Today is a total rest day. Although I ran errands and have moved today, I did not exercise. I found exercising the last two days to be invigorating and reminders that I truly love exercising and fitness. But what I also realized is that my body prefers it if I exercise every other day.
Yes, I am flared up. It is not as bad as it could be (which is good). My lower back is flared which is mostly the endometriosis. My general body pain is from the workout and a bit of fibromyalgia pain. CFS is flared up and my face and neck are hot and my cheeks are flaming red and hot. And I am an icicle from the neck down. My neck is also sore which is when the EBV gets mad and I am extra fatigued. BUT it isn’t as bad as it could be. In all honesty, it isn’t close to the worst I have felt. So even though I am flared up today, it is still a win.
Will I exercise tomorrow? Probably. But I will decide what to do for exercise tomorrow and maybe tone things down a little or exercise every other day instead of two days in a row.
I plan on cooking basmati rice in chicken broth for dinner and I feel that will help remedy things a bit.
And, as a remedy for my ongoing path to more self-compassion, I got my Kuan Yin and Dreamcatcher Alex and Ani Bracelets in the mail today! Totally loving them. I got the Kuan Yin bracelet to serve as a reminder to be compassionate towards myself (something I struggle with). And the dreamcatcher because I love them and all things Native American. I tend to feel bad about money when I spend it but I decided to embrace the purchase and enjoy it when I can afford to do it. Namaste.
