I’ve had all the excuses lately to not workout. To not do the thing that makes me stronger, clears my head, relaxes & restores me, invigorates me, makes me feel free...
I’ve let these excuses take over. I havnt worked out in over a week & im feeling it. I went to a Pilates/ core session yesterday and I felt like I was back at square one, I felt like I set myself back to 8 months ago.
The cause... too much going on, too many out of the ordinary demands in the past 2 weeks, lots of excitement followed by fear & just plain craziness....these are the stories I’ve been telling myself!
My body responds by tightening, tensing, bracing, holding...
I know that with a little self care, a little more ease, & grace I’ll be back to the norm. And most importantly BREATHE!!!
So today, despite everything in my life screaming “you don’t have time”, including the sore back & neck, I took an hour for me on my mat! 🧘🏼♀️
Now, I’m feeling more relaxed, feeling energized, and got more done then I thought!!!
Don’t forget to take care of YOU and when it feels hard, dig deeper, push a little harder, get up, keep going, try again, you will thank yourself later.
