Have you ever found yourself feeling GUILTY for taking time off 😴🤔? Whether that is from the gym, work, people, social media, maybe even a prep for some event... — What I think 💁🏼♀️? You shouldn’t feel guilty for taking time away if it’s going to help you 👌🏽.
Today was a rest day for me.
— aka. thinking about the gym alldaaay 🤪.
Remind yourself that you need to take a rest day sometimes and to not feel bad about it, because your body needs rest as much as it need exercise ☝🏽. Plus! It allows you to get super organised in other aspects of your life! Rest is progress! ➡️
We always talk about the importance of setting goals in the gym, but what about setting goals in other aspects of your life? 🧐 Today, I realised that I need to set myself the goal of drinking more water 💦 , and finding a more consistent eating plan 🍴. Life has been hectic lately (and I thrive off hectic), buuuut that generally has me putting my nutrition (and myself) on the back burner and opting for my best option on hand (aka. I ate the same 3 meals yesterday out of convenience… and yes that was eggs and rice cakes 🍳 — and where that’s not nutritionally “bad”, it could be much better). 💁🏼♀️ I also seem to over-snack when I’m busy (think spoons of PB 🥜) — (most likely a comfort/ stress/ relief thing?) I have also been feeling super achey from my workouts and I’m thinking that may be due to not consuming the adequate amount of protein for my body, performance and goals - to repair and recover 🤨. Further, a busy lifestyle and being a girl who wants to DO IT ALL has me forgetting to sip throughout the day, and cutting out hours of sleep. 🙅🏼♀️ I want to get myself out of these bad habits by setting myself DAILY GOALS and by creating a MEAL PLAN for myself to follow for convenience, accountability and to ensure I’m performing and progressing at my peak 💥.
