Several factors came together to make yesterday and today rest days :) Yesterday was my darling daughter's birthday and I spent the day with her. As a single mom, if I don't do it, it doesn't get done.. so it was up to me to make her day as special as I could. I was also having signs from my body that I was pushing a bit too hard for where I am at this moment. I've been short-changing my sleep a bit too here and there, so I crashed last night and slept like a baby. I even reset my alarm this morning so I could sleep in. I have packed a healthy breakfast / snack / lunch for the workday and am hoping to work in some upper body and core strength training today. I have been routinely working my legs / butt while neglecting the upper side haha so I thought while I was "resting" the lower, I'd switch it up and ease back in by working the upper. The good news is... it's almost Friday!!! Although darling daughter is headed to dad's this weekend, so I'm going to be missing her, I find I'm very productive when she's not here as I try to fill the void by staying busy which is good for my fitness goals and my house that's needing attention.
