Good Morning World!

Saturday, February 01, 2014

My fibro is flaring today and I am very stressed but I have decided to take a positive approach to this new month. Lots of fun/exciting/stressful things are going on but that is just my life so I can either be out of sorts and let the blues take over or I can start with a smile and look for the brightness of a new day and a new month. It is so nice to not have darkness when I look out each morning now. I really think we underestimate how much we need the sun and fresh air. I have never been an " outdoor" girl but that may be changing. Funny how perceptions of things change as we age. Looking forward to reporting back in a few days on the positive things in my life.

    I have fibro too, and I totally get the idea of needing a little sun (metaphorically speaking) in our lives. Beautiful post.

    I also live with fibro and it can be difficult to find something good out of a day when your dealing with such debilitating pain. I can't even look out my window as the sun bothers my eyes, heck the light of the TV bothers my eyes I have to have the blinds shut all the time and use sunglasses as long as I'm awake.
So yes it's positive that you can actually look out of your window and enjoy a sunny day.
I hope the flare up isn't too bad and eases up for you, I'm also in a flare up right now this weather and temps going up and down is a killer for fibro sufferers. Let me just add this if your drinking anything with aspartame emoticon it really worsens fibro flare ups and the pain is even more tremendous... (includes diet sodas, flavored waters, crystal light, equal, sweet and low)...

Monitor and Adjust

Wednesday, September 11, 2013

For years as a teacher this was almost a mantra. You never know when plans go right out the window. It seems appropriate to make that statement on this day in particular, 9-11. So many plans were destroyed or at the very least postponed that day. SO... since I couldn't walk as "normal" today, I will walk later and reflect.

This fourth day might have been a little easier than the past three. I know that in a few days my morning walks will have to be adjusted due to events happening but... I will find a way to get in my time ( treadmill possibly). I do enjoy walking outdoors more.


One step at a time

Third day in a row walking. Progress is made on the move more front. I actually ran a little today within the short walk. Slow and steady.... this will be a life time effort not a short term event. Thinking I will add some weights as was suggested to me. I have been thinking of it and now seems to be a good time.

I loved the song Onward Christian Soldiers when I was little. I feel a little like that today with my weight battle (health battle). It is a fight! So onward I go hoping to win the war not just the daily battle!

    Look into strength training - muscle is healthier & burns more calories - emoticon
