Yep, I've got chronic mono. It's making me tired and dazed throughout the day and it's tough on me. I haven't been eating well and I'm rarely able to "Ready, Set... MOVE!" like I want to. Just got done on the elliptical tonight so I feel good about that - I'm impressed I could do that, especially considering how much I wanted to simply plop into bed and sleep.
So I guess that is taking care of myself. I need to go back and keep track of all I eat and ensure that I am getting enough protein. Since I don't eat meat, that can be tough on me. I also need to make sure I'm eating enough fat - I guess the mega "No Fat! Fat is BAD" craze has gotten me (I buy "treats" that are low in fat and HIGH in carbs). Shame on me!
Damn this frickin' Chronic Mono. It creeps up when I'm not taking care of myself and not getting enough vitamin D. It's actually a blessing in disguise - doesn't let me just get lazy and not take care of myself. Ha! I love finding the positive amongst a crappy situation.
I'm gonna simply relax, read the rest of my book and go to bed early.
