I needed that day of rest. It is amazing how one day and night can really make such a big difference in how I feel. Yesterday, I was feeling stiff, sore and pretty beat up. My back ached, my hips were killing me and my feet? Bleargh! Poor things were ready to fall off.
Today, I feel much better. Rested, little discomfort and my hips and back are much better. My feet are even happier. I am ready to get back out on the trail, tonight. Yepper. A day off once a week. Who knew? It really is a wonderfully healing thing.
If you aren't taking a rest day, I encourage you to start doing so. Your body, mind and spirit all need it!
Food has been very nicely on track. I ended the day at 1195 yesterday. Just a tad under my target range. Needless to say, I am not stressing over it... I figure a lighter calorie day on a non walk day can't be a bad thing.
Okay, I need to go get my second cup of coffee and some breakfast. I think I am going to do Egg Beaters and a toasted whole grain bagel thin. With some cheese... Nom nom nom.
Okay. Later, gators.
