How much is too much?

My body hurts
I have worked out 3 times in the past 2 days, and it is only 9 am.

I should have listened to my body and skipped my 5 am workout today. It didn't make me feel any better, it actually only made me feel worse.

I am sitting here and every muscle is aching and I feel completely wiped out in general.

I am rundown from overexertion


I pushed myself to take 5 am boot camp yesterday even though I had Power X last night.
 I did it because two of my friends were doing both, if they can I can, right?

Wrong

Everyone is different.

They work out twice a day way more often then I do.
Our schedules are different, our bodies are different and our level of endurance is different.

Sometimes I need to realize I am not like everyone else and I need to do whats right for me and tell my guilty conscience to shut up. 

This is an important lesson for all of us. 
LISTEN TO YOUR BODY
No workout is worth hurting yourself
No weigh in is worth starving yourself



However, as sore and tired as I am. I feel great. 
I pushed through 3 grueling workouts and I am taking a much needed rest day tomorrow because Saturday will be spent walking all around Philly!
