    Default Rest day - Week 6, Day 4 - Blog 61

    Not much to report today. Zero exercise, ate relatively well till I stole a few of my husband's crispy M&Ms and about four Chicos. I hate Saturdays because I don't do any exercise and it makes me feel slothful. I considered doing Exhilarate earlier but decided against it and to just give my body a rest. Bring on the morning!

    It is not slothful to give your body one of the things that it needs. You have the exercise covered, you are eating well even with a few m'n'm's, you are just giving it the other thing that it needs.

    My fear for you is that if you don't allow yourself to rest without having it niggling at you, you may risk getting into the opposite of where you came from and damaging yourself in other ways. Breath, relax, enjoy the balance.

    I know that my body needs a rest but it just felt so much like the "old me" to not do anything at all (it just didn't work out for us to go for a bike ride this morning) and that's what bothered me more than anything. This change that I've made needs to be permanent and for that to happen I know that I need to have a rest day to avoid burning out.

    Maybe for now you can try to do something on that day that allows you to still rest but is a definite *new you* thing, like going and doing your fruit and veg and healthy food shopping and chopping your veges up so that you have got your good food on hand for another week of healthy eating. Look at your rest as a good, positive thing and not something you have to endure until you can workout.

    I have a facebook friend who is one of the most health conscious, running-on-the-beach most days people you could imagine, but she will occasionally even say she is not getting out of her pjs for a day.

    That's a fantastic idea! I just need to do something "new me" on my rest days.
