I apologise to those of you who are not dog lovers, because my recent blogs have been dominated by stories and or pictures of Toby. But I have received so much feedback from viewers asking for more pictures etc, because they have loved watching him grow from the pre-Christmas bundle of fluff.
My Pilates aero arrived today and it took only a few minutes to have it up and running – that’s a bad choice of phrase actually. The main reason I decided to get one was because I had been advised against running on hard surfaces.
Using the 'spring board' facility of the machine, I can burn calories and tone muscles without anywhere near the impact on my back, plus Marjoleine Brugman has convinced me (as well as countless hundreds of thousands around the globe) of the benefits of improving or maintaining core body strength.
So, now I have no excuses and cannot ever again say on air "I must get one of these".
For those interested, I will keep you updated as to my progress but in the meantime I’d love to hear from anyone who has an inspiring Pilates story. I could perhaps share it with teh viewers next time I present a Pilates show.
Regarding the pictures, I have advised Toby that smoking is bad for him!
See you soon
