I overdid it again. You would think I would learn and I need to but damn it I did too much again.
I wanted to do as much as I could with the boys while they are on spring break. Taking them out of the house also breaks up the chaos of having all five kids home all day. And I wanted to live it up, experience what I can with the kids after all I’ve been through the past year and a half.
But I also need to be smart and that is something I struggle with. I took the boys and Reese to the shore Tuesday and that wasn’t too bad as most of our time was spent in the arcades, but still a lot.
Wednesday I took the boys to the Phillies game and that proved to be a lot. We were in the sun, we walked around a lot and I was wiped out by the time the game ended.
I should have drank more water than I did and was dehydrated. I felt terrible when we got home last night and spent most of today sleeping and in bed. I pushed myself too hard.
I need to be smart but I was over ambitious a week after a reconstruction procedure. I had a wonderful time at the game with the boys but I should have walked around less at the game and rested more that morning and maybe not have done the shore the day before too.
I need to learn balance and moderation which is something I struggle with. I go all in on something and that’s not always smart.
It’s like I’m trying to make up for a lost year and we don’t need to do something every day of spring break. Thankfully I’m fine and the time sleeping and in bed helped.
I promise to learn my lesson about not overdoing it sooner than later. I need to. It’s hard for me to slow down and take it easy especially now that my treatment is over. But I’ve still been through a lot, I’m still recovering, I’m still busy with five young kids and busy working full time. And I need to remember that.
So it’s ok to not do something all the time. I do enough. And that’s enough.
