Over doing it...

Even after 29 years, I still haven't mastered the art of moderation! On days that I have energy and feel good, I want to get as much done as possible then the next day I am all worn out!!! Today I was going to give one of my five dogs a bath and instead ended up doing all of them!!! I will pay for it tomorrow I am sure!

Do you have any strategies for days when you feel good so that you don't over extend yourself? IF so, please share what they are!

Oh, so true! I try to remind myself "remember what happened the last time?". Even though I may pay for it for several days after overdoing it, I have the mental boost that I got a lot done, and I'm not "giving in" or surrendering to my disease.
Just like so many things (eating or drinking too much), I try to repeat the mantra "everything in moderation, keep everything in balance".
