chugging away and chugging along

Sunday, September 15, 2013

I seem to have had a bit of a setback. I was feeling a lot better and began doing a few things around the house - nothing too ambitious ... a little vacuuming ... and I woke up yesterday with a very sore throat and things seem to have settled in my chest now. I'm taking it easy again today - I filled up the blender with lots of fruits and vegs and I'm drinking my smoothie (spinach, apple, orange, pineapple, pomogranate/blueberry juice).

I was hoping to make it to the studio today but it doesn't appear that will happen. I'll put on a load or two of laundry though and dishes are already done in the dishwasher ... thank goodness for my machines.

Yesterday I started a new sketchbook and began doodling some inspirational quotes. My main goal is to reclaim my health. I'm seeing a nutritionist soon. I know I have some food sensitivities and I want to deal with this. My scales are showing some improvement. I've missed three yoga classes but really hope to make the next one on Thursday. Fingers crossed improvement is steady from hereon in.

I feel ok though. I am doing my best.

Hope everyone has a great week.

    I wonder if "setbacks" come with the old saying "Fall-back",, as in setting the clocks back. I too have had a set back with my job.....seems the ol' gray mare ain't what she used to be. At least that's the excuse the principal gave me when she removed me from my position as an aide in the behavioral classroom.
    So it's back to the job search, but for now will be subbing until something more permanent comes along.
    Glad to see your sketching and doodling, looks fun and keeps your mind alive!

    I sure hope this isn't a setback for long. Your smoothie sounds very nutritious, so I really hope that helps to get your back to good health. Be patient with yourself. Apparently your body needs some more time to gain strength. I hope this week is a good one for you! Take care.
