Due to the business trip I only attended one pilates class this week and that was because I switched to a different day and time. I found the lunchtime class fully booked and wouldn’t want to regularly attend at that time.
I also was able to fit in an hour of treadmill time during the trip. The hotel had the best fitness room I’ve seen in a hotel. I loved the individual TV and ability to connect the treadmill to my smartphone. Over the week, I earned 34 activity points which is a new all-time personal record.
We are getting ready for a week with our grandson starting Saturday so we’ll have to make smart food choices and keep on track with exercise. No matter what, I’ll start my morning with breakfast each day.
