Anyway, who knows, this could be just random too. I haven't lost any weight or inches, but I did get a Wii and Wii Fit Plus last week, as well as some Dance games for my PS2, and I've tried to do a little bit of activity every day. I've been able to do more things around the house as well. I think it's important to be consistent, so I try to force myself to do at least some movement each day, unless I'm in a lot of pain or having a lot of fatigue. It is hard to tell when I'm playing a game how much is too much, so I've had some days where I suffered a lot of pain, especially in my legs and lower back. I'm trying to be careful, but it's really difficult to know when to stop, since I feel fine while I'm doing the activity.
My motivation is kind of odd. Usually I procrastinate a lot about chores, but I've been doing pretty well. It's the other things in life that I seem to not really care about, and sometimes I find myself thinking I don't know what to do next. Reading isn't doing much for me lately, I've started 3 or 4 books that haven't held my interest. Maybe it's the books I'm choosing, I don't know. I haven't felt motivated at all to knit or bead either. All my usual hobbies give me a sort of "meh" feeling right now. Not sure what to do about that.

I started on the Paleo Diet at the beginning of January, which is a grain-free diet. I have had a few chocolate bars, but only one bread product. I’ve noticed my fibro/myofascial pain in my legs has been significantly reduced, and as of today I’ve lost 5lbs and several inches on my bust, hips and waist. I have also had quite a bit more energy. All good reasons to continue! It was really hard at first to not eat the forbidden foods – which also include beans and potatoes, and I was afraid it would be really expensive, but things are going well. I’m eating a lot of fish, making chilis and stews and stirfries. There are probably a little grain products in some of the sauces I’m using – I can’t afford to replace them all with the expensive gluten-free products, but it has been enough to make a difference. I’ll be going dairy-free in another few days, replacing my coffee cream with almond milk.
