|Oh yeah baby, this exercise thing is great !!|
So.. how far have we got with Ultra Simple Diet prep and getting to our list of TO DOs?
First for the GOOD news from Jan - she sent this to me via text messages today!
Jan:Hey are you sitting down? I WENT TO THE GYM!! Don't faint please. It actually felt good :). Me and Curves are a go again.
Excellent - too funny!!
It was rather funny es :)! Glad it was quiet so no one could hurt themselves watching me try and re-master the machines and the circuit!!
Yes good thing :)
Slight time lag ..
Stupid headache :) see it's that exercise stuff. I'm allergic!! :) Quick rest took it away.
Headache is due to oxygen to brain with exercise - not used to it :)
You will note how very supportive of each other we are!! Hoo Ha, Woo Hoo to Jan!!
Sheesh what a show off .. hmmphf
Well, as I have noted indirectly, I have Fibromyalgia and is one reason I have chosen the Ultra Simple Diet. As well it has been, what you call 'flaring' recently.
This morning, I awoke with pains radiating from tip of head to toes. Certain areas of my body were in worse pain than others, and becoming vertical was challenging. I did manage to sneak an extra 1 hr of sleep with neck pillow arranged so that could concentrate on deep breathing and relaxation. The breathing worked to help relax and also allowed me some additional slumber time, as I drifted back to sleep unintentionally. I then realized I was to be up early, as scheduled to go to daughter's for day to spend time with grandkids - a 2 hour drive.
Oh and I promised to make banana muffins. Oops!
I packed everything up, after quickly getting myself ready. Slugging back some yogurt and meal replacement smoothie, I was in car and on way. Oh ... I did stop at Tim Horton's for coffee, as really you expect me to go without caffeine on a day like today? It is medicinal!
The day went well, with the grandkids, although there was an issue with banana muffins - first time did not turn out. Not sure why, but 3 year old granddaughter seems to think "It happens." So we made some more and they turned out, just not my usual wonderful recipe.
Upon driving home after 7:30 PM, in the rain and dark - which causes my eyes to see mirages, I did arrive home safely, but tired. I did not walk my 15 minutes. Ugh.
I did however wear my running shoes - that counts right?
Moral of my story: Don't plan more than can reasonably do, and some days playing with the grandkids is all the exercise needed. After spending time with a 3 year old and 20 month old, I am tired but strangely stress-free.
TOMORROW: I SHALL WALK 15 MINUTES
Continuing on with TO DO LIST to prepare for Sunday, September 12, 2010 7 Day Cleanse and life altering experiment with food.
Oh, and GREAT WORK JAN!! YOU ARE MY HERO!!
