Fitness Friday – The body is talking to me
I will be honest, I don’t have much to talk about today as my body has been telling me to take it easy this past week. Between being a Mom, working, blogging and trying to have a social life, I have over programmed myself these past few weeks. Things were starting to catch up with me and the body was complaining.
This past week, I still made it to the gym twice and was eating mostly healthy so it wasn’t a complete loss. However, it was pretty evident that I needed to slow things down by Wednesday. I woke up with an ear infection and upset stomach. When my body needs a break, there is no subtle hints, it tells me loud and clear.
Making sure I stay on track and getting my exercise in, drinking lots of water to stay hydrated, making wise food choices and getting quality sleep are key. Sure this all sounds good in theory but I need to make sure I actually do it.
I know with the holidays quickly approaching, I need to listen to my body and get the rest that I need now so that I am not sick then. It doesn’t mean that I am going to live like a hermit and not do anything, I am just going to make sure that I am being much more cognizant of what my body needs and wants. It’s always so hard to stay on track during this time of year and I know that I won’t even be remotely perfect, but I am going to really make an effort this year.
The New Year is always a fresh start for a lot of people. And this year it will be for me as well. There are a few changes I already know that are coming my way and I am looking forward to them!
