Follow up on last Monday’s post…

So, how did I do?

Editing was done in the allotted time.

But not much else.

I could beat myself up. It wouldn’t do much good.

I spent part of the day today reviewing the past week and making plans for this week.

I’ve an opportunity to attend a conference, but there are problems to consider, like my back and C-PTSD. What could be a wonderful experience could end up a nightmare of pain and triggers.

I think I’m eating a little better. An improvement. My exercise fell off, as it always does every winter. I’m in the process of working myself back up to the level I was before winter set in. Unfortunately, I can’t blame it on snow. We didn’t have any. This happens to me every year, and I haven’t figured out a way to overcome it, yet.

Reviewing the week was helpful. I also made plans for this week. Some will succeed. Some won’t.

  1. Hugs….time off for good behavior?

    • 🙂 ((Ruth))

  2. Maybe your body needs a rest in winter? You know, like that article you shared recently about managing energy. I think it said something about accepting the seasons and working with them. 🙂 x

    • I was wondering the same thing. I think what frustrates me is the feeling of being useless during the winter. I keep fighting it… doing the same thing over and over… okay, I need to make a new plan for next winter. Thanks ((Kara))

      • You’re welcome ((Judy)) I’m in the same boat. I need to re-think my approach to winter completely. Maybe we need to look at it as a time of rest and replenishing. A bit like it happens with the soil 😉 x

        • I was thinking along the lines of a hibernating bear… not quite a happy thought. I like your idea better. 🙂

  3. Beating yourself up, as you said, would not be proactive. Every day is the chance to try again.

    • True. Funny how I know this but still need the reminder.

  4. The deal with Winter isn’t just snow, I think. The changes in light probably have a lot to do with our energy levels.

    • I agree. I’m looking into lights that mimic sunlight, and yet, I wonder if the body needs the season as much as the earth does…
