Forgive me, readers, for I have sinned.
I am not so concerned with what I have or have not done in the last couple of weeks. I am more concerned with my inability to take responsibility. I don’t need to confess to you, or to the other posters on the 3FC boards; I do need to be honest with and accountable to myself.
These last couple weeks have been a struggle with my health, my nutrition, my exercise, my schoolwork.
I feel so much better on this medication; I am myself again, for the first time in many months. I think that I had forgotten, though, that myself pre-fatigue was a slacker. That was not the fault of my health – it was MY fault, my actions, my decisions. It is too easy, when I feel fatigued, to blame my slacking on the fatigue. Of course, the fatigue makes it difficult to do the things I want and need to do, but when I do feel well, I need to maximise that.
I’ve been prescribed another month of the prescription, and we’ll re-evaluate from there.
I want to make the most of this next month. It’s the last month of my degree, for one thing. I want to enjoy it and make it the best I can. It’s a month that, if I really commit, I can achieve the things I want to achieve, mentally, physically, socially, professionally and academically.
So – no more quote of the week! I got slack in updating it. From now until the end of the year, I’ll be posting a goal for the week. I encourage you all to join me, and I’ll try to do a wrap-up post for each goal, each week.
And, to put a little incentive into it, if I achieve each of my goals between now and the end of November, I will buy myself a pair of Lululemon “Still” pants! That’s only SIX weeks! Six little goals – now THAT is achievable!
