Yesterday was a complete wash. I had zero energy. I was in severe pain all day long. My get up and go, got up and went.
Today I'm pretty much my new normal. Tired and in pain but not as bad as yesterday. I think part of the pain is this frontal system that will be moving through. Round one of thunderstorms is happening now.
I am recovering from the sprained shoulder and whiplash pretty good. My bruises are no longer visible but the chest area is still tender to touch. I have to watch what I lift.
I talked to my brother who's my traveling buddy. He's making plans for January. So far four weeks in New smyrna beach Florida. He's talking another week further south on the Gulf side. He mentioned Sanibel Island area which excited me because I have wanted to go there. So we'll see what he comes up with.
Slowly getting the house cleaned up. This lift limit is keeping me from most of that.
I did get my checkbook mostly sorted out. It did not balance but I'll work on it again later. My brain was overwhelmed.
I've been slowly typing up my recipes for a new cookbook I am writing. It's taking longer because my eyes are getting tired plus my allergies are through the roof.
My brother mentioned that part of my exhaustion could be related to the humidity and heat we've been experiencing. Our heat indexes are 110+ this past week. The other day my son and I ran a couple quick errands and the actual temperature was 100, so no telling what the heat index was. That's probably what zapped my energy completely out. That and babysitting for several days after I got home when I wasn't feeling up to par.
I'm hoping to get out and walk after the temperature drops this week. I may try a Leslie Sansone walking video if I have the energy.
I need to make an appointment with my primary doctor. I'm overdue for my appointment.
My food has been all over the place lately. I'm just trying to figure out what my body is needing and eating accordingly. I'm still tracking everything to hold myself accountable.
I hope everyone is doing well. Take care of yourself. We can do this. Sometimes you have to stop, evaluate what is happening in your life and change your direction for a short while. The road to success is never a straight line. There will be twists and turns, setbacks, tears but also joy and success. Keep yourself accountable. Track everything you put in your mouth. Most of all love yourself where you are right this minute. That makes you feel better and helps in your continuing success. Sending you all love and hugs and prayers. Thank you for your support and prayers. ♡♡♡
