Well, I really toyed with the idea of taking a day off...breaking my streak. I know my body would have benefited from it. But, what about my mind? I thought what if I stop? Will it click a switch in my mind, in my head and start up that whole 'it's okay to stop' mentality...the whole, 'I don't feel like it today' when in reality, I could totally do it? So I guess for the sake of my brain, I put the X Stretch in again, and did 20 minutes. That's all I could do. My back is calming down...but everything else...my stomach hurts, my ribs feel bruised, I'm nauseaus, I feel sort of....like I have pneumonia. I don't. It just feels like that because of the inflammation. I know that the vulnerability of my back makes my whole system vulnerable. Now, I have a bit of a cold too. I got sent for a loop, and my immune system took a hit. I say, 20 minutes is way better than no minutes!
I'm the mother of 3 beautiful girls. Somewhere along the line, I lost myself, and now
I am on a journey of rediscovery, of health and happiness which includes losing the weight that is holding me back from really enjoying life. I found The Gabriel Method (www.gabrielmethod.com )back in March and have been working that since. I believe he's got the key. In addition, I am on a self-imposed refined-sugar-free/gluten-free eating lifestyle. Exercise has become something that I love, that I crave, that I truly enjoy, thanks to discovering P90X. P90X is challenging, and killer, and awesome! Going Primal Baby! Blogging about this journey is going to be interesting.
