Good afternoon Sparklers! I hope all is well with each and every one of you and you're having a fabulous day!
I, on the other hand, don't think I knocked on wood hard enough yesterday. Do you ever have those days when you have the best of intentions and plan on doing so well and for some reason, everything seems to go south....really, really fast? Well, that's what happened to me yesterday. I had my meals planned out and was able to follow through. And I know I shared that I was going to attempt to work out yesterday and listen to my body and take it as it comes, make adjustments if needed and move on. So I ate dinner last night and all of sudden I was really tired. To the point that when I sat down I would close my eyes and sleep! It was only 6:00! So I thought forcing myself to get up and move would make me feel better. So I attempted going outside and enjoying the beautiful day. Then, after a little while, my allergies kicked in. Not a good idea. So I went back inside and decided to succumb to sleep. Maybe it was what my body needed. Can't imagine since I haven't been staying up late or anything, but okay. I accepted this. I woke up around 11:00 p.m. with a headache. AGAIN! And even right now. Headache....again. It was really bad when I woke up this morning, but I took all my pills--allergy medicine, vitamins, and Excedrin. I thought this would take care of it, but alas, it has not. I wondered if going outside may have triggered something. I don't know. Or maybe it's the devil trying to squander my goals. I'm starting to think the latter is the real issue here! Lord knows I've been praying quite a bit this morning for my head to feel better!
There are days I feel lost. Like I started this journey and I actually started out well, but somewhere along the line there have been numerous bumps and obstacles thrown in the way. I know this is something that happens from time to time in our journeys. But I have never been this 'out of commission' before. Usually, if I catch something it is done within a week and I am back to normal. My hubby likes to remind me that we are getting older and these things happen to older people. I do not really think of myself as old and I am not sure 'these things happen to older people'. I am 45. I do not think I should be down and out for this long due to my age! I also know many people in this area (Ohio River Valley-midwest) have been dealing with this their entire lives. I have lived here since 2005. I did not have allergies, sinuses, bronchitis, and other respiratory issues before moving here. I am not used to it. I have many friends that know what they are allergic to and simply get shots every week. I don't think I fully understood what they were going through until now. My physician also told me after living here for so long it eventually happens. Hmmm....moving to Arizona is starting to sound like a good idea! lol
Oh, how I wish there were a shortcut! lol But then what kind of lessons would we miss?
Thanks for letting me vent. Everyone have a fabulous day and enjoy it to the fullest!
