Relax Your Way To Weight Loss

Anything worth accomplishing takes time, patience, and incremental effort, especially when the goal is a profound one. The thought of losing weight can be overwhelming. You are not sure how long the process will take, and you worry that you will not succeed. This is when it is important to think progress, not perfection.

Compare your progress towards a healthier lifestyle to taking a walk. You put one foot in front to reach your destination…you don’t arrive immediately. The same applies for the steps you’re taking now. Don’t feel discouraged that you haven’t arrived to a perfect state immediately. The important think is that you are still walking, still moving toward your goal.

Take a minute to pause, and reflect on your progress during the 5-min pilates sequence below. These poses will help clear any frustration from your mind while easing pain from your back and strengthening your abs.
