Feeling pretty disappointed but trying to remain positive

Today was not a very active day for me.  My goal for each day is to achieve at least 10,000 steps.  That’s my Fit4Autism goal and I think it’s pretty reasonable. 

Unfortunately, I didn’t even get half way to that mark because I spent most of the morning asleep on the couch. 

For some reason, my allergies were totally kicking my ass on Sunday and I literally sneezed so much that I woke up this morning feeling like I had been hit by a train.  I was going to make myself go walking, in hopes that I would feel rejuvenated but Lizze wouldn’t let me. 

She said I looked like death warmed over and she told me to go back to bed. 

I’m grateful for that because in a way, it’s like not going was outside of my control and so I can assign less guilt to that.

At the same time however, at the end of the day, I’m left looking at my total steps and can’t help but feel disappointed….. That’s said, each and every step I take is a step in the right direction. 

This is why I chosen to measure my progress in steps and not miles.

Don’t be disappointed, its better to rest when you don’t feel good than to sit out due to a major illness for several days. I hope you are feeling better.

It is actually a coping mechanism (well that is what the therapist said lol). it really comes in handy like you are able to do this blog and all that other stuff and for me, I go with my friends to the doctor so they will be treated right or get the meds they need. A lot of people are not able to do that. If you have a problem with a bill I am the one to take with you lol. I think it helps us think we can control something or something like that. I didnt get that… Read more »
