What’s Marvelous In My Monday (besides a morning yoga session with J)? The fact that I found this book while unpacking the boxes lurking in the corners
My mom gave it to me a long time ago when I was going through some emotional rough patches – she has always been on a quest to make me a strong person. I only hope that I can be half the woman she is.
I opened it up to the first page and realized that I needed to start a series of posts about self-love, growth, and acceptance.
When I loved myself enough, I quit settling for too little … vibrancy. I had a really long, hard week and just felt physically and emotionally wiped out on Sunday. I pushed myself really hard last week and ended up shaky on the elliptical on Friday morning. I decided that I would take a cardio-break this week. I need to replenish my energy stores and I intend to refocus through a week of yoga, Pilates, and long walks.
I started my cardio-fast this morning and I intend to force myself to abstain for the rest of the week. I’m looking forward to calm and deep, slow breathing with deep, slow thoughts.
Have you ever imposed an exercise-break? How did you feel?
