What do you do when there are two different ways you want to treat yourself that conflict with each other? I'll do what most empty nest people would do...I think I'll flip a coin to decide!
Heads it's taking a Pilates class at Sommet Fitness; tails it's a venti caramel frappaccino at Starbucks. Both choices are sweet but in very different ways:
Pilates Class Sweetness:
Angella is the teacher/trainer and she makes you feel good and happy;
I want to lose weight and pilates really targets the places on my body that need help;
After the hour-long session, I feel calm and relaxed;
You get to listen to great tunes while you are working out;
Going to pilates on a regular basis is good for my overall health situation.
Very tasty, delicious caramel flavor;
Reminds me of the good ol' days when my daughter and me would go up together and enjoy this drink and its 600 calories (or whatever the count actually is);
Can bring my dog with me and sit on the patio.
Now you see my dilemma? In a perfect world, I'd go to my Pilates training session, pick up Wrigley and head over to Starbucks for a treat. But, then I'd never lose the weight I REALLY want to lose. Right now I am focused on myself for once, so....
HOPE IT'S HEADS!
