Today I had taken a day off as I had planned to meet up with Christine for a walk, but it got changed at the last moment. So I decided to turn off the alarm clock and have a lazy start. Little did I realise that, having had an early night I would sleep the clock round, so at just gone 10 was when I woke. So, a lazy breakfast and a short walk with Jiffy, and I decided to go to the gym.
Sadly when I was doing my 3 minute warm-up I noticed my heart rate had already gone up to 170, I do have a fast heart rate, but that was unusual as even the first time it only hit 148. So, I decided to slow down and just do a steady 10 mins, making sure the heart didn't go above 150. Then did a few of the exercises and a slow swim.
So, a snack lunch, and then fell asleep again for a couple of hours.
So, yes, even though I feel a lot better I have to remember the CFS is still there. It was nice to have the day off really.
The carpenters have finished, for the present, but am waiting for the decorators now, so can't find anything. But I have decided to "go with the flow" and aim for my birthday next June to hope that things will be gettting more organised by then.
As I hadn't been all that good at posting about general things, I have found a meme via Google, which I will do. Probably not every day, but will try to work steadily through it.
