I sometimes have to remind myself that one should not go to the gym everyday. Sometimes, a body just needs to rest and not be put through some sort of workout. Since I don't have to be at work until 2:00pm, I had plans to lift and do some cardio.
At 7:00am, I got out of bed to kiss the husband goodbye and felt my back. Not in a bad way. I was lifting last night when I slightly strained my back. It was tired and I had not listened to it. I used to say that to all my fitness students: "Listen to your body. It will tell you what it can do."
After saying my goodbye, I crawled back into bed and did not get up until 10:00am. It felt good to sleep in. I don't always get that chance, so I gladly took it this morning. I actually have another chance to sleep in again tomorrow (I have inventory on Sunday, so I need to take a weekday off). I think I will take it.
So, to all you folks who exercise everyday, STOP. Take a day off. Sleep in. Have some breakfast. Sip your tea. Relax. Later.
