My idea to keep on moving, but less than I was before the flare-up, seems to be working. I still need more sleep than usual: I actually fell asleep in my recliner this morning after getting up. I had not even eaten breakfast. So I missed church, which I don't like; but I guess I made my choice when I went out with my Sunday School class last night. However, in general, this flare seems to be improving, or maybe, I am just managing it better. I have cooking supper now -- an easy one, but not a microwave meal. Also, I am focusing on important things on which I was getting lax. I have organized my medications and supplements into their weekly container, because I am not good about taking everything if I don't stay organized. I have never liked taking meds, but I feel better if I take care of myself.
I did Day 2, which was getting dressed to the shoes. I even used lace-up shoes; and I chose old-fashioned sneakers, so I didn't have to take them off every time I sat in my recliner. The shoes with the big soles are not comfortable for me when I'm reclining, so I usually wear something I can slip on and off. I will shine my sink before I go to bed, preferably after the kitchen is cleaned.
And I have 2 post it notes to remind myself.

Hmm...kind of like my brain.
P. S. A positive note about Flylady emails is the testimonials and notes from the Flylady staff. I have been inspired by reading these, but I do not do it all the time. You have to decide what is comfortable for you, if you go down this path.
