If you don't know who the Blerch is, check out the Oatmeal.com on running. I have a t-shirt (that i only recently fit into!) That on one side says I don't believe in the Wall (something runners talk about) and on the other side says I believe in the Blerch. I do. I don't normally hit a wall I have a constant, non-stop little imp following me around telling me to quit, to slow down, to go eat some cake and donuts... But I'm not going to listen. I'm going to keep going.
Yesterday ended up being a 'chronic illness day.' I guess it was insomnia that kept me up all night and not the start of a manic phase. Too bad, I could really use a manic phase to get me going.
So this long list of things I made on Evernote yesterday, I'm going to work on today. I'm probably going to have to take an early nap, I have a hint of a migraine coming on and I have to nip it in the bud or it will take me out for the whole day again. I don't want that. I want to be able to be productive.
I think that walking is going to be one of my main daily goals. Walking in the morning and in the afternoon when the pavement isn't too hot, so I can train my dog while I walk. The boots I want to get her are expensive, so will have to wait a while, but they are good ones, I don't want to buy her cheap ones that won't protect her paws properly. Mark, the trainer, has given me new hope that my dog Hope will be able to be trained as as service dog, it's just going to take a firm hand and a bit more time. And lots more training, I think she just went #2 in the house again. Darnit. I have trained her to ring a bell to inform me she needs to go outside, so either I didn't her the bells (I got a thing that has a ton of bells on it so I can hear it all over the house) or she just decided to go and not ring the bell. Darn.
We are having a hard time right now with training her to go potty on command. I can't just let her out in the back yard to go, we have some bunnies that decided to make a burrow in the small wooded area we have and she had gotten baby bunnies twice so far. We were hoping the Mom would move them, but she did not. Plus, she has to learn to go on command, so that she doesn't go when we are in stores or wherever.
So, today, the plan is to work on my to do list that I made yesterday. And to work out. Start cleaning the exercise room and my bedroom, those are my main areas of concern right now. I need to shampoo the rug in the living room and really don't want to because it is loud and when my injections for my migraines wear off, as they have now, my head becomes super sensitive to loud noises.
I forgot to weigh and measure and stuff yesterday, so I'm going to today, so look for another post with that on it later today. I've got a lot of computer work to do, but I'm going to make that wait till after I get the cleaning and exercising and morning walking done.
Hope you have a Spark*tastic day!!
