Boundaries??

Last Wednesdays swim was fun!  However after I got home from the swim and had
my lunch I thought I would take a quick nap. 
That was 13:30 and I woke up a startling 3 hours later.  The following day I was shattered, but in insisting
my health was improving I carried on with quite a chunky agenda.  I had a work based catch up in the morning, a
visit to the Needle Queen in the afternoon (in Belfast) and an evening out for dinner
with some good friends.  Friday I was
well drained and with high levels of nausea… 
Now I’m left with the dilemma of what to blame for the exhaustion and
regression.  Wednesdays swim, Thursdays busyness,
a return to a questionable diet OR the lack in general of observing boundaries.
I use the word observe because setting personal boundaries
has never been a problem, observing them on the other hand has been.  When it comes to my personal life I allow
myself to tramp over and through all sorts of pre-set boundaries. From my
finances to my diet, from exercise to my downtime, boundaries have always been
paper thin. In some ways I wonder in the past did I cross a central boundary
and spent so much energy in my professional life that I left myself robbed of focus
for my personal life.
 This is definitely going to be the theme for this
week.  Where are my boundaries and how do
I plan to ensure that they are observed? 
Slowly my return to health is becoming a reality and I want to have this
well thought through so I never have to return to this place. 

Interestingly one of the challenges the Needle Queen set
me last week was to draw a pie chart of how I want to invest my time.  Conveniently up to now I had forgotten about
that, excuse me whilst I go do some homework…
Ohh one quick question… I am thinking of taking up Pilates (I have never done this before), anyone any recommendations of where to go?
