Pauleen Luna Sotto resumes her fitness journey five years since her last gym workout.
But other than losing weight, her main goal is to be healthy for her family.
The wife of Vic Sotto tries her hand at pilates, which, according to MayoClinic.org, is "a method of exercise that consists of low-impact flexibility and muscular strength and endurance movements."
What does it feel to work out again?
Her Instagram caption reads, "Survived my first pilates session! I can’t even remember the last time i worked out. And even though there is 'mom guilt' when i spend me time, i think it is also important that i look after my health, especially now that i have my own family.
"This feeling of being in workout clothes is so unfamiliar but truth be told, 5years is a loooooong time and i missed it! I pray to have the strength to continue this. For myself and for my family."
Apparently, her daughter Tali has also shown interest in Pilates.
Look, she seems to enjoy her session on the reformer, a popular Pilates equipment...
...while her mom admits, "...struggle is real."
Even if she is clad in a dress, Tali shows that she's a competitive fitness buddy.
Back to Pilates, Pauleen says it's a good routine for those who are lazy to work out. She is "addicted."
The host-actress also realizes that doing something she enjoys makes her "give more" to the people she loves.
She writes, "...I’ve always been so lazy to work out, also, cos i used to think that there are far more important things i can do than just work out. I was right, and wrong, too. I never realized how important it is to take care of myself cos i was always busy taking care of others, which i LOVE, btw.
"And now, i realized that it doesn’t necessarily mean that i love my family less when i take care of myself! As a matter of fact, i feel like i give them more because i am happy! Hahaha WHO AM I! I cannot believe that working out makes me happy (people who know me know how much i dread going to the gym!!!) Anyhow, i am just so glad that i have finally found a work out that makes me so happy inside and out!
"Cheers to a stronger mommy Pau!
"Okay, now back to Tali."
