Why are we talking about self-care today? Because last night I was underneath the bus. I couldn't sleep, I had cold chills. It was pretty terrible and my back was hurting, and it's not because I don't drink water because I drink a gallon of water every day, but I was like, what in the hell is wrong with me?
Since COVID, so that's what like March, the middle of March, I've been walking every day, maybe not every single day. Maybe I've missed one day or maybe two days, so while I have been proud of how consistent I've been and I've been walking daily and that was awesome, what I haven't been doing is considering the breaks that my body needs because I'm walking at least four miles, at least for now, sometimes seven, sometimes eight..
I've been being real disrespectful to my body and I should have known something was up because the other day my Under Armour walking app sent me a note telling me, “Great! You're halfway there. You're doing great.” But it completely said, “Remember to take breaks” so I implore you, I ask you, if you are walking consistently, that’s awesome. The consistency is great, and it's amazing, give yourself the grace to be able to take a break, especially when we're talking about your physical health and working out but do you notice I still came out here and something about the consistency, that's addictive, and I didn't want to not walk, and now that I have you guys as my accountability partners, and you guys see me up walking, I don't want to break that chain of consistency, but what I am doing, see how slow I'm walking, I'll probably only walk a mile today and just make sure that I'm eating something nutritious food. I'm taking multivitamins, all that kind of stuff, but all of this was about giving yourself grace and what self-care looks like and giving yourself a break when it comes to your physical workout. Don't get crazy. Don't just be on a break and then it's not a consistent break. It's what does a break look like in your workout? So for me, this is a break. It’s slow. It's easy.
