I woke up this morning and meditated. I concentrated on putting the pain in my stomach someplace deep inside where it wouldn't bother me anymore. I have done that with my back pain at times so I can cope with it. Of course now since I have been exercising so much it isn't bothering me as much. Much better then drugs. I visualized the painful area getting smaller and smaller until it was smaller then a pea. That size pain I can deal with. Followed it up with some mindful breathing and am feeling much more relaxed. My bedroom is a very comforting room for me to meditate in. The colors are calming and I like all the things in there. They please my eye. The dresser I dragged home from an auction in terrible shape. I stripped it and bleached it and stained it and it is beautiful now. The picture my brother painted for me. The beautiful tapestry I bought at an auction by a talented local artist after 9-11. All the proceed were for the victims family's and I love it. The colors aren't quite true in the pictures, the room is softer.
I had a slim fast for breakfast, a low fat wrap for lunch with a red pear. We are going for a bike ride as my muscles are screaming for it. I need to exercise and we have only a few days left to ride the bikes. I am bringing, besides the water, some figs to much on during the ride. Gives me energy and will be my midday snack.
