Today was a day of minor victories and achievements for me.
I got up and did a quick clean. Then spent a quarter hour delighting in being evil to shazgirl (nudge her to find out details). Then exercised and had a glorious shower. Attacked my email, trying to get it down from several thousand to something more manageable, one of the prices paid by my severely reduced capacity to concentrate. Then I laid down for while. When I got up, I watched George Reeves as Superman, ate, did shop stuff, had another lay down, sorted a little bit more, did my meditation/visualisation work, set the washing going, turned the mattress... and collapsed.
What is good about this is, it wasn't actually a high energy day. And on any ordinary day I might have gotten one or two of those things done after exercising. I think I may have turned the corner - there's a point you reach where the exercises you're doing are still hard, but the act of doing them gives you an energy boost - so rather than my normal, half-day wipeout from exercising (a major reason why 100 Days posts have lessened) I still felt tired but also amped up and wanting to do more. I think taking more rest breaks helped, but I just felt charged up after my exercises and managed to keep my momentum going afterwards.
Of course, I may well pay for this tomorrow. And the day after... And the day after...
But it was a good day without me having a random high-energy day.
