It’s Been One Of Those Days, Again

Char lying down, looking drained. Title reads: It's been one of those days, again. Personal Update

​Today is one of those days... I've overdone things this week. Went out to GP on Monday and although I was in wheelchair, it knocked me hard. As if that wasn't enough, I then also went into Sainsbury's afterwards to get my meds. 

More...

I should have stayed in the hot car rather than going with into the busy supermarket, but the pharmacy had a delay in preparing my medication, so we thought the cooler shop would be better than the hot car.

Then the next day I somehow almost doubled my step count! Not sure how that happened, I was in the house all day. I really felt it in the evening though, so much pain... Not good. 

Last night my knees were on fire again and today I'm just drained. I didn't even wake up until 10am! That is unusual.

Silly me! I'm always too enthusiastic when I'm feeling good and then I overdo it. I'm sure a full day of complete rest will be good for my body though.

​So, no step goals today, just rest goals! 

Regardless of how weak I'm feeling, it's a gorgeous day again, one can't be anything but happy on a day like today! 

Hugs, Char
