I often have a difficult time with the fitspo hash tag.  Many of the bodies and activities shown are beyond my reach.  They do not become my health.
Yet, I like the idea of collecting visions for motivation and I am often inspired by the actions of others. There are many people that help me desire a fit lifestyle.
I will collect these visions and share them here.

Thankful Thursday

It's been a difficult week. Rough days at work, canceled plans, and migraine days. I honestly have the hardest time being thankful and okay when spending several days sitting in the dark doing almost nothing.

Yet, I still have a lot to be thankful for.

Thankful for fandoms, the one thing I can do is watch my shows and experience the joy.
Thankful for Pinterest.  I found some simple activities and distraction.
Thankful for meditation,  which is always able to get me back to where I want to be.
Thankful for my sister,  always able to hear me out.
Thankful for minimal spasms and tremors during these last few days. I was able to do some dishes, get a little sleep, and pick up.

Thankful Thursday

I am super thankful for medications.  I've had a week without my qvar. It's just been difficult to get that full breath. Today I got a refill thanks to my mom. I'm just so pleased.

I am thankful for my family taking care of me.

I am thankful for good movies and good friends.

I am thankful for walking. It is hurting really bad because I've asked my knee to do many hills, but I still really enjoy walking.

I am super thankful for being able to binge watch house of cards before spoilers got all cray.

I've spent most of January being sick.  On a scale that goes to how sick I can get, I was pretty okay. The problem is that expanding this sickness into February I am getting worse and concerned.    I had to call in sick for work yesterday.
 I haven't had insurance since August. That can be a little bit of a struggle.  Luckily thanks to Affordable Care Act, that has changes.  I'll be able to go to the doctor, replace some of my breathing medications. I'm hoping that means that I'll get better. I'd like to feel one hundred percent. Even though being one hundred percent for me isn't without pain or depression, it's a lot better than the last month and a half.
I'm very tired.  Going through my usual bouts of migraines and depression is very difficult when I'm already worn down. I am hoping to be well for work on my next scheduled shift I have a splurge worthy feel awesome day planned with some of my favorite things. (I'll stand in line. I'll fan girl.  I'll drink Uptown coffee.)
In other news, I haven't done great on my tracking (something about writing down breathing, horrible unable to exercise over and over didn't appeal to me)  Yet, my BP is back in normal range and I lost another five pounds (I can wear my super cute bra!  I don't have anyone but me to see it, but dang it, I have one cute bra on right now.)

I will be taking advantage of not feeling well and being unable to exercise by getting some more reading time in. Very excited that I'm finally ahead of the TV show on my Game of Thrones reading so all the deaths will hit me with horrible shock and probably a lot of tears.
