New addition to my workout

New addition to my workout

Is the summer over yet? I’ve already had enough of the heat and more importantly the humidity. I am thankful for my hair straightening giving me one less thing to worry about. I was never a fan of the summer even before my diagnosis. I was never one to cherish the sun. I have very fair skin so I burn easily and then I turn right back to my white complexion. I’m the perfect comparison for anyone who wants to…

Weight loss frustration

Weight loss frustration

I’m frustrated today. I’ve joined an online program for weight loss. I’ve at my 3 month mark and I’ve gained 5lbs. Yes GAINED. I am the most health-conscious fat person I know. I’ve stopped eating vegan some time ago when I switch my home meal delivery service. I use cook unity now https://www.cookunity.com/landing-referral?referral_code=jams440863. I get to pick from over 100 different meals each week and I love the food. Forever conscious of the food I eat they also offer a…

My view on exercise

My view on exercise

I was watching a show about the Amish in Pennsylvania. I think what shocked me the most was some of the county’s names. I knew of Intercourse, PA but was amazed there is a place called Blue Ball, PA. It starts to make something innocent like Mount Joy, PA to maybe be not so innocent. I mean who came up with these names??? Sure you go from Blue Ball, PA and suddenly you enter Mount Joy. Happily moving to Intercourse,PA…

AM vs PM

AM vs PM

My phone rings at a little after 6am this morning. I pick it up thinking that it was possibly my contractor. It was my front gate. I had a delivery from Amazon. I set up a food delivery for today and took the only available window of time 5-7. I didn’t even realize that it was for the AM. Duh!!!!Now I had to get up to bring in the packages. Of course my puppies were up now too. I was…

Multiple sclerosis isn’t just my diagnosis

Multiple sclerosis isn’t just my diagnosis

I’m thankfully doing better today because I slept. Never under estimate the power of a good nights sleep. I was able to exercise a little this morning. I purposely decided to keep it simple and just do my MS gym exercises. There was an entire revamping of the MS gym and I actually started the from the very beginning again. That means the exercises aren’t as intense. I was pairing them with chair cardio everyday but knew that wouldn’t be…

Mid week review

Mid week review

Well the major snowstorm that is going to pound the northeast is going to leave significantly less on part of Long Island. I’m located in that part. We should only see 3-5 inches by the end. We will get the sleet mixed with rain making for a more snowy mess than a beautiful snowy blanket. Oh well. I still haven’t had my aide so it’s been just me holding my own. I’m doing ok. I of course haven’t been able…

Goal accomplished

Goal accomplished

I accomplished the really hard workout that took me down last week. Persistent isn’t always a good thing. Not only did I accomplish it, I doubled up exercises that weren’t squats. I kicked butt. This doesn’t even include the warmup that I forgot to start my Apple Watch. I would have had an additional 15 minutes but my heart rate average would have been lower. Not a bad workout with resistance bands. For my age and disability that is a…

I needed that

I needed that

I didn’t wake up in such a cheery mood today. Very unlike me too. Even when the first thing I see when my eyes open would be the faces of my babies, I still wasn’t really happy. I had a long day yesterday and I canceled my kidney sonogram. I just couldn’t deal with drinking 64 ounces of water before a test that I know I could never hold in. I mean I went to the doctor for incontinence. How…

Exercising is not optional

Exercising is not optional

I truly want to write happy, uplifting blogs but I haven’t been able to do that lately. For every good day I’ve been having a few rough days following. It seems like I’ve been having more rough days than good days. Each time I think I’m through the worst of it, like my infusion, something seems to happen. If it is a tough night sleeping or a great night sleeping, I’m waking up tired. Doesn’t seem to matter. Today I…

One of those mornings

One of those mornings

I’m having one of those mornings. I started sneezing yesterday and woke up not feeling great. I decided to sleep in which was until about 8:45 when Zoey decided it was time for kisses. My friend and fellow blogger just lost one of her dogs yesterday and it was weighing heavy on my heart. RIP sweet Tiger 🌈🌈🐾🐾. I was happy to have the kisses from Zoey. I was up anyway Just as soon as my feet hit the floor…
