I took your advice today and got back to work. Yesterday, I rested, and it was awful. I barely left the couch. Today is much better. I woke up and went for a long walk, then came home and got through about half of an arm work out, and half of an ab work out. That's about all I could handle, but I decided it was better to listen to my body and not push it too hard.
I really think moving has helped me feel better. I was trying to explain to my husband how I feel if I don't exercise during the day. He didn't really understand, but I feel such weight and stress leave my shoulders after I work out. Do you know what I mean? I find I am much more patient with my children. I was not a good mom yesterday, hopefully today will be better.
Thanks for all the support and encouragement. I feel so honored to know you all.
