Give me permission...finding a balance
Ugh...the begining of my week was phenomenal, but now I'm PMSing and I feel like crap! My run yesterday morning was weak and this morning it turned into a short walk - I mean at least I did something that is more than I would have done before, but I'm going out of town for 3 days (3 days of restaurant eating - ugh) and I wanted to get some good workouts in before I went. I'll have access to a great running trail while I'm there so that is good and if I start TOM today I should feel better tomorrow, but why am I beating myself up so much? I mean I exercise 7xs a week and sometimes my body just needs a rest and that is ok (especially durning TOM!). I really need to nip this in the bud, I need to find balance. 7xs a week is fine, but when you beat yourself up for things out of your control or are exercising when you clearly don't feel well...that is just not good...For those of who are turning into exercise/health nuts like me how do you find a balance?
I just feel icky...TOM I hate you!
