Listening To My Body Like I Always Should

I have abused it for years.

Treated it like shit.

Taken it for granted.

Poisoned it.

I had signed up for Fitbox tonight.

I started to develop a headache in the afternoon and was feeling nauseous.  I had a tea and a snack hoping that would help.  It didn’t.  When I got home, I lay down on the sofa.  I knew I would feel guilty for not going.  But, I also knew my body couldn’t handle it.  That kind of intensity.  Working out.

First off, I wouldn’t give it my all.  I certainly would not be able to put in 100% – so why bother.

Secondly, why bother if I don’t feel well.  My body is trying to tell me something.  Listen to it.  I need to start giving it the benefit of the doubt and treating it the way it deserves to be treated.

I cancelled the class and had my parents take the boys to baseball.

I lay down at home and took care of me.

Just like I should always do.
