Screw that, I’m a good girl, I deserve to rest!
In reality, I’m one of those annoying people who’s like, “OMG it’s not exercise, it’s a lifestyle!”
The type who says, “When I don’t get my workout in a day, I feel incomplete!”
Well, I guess I will get punched in the face by Jennifer Lawrence.
But honestly, I do have to force myself to listen to my body and rest because all I want to do is hit the gym and throw some weights around. I see it as play time. Too bad my body doesn’t. With school being about 5 weeks in, I can already feel the toll it’s taking on my body. So while I’m working out less than I was during the summer, I feel just as tired and maybe even more sore given less number of workouts I do these days. It doesn’t help that I have such an A-type personality where the more I can’t or shouldn’t do something, the more I want to do it.
Even though I know the reason I’ve been feeling so tired is because I’m so mentally exhausted and have less breaks than I did before, because I’m not working out as much a part of me is like, “OMG! I’m totally out of shape! I’m sore even though I only worked out twice this week!” Thankfully I’ve got such amazing friends who give it to me straight and aren’t afraid to hand me a reality check when I’m being all unreasonably whiney about something.
So I’m going to listen to my body, because the body wins at the end of the day, and decided to schedule a massage today instead of working out like I originally intended. Not such a bad trade off, wouldn’t you say? 😉
