Today I did not put in the same amount of effort as I have the past 4 days in the gym.
I’m on my period, and I’m cramping, and I feel gross. So I only did half the workout I normally would. Half the C25k workout, half the weights, half of everything.
And you know what? I feel great about that. Because I did something even if I couldn’t do everything I wanted. I did enough because I prioritized how I feel over some arbitrary goalpost. I did enough because doing literally anything is better than doing nothing.
And sometimes selfcare looks like compromises between your body and your mind.
The power of half assing something is that more gets done than if you just decide you just don’t have the energy to do something whole-assed and so you don’t do it at all.
And a win, no matter how small, is an amazing way to start your day.
