Sorry to have dropped off the face of the web for... 2 months. Things got crazy with work, school, etc, but good news! The semester is over, I'm turning 21, and even better, all A's in all classes so far.
Though things were busy, I did manage to set up a good fitness routine, and though I haven't lost the weight I would have liked (about 5 lbs so far), the pounds are steadily dropping and the changes are ones that will stick. Over the past two months I have managed to take 3 pilates classes a week (MWF after work), and run on the treadmill for as long as I have from the time I get to the gym to the time the class starts (between 10-30 minutes).
Something is better than nothing. And though pilates isn't everyone's cup of tea (I don't enjoy it), give it a week. You WILL see a noticable diference in the definition of your abs. And come on, you know that's what you want more than anything. Not to mention the exercises can easily be repeated at home, but I do recommend trying to give yourself one month of classes to get the precise form down. Otherwise neck and back pain will become your better abs best friend.
I'll leave you with that and the video to consider. It's part of The Fun Theory, the idea that something as simple as fun is the easiest way to change people’s behaviour for the better. Imagine if this were applied to the concept of health and fitness. Would it work for you? It works for kids. Have you ever had a plate of vegetables assembled like a smiley face?
