Just had my nutrition appointment to go over my mitochondrial function tests and see where to go from here.
The tests show that, since last year, my cells are not dying off quicker than they’re being replaced so I have more cells doing work (yay!) but they’re still not working particularly well (boo!).
What this means is that I have the energy to do a little more but I need to be careful about how I use that energy because it gets used up very quickly. My aim now is to be more efficient with my energy usage - to use my energy on doing things, physical things rather than mental things. This probably means more active stuff and less gaming, which is probably a good thing but…my babies!
It’s been suggested that I aim to ‘get out’ maybe 3 times a week and I would like to find something or somewhere to go so that my outings are more than just ‘getting out’. If I drank coffee it would be nice to go to a coffee shop and sit for a while, for example (I get that coffee shops sell more than coffee but I only really drink water and that has my electrolytes in so yeah).
I’m wanting to get back into having my epsom salt baths, yoga and walking but not on the same day. I don’t want to get into any sort of routine as routines can cause stress, which needs to be avoided, but choosing whether to do yoga or walking would be nice with an epsom salt bath in the evening before bed.
So all in all, exciting news and it’s nice that I’ve got a little more energy, I just need to use it wisely.
