I had intended to write this morning about how Sweet Husband and I had been having some conversations about health – getting more active, watching our portion sizes, eating at home, generally being more mindful. Those are all things that we are in fact doing. Because we had those conversations, and we decided that it was time for us to make some changes. I think the important thing to emphasize here is that *we* had the conversations and *we* decided to make the changes.
These are things changes that I can make for us. I can only make changes for myself, and I’ve done that in the past. The thing is, though, that it is so much easier if SH and I are working together, striving towards the same goal. When I’m feeling discouraged, he can encourage me…and vice versa.
So we are working towards making those changes.
But tonight’s post isn’t about that.
I have felt like hell today. I got out this morning intending to do all the grocery shopping to be ready for the festivities on Friday…and to perhaps even get started on cooking some of it as well as cleaning the house. But at the first place I stopped I had a pretty intense seizure and it’s been downhill from there. I sent SH a text asking if he wanted to go for Chinese for lunch because it sounded like a good idea at the time, but it really wasn’t. When we got home, I laid down, and almost immediately went to sleep for about four hours. I never do that unless I’m not well. It feels like there should be an epic thunderstorm brewing outside, but my weather underground app isn’t popping anything up. I’m not sure what is going on.
Since waking up, I’m still not on top of my game, which is not particularly good as there are a million and one things I need to be doing right now. Like baking a blueberry pie or a strawberry cake. Or finishing the laundry. Or sweeping. Or dusting.
I suppose, though, that one aspect of wellness is listening to your body. Mine is clearly telling me that right now I need to be more concerned with resting and taking care of myself than worried about the milllion and one things on my to-do list. (perhaps the to-do list is way too long, and that’s part of the problem. Hmmmmm…)As soon as I get this load of laundry folded, I think I’m curling up in the bed with SH and hoping that tomorrow is a better day.
