As I talked about on the exercise page, I'm fighting a cold. I listened to my body during the week and didn't work out for a few days. Sometimes I think athletes try to push too much and then they end up having to take a longer break. So, I took four days off. I felt wiped out when I finished my workout, but I ended up regaining some energy and got a lot done today. I made some homemade hamburger potato soup and finished wrapping Christmas presents. I felt a lot more productive, and I can trace it back to the fact that I worked out.
I'm a lover of life, an eternal optimist, and I have an intense desire to add value through simple living and positive vibes.
