2nd day of rest......worried that I am breaking my new habits
Friday, January 08, 2010
Ok...yesterday was my rest day....but today I am just exhausted. I planned to workout today, but I had to go into work at 6am instead of 9am...and now I am completely thrown off for the day. I feel guilty about not working out today...and a little worried that I am about to "fall off the wagon" and back into my old patterns.
I am trying to do all of this during a pretty stressful time. My division at work is about to close and I am about to be laid off in March. Others are getting laid off earlier...so there are lots of happy hours, lunches and stress. Exercise has been a healthy way for me to manage this stress. There are moments when I am wanting to go the unhealthy way of Ben & Jerry's and a big bowl of pasta. But I know that I have too much riding on this. (health, reunion, ect)
So I have to accept that my body and mind need rest, not beat myself up and just get back on track tomorrow.
Wish me luck!
