GL Gets Fit #123 {step back}

Pushing for what you want takes energy but is worth it in the end. Is there anything you did when you were a kid that you ended up quitting and now regret? For me it was piano. Now I'm learning how to play again after 12 years and am determined not to quit again. Allow yourself time to rest & take a little break and then go back at it once you re-energize. Rest > quit.  ///  SNAPCHAT: kellidav via @angela4design by @happsters: Hi Loves!  Two weeks from today and Christmas will be over. 😦  This past week was a crazy busy one for me.  I managed to tweak a muscle in my lower back, so I made the decision to hit pause on the plank challenge.  I didn’t say I quit – I hit pause.  In fact, I may start over completely.  I aggravated an old injury from high school that left me randomly walking hunched over for a couple days.  That was not cool!  I isolated it to that injury because I could do down dog one legged. The old injury left my back and other leg crunched up as I tried to extend it.

A few times a year I have a habit of running myself ragged.  Late nights, early mornings, and running to work and various other events leaves me struggling.  An example would be last week.  I spent the evenings working on projects.  Friday I spent the evening deep cleaning parts of my apartment because they were annoying me.  Saturday I was up from 8am-3am without a nap or much of a break.  Sunday I was up from 8:30am-10pm.  Some times, I need to remind myself to hit the pause button on my brain and just stop moving for 20 minutes or longer and rest.

This reminds me that I may need to get back into yoga in a very important way.  Yoga has been the only thing that has allowed me to actually hit the pause button.  While I’m paying attention to what I should be doing, I’m also able to block out everything else.

Before I end – I did gain a pound.  When I’m tired, I eat.  And I eat bad food!  However, it happens.  I’m still less than I was a couple weeks ago.  Here’s hoping that this week I maintain or get back on track to dropping a pound.

Have a great week loves!  Stay warm my friends.  Its a bit brisk here. 🙂
