Shop this look here. I’m wearing a plus size 4x in the dress! Fits beautifully.
This weekend has been crazy productive. On Friday I set aside time with my dad to set goals. 5 year, 2 year, 1 year, 6 months, etc. I broke out my planner. I planned content. I wrote down appointments that I have coming up. I spent hours getting my life “organized”.
Today I got out, walked some (did over a mile total today, which doesn’t sound like much but is probably the third or fourth time it’s happened since I got diagnosed with PsA and fibro). I enjoyed the sun, I tolerated the heat, I spent time with my best friend who has been traveling for the last couple weeks so I haven’t seen her AT ALL lately, which also is why I’ve been taking pics mostly at home and haven’t had anything interesting to write about. She’s not just my best friend but the best personal photographer and the best hype girl I’ve ever had!
I totally rebranded everything, blog, logos, color scheme, all of it. I think I’m going to stick to it this time, at least for more than a few days. Let me know what you think about it!
BUT (there’s always a but), as productive as this weekend has been, it’s been exhausting. I slept all of Saturday. I woke up Sunday with the classic PsA “sausage fingers”. My feet feel like they have knives somehow attached to them so that every time I take a step they ram right through. I’ve got that heavy, foggy feeling. My brain doesn’t want to grab onto the things I want it to. Do you ever feel like your brain has a mind of it’s own? Cause I do. That little guy never does what I want!
Honestly though, all in all, I’ll take a bit of fatigue, fog, and pain if it means I get stuff done. 6 months ago, it was constant flaring for going on half a year. I haven’t really felt like doing much of anything, I haven’t had the physical ability or the mental capacity to hardly enjoy life. I am so grateful to be able to not only do things, to walk (over!) a mile, to plan for a future, but to enjoy doing that. If someone told me at 17 that I wouldn’t only have a future, but be planning and looking forward to one, I’d tell you you were batshit. Isn’t it wonderful how things change?
