Ego Vs. Health

Today was a battle of ego vs health. I worked late into the night with a headache that ended up getting so bad I was up at 2am feeling nauseous. My alarm clock went off at the per-usual 5am. My mind wasn't doing the 2 year old "I don't wanna", it was doing the "I don't need to do this".

I think mindfulness is knowing when to push yourself and when to let your body rest. That workout would not have done anything but make me feel more exhausted and that extra sleep is what my body needed to have to re calibrate. Maybe a workout will happen today and maybe it won't and because this is a lifestyle not a diet I am choosing to listen and that just might mean another rest day for this girl.
