Kitty 7:52 CI

Woke up not feeling well, which before PA would have led me not to get out of bed until the afternoon.  The whole day would have slipped away into the void.  But I had to get up for the 7:30CT phone check-in meeting, and that changed everything.

Top priority for this morning is to give my body what it needs so I can keep moving forward.  Second top priority for the day is to work on PM and URD.  Yesterday I got a system in place so now those are going much more smoothly, and they are not so overwhelming.

  • Breakfast done!
  • Stretch, begin ice/heat for injuries done!
  • Morning prayers / meditation done!
  • 11:30/10:30CT Phone CI meeting done!
  • 1 section of PM done! total of 3 done so far.
  • 2 sections of URD - started
  • 3:30/2:30CT Phone CI meeting done!
  • Laundry (if feeling physically up to it) - Nope, rescheduled
  • Evening PT done!
  • Evening meditation session - Did not get extended session and this threw off my bedtime routine.  Oops.
  • 9:30/8:30 CT Phone CI meeting done!
  • Evening prayers
  • Get to bed early  - Not as early as I had hoped, but OK

Journey 8:45

Yesterday was not the best day.   I had a lot of trouble focusing and although I was going thru the motions of working, I didn't really start getting anything accomplished until after 3 pm.  I'm blaming it on my sore foot since I did exercise for the first time in two weeks and I felt tired and frustrated.    So, putting yesterday behind me, and getting started on today.  I went swimming this morning which was a great way to start the day but man, now I could use a nap.   I'm hoping if I stay busy today I will be tired enough to go to bed early.   My schedule is all out of whack since I haven't been going to the gym in the mornings and I'm going to bed and getting up later and later each day, and not eating properly either.   My foot is much better and it's time to SNAP OUT OF IT.   :grin:

I also made major progress on Project V on MONDAY and got past the obstacle that I've been fighting for a week or more.   So now that problem is solved, and now I need to figure out what to do next and that's always a trouble time for me.  When I'm going along in the middle of a project I do much better than transitions,  beginning, and ending.   Knowing that it will be difficult, I'll use the timer today and work for 20-minute periods with 10 minute breaks.   I feel like I'm getting away with something, only really working 40 minutes out of every hour, but something about that 20 minute time frame is really good for me.   It's not too long or too short.  If I get distracted, I look at the timer and can say to myself ' oh, only 11 more minutes, I can keep going until the end of this time period and THEN I can look up that word or put that plate in the dishwasher.

Well I'm rambling on this morning.   Off to make my todo list and then check off those items one by one, eh?   Have a great Wednesday.

u can do jo!

You are always such an encourager here, glad to repay when you're a tad off, as happens to us all sometimes. Injuries and illness mess me up badly too on the procrastination front, hard to maintain routines - which reminds me of a new sig I want to put on my profile ... hugs and grins to you today Journey!

That is a great sig!  *relates*

((Keep going, Jo))

I really needed to read your post today to remind me to keep going, even when the body doesn't want to cooperate.  Thank you so much!  Have a wonderful Wednesday and keep that Pomodoro Timer going!

e's May 19th 2010

good to be up this morning, although its raining and I would like to be snuggled in bed with a book and something warm to drink. So far I am pleased with the puttering about I have done, having accomplished making the bed, having done my teeth, put away dishes and prepped the others for washing, set out meds, put away laundry and signed on to to set up my to do list. The house is chaotic from yesterday's paper whirlwind, so before I start my most important tax, filing A's taxes and fafsa, I will need to spend some time organizing it all. I am thankful to this fellowship that I can do this one task at a time and can see the evidence that one task at a time adds up to recovery.

my alarm is going off for the phone check in, so that is next to do.

Have a great day everyone

The way you put this made me smile. Are you a hamster? ;). I hope you have a great shop.

I am glad you are feeling a little better. I always get colds and flu after big stresses. I think it is the bodies way of making you rest and relax so take extra good care of yourself. You deserve it.

Hopefully you will soon be fully fit. 





Thank you Helen

Thank you Helen. I have been compared to a hamster before and am about to curl up into a ball and try to get some sleep. The tiredness I feel is emotional as well as physical and to do with the ending of the long business/legal dispute and finding that I don't need an operation after all. Even good news take some getting used to.

Love and Peace

Hi guys!

Thanks for starting the thread PutmynikesonWorking from home today, a much needed brake from the office (this is my third week), I've been working till 7-8 almost every day. Actually feels good to stay home today and recharge my energy so I can kick butt tomorrow instead. Still need to get some things done though. The weather is sunny and the trees are golden green so I want to finish my work day quickly so I can enjoy the rest of the day outside on a blanket.
