30 day Health Challenge – Day 14

I was fairly tired today and spent much of the day resting. I didn’t feel too bad overall but I felt the need to give myself a break (though I did the same yesterday). It may have been the rough night of sleep Katie – and therefore I – got last night or detox or healing or hormones or who knows; regardless I took a break. My mood was pretty darn good through the day. Getting the motivation to work out tonight was a bit rough though. I would have rather climbed into bed early but realized I was starting to not feel as well as evening went on and knew I needed a detox bath. If I didn’t, then tomorrow’s plan would have gone out the window. Katie goes to school in the morning and I have an hour at home until I have to return to pick her up. I need that hour to catch up on some housework and I would have needed to take my bath then if I chose to skip it tonight. So, if I’m going to take my bath tonight, I might as well work out first because I don’t want to get back in the habit of not working out like I have in the past. I’m glad I reasoned myself into it. 🙂 Luckily, I have a good support system of friends who are willing to help keep me going and keep the positive stream of thoughts in my head. It’s been a great help in fully sticking to GAPS (no cheating since Thursday and this through ovulation, quite an impressive feat for me) and completing my workouts.
