Living Intentionally

Thursday, April 04, 2013

I'm sure people mean different things when they say this. For me, right now, this means making intentional decisions that help me succeed and proceed in life, instead of being a slave to food, cravings, pain or fatigue. Some things (the pain and fatigue) are something I only have a tiny bit of control over. But I can choose how to handle the pain and how to react in the face of it.

My food choices have been very good this week. And my blood sugars have reflected that. Every time I get tempted to stray, I think of what my blood sugar will do in response. I am exercising routinely. Right now I'm in between flares and am enjoying exercising without pain but even when I am in pain and it wouldn't hurt me to do so, I am there exercising anyway. My back muscles are still a bit sore but perhaps because I've been going in the hot tub for two days or perhaps because I haven't been working in the garden for a couple of days, things are doing better.

    Good job, keep up the great work. I have been working out more lately and I'm feelingn it too--Fibro pain is the pits. Unfortunately, many people wonder why we have these problems with pain and fatigue, as we look healthy. I hope they never have to find out by becoming another Fibro person.
