Knowing when to give your body a break…Cooking for 200, 14 thousand steps

This week I am cooking for 200 people, setting up, and breaking down. Today was the first day. I also teach kids about food, and where the food is coming from for about 4 hours. I worked 8 hours, and am exhausted.

I thought about going to the gym and running, but I am tired and my body is saying rest. I have 3 more days of organizing, cooking, serving, and teaching.

This post is to say. No workout today, I will have Muay Thai and Kali for Tuesday and Thursday.

On a positive note. I got 14,000 steps in an 6 miles. =)

I will be back to my regularly scheduled program next week. Thanks for reading. Have a great day, be kind to yourself, and love everyone.
