Give yourself permission

Pin It Some may disagree with me on this, but that's fine.  I think some weeks you need to give yourself permission to take a few days off from exercise.  I have not worked out since Monday night and I have just decided tonight that I am not going to workout tonight either.  I've been feeling a bit under the weather the past couple of days and my shoulder is killing me, so it's official - I've given myself permission to take time off.  I will workout tomorrow as I have a PT session at the gym, but today, no way.  I feel like crap, and I sit here beating myself up because I'm not at the gym and then it hits me - I'm allowed to stay home!  I have to do laundry anyhow :)  I will do some stretching and such as part of my physio exercises, but that's it.  I may see a negative impact on the scale on Saturday, but I am prepared to live with that.  We can't all be 100% perfect 100% of the time now, can we?

On another note, I couldn't believe it - I forgot my lunch bag (a nice leather Espe one) in the lunch room yesterday with my WW baguettes in it (like 4 left I think).  I didn't worry too much as we're a small enough office that we don't normally have to worry if we leave stuff lying around - it'll be there when we go back.  I went in today dreaming about having one of those yummy baguettes with my giant salad and low and behold, someone had TAKEN my baguettes (out of my zippered lunch bag) and thrown my lunch bag on top of the fridge!!!!  I can't believe it!  I could see if I left them in a grocery bag on the counter - someone might think they're for the taking, but give me a break people - I did not leave my lunch bag on the counter (zipped) so someone could pilfer my buns!  Grrrr....they were not cheap either...  Ok, I'm off to launder my gym clothes so that I can't use the excuse of no clean gym clothes not to work out tomorrow :)

Totally agree about the exercise break!! Sometimes your body needs a break. (altho for me sometimes the break need is in my head!) But when youre body speaks, I say LISTEN!!!
