Top Ten Things I Think About (at) Pilates

1. Sandwiches.

2. My hatred of the song "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun." If there were ever a song I would go on a shooting spree for, this would be it.

3. "What does she mean, lift my bellybutton toward my spine? I'm lying on the ground! There's nowhere to put my bellybutton. Everyone else is doing it! Oh god, I can't even play a sport that revolves around leg lifts and stretching."

4. If you start laughing inwardly at your inability to "stack" your spine in pilates, can anyone hear you? The answer is yes.

5. Adult human beings should not attempt anything resembling a cartwheel.

6. Ditto anything called a "swan."

7. How much I hate songs from Wicked, and why, in the name of all that is holy, they would be part of an exercise routine. I drank the haterade for Wicked and I liked it, and I will not be swayed.

8. I want nothing to do with a pelvic floor.

9. Sandwiches. Sandwiches. Pizza. Sandwiches.

10. Belly-button has a mind of its own, apparently hates spine.
