Wake up still feeling quite emotional and sore from exercise but was determined to go to intervals this morning, thinking the movement might loosen my legs up a bit and lessen the soreness. I was wrong!! I’ve not felt my quads burn as much as they did today but being quite stubborn when I want to be I wasn’t going to give up.
The usual ritual of food shop came after intervals and for most of it I felt completely in my own little bubble (physically present but mentally not really there), thankfully it was quiet at that time in the morning and was only really a top up shop & I had a list of what I needed.
Once home, the sofa swallowed me up for a few hours as I distracted myself with playing a silly smart phone game, which I’ve now deleted!!
Eventually, I pulled myself off the sofa to do some housework, I turned some music up loud and danced my afternoon away, not quite the meditation I was thinking of doing but worked a treat to shift my energy to a more positive one.
For tea I cooked myself a lovely duck stir-fry and made a lamb curry for tomorrow and leftovers for the week ahead. I always feel so lucky that I have the ability to cook nice food, I don’t use recipes very often, it’s just something that comes naturally to me. I know that I need to do more of this as cooking is like therapy and helps me to forget my troubles, not that I really have any at the moment which is why being emotional yesterday was a bit of a shock. Strange how things happen (always for a reason) and I’m slowly learning to just go with it and see where it takes me and that I don’t always need to understand it or delve into it, just let it be…
