Has it already been 6 days since I last exercised?
Let me tell you...
I'm feeling much more refreshed after my decision to give my body a rest and...
I think it goes without saying...
I'm super happy that I chose to go through with this challenge both Nookie and I talked about during one of our runs. (We kept each other updated throughout the week in terms of how things were going, what was tough, enlightening etc..)
Not only do I feel more balanced but...
I also feel good. Really good. Overall. (SuperFit joked this morning in telling me that perhaps it's time I get back to being physical. It had nothing to do with the fact that I danced for him like a FU in our hallway...at 530 am hehe!)
**To be honest, I feel less zombie like <---we are watching The Walking Dead so the reference to zombies seems appropriate. I'm not walking around feeling tired nor grunting as I make my way up the stairs lol**
So I think it goes without saying...
This week has taught me to be...
Much more mindFUl about giving myself a break and...
Not to second guess my need to step back and breathe. A little more deeply. (And not fear the notion of resting either!)
We all need to catch our breath and cut ourselves a little slack!
Truth be told though...
I will still need reminders (as this exercise is still so new to me) because...
I love being on the move and...
I know that once I get going again (tomorrow) I won't want to stop!
|I think my sneakers missed me and I them. A little ;)|
That said (and because of that)...
I am making a promise to myself be MORE conscious about listening to my body, more profoundly! (I mean, I need to take care of my overall wellness. That is, after all, my goal. To be healthy, in every way. Both in body and mind. I owe it my overall self, really.)
So as I get back into being physical again...
I will move forward with an understanding that I need time to rest, that I need more breathers in-between and that...
By doing so...
I will be doing my body (and mind) good!
Before I go...
Here's a quick little recipe that I've been enjoying making over here on the regular as of late!
It's a tasty bowl, it's simple and it doesn't require much!
I hope you enjoy it!
