Day 2 – The pilot to Real PilatesLike0

My second day session with Delinda at Real Pilates Studios was back to basics, with a bum and thigh twist. The main aim of the session was for me to reconnect with the 5 basic principles of Pilates, while finding out my strengths and weaknesses. The reason Real Pilates Studios has proposed Delinda on my first sessions is because she is known to be the right person to train with if you are focusing on weight loss, shaping hips & thighs and nutrition.

The fun element comes next as we take that analysis, stepping through the weeks and climb the ladder of intensity, in order tone, shape and make those scales become “your friend”.

“I love your shape and know that with dedicated time I will shape it, strengthening the core but giving that bum, the lift. ”

You can imagine how my face expression changed, knowingly that I would need to quote her on that for everyone to read!

“With passion comes many things and I can tell that you are passionate about this challenge.” Now THAT was just perfect and just like that my smile was right back! To be fair, today was a good session. I was nervous at first, but I did find myself up to the challenge and focusing a lot. Trying to breath in the good and out the bad. I can tell Delinda was trying really hard to make my session count as much as possible. We went a bit overtime but that only meant good for me! I left feeling determined, ready and all juiced up for our next session tomorrow with Elisha on the Pilates Core class at the Palm Strip studio!

  • One of the very few images in @joalimaldives that I saved on laptop before my memory card on my drone got completely corrupted and wiped out everything. 💆🏼 Note to self: Sh** happens 🐠 ☀️
  • She has a thousand things to say to you... and a thousand reasons not to 💫
  • It’s a fact that I struggle with words often face to face, because strong feelings can all be inside me but only left for me to feel them... It is not that the meaning cannot be explained... But there are certain meanings that are lost the moment they are explained in words, and that’s how, without any pressure, I’ve learned to take it all in... 💫
  • Are you a beach villa or a water-villa person?
Each water villa at @joalimaldives has a 35sqm pool (Apart from the ocean residence which have two pools like this one!)
Happy Sunday from the happiest island! ♥️
  • A wish you were here kind of day 💫
@joalimaldives
  • Maldives is a beautiful paradise but has a fragile ecosystem that plays a role to keep the magic alive. The construction at JOALI Maldives @joalimaldives was designed to build around the trees, to save as many as possible. They saved over 1000 trees and work so passionately on sustainability. 🐠 It’s very close to my heart that we constantly support and value our ocean especially the marine life ♥️
  • I love to introduce you to JOALI Maldives. @joalimaldives 
A brand new island that stands out because it has built its’ whole identity on ‘Joie de vivre’ which constitutes the art of living... really, truly living life, embracing it fully. Whether you call it living in the moment, or self fulfillment, joie de vivre is a quality and a feeling we can all learn to acquire. Say hello to the beautiful and unique @joalimaldives
  • It’s just who she is, a little entertainer, especially when I ask her to look at the camera so we can take a ‘subtle’ shot... but nope, instead, she breaks into her dance moves and I thought... why the hell not... and just took the picture. ♥️
  • One of the most beautiful places I’ve been to, Madeira Island 🌴 - An Island 2 hours away from Lisbon by plane! Have you ever been?
  • A year ago today I was in Cambodia 🇰🇭 💫
So much growth from where I was and where I am today, but I’ll always remember where I started. 
I’m curious to know, which was the first photograph you remember of me since you started following my journey?
  • A new week in the UAE and my last before being back on the road! It’s been a great break from flying but I think I’m ready to get back out there with my camera! 
Happy Sunday everyone! Kick ass in whatever you are doing today! ♥️
  • Who is coming with me!? We just released new dates for @travelwithtjd for 2019 and I am overwhelmed with your responses!! There is a power in disconnection and I find it right here! I now count the days to go back to Finland and everywhere in Scandinavia. 
Click the link in bio and join our Adventure Travel Movement in Finland in March 2019! Spaces are very limited 😊 and it’s an adventure of a lifetime in the most authentic way!! ♥️
