A guilt pleasure

A guilty pleasure

My Counselor told me to start doing for myself – that I need to be healthy and happy if I am going to be “There” for anyone. So, with that being said – I slowly began to follow some of the important things – going to bed on time (even if everything is not done), eating (making food that I can have or should have), going to swim every day that is possible (despite the time away from home – or household chores), AND soaking up some artificial light at the tanning bed (costly but so relaxing) or taking a long hot bubble bath.
These are supposed to be my “guilty pleasures”. I supposed they are according to the dictionary. ”A guilty pleasure is something one enjoys and considers pleasurable despite feeling guilt for enjoying it.”
But are they a guilty pleasure when you are doing them so that you can continue to enjoy life to the most that your body will allow. Are they a guilty pleasure or more of a task that must be done – no matter how tired, stiff or sore you are on that given day?
Maybe, for me – my guilty pleasure needs to be redefined. The few things that come to mind just seem like too much work or too tiring just thinking of them. I need to find something that is for me to enjoy but not because if I don’t I may not walk easily the next day. My to do list for me now will say – Enjoy something that you wanted to do just because…

A glimmer of hope.

While at a home & garden show for work I met a Chiropractor giving free massages…my Chiropractor said all she could do for me was adjust me once in awhile. This one speciaizes in fibromyalgia care. He offers massages, nutrition, and therapy for Fibro patients. I have an appt. scheduled in 2 weeks for my consultation. He did a “free” chair massage – and was able to tell me where my trigger points were located. I am so hoping that he can help me keep moving. He was impressed with what I have done in the area of research and excercise already.
I started having problems with light sensitivity again yesterday and all day today. So – I did my Corey Hart impression both days.
I attended my first yoga session today – I am not sure what I am supposed to “get out” of the yoga session – but I am not sure what I did get out of it. I was a bit more relaxed at the end of the class, but my personality is not laying still – stretches – and not moving. I am a go – go – go person. I hope that I can get my body working so that I can do biking this summer.
