I'm out of shape.

I shouldn't beat myself up. I had gotten away from exercise last year due to injuries and packed on a ton of weight. I should realize I can not do what I could before and I must build myself up again. Instead I took three fitness classes this week, back to back and I am a tired and worn out puppy. On top of that I also walked at lunch everyday this week even though my feet started yelling at me on the second day.

I think maybe I need a day of rest. emoticon

    It's human nature to want to make up for lost time, but we all have to start up again at square one. Easy does it and you'll be back to where you were before you know it. Patience has been one of the toughest lessons for me, but the cultivation of it is very helpful in the long run. Hang in there.

    Its hard to face the facts sometimes. I know my mind still wants to go as fast as I once did but I know I cant. That's ok tho, because I will and so will you. We'll get there!

    Sounds like you do need a day (or 2) of rest. Our bodies will only tolerate so much before they let us know to STOP. Time to re-evaluate your exercise perhaps?

    If it becomes too painful and adverse we ALL risk bailing out of our workout regimen...a break and re-thinking your approach may be in order...!

    There's nothing wrong with resting your body for a day! Just make sure your food choices are good, and get plenty of rest. Overworking yourself won't make the weight go away any quicker. We all need rest days. They're good for us, but we just gotta make sure we're up and at it again the next day.
