Another day down, two left to go. Perhaps not surprisingly, having made it this far my energy is waning. Not the actual physical energy — that is actually pretty good still especially considering I had a flare not too long ago. I’m referring to the energy to keep focused, keep moving forward, sort of to keep caring at all. That doesn’t mean I’ve dived into some sort of sugar-laden deep end, just that it’s become a bit normal and, therefore, a bit boring.
I suspect much of this stems from the sheer amount of stuff I’ve needed to get done in these last 10 days or so. My ability to carve out the time to plan, and to then follow through on that plan, has been largely squashed. And that means things have become rather predictable. You’ll see in my meals listed below that I had many of the same meals today that I’ve had on several other days. For some people, that is entirely OK. For me, I get a little blah when there isn’t more variety.
There may also be some blah because my eating schedule has been all wonky these past few days. I know that can have an affect on a lot of different body systems and can definitely impact mood and interest.
Of course, there may also be a good bit of the 21 DSD no longer being sparkly and new (I’m a bit like a bird or cat or whatever simile I’m trying to invoke here in that regard. I like shiny. It attracts my attention. It gives me something to learn and explore. I kinda’ get bored easily.
And there is certainly some “Well, I’m almost done with this. Don’t really need to think about it much anymore. More interesting to think about what comes next.”
I guess all this is to say, I have 2 days left. And I know I’ll get through them just fine. And then I’ll keep going — with something at least.
