I had a good Saturday this week. It feels like everything is finally coming together. I feel more comfortable on skates. I’m struggling less. I’m more in control. All of it is a product of working through my issues & just doing the same basics over and over as much as I can. Plus putting time into working out on my own and eating better. Basically, not giving up seems to be paying off, finally. (If you’re a new reader, this is my third round of Minnows – it’s taken me almost a year to get here.)
It seems that when I experience a high like this though a low inevitably follows.
The rest of the weekend I went and had fun with my friends. Our friend Angie was in town from Texas so I fought off my after-Minnow headache all afternoon on Saturday & then went out to eat & to see Magic Mike with her, Jean & Chrissy. On Sunday we did the boating thing. I enjoyed my time with my friends but I am cursing my inability to re-apply sunscreen to myself. I can’t be trusted!
I have a terrible sunburn on just my upper torso – back, shoulders, arms, chest – and it is excruciating. I haven’t had a sunburn in years. Years! It’s made it impossible for me to do much – I’m just resting, urging it to heal. I keep telling myself I will exercise “tomorrow” but when the time comes it just hurts too much to move.
I am definitely going skating tomorrow night on schedule. This burn won’t stop me!
