When I get stressed and overwhelmed I do things that may not be healthy. And no, I’m not a stress eater. But I do workout more than I should and don’t eat as much as I should and then my body gets all hulk like and HULK SMASHES me back into reality. Which happened this week. Wednesday to be exact. When I took the day off because my body needed me to. I guess what I’m trying to tell you is this…listen to your body. It will tell you when you need to rest. Eat healthy but don’t feel guilty about those cookies you had last night or those beers (or mixed drinks or wine) you had when you went out with girlfriends. Being healthy isn’t always about working out and eating right. It’s also about taking care of yourself and trying not to stress over that huge burger you had for lunch yesterday instead of the salad you think you should have had.
Live life. Love the ride. My new mantra. Or…even better…Hakuna Matata. No worries.
