Today I'm not doing so great. I'm still motivated. Still excited. Still making an effort. It's my health that's got me down today. I just can't seem to get the energy to function when it feels like my tummy is eating itself from the inside out. You know that scene in Alien where the alien bursts out of the girls stomach? Imagine it. Imagine how that would feel. You doing it? That's what it feels like almost daily most of the day. Some days are better than others, this just isn't one of them.
I'm not going to let it get me down. Like I said, still motivated. I've got a competition going on I can't afford to have "sick days". Don't worry I'm not aiming to over do it. I don't want to make things worse, but every time I get a couple minutes of energy I'm busting out some dance moves. I figure 10 mins here 10 mins there, IS going to add up and every little bit counts. I do have to make sure I don't cross that tricky line into over doing it though, I have a tendency to do that often. With my health problems I never know when I'll be able to function and when I wont, so those days that I can get out and do stuff I tend to do as much as possible and pay for it the next day (or sometimes whole weeks). It's something I'm working on. To find that balance. I had to ask myself, "Maybe if I didn't over do it maybe I'd have more 'good' days". Still don't have the answer but I'm working on it.
Goals for today:
Get up and move 5-10 minutes whenever able.
Drink 10 glasses of water instead of 8.
Call dad and taunt him
