You can’t beat yourself up over things you can’t control

Reading Time: < 1 minutes

I’m still not feeling very good and in all honesty, for someone who hasn’t been to the gym in days, I feel like a boulder was dropped on me. I’m kind of frustrated that my workout plans were kind of foiled because of how I’m feeling. I know many people would say push through it and workout anyway, but I know doing so would only make me feel worse. Instead my plan for tomorrow is to walk around the track on campus work. While it’s not typically something I want to do, it’ll make me feel like I’m being active enough for the day while not pushing too much.

I’m looking at my schedule next week- it is a BUSY week at work- so I can determine what working out I can do without stretching myself thin. I foresee many lunch hour gym sessions, which I’m completely ok with.They really break up my day. I’m going to wait until Saturday to decide what next week’s gym schedule officially looks like, since I don’t know how much longer feeling crummy will last. I will say, I haven’t been so hydrated in forever, but I also haven’t taken so much Tylenol in forever. While there are a lot of things you can control, there are just times when you’re body has a mind of it’s own.

I will say that if I am feeling up to it, I want to get to a Bikram class next week. That’s my goal: get my butt to Bikram!

When you all have set backs, what kinds of goals do you set for yourself to get back into the swing of things?
