So yesterday I did something extremely rare for me – I missed a Monday!
I still fully believe that you set the tone on Monday, but I was still pretty drained from this past weekend, and it didn’t feel necessary for me to push myself further, rather I felt it best to listen to my body as it let me know it needed some more rest.
I haven’t come all this way having a healthy pregnancy to make dumb decisions NOW!
This is not the same as skipping a Monday because you don’t want to workout, so I’m fine with it. This is what my very pregnant, very drained body needed, and in fact, I’m incredibly proud of how much I have grown on this journey – the Kara of the past definitely would have pushed herself all in the name of ‘never missing a Monday’, but I’ve grown and I have evolved, learning that sometimes rest IS best.
It felt awesome to get back to it today, though!
