Did well with the extended workout yesterday - NO dizziness issues whatsoever (even got out of the house to do some needed lessons - felt darned good to actually be able to drive - and comfortably)!
Just goes to show how important it is NOT to take health for granted!
Felt a twinge of something this morning, though - again, there's a very stuffed feeling in the nose, and some dry month, so I'll continue to treat the sinus on an OTC basis and make sure I stay hydrated.............thank goodness there are NO plans for the rest of the week! Don't need to be at an event and start to feel badly - nuh, uhh!
Enjoy your Saturday, Sparkies!

ANOTHER dizzy spell while doing floor exercises! Cleared up in about an hour or two, but still - WTH! Suspect my sinuses were a bit more clogged up than I suspected, and looking back on it, perhaps I didn't consume as much H2O as I regularly would have - $#!@# "h**lidays* and routine changes - all for the birds as far as I'm concerned!
Feeling OK right now but I'm watching myself like a hawk, for sure!
I hope all celebrating Sparkies had a wonderful Christmas!

........for me, this is key to my keeping grounded, focused and somewhat sane.......
I have fallen off of my eating plans quite a bit, and I suspected I would be at great risk for doing so due to family stress - the one good thing that came about yesterday was that I had a good, calm, rational, "air-clearing" chat with someone who directly contributed to a very stressful day last week..........it appears to have helped, at least somewhat.........there will need to be monitoring on my part, along with follow-up actions as needed - but for now, I am somewhat cool, calm and collected.........now if I can keep it together despite the painful knowledge that this time off is going to cost me *literally* - and I'm NOT GOOD with that! (Oh, oh - here comes another stress wave!)
I wish TV networks would back off a bit on the never-ending holiday fare - I tend to avoid that as much as possible so as to avoid a negative mood swing (I also prefer certain fare that is NOT of a holiday nature) - so having to work to avoid that stuff is also causing some irritation..........for now the tube is off and I'm listening to some music, and occasionally an amateur radio net that streams online (cool to hear human voices chatting pleasantly - such a relief from the negativity coming out of talk radio and panel TV shows - no need for that, I gotta tell ya)!
Things are quiet here - am doing as much as I can wrt my "normal routine" which gives me needed comfort - why should Christmas be treated any differently in that regard? (For the record, I have no small children in my life and I am *not* a "grand", and have very little in the way of extended family close by so a quiet Christmas is pretty much guaranteed........)
Will need to redouble my efforts to get back on track after 1/1 - as much as I don't like to use that day as a starting point, there's been too much damage to my motivation and momentum to pick myself up at this very minute - but being mindful of my failures and needs will be a good start.........
For those who celebrate, I wish you all a wonderful Christmas (and Hanukkah, too, of course)! Enjoy your day!

MUST treat this day as any other day, in order to save what's left of my sanity........'nuff said........

,,,,,,,and it's showing in my eating, once again..........
Think it'll be in my best interest to put the Sparkin' aside somewhat until Jan. 2.......I am just so NOT feelin' in this $#!@# "season"..........all I want is for this time to pass quickly...........the only good thing is that things are quiet where I spend my daylight hours (and right now, as well - as long as nobody else is up and about whose presence I have to *endure*).........
Yeah, it sounds like I'm "quitting", but for now I think I just need to back off a bit for purposes of stress-reduction.............if only I had a place where I could just hibernate for a bit.............
One friendly bit of advice before I stop: If you know anyone who has to work during holiday periods (no matter what the reason), please show extra special kindness and compassion - even if they appear to be "OK" working, you never know their full story or situation - and as we all know, these seasons are difficult for many of us, especially for those who *CAN'T* get away from it all.........
