I’m already over a week into my journey. And, just like any journey or great quest, there are always going to be speed bumps.
Today, it comes in the form of my period. See I started bleeding on Monday (aka yesterday). Cramping is generally really super bad the first day or so, but somehow I managed to get through a workout yesterday.
Today though was another story. I think part of it has to do with the time change, losing that hour of sleep/time has really made the last 2 days a struggle. Add to that some bloating, cramping and general period fatigue, today . . . today working out just wasn’t meant to be. I really wanted to, but sometimes you have to listen to your body. And today my body was telling me to take a day off, get caught up on some laundry, and make sure to get to bed earlier so you can wake up in the morning with time to workout.
Sometimes life happens and, for whatever reason, a workout just isn’t in the cards for that day. But as I learned last week, I know that I am capable of picking up right where I left off and making sure I keep the forward momentum.
Remember – no matter what you’re doing, Don’t beat yourself up for going at a slower pace than others, or for having to take a day off to help refocus on you. Everyone’s journey is different.
