Overdid it

Sunday, April 14, 2013

Well guys, my goals have been a bust since Thursday. I decided to take a rest day because I could feel myself getting worn out. Wednesday walk left me feeling dizzy so I decided that was a sign. I didn't listen soon enough, and Friday morning found me feeling winded, dizzy and absolutely zero energy. Grocery shopping was a disaster needing to take many breaks. Saturday was an emotional breaking point for me, I just couldn't tolerate anything. 6 in the evening I decided to lay down and read instead of picking fights with my family. I stayed in bed until 8:30 this morning, and I still feel utterly drained. I need to really remember to acknowledge my body's signals and take it slower than I was. I am not giving up, but I have some resting to do before I can jump back in.

    Well, at least you know now what signs to be aware of!

    With luck, you'll be a bit better by morning!

    Oh, I can really identify with this.

    I wore myself out overdoing it, too. I'm taking a break myself. So I understand.

    Yes, I think we both need to start listening to our bodies better. I just figured mine was a lazy so and so, so what did it know? Lol. Obvious, it knew better than I did.

    Sorry you were/are feeling so bad. Good idea, laying down and reading. I do that too, pick fights with people, when I feel bad. It never ends well.

    Get better soon! Take my mom's advice to me: get some rest. =)
