Take that

Honestly, I’m not sure that there is anything more disturbing that going downstairs to say goodnight and finding your 68 year old father and 74 year old uncle engrossed in a Take That concert…

On that note, my past week has been good and bad in equal measure.  Good in the sense that I am turning the corner on my fatigue issues; bad in the sense that the fibromyalgia has triggered again with the weather turning.

I did have a lovely lunch with my old CFS support group.  It was great to get caught up.  I’m also looking forward to this week which of course ends with Christmas Day.  It’ll be nice to spend the time with family.


Catching Up

It has been another rest day but tomorrow is definitely for studying.

In fact, today has been very nice as I’ve done nothing but what I’ve felt like with the exception of the hour doing Wii Fit.  “You will it enjoy”, I tell myself as I press ‘retry’ on the Advanced Steps for another go. “It’s good for you”, is the other phrase I use.  Actually, it isn’t all that bad once I’m doing it – it’s just the ‘doing it’ that I have to talk myself into and according to the little board cartoon I am losing weight so at least things are going in the right direction.  I’m just never going to love exercising.  Whatever rush of endorphins or other ‘feel-good’ hormones that are supposed to happen evidently don’t for me.

Besides Wii, I’ve also spent some time in the last twenty-four hours organising catching-up with old friends.  I’m actually quite impressed that I’m still in touch with quite a few of my old colleagues and even more impressed that I’m still in touch with quite a few of my old friends from school.  Staying in contact does require an effort though but it is very worthwhile.  I need to do more of it.  (Hence the New Year’s resolution).

Finally, yes, I am trying out yet another blog style.  The header is actually a picture I took when on holiday in Devon rambling so it seemed appropriate. 🙂
