Happy Wednesday Friends! This week has been super busy. Not bad busy…good busy. End of school stuff for all three kiddos…it’s exhausting. Good exhausting but exhausting.
Which leads me to my little rant to you all about rest days. It’s really easy to get caught up in working out. Because we set all these goals for ourselves and we want to meet those goals and exceed those goals that we’ve set for ourselves. So we push and push and push, sometimes working out every day of the week when we shouldn’t be.
Rest days are just as vital to our success in our fitness journeys as active days. When we workout, we are breaking down our tissues and muscles so that they can rebuild bigger and better. But they need time to do this. If we are continually beating them up, they will never rebuild. It would be like if you got beat up every day by a big mean bully. And nobody wants to be beat up every day by a big mean bully. Including your muscles. Incorporating rest days into your program is essential for those muscles to take the time needed to recover.
So rest your muscles yo! You’ll thank yourself later 😉
