Oh Sweet Off-day

Rest is so important. Especially for those of you fellow athletes who just love to roar and want to push, push, push. Rest is just as important as a training day.

I have 2 rest days. One of the rests is a total rest day, the other I will do something fun like kayak, or take a walk with my mom, or wrestle with my husband.

Off days I like to cut my protein and carb cals back a bit. Usually I load up based on my workouts, so since I am not working out, it makes sense to cut back the load.

Example: if my usual is a tuna sandwhich on whole grain, I’ll eat tuna with 4-5 saltines instead of bread.
