An unexpected rest day

Today was supposed to be Workout 2 of Week 11.  But due to various reasons, I will be completing the workout tomorrow evening.  I have to say that I’m somewhat relieved.  My body is still a little sore from Monday night’s workout and my daughter decided she didn’t want to sleep last night unless Mommy was holding her.  So I’m a little bit more tired than usual.  Plus this dreary weather has put a damper on my spirits.  Where is the sunshine?!?!  Do you ever just have days when you feel all out-of-sorts?  That would be me today.  Last night while watching “The Biggest Loser” I was inspired by the transformations the contestants have made.  I especially liked seeing how fast Moses could run on the treadmill now as compared to when he first began.  That gives me hope that eventually I will get faster too.  So I’m going to enjoy the remainder of my rest day with my family and wake up with a fresh, positive attitude tomorrow morning.  Happy Wednesday!

About No More Sidelines

I am a stay-at-home mom to an adorable little girl and the wife of my soulmate. This is the life I've always dreamed of living, even though I got a much later start than I had planned. But that's ok. God knew there were lots of things I needed to experience in life before He gave me the two greatest blessings I've ever known. My heart's desire now is to become physically fit so that I can enjoy the wonderful life I have to the absolute fullest. Life is too precious and fragile to just sit by and watch. I want to participate. No more living on the sidelines for me!

    Jamie- there are days when I can BARELY make myself go to the gym, and yet when I force myself I find that I’m happier for it. But on the flipside- if I skip a workout and just sit on the couch or stay home to get all my “stuff” done, I’m happy too.

    As we get older and approach 40, our bodies are changing faster than we can keep track. However, I’ve found that if I focus on being healthy rather than developing a supermodel body, I’m much more motivated.

    Good for you to a) make the effort to be healthy and b) know your body well enough to take a break when you need it. We’re just fine, friend. I happen to think that (especially coming from Chickamauga), that our generation has the perfect balance of our mothers and grandmothers AND the 21st century. 🙂

    Enjoy this time. It goes by sooo fast…
