I Used To Feel Guilty
Monday, December 21, 2020
On days I do not have much to show for my fitness spark challenge. Most days are good-and
some notso. But the truth is-
This is my greatest challenge. If only I could sleep like I did as a teen. As much as I don’t like admitting it, I am the "I" word. (insomniac) … There-I said it!
But then I got real with myself and stopped making unreasonable demands. I asked myself:
Would I put the same expectations on my vehicle if it the tank was almost empty—or expect to get to my destiny on fumes? When traveling, what are those rest stops there for?
With not much more than a nap some nights, this is where you might find me after a toss-and-turn night. Yep! Put my feet up and read a good chilling mystery! Rest and relaxation is necessary to help re-fuel the body.
When I think of how my body has served me well for so many years, isn’t this only fair?
Last—If my doctor is ok. I am ok.
“How many days do you exercise per week?”
“Average is five.”
(cardio and strength training—(diligent)
“That’s great! Everything looks good—keep up the good work and see you next year!”
Whew! That takes the pressure off! No more feeling guilty!
Thanks for reading and hope you have a great day! ...
