Have you ever had the awesome experience of someone looking you square in the face, and telling you that you look “tired”?

That’s code for, “You look like s*it!”

And I’m sorry, but there’s no “code” to it.  It’s so blatantly obvious that they think you look crappy.

Bah.

I vlogged yesterday, instead of typing out a post.

Here’s the fruit of that labor.

And yes, I look tired.  Didn’t you get the piece about me needing to REST?  This weekend, I plan to hibernate like a bear, eat like a moose, and run like a llama on the treadmill.

Visions of animals are dancing through your head now.  Perhaps a llama running haphazardly on a treadmill, pressing the buttons with it’s snout?  Do llama’s have snouts?  They’re not beaks.  Perhaps just noses.

At least I’ve diverted your attention away from the bags under my eyes.

Success.

QUESTION:  How often do you take rest days?  Tell me one thing that makes you “not perfect”.

splendid…lindsay

    I had to laugh that a vlog is “easier” for you than writing. I only made one vlog. It took me ALL DAY to do that stupid thing. Ha! I’m actually starting to like the treadmill. But that’s only because I watch TV while running. But infomercials? Seriously? Ha! (And I think you look lovely, as always.)

    As for things that make me “not perfect”…oh my. There could be an ENTIRE BLOG dedicated to that.

    I hate when people say “you look tired”, what is the point there? Who are you helping by telling me I look “tired” aka like death. It’s the worst when you really aren’t tired.
    I have a hard time with rest days as well, I try for AT LEAST once a week. But those rest days I get so grumpy not getting in a workout and feel like a failure for not working out, when indeed I do know it is what my body needs. It’s easier said then done that is for sure!
    I hope you get feeling better soon!!!

    You are too dang cute…and once again I feel like a missed out, never picking up a southern accent before moving outside of NC.

    One thing that makes me not perfect? I think, at times, I am tooooo good at life.

    Kidding! I am very impatient, even with those I love best.

    This is great, Lindsay…I mean, I really resonated with everything you said! Rest days are SO hard for me to take, even if my muscles are aching. I really need to practice what I preach and be better at resting. I owe it to my body for working so hard! :D Thanks for this reminder! I have a vlog on my post today too (once it’s up); they’re fun to do. :)

    And I will NEVER understand why people think it’s okay to say, “You look tired today!” to someone’s face. I mean, who wants to hear that? You either: a.) KNOW you’re tired and are trying to not look drained, or b.) AREN’T tired and then it throws you off and makes you think you must look like a wreck! Come on, people. ;)
