Am I listening to my body? Or am I finding excuses?

Thursday, April 10, 2014

I'm still not feeling well. In fact, my cold is coming to it's peak soon. It's mostly a head cold.

I usually don't let a cold keep me from getting out there and getting it done.

But today I'm wondering.

Am I listening to my body? Or am I letting my laziness talk me out of doing what I need to do today?

On my schedule for today:
spin class
bellyfit flow
taking one client for lunch
taking another client to yoga this evening.

Lots of fitness.

But I'm debating not going to the first two. For a few reasons
This cold is getting stronger
I don't want to share this bug
I'm already struggling to breathe
Yesterday my lungs hurt, today they still ache - is it a good idea to push?

I KNOW getting out there and doing what I need to do helps me feel better. But is my body telling me to rest today?

I just ate my breakfast, and took my allergy pill, and some coldFX. I think I'm going to relax and let my body decide if I should go or not. Right now, I'm leaning towards not. If nothing else, I am at least not spreading these germs around.

Decision made. I'm now struggling to clear crap from my lungs. Rest day today.

    I can so relate - the "not-feeling-good" becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy, and now I'm in pure panic mode as I'm staring down our Big Cycling Event in a little over 3 wks!!!?? Yet going out there & killing myself won't help build me up; I'm better off w/a couple of moderate sessions today & trying to stay on DIET plan...

    Listen to your body!!! Not spreading the bug is important, but so is rest, you can get right back to it when you're feeling better. Hope it's soon!
