Since I mentioned I started taking pilates I thought I would find a pic of one of the pieces of equipment I use called the Cadillac. And no, that is not me in the picture! I look forward to my pilates work out every week because I feel like my body has been streched and massaged of all stress and tension. But make no mistake, it is hard work! My abs and the rest of my "powerhouse" (lower back and rear) feel the pain the next day.
