Feeling the guilt...

Wednesday, May 01, 2013

I know in my head it is stupid but why do I feel guilty anyway???? I have not been able to do my usual exercise (thankful I am between challenges) due to a cold/bronchial thing and I feel like I should be able to push myself to do it anyway. I have done a total of 40 minutes today versus my usual 120 minutes and I was exhausted from that. My body says slow down and rest and I am trying to do that. I just need to get over the guilt!

    Slow down. Listen to your body. You know to do it. And you know you shouldn't feel guilty. One thing I haven't been as good about recently as I would like is that when I can't exercise, I need to change my fitness tracker so that my calories are in line with my activity. Do that and maybe your guilt will go away! Hope so!! -Marsha

    ExOrcise that guilt rather than exErcize it! If you get worse you will lose a lot more than a few days of workouts. Just eat lighter (which you are probably already doing). emoticon emoticon

    Save the guilt for when you do not take care of yourself! Rest and get better soon.

    There is no guilt in taking care of yourself. That means getting the right amount of rest and exercise for how you today. Today you need more rest because your body is working hard to recover emoticon . Another day it will be more exercise emoticon . Be kind to yourself. emoticon
