I thought I had developed an exercise schedule that would be challenging enough yet allow me to be kind to myself. I'm beginning to have doubts. Last night, I felt ill and achy after my workout. And today, rather sullen and moody. I decided I didn't want to workout tonight. At least I didn't want to spend 42 minutes huffing and puffing on the NordicTerrorist, oops, I mean NordicTrack. I decided to give myself a break and instead did the yoga practice I should have gotten up to do this morning, but didn't. Normally I'd feel guilty about this. I need my cardio. I also need the breathing and stretching and mental focus of yoga. And I also need strength training. Most importantly, I must find the right balance so that I am being kind to myself.
There'll be more on this topic.
