Taking a Few Days Off
Friday, March 13, 2009
I'm taking a few days off the Spark routine to rest up and - hopefully - get some energy back! I have some allergies that wipe me out every spring, and the early time change has made them worse this year. Even tracking things on Spark and responding to messages is a drain right now, so I'll do what I can and then get back to the routine when I feel better.
Just last week, I could spend 20 minutes or longer at a time walking on the treadmill; yesterday, it was all I could do to last 4 minutes!
I have Stage IV Sarcoidosis, and, although it's in remission, the damage it has done to my lungs is permanent. Sometimes, I just get tired and have to pretty much stop everything until I get some energy back. I'll be following the nutrition plan, so who knows, I may even lose some weight doing nothing but the daily household chores. The thing is - I've been through this before; I know what I need to do, and I know my situation will get better and I'll be back on track soon.
