Day Nine: Progress and Respite

George and Weezie may have been content with movin’ on up, but not me. I’m movin’ on down. 1.5 lbs. worth of down. As always, I’ll believe it after a couple of days. But now I feel a bit more confident that this is a bona fide trend and not the capricious will of the tides.

The Wii Fit Age hasn’t budged. I’m okay with that. 29 was a pretty good year.

Today was a day of rest in EA Sports Active, and since I haven’t taken a break for the last eight days, I decided to limit my activity to some walking and some pushups. Tomorrow its back to the 30-day challenge and a shoulder and back workout on daily burn.

Dinner today was a nice chicken breast stuffed with basil and a little cheese. Some salad, asparagus, and bread. I also had a couple of beers.

All in all today hasn’t been the healthiest, but I don’t think it’s been a complete train wreck either. Taking a little break every once in awhile without going completely nuts is probably a good thing for gradual change and my overall sanity.

What do you think? When you’re trying to exercise regularly is it better to take a day off to rest once in awhile? Or do you think that it’s better to hit it every day to maintain momentum?
