Pilates Summer Series – Day #7 + a GIVEAWAY!

What did you think of yesterday’s ab workout?

Challenging huh? Don’t worry. It will get easier as you get stronger. All you have to do is keep moving forward.

Little by little, day by day. If there’s one thing I know for sure…Pilates works if you stick with it consistently.

Before we dive in to today’s workout it’s my pleasure to announce our second giveaway!

This week’s Pilates Summer Series giveaway bundle is titled “Summer Foodie” and it’s full of incredible goodies.

This week’s “Summer Foodie” Giveaway Includes:

1. A $100 gift card to Thrive Market!


Thrive Market offers the best-selling natural and organic products at wholesale prices through a $60/year membership (just $5/month). Think Costco meets Whole Foods online, and for every paid membership Thrive donates one membership to a low-income American family.

As someone who tries to buy high quality products while not spending a fortune, I have fallen in love with Thrive Market and their mission. Their prices really are the best and home delivery? Swoon.

Oh, and if you sign up using this link instead of the usual 1 month free trial you will receive TWO months free! That way you can really see if it’s something you’ll use. 🙂

2. Philsophie Superfoods Sampler Pack


You know I love Philosophie. Started by an entrepreneuer and mom, Philosophie Superfoods makes it easy to make every food a superfood. This sampler pack includes 3 plant-based, protein powders: Cocoa Magic, Berry Bliss and Green Dream. I love them all and think you will too.

3. 2 Jars of Barney Butter


All natural. All good. My generous friends at Barney Butter have offered to give away 1 jar of Barney Butter Smoothe and 1 jar of Cocoa + Coconut to one lucky, Pilates loving lady.

4. $25 Gift Card to Savannah Bee Honey


Savannah Bee carries everything from artisanal honey to hand cream and body butter. I love their products and I’m sure you will too!

5. “Fresh Start Program” from Suja Juice


Organic. Non-GMO. Cold-Pressed. Suja juices are delicious and nutritious. They’ve kindly offered to give away a 3 day Core Essentials Fresh Start Program that includes enough fresh juice for a full 3 day cleanse (18, 16 oz bottles). This is a big package!

6. Barnana Chewy Banana Snacks


These yummy snacks are high in potassium and satisfying when you need a little treat. Non-GMO, gluten free, raw and vegan!

Let’s workout…

Today we’re sculpting long, lean legs with a special focus on the inner thighs.

Remember to focus on lengthening your body throughout the entire series. Draw your waist in, lengthen the neck and breathe, no matter what body part you’re focusing on. Pilates should always be complete coordination of body and mind.

Today’s Check-In: See giveaway details above. I hope you win!
