Pilates, Run, Eat, Rest, Repeat

We made it to another weekend.  It’s Saturday, and what a busy week it seems like it’s been!  I have a long weekend this weekend with our Martin Luther King Jr. holiday on Monday, which works out well, because today I’ve been going non-stop so far.  I’ve just now had a chance to sit down, relax, and type up a post for the day.  I might need another day this weekend just to rest and relax!

1-16-15 nike-fitbitSo, as promised, I did get a bit of a workout in yesterday since I already used up my rest day earlier this week.  I did a 2 mile run yesterday evening after I got home from work and ate my dinner.  It felt pretty good.  I also nearly got my 10,000 steps in on my fitbit yesterday, with a total of 44 very active minutes.  All in all, it was a good day, and really this has been a pretty good week.

I ended up working through lunch yesterday with something I really had to get done before the day was over, so I had to get some type of fast-food I could get quickly and bring back to the office.  I opted for a Subway 6 inch Italian BMT on flat-bread with some Baked Lay’s potato chips.  And of course, dinner was another super-yummy delicious stir-fry.  I could eat stir-fry every single day, I swear.  It’s so good.  I eat one at least twice a week!!

I’ll probably be going to the gym here in about an hour or so to get a good workout in for the day.  Today is Fat-Burn Focus on the Blogilates workout calendar, so I’ll probably skip those workout videos today and just push myself with some treadmill cardio, and of course get in my #30DayFlatAbs Challenge.  I’m up to 42 reps of each of the 5 moves now.  It’s getting intense!
