When the Body Says No

Yesterday I was feeding the baby when I experienced a jolt of pain shoot through my back. I had to lay there helpless for a few minutes. Today my back was still sore. I had to take some ibuprofen just to get through the morning.

I have to listen to my body. Even though I love my bootcamp classes, the workouts might be too much too soon.

I’m taking a break.

See, moving more is not something I do to lose weight. All militaristic references aside, those bootcamp classes are a gift I give to myself – the gift of feeling proud, the gift of health, the gift of feeling stronger, the gift of fitness. If I don’t listen to my body, then it would be me trying to beat myself thin. And that’s not the kind of example I want to set for my children. It’s not how I take care of myself.
