My absence hasn't been as long this time. I was about to give up on trying though, when I had an email from one of the lovely sparkpeople telling me not to give up on things. And since she had it far harder than I do, I feel I should listen to that advice. Yes, I've been flaring again--pain, foggy head, exhaustion, loss of will to go on. But, I have an advantage, because I know how I want my life to look...and it isn't an impossible picture. I want to keep to an eating, sleeping and exercise schedule...8 out of 10 times. A simple 80/20 rule for life, which is reasonable, I think. However, every night I stay up late, eat as a result and then sleep my day away...or try to function in a fog. I have tried figuring out where the problem lies and I have failed. But perhaps the Zen Habits guy is right, and I just need to pick something I would like changed and change that one thing. For me, I think, that should be breakfast. I should try to have breakfast, oatbran, fruit, soy milk...every morning at a reasonable hour. After that...back to bed if I want.
