This has been a rough winter for my family as far as sicknesses go. We have a 2, 3, and 5 year old and they are really good at sharing their germs with each other (and us!), and it seems that we just take turns being sick from November-March every year. It is the season of parenting we're in, and although I know it won't always be this way, I really dislike it! I've had the runny nose, cough, congestion for a few weeks now and it is starting to cramp my style. I got a sub to teach one of my classes so I could try to rest up and that didn't really help. I only teach twice this week, and not for a few more days, so I'm giving myself a little more time to feel better! Next week is a FULL week of classes, so this week is a must for recuperation.
But that is enough of a synopsis of my ill health! The purpose for today's blog is to give yourself permission to get better if you're not 100%, either. I was feeling a little down on myself because I have not been in the mood to work out lately and haven't been to some of my favorite classes for awhile due to feeling crappy. And you know what? That's TOTALLY okay. I need to give myself permission to GET WELL and I know some of you need to hear that, too! You will not undo your progress if you take a week to exercise lightly and less frequently and just RECOVER.
Be good to your body and your body will be good to you!
