Rest Day

Friday, May 07, 2010

Yesterday, I was completely exhausted and hungry ALL day long. At work, I could barely keep my eyes open. What did I do? I LISTENED to my body. I went over my calories by 100ish but I felt like I needed that extra food. I wasn’t eating out of boredom or stress or any type of emotion. I was just plain ‘ol hungry so I gave my body what it was asking for. I think it’s because I ate at the low end of my calorie range the day before. So my body wasn’t used to it and tried to make up for that today. Does that make sense…or did I just make that up!?

When I got home, I decided to skip the gym (and any exercise in general), had dinner, watched a little TV and went to bed by 8pm. Yesterday made me realized how IMPORTANT a rest day is. I hadn’t had one last week, and I was going to take it today. However, it must have all caught up with me and I’m glad I listened to my body.

I don’t know if I’m feeling a weight loss this week but I guess I’ll find out on Sunday! emoticon

    You said you went over your daily calorie consumption by 100 because you felt you were hungry. Sometimes when we think we are hungry, it is actually thirsty. Next time try drinking a glass of water, wait 10 minutes, and if you still feel the urge to eat then go for it!
