Day 26 of 100 Days of Gratitude
Tuesday, March 21, 2017
Well, I have't had a day like today since ....the beginning of January. January was crammed getting everything done before leaving home for a while. During the last 4 weeks, I've been working really hard to lose weight (11#). I'm eating as healthy as possible when away from home, riding a bike as vigorously as I can and/or striving to walk 7,500 to 10,000 steps per day. And also working hard emotionally in volunteer tasks.
Today it rained all day. I just didn't fight it. I stayed indoors and accomplished some tasks I've been avoiding, tried to nap, but couldn't. DH was occupied elsewhere during the day & is gone tonight. This reduces interaction with others 100% and I think I really, really needed a day "OFF".
I'm trying not to feel guilty, but I think my body and mind needed a break. I'm so grateful that my life allows for this after decades of high demands. I'm aware that I'm very fortunate.
