Rest Day - Involuntary

Thursday, January 24, 2013

Yesterday started somewhat badly; I forgot to take my diabeted medication and had to turn around on my way to work to go home and take it. Luckily, my colleague covered for me for the couple of minutes until I arrived. Since I didn't take the meds with food, my stomach got upset. I was also sore from exercising the past few days.
So after running to the bathroom several times during the day, I was just happy to go home, even though by then I had a headache. I took some Tylenol and slept. It was supposed to be a nap, with swimming and doing laundry planned for later, but I didn't wake up until after midnight. I really wish there was a 24 hour gym in town, because at that point, I was rested and wanted to do something.
Oh well, I think an occasional rest day fits very well into my program. As an added bonus, I didn't have dinner, since I slept right through it, so my calorie count was very low.

    Rest days ARE good, just not all the time. Diabetes medications do tend to play havoc with the body! Have a GREAT day today!!
