Winsor Pilates?

I've fallen off the Six Week Body Makeover (6WBMO) already! I lasted a whole one week and a bit. Yes I lost weight. Yes I feel a bit better... but I'll never be able to sustain the "way of life" as people call it for longer than 2-3 weeks at most! It was very restrictive in terms of salt (no salt), fat (no fat), sugar (no sugar)... you get the idea. Was able to eat things like potatoes and rice though! But the mix of having protein and fruit in the morning for me was just not doable. The support forums at Provida are great and have lots of recipes but it just wasn't achieveable... especially the 5 meals a day.

So now, I have learnt that smaller portions are enough to satisfy me, I'm continuing my water intake but have started adding back some of the things which were no nos: salt(but definitely in moderation), milk (only in tea / coffee), yoghurt. Tried to avoid wheat/flour based products.

But a friend has put me onto Winsor Pilates, so I'll give that a go and see what happens. I'm good with exercise videos as I just do them in the morning before work and that works well. Still waiting for it as I ordered it last Sunday and it has yet to arrive. Really think these type of motivational things should be shipped out ASAP as momentum gets lost... maybe one day the Internet and TV Shopping companies will learn.

Oh one thing I did buy as part of the 6WBMO preparation was a Magic Bullet Blender. They are really really really fabulous. We use them for smoothies and grinding things. Quick and very easy to clean!

It's been a while, and I can definitely recommend the program. But you only need the first two videos. I do the circle one but find the other 'original' ? one more difficult. Maybe I can work up to it? Getting it in 3 times a week is difficult but usually get to do it 2 times a week.
