I made a critically important discovery at the gym this evening, and I feel sort of dumb for not already knowing it: the family pool is about 6 degrees warmer than the lap pool. This is huge for me, since the chronic fatigue makes me more sensitive to cold than ever. The good news is that I jumped right in and swam a quarter mile before dipping in the hot tub.
Yes, dear readers, the swimming component of my routine is back, and it's all to the good. I'm only doing a quarter mile for now, trying to focus on re-establishing the habit before worrying about distance or time.
It's nice to be back, especially as the winter hours are upon us.
It's also really nice to have something g worthwhile to report on the fitness front. I feel as though I have been treading water and losing ground incrementally anyway all year.
Sleep Chronic Fatigue makes sleep elusive and fitful. Routine helps, so with that I'm hoping to #Fall back into a routine:
Sauna or hot bath
Writinga few pages each day, hopefully finding something that can get worked on well enough to turn in for the submission due on November 1.
Knitting It seems to soothe me. Knitting helps me feel as though I'm not a useless slug even when I can barely do anything physically. It's a bonus that Vivian has started knitting with me and we are enjoying planning a blanket for her bed. She's the absolute best, and I am completely blessed to have her in my life.
Therapybecause a week without it would be tragic.
Legal Notes and Log UpdatesThe court date isn't until mid-December, but the weirdness has definitely ramped up and there are lots of little things to take care of and note along the way.
EditingThe classmates' work will need to have three readings between Nov 1 and Nov 8, with written critiques due Nov. 8.

This challenge runs from Oct. 22 (I'm usually a week early since I don't believe that there is any such thing as a break) until Nov. 18, 2017
