I am officially going to make Thursdays my rest day. It is one of my longer days at work and today just felt extra long – first day back after the holidays always do. I really thought that I could do it and push myself to workout today but I couldn’t. I was just too exhausted both physically and mentally. All I wanted to was to come home, relax and spend time with my family. Also, to top it off, I got my period so I was totally not feeling 100%.
I have to admit that I was quite disappointed at myself for not sticking to my plan today to workout after work. BUT, the exhaustion just really got to me and I wanted to focus the little energy I had left towards my little one.
Although I didn’t work out today, I did manage to resist eating the leftover holiday sweets at work. It was a real challenge because I LOVE sweets and it is also my time of the month which definitely increased that craving. It gave me affirmation that if I can say ‘no’ today then I can do so tomorrow and the next day and so on.
