Another Day, Another Dip in the Pool

Friday, July 26, 2013

So, I continue my spark streak of posting blog entries to no real purpose. But, I did have a dip in the pool today, despite the creeping exhaustion. Now, I'm sore and tired. And I really need to eat something. But, alas, I have no energy.

Still, I suppose I must keep at it. For the good of my joints.

    Hang in there! It's all we can do right? I'm hoping better days are in store for you! emoticon

    I've read a few of your recent blogs. I don't usually surf the community (exhibit A; my scrawny friend list), but your writing drew me in. You are obviously very intelligent and articulate. Fibro is not for weenies. I don't have it but was tested for it once and did my research while awaiting results. Anyway...... I feel from your writing that you are sooooo close to something, like it's on the tip of your fingers.

I'm a very practical person (Engineer type), so with the facts I see you struggling with, I offer the following. The tip is free and probably worth what you paid.


Great you have a handle as to when you're "up" and when you're "down". Use the former to invest in the latter - even if it means giving up some ideals. If you struggle with breakfast, make it the day (or days) before at a higher energy time. Oat bran, oatmeal, bran muffins, etc., can be cooked ahead of time - several days worth - refrigerated, and nuked when you need it. My recent favorite is "egg cups" from spark recipes. I gave up my ideal of fresh-cooked eggs in exchange for a super quick, portable, healthy breakfast (I'm also loving the fiber mini cakes from Trader Joe's, but they're a little spendy $$).

The extra time gained is nothing compared to the reprieve from scolding oneself.

Looking forward to reading more.

    Yes we must keep at for our joints and bones as well as better health. Good for you getting into the pool.
