New Goals for a New Me

Friday, May 31, 2013

Yesterday I spent the day in PJs. Today I was dressed and out of the house by 7:30 AM. I had an MD appt in NY and didn't get home til 2:00 pm. Almost all of that time was spent waiting. During my wait I finished a book called "The Pleasure Trap" and the most interesting thing for me in that book was how plain water fasting will cure almost any disease....But you have to fast from between 17 days and 40 days. IT sounds fascinating. But my husband would have to do it to and my daughter would have to cook for herself. It would be very hard to have to cook for some people if I myself could not eat. Besides which, the other component is complete rest...It would be hard to have to work at anything if I'm supposed to be resting...and to me, COOKING IS WORK.

Then I started and finished a short book on de-cluttering a house. I'm psyched to undertake it but also nervous. How will I get rid of all the stuff I need to get rid of? How will I be able to give up my "stuff"...can I part with it? I know I need to. I really need to. I'm going to start small with just some areas that really bother me and need to be wed out and purged. I will be starting with that tomorrow. Today, I'm just too tired to consider it.

When I went out today I forgot to take my morphine and my other meds. I was a mess when I got home. REALLY hurting. Tonight I'm making salad for dinner and that's IT. I'm officially off duty.

Tomorrow I need to start exercising again. And I will begin my Project Pare Down. I will get this house into shape or I will die doing it. You can be sure: one of those two things will happen. :)

    Like all things, do your decluttering in moderation. Slow and steady wins the race! Have you anything of value that you might sell online to make some money? Turn that clutter into cash?
    Good luck with it, you can do it!!

    If I were you, I would tackle the de-cluttering on the days that you feel like you have more energy. Other days, you'll have to just take it easy. That's how this RA works on us. Ugh! Anyway, as far as fasting, I'd have a tough time doing that with all the meds. that I have to take. And with taking them on an empty stomach, oh no, body doesn't like that one bit. Nausea can start very quickly then. Not a pretty picture, but maybe you don't get effected like I do. Maybe you could do it and have success in the meantime. I remember when I was in high school, how I would fast for 3 days and feel so good afterward. I'd have just water and broth. Yes, I would wonder what our dr's would say to doing that. Interesting!

    It sounds like you've got a great plan for your house... a bit here and a bit there... (tho' I've found it easier said than done!) :)

    fasting water diet... what does your dr say about that?
