Hello all. I have really taken a like to physically pushing myself to feel the pain that I want to cause my body. I have noticed that not only do I sleep harder (WITH NO NIGHTMARES!!!! YAY!!!!), but the soreness I feel in my legs the next day is freaking AMAZING!!!! I would think this soreness is soooo much better than the pain caused by cutting. I have also been a little more positive from the feel good endorphins that come from the workouts. Additionally, I have been paying attention to what I am eating again. This morning my breakfast consisted of some Muscle Milk (which is surprisingly good) with two scoops of my women’s protein powder. Slowly on the road to a mentally and physically healthier me!
Here is my question for all of you: Rest days? Do you take a rest day when you are just starting back up? Or do you push yourself to do something every day to help ward off depressive thoughts? I am debating on taking a rest day or not this week. I jogged 2.75 miles last night. So, I have been jogging lately. I need an exhausting strength training exercise routine. Do any of you do anything that would fall in this category?
