Today's walk is about self-care. Why are we talking about self-care today? Last night, I was underneath the bus, I couldn't sleep, I had cold chill's. It was pretty terrible and my back was hurting and it's not because I don't drink water because I drink water every day but I was like, what in the hell is wrong with me? Since COVID, I've been walking every day, every single day. You see how slow I'm walking today. I've been walking every single day. I think 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’s dope, that’s awesome. I don't like that. What I haven't been doing is considering the breaks that my body needs because I'm walking at least four miles, at least sometimes seven, sometimes eight. I've been being real disrespectful to my body and I should've 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.
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 because as you notice, I still came out here and something about the consistency that 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 is how slow I'm walking, I probably only walk like a mile today and just make sure that I'm eating some nutritious food but just make sure that I'm really eating something really good. 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 is a break look like in your workout. For me, this is a break - it's slow. It's easy.
