How is it possible to overdo without doing much?
Tuesday, October 27, 2009
By the time I went to bed last night, I found that I had done too much for the day. I looked at my day, and compared to what I ahve been doing, it was nothing.
Taking into consideration the injury, it was a large combination of things. The long walk without assistance, living room to bath to kitchen to living room. The walk to the mailbox with the cane, the many trips to the bathroom (I am drinking my water!), and to cap it off, a trip out of the house to go to dinner since DH didn't want to cook, and there was a trip to the bathroom there, too.
As I said, nothing momentus and huge. So I took my painkillers and went to bed. Allowed myself to sleep as long as needed. Mmm, felt decadent. Then I took one pain pill to start my day. I have been taking it easier, hoping to recover from yesterday and use it as a strengthening exercise. It is hard to sit still. Those of you who know me know how true this is.
My calories yesterday were a tad low, but only by 40 calories, so I'm not worried.
So I am learning to be patient. My new saddle will go to the show in Scottsdale that I was supposed to go to this weekend, and my coach will pick it up. I understand it's beautiful and the small piping of purple in it is stunning. I just have to be patient for it, too.
Looking at it, it's all about patience isn't it?
