There are times I overdo it, all on my own-- and other times stuff comes up at work or whatever and I end up overdoing it without particularly intending to.
And the advice you've gotten so far is right on-- take some time off. I like to use some of that "rest time" in a way that still feels like I'm doing something constructive toward my healthy lifestyle-- like entering a couple of my recipes into the recipe calculator here on Spark. Or making over an old, not so healthy recipe. Or meal planning or going through a couple of the fitness magazines that have piled up around here because I'm too busy to read them. Or reading some articles here on Spark about healthy choices. You get the idea. I'm resting but I'm still doing something that contributes to this lifestyle change.
And if I feel up to it, a nice little walk around the block. And if not, a nap. : )
