I QUIT!

This isn't what you think.   I just can't do it anymore.  What am I talking about, you ask?  Well, the 100 Day Challenge.  It's killing me.  I made it through 45 days but I am burnt right out. 

In a nutshell, the 100 Day Challenge is just 30 minutes of intentional movement for each of 100 days.   Easy, right?    The thing is that I am so used to just going all out that I tend to overdo it on what should just be a light-activity/active rest day.   Essentially, I am not getting any rest days and it is my silly dedication to colouring in the boxes on my 100 days chart that keeps me going.  

So - I've decided to get smart and go back to my 6 day a week workouts and one day of complete rest (maybe yoga on that day, but only if I feel so inclined).   I need that 7th day to recover and recharge and just have fun with my family.  While I know that I was doing the 100 day challenge wrong - I need to do what's right for me and the challenge isn't it.
