- Yesterday I posted I quote from GlutenDude where he said, “I think having an autoimmune disease means your body is in fighting mode much of the time.” A follow up comment from one of his readers to that said, “Basically having an autoimmune disease means your body will spontaneously attack itself, sometimes for no apparent reason.” As someone who doesn’t like puzzles, you would think I would hate the very idea of this. But I totally get it. In fact it explains it so well to know I’m always in fighting mode explains so much~ I feel better when I’ve done everything right and I still feel bad because it tells me it isn’t something I did. I am reassured that time will pass and I’ll feel better soon. Maybe even later that day but sometimes just in a few days. #alwayslearning
- In the land of Tess is a little off this week…my brain is foggy, my stomach is BAD…my head hurts and I just ache all over. I can already feel it passing though. Lots of water with lemon. Meanwhile I went to bed last night about midnight, closed up the house and went to bed. About 3:45 we heard crazy barking and Sean got up and headed downstairs all calm like. HE woke up to it. I DIDN’T. That’s pretty key. I wake up if the cat sneezes downstairs. I realize as he’s opening the sliding glass door that I left my poor dog outside. That’s right, I went to bed and left the dog outside. What do you suppose he thought as he saw the curtain close, the lights go out…?? What the hell? I’m still out here! I’M THAT PERSON> I suck. I’m terrible. I met Sean on the stairs and I said, “I left the dog OUT??” and he said very casually, “yeah”, as he passed me and headed back to bed. LOL. huh. okay then. The dog meanwhile was having a BLAST. He’s so freakin’ cheerful. It’s hilarious. He didn’t seem upset at all. I’m still wearin’ the guilt though. Pretty sure he still loves me. I do a lot of the puppy walks…
Can a new exercise regimen boost your brain health if you’re over 50? Possibly, suggests a new research review that found middle-age folks can improve their thinking and memory skills by adopting regular moderate-to-vigorous routines involving aerobic and resistance exercise. ~source
- I have this guy all week and this is how we started his morning…what a lovely little guy he is to just want to hang out and enjoy the morning…
On another note..I read this on someone else’s blog a while back and laughed pretty hard. It does remind me of a few people…who shall remain nameless. But it’s pretty hilarious.
- In case you’re wondering..nopeI didn’t run. I could barely function by the end of yesterday and theboy and I were super busy running errands and visiting Miss Norma and baby Margaux. I did get that cake made though. #priorities
I’m hoping for tonight because I MISS RUNNING. I ran in MT but not a lot because the road my hotel was on was like…if you run here you’ll take your life in your hands with traffic. Good luck. They were short runs and I mixed them up with yoga. I’m feeling mushy. Oh! I bet that’s contributing to my not feeling good! I better run tonight for sure. #lightbulb
