(that was me yelling, trying to inspire you to take this day head on! Make it yours! Fight, fight, fight!!
…Or just crawl back into bed. Start fresh on Tuesday.)
I’m thrilled that you guys agree with my REST post (and that some of you are joining in!)!
Even though taking this rest week will most assuredly be one of the hardest things I’ve done lately, REST IS SIMPLE.
You just rest.
You don’t do anything.
It *should* be one of the easiest things in the world. Doing nothing.
My mind wants to race a million miles a second and worry about all of the fitness I’m losing or strength gains I could be making, when all I need to do is…
To simply be content.
To simply be happy.
To simply be purposeful.
To simply be quiet. (shhh!)
To simply be PRESENT with my husband and kids.
To simply surrender.
That’s what I want to do this week.
Take the focus and energy that I would take to Bootcamp/the weightroom/the Arc Trainer and direct it towards LIFE OUTSIDE THE GYM.
To simply BE.
I like it.
Speaking of “Simply”….(and corny intros…)
The Simply Bar recently sent me some product to review. This company was a generous sponsor at BLEND and gave us all bars to take on our hike to Royal Arch!
They work on hikes, yes, but also dipped into coffee during snack time. Yum.
Check out how they compare to the competition!! (P.S. You can tell they are Canadian by the way they spell “favourite.” Reminds me of Susan, Tamara and Bonnie.)
The Simply Bar wants to give ONE reader a box of their very own yummy deliciousness!!
One winner will receive a 12-count assorted box of Simply Bars
