I did some exercise from a SP DVD today. I also did a little with the resistance band. Still trying not to get too strenuous. I don't want to hurt my shoulders or low back. Still fighting the physical aliments. Now also fighting my mind.
The medication change hasn't taken affect yet. It will take awhile to fully affect me and help change my irrational thoughts and feelings. I am just thankful that I am able to take something when I really need it. I have also been using my doTERRA essential oils on my back and neck. I have learned which ones help with inflammation and pain and I can reapply as often as necessary. Unlike a pain pill that I would have to wait to take affect!!
I know getting in a warm pool or hot tub would help. Not in the right place mentally to go to the gym and hot tub or even go and exercise. I hope to do my new beginner's yoga DVD later this afternoon. I will shut the bedroom door, so Snickers doesn't play with my mat or try to do yoga with me!!
It is so funny when he is around when I do yoga!! He thinks he has to be under my feet or scratching the mat. It is not expensive, but I am always thinking I might fall or worse yet...fall on him!! I would probably squish him!!
Anyway, I feel a little better today because the sun is out in full force!! I always feel better when the sun is shining. Especially in the winter as it doesn't always shine and then I don't even open my blinds. What is the use...not much light comes in then.
I am below my calories and fat so far today. My sodium is up a little high, but probably because of the tortilla chips and cottage cheese. I guess cottage cheese has more sodium in it than pickles. Wow!!
Well, going to go get the mail. Have a great afternoon! If you see sun, bask in it!!
