I have a headache. It’s actually the same headache that I’ve been trying to fight off for the past few days. I’m not sure what’s causing the headaches but I’d like them to go away now. It puts a serious damper on any work or exercise that I was planning on doing. I become pretty useless when I get a headache/migraine and am usually only able to do one thing… sleep.
Despite being tired and headachy, I did manage to do some painting yesterday. I did three new pieces in watercolour. Each one is quite a bit different from the other. One is a very abstract blending of colours, another is a very light painting of the land, and the last one is a painting of poppies that was done as an exercise from one of my books. I also painted a donkey a couple of days ago. I’m not sure if I really like the way any of them turned out but I’m glad I painted them. Now I just need frames for the ones I want to put up on the wall.
In other news, I absolutely love having high speed back. I no longer have to worry about whether I left the internet connected and am using up the limited amount of hours or not. I no longer have to wait 5 minutes for a page to load. I can download!
Today I’m going to try the scheduling of larger activities that need to get done. I don’t know how well it’s going to work but with any luck it might help to keep me focused.
That same evening…
I managed to use up more than half of my extra weekly food points today. I guess that’s what happens when you decide to have KFC for dinner. In fact, I’ve used up almost all of them which means I have to either stay right on target for the rest of the week or get in a whole lot of exercise. I’d LIKE to start exercising more but there always seems to be a “but”. I’m having trouble motivating myself to actually do it. I don’t know what it is that’s keeping me from doing it other than feeling lazy and listless a lot of the time. Of course they say that exercise is exactly what you need if you’re feeling like that. The trick is getting my butt out the door.
