I gave myself permission to have an off day today. Why is this worth blogging about, you might ask? Well, in the past (45+ years) this would be my downfall. I am an all or nothing gal! Well, I USED to be that way! lol
I gave myself permission to take the day off from hard exercise. Hard exercise for me is probably nothing for most folks. I am eating right for the day though. I just am not going out of the house to workout for an hour in the pool or at the gym, today.
It feels good! I am also looking forward to tomorrow and getting back on track. I think, giving one's self permission to take a break is a good thing! As long as it doesn't lead to days off, this is not a bad thing. For someone learning a new lifestyle, like myself, it is like a mental vacation. Tomorrow, vacation will be over and I look forward to getting back to 'the program'!
I am NOT giving myself permission to quit. No way. No how! I have worked for eight months on this new life of mine. There is no way I feel like giving up. In the past I would have. The past has passed though. I am living towards my future! :)
