The problem with starting to feel better after a couple of days out of it is that the temptation to do a little too much is just too strong. Thatís what caught up with me today, and itís why I donít feel any better tonight than I did last night at this time. Even so, Iíd have to say this was a better day and Iím definitely on the way back.
When I woke up this morning with a little more energy and feeling strong again, I could hardly justify another day of inactivity. The only option was to go through my day as if it were another Monday. And thatís what I did, until I hit the wall and started to slide backwards.
The Boss even told me to take a break, so I must have needed it. And I did get a second wind, after turning off the phone and kicking back for an hour. Apparently I didnít learn anything from the morning session, though, because I quickly ran out of gas for the second time, and this time the headache that dogged me all weekend was back, too.
So Iíve resolved to conserve my progress as much as I can. Iíll have some kind of tickler to remind myself to slow down every so often. Tomorrow maybe Iíll set the kitchen timer, and take a little nap every time it goes off. I donít want to lose what Iíve gained. I definitely donít want to go back to anything like the way I felt most of Saturday.
