Taking a break

I have felt frazzled and completely stressed out for the last couple of days. I did two workouts (a morning run and an evening swim) on Sunday so I took Monday off, but when I thought about running today I just dreaded the whole idea. So I took today off as well. It worked -- I'm already looking forward to doing it tomorrow.

It's hard to know sometimes whether I really need a break or whether it's just laziness and inertia talking, but today I could tell I really needed the break. I've had an unfocused and frustrated last few days and I needed a breather to collect mysef.

I had to miss Weight Watchers today because of a work commitment, but I'm planning to get to a meeting on Thursday. I will have to wait until then to see whether I will pay for the weekend's indiscretions on the scale.

MAKEOVERS on "The Biggest Loser tonight." Can't wait.


  1. Good for you for taking a break! You risk getting super burned out if you don't :)

  2. Good job taking a break! Sometimes that is the HARDEST possible thing to do. You should be proud that you listened to your body and gave it what it needed.

  3. Remember, it's during our rest time that the body actually rebuilds itself stronger. Sounds like you needed a rest. Good job listening to your body!

  4. You have been working hard! Glad you enjoyed a rest.
