Well, here we are again…it’s Monday. What a fast weekend!
Our weekend was pretty laid back. We had no official plans on the agenda. Other than some cooking and a visit from Justin’s mom, we literally had nothing going on. It actually was a very relaxing and peaceful few days. We’re also having some fantastic weather here in NJ and this weekend was certainly no exception, so lots of time was spent outdoors.
So, since this weekend was pretty uneventful, I thought today would be a good day to link-up with the ladies at Fit.Fun.Femme for some Target Practice to share an update about my foot and to set some new goals for the week.
I have yet to get my MRI. There’s been issues with the insurance company so needless to say, its been a big pain in the neck. In the meantime, I’m still rocking my boot; although, my foot is definitely getting better. :-) The pain is quite minimal at this point; although, it’s still on the tender side when I press on the area. So, my goal for this week is to continue to take it easy as much as possible and continue to heal. Hopefully, I’ll here something about my MRI, but at this point, I’m not going to sweat it. The treatment would still be the same and I’m seeing improvement, which I’m really happy about.
I’m still working out 5 days a week, but I’m continuing my focus on mat workouts and some upper body training. Pilates has been my workout of choice. I have a few pilates DVDs from a number of years ago that I’ve been doing, but I’m not really of fan them. They’re pretty outdated and I don’t care for the instructor, so after some online searching, I purchased the Element: Total Body Pilates Kit with Mini-Ball.
I’ve only done it twice so far, but I’m definitely liking it. I’ll be doing a full review on it in the near future, but for now my plan is to combine this workout with some upper body strengthening this week, and all also throw some additional ab work in there too.
Clean eating is a definite priority for this week.
Honestly, last week was not so good in the eating department. I was eating a lot of leftovers from our Labor Day BBQ and I also went out to eat several times. So this week, I plan to get back on track and focus on lots of fruits/veggies, lean meats and limit my carb intake, which was through the roof last week.
What are your goals for this week?
Do you enjoy pilates workouts?
