Let the Body Rest

I am so happy it’s Thursday!

Today is my Friday off because ever other week I have Friday off and this just so happens to be the one. I look forward to it for many reasons: I get to sleep in, I can stay in my sweats, eat breakfast when I want, eat lunch when I want, leisurely sip my coffee, go to the gym, run errands, clean the house….and the list goes on. Who doesn’t love a day off though, right? I always find that my to-do list is usually pretty lengthy on these days, but so far it’s not too bad. I am definitely a list person. I get satisfaction from writing out tasks I need to complete and then crossing them off with such pleasure once I have accomplished the task. You can say it, I’m a total nerdo.

By the way, yesterday I did take a day off from physical activity. It felt pretty good to have a ‘rest’ day even though I’ll be the first to admit I have a hard time actually giving myself those days. However, I know the importance of letting your body recover, so I do take them once a week (twice if it is a rough week). It is important to listen to your body telling you to slow down sometimes. I will be back in full swing tomorrow!

Breakfast was once again a fruit and yogurt bowl but this time I mixed in some Kashi Berry Blossoms cereal. This was a definite winning combo. I also snagged a half a piece of homemade zucchini bread at work.

At lunch break today, a couple of my coworkers and I braved the weather and went for a walk outside. It really wasn’t too bad once you got moving and the sun was out so that helped. We stuffed our lunches in our pockets and walked for about 40 minutes. I am so glad they pushed me to go for a walk because I felt the endorphins for a good two hours after the walk! I sipped on a couple of decaf Chai teas in the afternoon as I cruised through the rest of the work day.

Now I am home and in the process of cooking up dinner. It’s going to be a good one! I will post it later and you better believe it involves vegetables. Until then, Moose says “keep it real homies.”
