Ready to Roll

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.


  1. Sounds good to me. I think it is a great idea to take a day of rest to let your body recuperate. I also think its good to go lighter on the calories as you have on that day. Up them a little on exercise day cause you will need the calories for energy. You are doing great!

  2. Glad you enjoyed your rest day!! I am just starting to take rest days too :) think it will be great!

  3. A day of rest is a terrific thing. If I did this for myself, I would have at least one day as a gift and I would be absolutely sure to accomplish everything I set out to do. A guaranteed success!

    Great suggestion.

  4. Good for you a day of rest is always good for you once in a while. You have done so good.. You earned a day of rest.

  5. Makes sense to me! Are you scheduling your rest day or taking them when needed? I take 'em when needed which usually ends up being a little less than once a week.

  6. I'm glad you enjoyed your day of rest.

  7. Days of rest are highly recommended...guilt free!
