[a weight loss story]
*kathrynoh at nemesis dot com dot au*
I left work tonight feeling dead tired. I'd have given the gym a miss but I was meeting a girl from Diet Club for Pump class. I got there way early so I went on the treadmill. I started sweating and could hardly move. And that was just during the warm up.
I thought I could push myself through it. But that was the dumbest idea ever. There was no pushing. In the end I decided to quit and go home. No way could I manage a pump class.
At first I thought I might be coming down with the flu but I think it's more likely that I've been pushing myself so hard for the last few weeks. I'm having a rest day tomorrow then I'll see how I feel. The temp job I've got is only for a week so I don't want to jeopodise that by getting sick.
Arrrghh! I might be a machine but at the moment, I'm a machine in dire need of a grease and oil change.
I think a day off will give your body that much needed rest! You have done well, so have a break and you will be back at it before you know it :)
just think your bodies trying to tell you that it might be tired... have a fantastic day off, and just think you'll have all that extra energy to use tomorrow!
Rest Kathryn, I don't need collapsing halfway up the bolte bridge!
You're right to give your body a rest and a few days off always makes me more enthusiatic the next time i'm out there.
yep...time for rest...and u so deserve it, you've been working so hard, at least u can enjoy it without feeling guity...i can only imagine wat u'll get up to when ur all recharged
In the heat a lot of people can barely sit and do anything let alone energy to exercise at all. i fell asleep and missed my main walk today. However i recall you had a personal trainer in gym advise that exercise not to overdo by exercising each day. This is my take on that advise. We can exercise most every day, and that is best for fat loss, but only if we do moderate exercise. If we do extra where we really push ourselves like run as far as we can or do a personal training gym session or do some new class that hits the muscles different than what we are used to, or do max bench press or whatever, then we sometimes have to cut right back on the days and times. FIT it is called, if you want the Frequency and Time to be high, keep the Intensity low. Or vice versa. So i am just trying to say, enjoy your well deserved rest days, cos after doing those extra hard runs etc you deserve it. And your body actually restructures during the rest cycle after doing hard exercise, so give yourself that important rest. You have worked so hard and deserve it.

Even machines need a maintenance break now and then! You're better to schedule regular down-time than wait for a breakdown...
Having a break is a good thing. Let your body and mind re-energise which doesn't mean failure, it's just what we have to do.
I think your body is trying to tell you something so listen up. Hope you feel better soon !
Sounds like a rest day will do you the world of good. Enjoy!
hey! get well so that you can go at it 100% again. Otherwsie you will just wear that machines parts out and be no good.
so very true @ having a rest. Exercise will always be there lol Just get you back in order before you do more hindering then helping.
A day off sounds like a great idea - If you feel like Io feel it's a must
