My body is telling me there is such a thing as too much chocolate. That when I was in high school, I shouldn't have shoved my size 7 feet into size 6 shoes because that's the size all my friends wore. That when my mother kept telling me not to slouch, I should have listened...I might have grown to be 5'6" instead of 5'1". And it is telling me a vacuum cleaner is a very bad nasty piece of equipment and should be thrown in a sink hole of quick sand.
During the winter my body tells me the same thing- lay on the couch, watch cable tv and eat all carbs!
But.... that does not work for me either. I need to move. I started walking at the mall to keep my muscle strength up. And if I can't get to the mall I make sure I am moving around the house or I will run into the grocery store and pick up a couple things. I do light stretching exercises too. The goofiest thing since I got fibro is that my body does tell me what I need to do. After the first 3 months of having it (was very sick), it was like it was "craving" to walk. It never talked to me before fibro?!!
I'm just looking forward to spring and fresh air, sunshine and being a little more active. It can't come fast enough!
