Impromptu Rest Day

Got home from work with Day 5 on my mind (CONFESSION: dreading it) but after all was said and done today, cooking dinner, feeding Ava, bath night, spending quality time and then bed time, somewhere during that time is decided I was taking a rest day.  

I was tired and I was starting to feel sore and I just decided I wanted a rest day.

But I feel guilty about it.  I feel like I should still be doing something and there's also a voice in the back of my mind that is saying if I'd just done it earlier, the half hour would be over and I wouldn't be left thinking about it.  

To be slightly fair to myself, Tara and I did go to the track at lunch today.  We did half an hour and alternated walking and running laps.  It loosened up my arms and my shoulders and it felt good to have gotten out instead of wandering around aimlessly at lunch.  

I still have half a mind to set up all the weights just to do a little bit more and feel less guilty.  But I'm going to stand by my rest day decision.  Tomorrow is frisbee night and I've got Thursday, Friday and Saturday to get in two more workouts before frisbee again on Sunday.  

It's not even like I cheated on any meals or ate excessively (not counting my eating half of Monica's Nutella filled cookie!). 

Does watching lifting videos count for anything? LOL
