness journey enjoying being challenged not just physically but also mentally and emotionally.
I never really thought working out can have this effect on me & I blame pilates for this. Heehee. It had lead me to be better and my wanting to be better has motivated me to just continue doing what I’m doing even if it seems far fetched or close to impossible. Looking back at when I started my fitness journey, I can say that pilates has greatly helped me in more ways than one. It has paved way for me to try other physical activities–I was able to climb a mountain, ran my first 10k, and do other kinds of workouts too.
So you ask me, does pilates work?
Yes. Yes it does.
If you’ve seen me in class during the time I was starting, you’ve probably not seen a smile on my face! Hahaha.
Here I was with Michelle Lim, a fellow pilates lover like me!
Now with Cai & Michelle. Here we are taking a break from our session with Tanya, the woman behind Onelife Studio.
If you read my Struggle Is Real blog post, you’ll see the difference in my posture. Two years of doing pilates and I can see and feel the difference it has made on my body. I can sit straight, have better posture and better disposition in life. Ay lavett! This is why I still continue doing pilates. Alternating it with different workouts help me stay fit and focused in life. 🙂
Sharing with you all my story and how #PilatesWorks for me!
