Trying to fit in a rest day....

Monday, October 05, 2009

My Pilates instructor has yelled at me for it, my personal trainer has yelled at me for it, and I am feeling the effects of ignoring it. What? Not taking a rest day.

This week it's been hard to think about a rest day. The championships are coming up, and the better I look because the weight is coming off, the more I hate to take a day off. Fear, fear of slipping into the old, lazy, lumpy me.

Now logically, I understand that just taking one rest day a week isn't going to automatically doom me to falling into the "old" me. But emotionally, it's different. I guess I'm still emotionally fragile about this, and I don't want to start over.

So, when will I take a rest day this week? I don't know. I need to do it before Friday when DH and I go on our anniversary trip. But tomorrow I have a workout in the pool with Karen, and the afternoon is the barn. Wednesday is a possibility, but Thursday is out. Guess I'll have to "X" out Wednesday then.

But the progress is happening, and Saturday and Sunday I was able to ride the whole lesson and not feel like I was going to die after. So the work pays off! I just have to find a way to give myself days off. After all, Falcao gets his days off!
