Sometimes its hard to stop!

Friday, September 25, 2009

I have made exercising and all a habit, which i am so glad i did but sometimes its hard to stop. Especially when i am not feeling my best . I still want to exercise... do that yard work.. its hard for me to sit still and rest and take care of myself. I am still working on that. I dont want to be obsessive about it.. just dont want to tell myself its ok not to exercise. and i was like that before, after i lost all my weight. So now i am feeling a bit sore and tired and my husband says its because of the fall i had on monday, and he wants me to rest and take care of me.. But there is things to do.. and i know he works so hard much more than i do.. and i want to help.. so i am resting some today so many can do more on weekend..
Life is good thou and i am so glad i made theses life style changes!

    Take care of youself. That is priority #1. It took awhile to add pounds, as it did to take it off. Now that you are there, a day of relaxing isn't going to hurt. Hope you are feeling better soon. emoticon

    I can understand the being a bit obsessive about not giving exercise a break. I don't know if you are like me that way, but in the back of my mind I feel if I don't exercise, that might be the day that whatever clicked when I started this journey will click off and I will stop doing it. I didn't take a break for 5 months, and now over the summer because of being busy I am learning it is ok to take a break, but I always know even that day, the trick is getting back to it ASAP! I don't let up on myself. If you had an injury though, you do need to make sure you don't hurt yourself further. Taking it a little easier than normal wouldn't be the worst thing till you know you are feeling your best. Congratulations on reaching your goal, you look great and I bet you feel great.

    I know exactly how it is...I have a hard time sitting still and on my appointed day of rest, I always feel guilty. However, people do deserve a break now and then so ENJOY!

    Congratulations on reaching your goal. Yes, you do have the right to take it easy. Don't overdo or you might really do damage to your body. ((HUGS)) Linda Kay
