Beth Ann's Day Off

Tuesday & Wednesday were both so very busy and draining at work. I still got in my two-fer each day, but at the end of yesterday, I just hit a wall. My body was done.

I had a sudden realization that I had worked out 16 times in 10 days. But yet the thought of not working out today made me feel like a failure. That is ridiculous. I had to assure myself that it was okay to take the day off. So this morning, I slept in...meaning I got up in time to get ready and go to work. I stopped by Starbucks and got myself a skinny latte.  I didn't bring any clothes to work out at lunch and I'm meeting a friend for dinner.  I feel so rejuvenated and so much better.

I look forward to going to CrossFit tomorrow and then Jazzercise on Saturday.  With me, so often, it is all or nothing.  I have to remember that pacing myself and taking care of my body is part of being successful in the long run.  It is within my power to make this happen.
I'm headed to My Fit F00ds at lunch to pick up something for today and tomorrow lunches.  I usually go out to lunch on Fridays but since I didn't work out today, I want to be good.  I think over the weekend, I'm going to make some crock pot pork loin for Sunday dinner (and leftovers next week) which should be relatively lo-cal yet delicious.  What are your favorite healthy dinners that make good leftovers?

Quite a while ago, I went into Ross with BFF & my parents and I grabbed two dresses off the rack that I didn't try on.  I have been wearing one a lot since then but the other one was too snug.  I loved it though so I hung onto it even though it kept getting more snug...  Today is a successful day because not only am I wearing the dress, I feel pretty darn cute.  :-)
Hope you all are enjoying your day as much as I'm enjoying mine!!

You absolutely must listen to your body Hero. I completely agree. Obviously not listening to the head when it's just playing games, but knowing when your body needs a rest is important. I'm proud of you.

Glad you're having such a great day and you look HOT in that dress lady!!

That IS a cute dress! So glad you hung on to it.
I miss Ross. We had one near our old house in Illinois but not here in Po-Dunk! I could always find such great deals there.
