You get the idea. It's a lousy cycle to get stuck in!
Today is day two of no pain meds. My stomach feels much happier. And the ache in my head now is like random raindrops in a puddle after a long storm, an occasional drip!/twinge, tapering away to nothing.
And the sky is BLUE today, and the sun is shining.
And best of all, I started today with yoga at the little fitness studio on the square in Troy.
What? Haven't heard about it?
I think ADBC Fitness Studio is the best kept secret in our rural little corner of the world.

I participate in the morning fitness class which begins at 7:30. Three days a week we do a cardio workout. One day a week, we target particular muscle groups with a weight workout. And Thursdays we have yoga.
I enjoy all the classes - the exercise, the people, the conversation. But my very favorite class is yoga on Thursdays. It's like the chocolate cake you treat yourself to after eating your cauliflower and Brussels sprouts. (Hmm, maybe that's not such a great analogy for a fitness class!)
So, anyway, I've been fighting this nagging headache. And I haven't been writing. Blegh. I commented to Helen yesterday, "I just want to have a day when I feel great!, when I can get excited about working on the book again."
After yoga with Erica this morning, I believe that today is that day.
I love my hometown!
