I just spent the entire holiday weekend gardening. No big deal right?
OMG I can barely move.
My hands are so sore from gripping the rake and pulling weeds I can barely grip a hair brush. I can – it’s just so sore! I also have aches and pains in other places I didn’t know even existed elsewhere on my body.
It’s one thing to be a little tired and sore after a day or so of exertion. But these aches and pains are screaming signs that I need to pay better attention to my health. Today marks day 3 of my “100 days reboot” and a great opportunity to focus on health and wellness – making this my first Wellness Wednesday post.
Wellness isn’t just about diet and exercise, in my opinion. It’s about all things that support a healthy self. Eating clean and staying fit are only one of the foundations to wellness which supports keeping our spirits well.
The pleasure of being active again, especially after a long, cold, hard winter, is tarnished by all these new aches and pains. Being over weight and out of shape is no longer something I can just brush off as “not that bad”.
What a wake-up call! I have a lot I want to do with my life, dammit. Standing on the sidelines is not part of the plan. I can no longer afford the flimsy excuses!
Off to the gym for some stretching and light cardio. What’s your plan for the day?
