Whoops #1) Announcing a new blog and twitter account - then not touching them for two whole weeks.
Whoops #2) Not being strict about the rest schedule at weekends.
Whoops #3) Travelling to and from Bradford for a full day's conference/training. It was utterly brilliant and fascinating, but exhausting.
Whoops #4) Following up the training day with a day's rest, a day's cleaning, then three days of my parents' company in my own home. (NB I love my parents dearly, and enjoy their company. It was a wonderful few days, but I overdid things anyway.)
If nothing else, the last week and a half has really brought home the importance of being consistent with the rest and energy regime. Consistency is not my forte, but I will have to learn it, and make it so, if I really want to improve long term, or I can see that I will simply feel better for a while, then relapse... feel better for a while, then relapse.
The biggest concern I have with this are the big trade shows I attend for work. I'm definitely scheduled in for one large one and one smaller next year, with applications in for two more 'biggies'. Will I be well enough to account for such exceptional events, or am I just shooting myself in the foot?
