It’s Sabbath Sunday! This is the day to rest so you can be recharged for the week.
As some of you may know I started running again at the end of December. And I have to say those times of rest are now so cherished. It’s amazing to me how differently I view rest now. It used to be a time or day to break up the routine. While that is still true, I look forward to a day of not moving quite so much after pounding the pavement.
But I also have to say that everything seems to be more important when you are pushing yourself. The types of food I crave have changed from junk food to burgers, steaks, anything with protein.
And I have also realized that timing is important too. I workout first thing in the morning usually. When I return I clean up and start my day. With this start I get a cup of tea but not always breakfast. The days I don’t eat right away I am in a mental fog for much of the day.
It is so important to not only push your limits, but to also fuel appropriately. By having balance you can push yourself past your known limits to accomplish great things.
I say this to remind you to keep your cup full so you can continue to give. If there is nothing inside then giving is so difficult. Here’s to taking care of ourselves so we can take care each other too.
With inky fingers,
