Well, we’re a few days into week 3 of the 6 Week Challenge and I have been wiped out by a cold. I spent 4 of the last 7 days lying on my couch and wishing I wasn’t (which is completely the opposite of normal wherein I constantly wish I was lying on the couch and can’t.)
I very rarely take unscheduled days off. As a matter of fact, I don’t get paid if I don’t work. That being said, however, I have learned to take care of myself despite a potential pay cut or even bruise to my ego (I’m superhuman! I don’t get sick!). I’m only doing myself harm if I push it. I can’t work if I’m not healthy.
So take care of yourself – whether that means resting or getting yourself to the gym.
