This week has been much easier. It is amazing to me how a change in perspective can open up a whole new world. I focused on getting stronger and pushing myself mentally this week. I feel so refreshed. I think physically my body was begging for rest. I feel that moderation in everything is key. I am trying to focus my thoughts, my body and my actions to health and well-being.
This week I am at 165! (2.37%) Seriously, those sixties have alluded me for EVER! Amazingly, with less intense working out and more rest I caught them. My overall percentage to date is 5.7%. I am so thrilled about the lesson I learned to listen to my body and find balance. Sometimes constant pushing just stresses your body more so it is unable to rid itself and rebuild.
Now when I say rest, I don't mean do nothing. It just means instead of an intense INSANITY or P90X video and a jog, I will just do the jog or even walk. This gives your body a bit of a rest to catch up and rebuild inside. (This is just my thoughts.) I don't have any research, but it has made a big difference for me.
Lets hope we can keep this up and find balance in everything we do. Loved this blog post and wanted to share it with you. I think she has some wonderful advice for all about body image.
Another post for all about motherhood and getting into the picture called life...everyday!!!
Hope you all have a great week!
