Not only did I step away from Yellow Haired Girl over the last couple of weeks, I took a break from the gym too.
I used every excuse in the book to avoid tying up my running shoes.
Did I say I didn’t have enough time? Guilty.
Did I choose Christmas shopping over working out? Guilty.
Did I decide to nap instead of doing any sort of physical activity? Guilty.
You name the excuse … I used it. Whatever. I’m using the term guilty, but let’s be clear here. I don’t feel guilty. I’m still a healthy little clam, and I think it’s okay to take a break sometimes.
I will say, however, now that I’ve jumped back on the cardio/strength training train … I’m sore. All. The. Time. I can’t wash my hair because my arms hate me. Taking the stairs? Cruel and unusual punishment.
It feels good to have some DOMS action in my life. And to get the blood pumpin’ and the sweat pourin’ on a regular basis once again.
Here’s to a healthy start to 2013!
