What a week

Actually, it's been a couple of weeks. The weekends have been crazy busy. Crazy. Busy. For the last couple of weekends, my errands have run back to back. Yesterday, for example, I had a 9:30 - 10:30 training class with Maverick. Then an 11:30 painting date with my friends that ran until 3 pm. Then we hung out at a friends house for a couple of hours and then boom, the day was gone. My weekends have been like that for a couple of weeks now. It's fun, I'm having a good time, but I need downtime. I've been busy all weekend and then boom, back to school on Monday. Hubby can do that, no problem, I cannot. And my friend doesn't work, so she's decompressing all week and on the weekend wants to go out and do things. Ugh!!!  We have plans for today and I don't want to do them. But Hubby does and friends do. Ugh, what to do???

Anyway, it's been a week. There was a huge recall of romaine lettuce because it was tainted with e. Coli. On Wednesday I got stomach/lower abdomen pains like I've never gotten in my life. I felt like I was spiking a fever on and off also. I've never felt like that in my life. The pain felt like it was moving down my intestines, but it kind of settled on the right side, so naturally, I though appendix!!!! Yesterday, in talking to everyone, a few people had it and we realized that we must have gotten some of the tainted lettuce at a party last weekend. That was miserable. I never want to experience that again. Also, I think lots of people get diarrhea with e. Coli, but I got constipation. Big time. Like I didn't go from Tuesday until last night. I was dying. But all is well this morning and I'm glad.

Needless to say, with all that going on, I didn't get my walking in this weekend. But that's okay, I was sicker than I knew.

Also last week, I did not do my planner. At. All. I guess being sick, I let things slide last week. So it's time to step it up again. I did not meditate at all this week, so it's back to that again. I also need to work on Maverick a little every day. Need to have him rock solid by Saturday training.

I wonder how I can balance my energy levels. I have been doing lots of things on the weekends recently. Going out, doctors appointments, gatherings with friends, etc. I reached a point today where I just could not do it anymore. I have laid around most of the day and done nothing. That may be a hangover from the sickness or maybe I need to do nothing once in a while. Even when we have people over, I feel like I'm 'on' for as long as they are here.  I need downtime but I need to find a balance between activity and rest. I want to do a lot of things, but I need downtime. Where do I find the balance? Where do I find the happy medium that allows me to do all the things I want and still get my rest? I don't know how to do that and I need to learn. Quick.
