New Apple Watch fitness suggestions

New Apple Watch fitness suggestions

I have a bond to pick with my Apple Watch. In the fitness settings there should be a track for disabled. That track should be worth double of that of a person who is well because each move for me is 10 times harder. My heart rate tracker I’ll never understand, I’m huffing and puffing and it’s saying like 109. I think as someone disabled I should be earning double the calories burned as well as earning double the time…

Happiness is two dogs and a comfy chair

Happiness is two dogs and a comfy chair

I’m exhausted. I just can’t start this blog any other way. I’ve been tired all week, shocking, I know. I think a major part of my fatigue has been the broken arms of my wheelchair. It was so difficult to get myself in position with that broken arm. I had my appointment yesterday. They were coming between the hours of 12-4. They showed up at 6:45. I was just so thankful they came I didn’t care what time it was….

Today is a new day

Today is a new day

Yesterday was not such a great day. I wasn’t even able to get through my workout. I was interrupted by a trip to the bathroom that unfortunately showed my fatigue. I must give myself credit here because we all know I usually push instead of stopping. Persistent isn’t always a good thing. I had physical therapy later in the day and I did some walking. However I hit fatigue fairly quickly with that too. Things went downhill from there. The…

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…

Infusion aftermath

Infusion aftermath

Yesterday was a very rough day. I’ve been sleeping good so that’s a plus. I was able to exercise because that is never an option. I would say around 12 o’clock it hit me like a ton of bricks. Maybe not even bricks, more like a Mack truck. I just was fatigued in every single muscle and joint. Even moving to go to the bathroom was so difficult. Anyone with MS knows that feeling. However this one was like times…

Fatigue, workouts, the MS gym and stuff

Fatigue, workouts, the MS gym and stuff

Good morning to all. I just sat down from my morning exercise. My body certainly feels it but my heart rate didn’t reflex the same results. I have not taken one day off since I started the MS gym program. I just changed my workouts and incorporated the gym too. The last time I didn’t close my exercise circle (the green circle) was back on June 25th. When I complete this week, I will have completed the program I signed…

Heat and humidity causing such fatigue

Heat and humidity causing such fatigue

It was hot, humid and hazy yesterday in NY. I stayed in the AC the entire day. It didn’t matter, the heat and humidity still found its way into my bones. I had a very tough day. I normally do a 45 minute workout on Sundays but only finished 30. I had to use the bathroom. That was an unsuccessful event. Bad footing caused me to slide down to the floor. Once I was there, I knew I was in…

Sunday down day

Sunday down day

Well I was very wrong about the fireworks. I thought everything was canceled but obviously that wasn’t the case. Where the fireworks in my town were canceled, other towns weren’t. I saw all the fireworks going off all across the horizon. It was extremely cool. Of course there were still fireworks set off close to my house as well. So much for them being illegal in New York. I had a great show to watch for over an hour. My…

A stomach bug and multiple sclerosis

A stomach bug and multiple sclerosis

I had a rough day yesterday. I had some kind of stomach bug. Let’s just say if I had to do a colonoscopy this morning I would be well prepared. I felt awful. I couldn’t really eat a thing. Anything I ate wouldn’t stay for long. I was dehydrated so the only thing I really could do was drink. My body was so achy. This is where having MS is always an issue. It wasn’t just the fear of an…
