I am feeling very limp tonight; it’s been a long week! With a three day weekend coming up, I will take a mini-vacation Sunday and Monday. It was an impulse, but it feels so right, to take a break, even for two days. 🙂 even on the days I haven’t exercised, I was fretting over this or that about the trail. A break will be good, because after Monday, things shift into even higher gear.
Thinking it over further – one of the things I want to get over is my over-abundance of guilt and self-blame when I fail to do things exactly the way I planned them to go. Even this ‘working myself into shape’ phase is helping with that… If I miss a day here or there, I’m teaching myself that it’s okay, no one will take me to task for it, and I don’t need to beat myself up because no one else is. Painfully slow, I can be a drama queen, but I am learning.
I will still exercise tonight and tomorrow, of course.
Good girl. We need to grow up like this. So much out there beating us down that after a while we help beat ourselves down.
