    Lucky me, I teach Pilates professionally, and lead about 10 group classes weekly. Of course I assist class students, and make corrections, but I demonstrate a lot of moves in those 10 hours. I also teach privates in a Pilates studio, and that too involves demonstration. I’m on the move much of the week. Additionally I walk, and power walk, whenever possible. I have knee issues, which is one reason I teach Pilates. I did it as rehab post knee surgery, and then certified to teach it 12 years ago. That’s after many years of teaching aerobics, and weight training, and starting out as a dance. I do let myself rest – that’s the day I relax, read, bask in a hot bath. There are times when all I crave for dinner is a big plate of steamed veggies – with low-fat ranch dressing on the side. Broccoli, yams, green beans, parsnips, carrots – steamed, dipped, delicious.

    I try to walk outside at least 30 minutes everyday at a nice brisk pace and uphill. In the gym with the weights 2 -3 times a week for 50 minutes and yoga once a week. OMG ! I love my food so this is a difficult question to answer. My favorite is my blended shake with blueberries, avocado, spinach, ginger, maca ! YUM.

    That is a great question! I don’t like to think of it as “working out”. I like to think of my activity as lifestyle choices that keep me healthy. Having said that, I like to do Ashtanga Yoga at least two times per week, of course I teach Pilates Mat classes three times per week, and I like to plan an outdoor activity (weather permitting) like a hike, a long walk or a bicycle ride, at least one time per week. Healthy meal? I try to make all of them healthful. But fun one is a big variety of vegetables such as shitakes, chard, onion, garlic broccoli (you get the idea..( lightly cooked in Coconut Oil) finished with red pepper and believe it or not – Almond Butter. It give it a nice Thai-type flavor!

    I do cardio (bike, walk or elliptical) for 30-45 minutes 3-5 days per week depending on my schedule. I also do weight circuit training 2 days per week. I do light stretches and modified yoga poses every morning for 15-20 minutes, and I dance for fun! My favorite healthy meal is black beans, salmon and salsa. I will often add a green salad with balsamic vinaigrette, green beans or broccoli to this meal if it is dinner. No bread!!!

    Sorry! It doesn’t state here that you were asking this question specifically to one person – I only saw that when I looked on the side menu. I wasn’t trying to throw my two cents in unsolicited, the question just pops up differently on here!! Whoops (and hope you hear from Rosie!!)

    I do cardio 5-6 days a week (45min – 1 hour), strength training 3 days a week, hopefully tennis 1 day a week….and then one day of nothing, to rest my body. I also have a Jackie Warner ab workout DVD that I love (15 minute workout, but you feel it!!). My favorite meal is breakfast, egg white omelette (i say omelette, but i haven’t perfected the flip, so it winds up more scrambled) with mushrooms, onion, & spinach (or whatever veggies I have laying around), a piece of 12 grain toast with a little bit of peanut butter & a half a banana sliced up on it. I love breakfast over any other meal!
