So when is my RESTFUL rest day?

Tuesday, February 16, 2016

Weekdays I am not home. Which is funny because I leave at 8 or 9 and am back by 4 at the latest, usually 3. But I feel like I am not home. Stress is just life now, I can't pretend there will ever be a time when I don't have something to worry about. I really want to make working out a time to focus on myself, on feeling good, because I recognize how much I have neglected myself all my life. But today was supposed to be a rest day. I'm still sore from yesterday - I didn't go hard like Dana Lynn Bailey, but I went hard for marshmallow Lupa, and I'm feeling the burn. My new activity tracker informed me that, in the course of my typical daily activities, not including housekeeping, I burned almost a hundred calories and walked about a mile. Just taking it easy because its a rest day. Tomorrow I hope that my arms will let me raise them a bit higher with no complaints because I've got a challenge to meet, I am not giving up just because I'm feeling whiny and pitiful. It looks like I will have to plan my rest days to include some pampering time. I didn't feel like I was able to rest at all until a nice bubble bath. Maybe next rest day a pedicure is in order. Where's my massager? The pain is moved into my back. Oh that's tension, nevermind. Can't blame that on the workout. Tiger Balm is magic.

    Those workouts can find muscles I didn't even know I HAD - good for you for hanging in there!
