What Fibromyalgia Feels Like to Me Today

Not too shabby, I must say.

Despite doing a little too much yesterday, I've had a little extra dose of energy today that I'm extremely thankful for. It's been enough to get some housework done, make a kickin' breakfast for me & hubster, do some prep work for dinner tonight, and have special time with hubster! I've been really enjoying this day. It's only 70 degrees and breezy here in Chicagoland, and I'm lovin' it (very strange for mid August)!! This Fibro body hates extreme heat or extreme cold (but still loves living here anyway) so between 40 and 80 degrees are my best days. Ahhh....

We went to church last night, and while my body was overdone by the end of it, I'm thankful I did it anyway because today's been so wonderful!

My legs are really hurting at the moment, so I'm propped up on the recliner, watching Eragon on TV (interestingly good movie with a sort of Lord of the Rings type theme, but with dragons). You know that saying that the more you move, the more you want to move...the more you sit, the more you want to sit? Well, that's true for sure! The trick with Fibro is learning your signs of when to push and not push. So while I've had a good day overall, I know that right now my body is telling me to rest a bit. How long? I'm not sure, but I'll get up again in a bit and see. I'll need to switch over the laundry shortly anyway.

Hope you're all having a blessed Lord's day!

How funny... Eragon aired here in NZ only two weeks or so ago :) Glad to hear you're feeling a little better. I had a pretty good day on Saturday, too and decided I'd better attend to some long-deferred housework, hehe.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend,
God bless

Well, if you feel like resting, so be it! I think that's a-ok, especially when there is good tv on! :)
