feeling better today

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

I'm feeling better today. Still sore but not as bad. I'm paying more attention to my food and drink again as well as other remedies that I seem to need after my surgery. My body is just different so I have to listen to it. I think that is the key. Sometimes, I have selective hearing so I guess I need to listen every minute of the day to my body. So, I need to journal and keep track of what i'm eating and when; also, when I drink and when to stop drinking before and after meals.

I need to do my exercise when I am stressed and just get up for a 10 minute walk at least 3 times a day for now. Until my pouch and all my innerds are healed, I need to take it easy on the lifting and organizing of my office and supplies, etc.

I need to pamper myself sometimes with a bubble bath, lotion or some other non food item like getting a pedicure when I have the patience to sit there.

I am going to try all these things today, in fact, i need to make myself a checklist to mark them off. *note to self*

I am so happy I have the support of my spark friends to encourage me along my path.

    Glad you are feeling better! Yes, you have to take care of yourself - and you will find that it will become more and more important to you as you continue on your journey. I found my "voice" after swallowing so much of my feelings for years.
    Keep making time for yourself!!

    Glad today is better. It takes a while to get used to the new "workings". The journal is a good idea. In fact my team suggest that to the patients.
    Good luck it will get better. emoticon emoticon
