I receive a lot of questions about Pilates and weight loss.
It’s a hot topic and one that I love talking about.
In attempt to answer more of your questions I’ll be test-driving a new series called Q&A Wednesdays. Every few Wednesdays I’ll film a quick video answering the questions I receive from you via email or in the comments. Since many of you have similar questions I think this will help us all. 🙂
Here’s today’s question:
Before I had my two girls I used to run a lot. I did several half marathons and a marathon in 2009. I can’t say that I actually love love love running but it is nice just to put on my shoes anywhere I am and just go outside and get a good workout in. However, these days I just don’t want to run. Every once a while I’ll be able to do two or 3 miles but I just don’t want to do it as much as I used
My body is not where I would like it to be. I know I need to be doing my cardio but as a mom of two girls, a husband and a full-time job my schedule is pretty demanding.
I find Pilates and yoga to be so much more enjoyable. Do you think Pilates could be effective enough cardio for me? I know you run but I also know you do Pilates every day. You look amazing!
I don’t want to be crazy about my workouts right now because I don’t have the time. But I also know myself and if I don’t enjoy it I won’t do it.
Will Pilates help me lose weight?
I appreciate you taking the time to read this and I hope to hear back from you.
Thank you so much!
