I did really well with the increased level of activity I mentioned in my last post. I achieved everything I planned and dealt with a few unexpected events as well. But… although I didn’t crash and burn, I was feeling somewhat overstretched by Sunday night.
Avoiding the temptation to push on regardless, I booked a supermarket delivery so that after enjoying tea and chat with a friend on Monday morning I could step back into unplanned time again. Obviously I had to deal with the groceries when they arrived, but that wasn’t a big deal.
I feel a bit frustrated that I couldn’t keep the increased momentum up, but it’s a useful reminder not to be greedy. I’ve got two big exciting things to do – collecting my new glasses and getting a SIM card for my new-to-me iPhone, but both can be left until next week and it’s nice to have them to look forward to.
For now I need to prioritise rest, catching up on things at home and settling my gut which is beginning to protest after too many carb-heavy snacky meals. I’m feeling more lively tonight after two days of mostly lying down and grateful that my symptoms are at warning level rather than severe.
