Sometimes the body says ENOUGH!

Friday, March 22, 2013

So.. yesterday, I felt yucky. The best way I can describe it is that I felt like I had a hangover.. but without the getting drunk the night before. Yeah, that sux!

I ended up taking it easy. Couldn't really work, that's how bad I felt, so took it easy, did some light work (sample files for book - released next week!). Ate a bunch of crackers. Drank tea. Water tasted bad - and I do like water.

By evening, I was feeling better. DH brought me home dinner (sushi) and it was divine! Felt a little guilty sitting all day, but I kept reminding myself how hard I worked out earlier in the week and last week. And my body reminded me that it didn't feel well. So, I did my best not to let the guilt control me.

The break was worth it. I slept like a baby and woke up happy and raring to go! I decided to go with an afternoon workout so I could just concentrate on work today. It was well worth it. I had a very nice session on the elliptical, the only downer is that my right oblique hurts.. i think i may have finally popped things back in place, but will see tomorrow. Still sore. That foam roller though - worth the money.

Tomorrow - horseback riding!! yay! I get to see my horse and get one step closer to bringing him home. Just hope I haven't forgotten everything I've learned. One of these days, I'll get to ride him *sigh*

anyway - gnight! And remember - listen to your body. A break is worth it!!

    You do need to take a rest day so you don't end up this way. So glad you are feeling better. HUGS!

    I'm a big believer in rest's essential to preventing injury and healing up. I blogged about the same thing recently
