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…

Having issues with my new wheelchair

Having issues with my new wheelchair

There are so many good things about this wheelchair but unfortunately there are a few bad things. I have been consistently in the new wheelchair now for a couple of weeks. I waited to use it for a couple of weeks after I got it. Between breaking the mirror and Minx being so tiny, I couldn’t do learning a new wheelchair and avoiding him at the same time.New and old. In using the chair I realized some major issues. The…

Loving the MS Gym

Loving the MS Gym

Good morning. It is a Grey Saturday morning here. Actually it’s a white Saturday morning.  If you look closely you can see the water. It’s 8:00 am and I’ve already worked out. I can’t say enough good things about the MS gym. http://www.themsgym.com/. I just completed week 2 and I already have seen a slight improvement. no one else would notice this improvement, it is extremely minute. This is just one of the things that I noticed from doing…

Working out a new way

Working out a new way

So Minx, my adorable puppy, has definitely affected my sleep. Yet my body has been more run down from the changes I made to my workouts. I have been doing various workouts for a minimum of 5 days a week for a long time. As my disability worsened, my workouts were modified but never stopped. I’ve modified to a chair quite successfully. I can get my heart rate up over 130 on some chair workouts. All good but muscle burns…

Summer heat hibernation and my own multiple sclerosis realization

Summer heat hibernation and my own multiple sclerosis realization

The quarantine is starting to lift yet this is the weather I start my hibernation. It’s starting to warm up and that means trouble for me and multiple sclerosis. Not just me, many of us. Between 60% and 80% of people with MS find that heat can cause their symptoms to worsen. This might involve a build up of fatigue, blurred vision, loss of balance or a worsening of cognitive symptoms such as concentration or memory. https://www.mstrust.org.uk/a-z/temperaturesensitivity I missed all my good months to…

Bladder issues

Bladder issues

I’m not sure what exactly is going on with my bladder these days. I know I have issues, had them for years, but they’ve seemed somewhat worse over the last few weeks. I am not sure if I don’t have some kind of bladder infection. The problem is that is varies day to day, something bladder infection tend not to do. However between my water pills and Toviaz, who knows. Urinary tract infections don’t always cause signs and symptoms, but…

My muscles are getting weaker

My muscles are getting weaker

I have to be honest, my legs are super tired by the end of the night. I’ve been having some real issues getting myself into bed. Luckily my daughter has been around to assist and readjust my legs. My original thoughts were why? I’m resting most of the day after I exercise. Then it occurred to me, I’m moving even less now than the little I was moving before. This is bad. The more I’m in hibernation, the weaker I’m…

Working out with MS disability and weakness

Working out with MS disability and weakness

Good morning. I just finished my LesMills workout. I’ve been doing Sh’bam on there which is cardio dancing stuff. It’s fun but I wish I could be doing some of their other workouts like Grit or Pump but my body’s weakness doesn’t allow for that anymore. I have to revise all workouts I do to a chair. Then I have a problem holding weights. I’ve purchased hand weights that I wear like gloves and use them for all my workouts….

I am back with a home health agency

I am back with a home health agency

Today is the first day I woke up not feeling tired. It was such a wonderful feeling. I haven’t had that in so long. I can’t say how the rest of my day will go but for all my bitching lately it was nice to start off my blog with some good news. I still canceled playing mahjong today. Unfortunately I knew that I probably wouldn’t have the stamina to last too long. However I still worked out. I even…

Smiling through exhaustion

Smiling through exhaustion

Back to feeling rundown again. Spent yesterday morning in bed with a migraine. Migraine is gone but I’m still exhausted. I went into bed before 9pm yesterday and slept straight through until 4:30am. That is a record. I went back to sleep and woke up at 8:44. I had to take my car in first thing this morning otherwise I might have spent another morning in bed. This is a rough feeling as anyone with multiple sclerosis can tell you….
