~ Living in Balance ~

Years of extreme stress took a toll on my body - I developed Fibromyalgia. Now, I'm working on getting back to "normal," which includes being able to walk without a cane. It's a slow, painful process, but I will succeed

* I will focus on the good in life, acknowledging the bad but not letting it control me.

* I will be thankful for what I can do, and not dwell on what I can't.

* I will live in the present, let go of the past, and work for a better future. ...

That's interesting about the B1. I take a B complex. My mother once advised me to take extra vitamin B because there was a lot going on and I had a lot of stress. I didn't really believe her (you know... she was my MOTHER! What did she know?) There came the day that I hadn't taken it, and I literally had the 4 o'clock slump. I was just exhausted. Then I realized I hadn't taken my "B" for the day. (I think it also helps my mood.)

My B complex provides what the manufacturer says is 240% of the daily requirement, but that's still only 3.6 mg. I do make sure I take it on the days that I have a lot to do.

On the activity tracker, I love it, especially the fact that it registers elliptical use. My Omni step tracker didn't budge on the elliptical. I'd get off, legs shaky, perspiring, and breathing deeply, and my pedometer would tell me... "nope, didn't do a thing!" LOL! To get the Spark Tracker to give me all the lights around feels like I just hit Broadway. SP does great with reinforcement of any positive move, doesn't it!

How did the experiment go? You last wrote on my anniversary, 2013, saying you were a test subject for vit. B-12 for your pain. Did it work? You were on Day 262 of an exercise streak on that day. Impressive!!!

Hope you're doing well.

Love your outdoor pictures, especially the beach. Makes me want to head out there myself, then I remember the 97 forecast for today, and the humidity due to the [inadequate] sprinkle this morning. However, going to Plymouth MASS this weekend with DH, hope to get out while I'm there.

I have a house to clean, pets to plan for, clothes to pack (and I need to buy some as well).... gotta climb over the obstacles first.
