Link for The MS Gym

Link for The MS Gym

I put up a permanent link to the MS gym on my homepage. I really encourage anyone with any disability to check this out. I have no affiliation with the gym. I’m not making any money. I really have put up this link because I honestly feel this is an amazing website. I’ve been doing one of the programs now for about 8 weeks and I’ve seen a difference. that’s a big deal. I’ve had MS for 22 years. It’s…

I’m a good tired

I’m a good tired

I’m tired. I start a lot of blogs like that, don’t I? I have put myself through an entire month of working out every single day. Was it worth it? Hell yeah!!! I love challenging myself through workouts. I always did.  Of course everything is completely modified because of my MS, but it’s still incredibly hard for me. On top of that though, I was busy this week. I had my friend from the building up visiting. I had…

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…

Totally Rocked This

Totally Rocked This

Sometimes I even shock myself. Lagging all day. The only thing I ate was plain matzo with some grape jelly. I close my eyes quite a few times but never slept. yet everybody leaves my house, it’s all quiet, and I put on my workout gloves and work out. Not only did I work out but I had a great workout. That just makes me so happy. Do you have an average heart rate of 126, I mean that rocks….

Keep on moving

Keep on moving

I’m recovering from my Sh’bam workout. Have a nice sweat built up and I’m still breathing fast although I’m not out of breath. I’m always looking for new workout programs that I can do to continue to burn some calories while being mostly wheelchair bound. With this workout, from Les Mills, Zumba, and my favorites on Beachbody on demand, they allow me to workout my arms while I bop in my chair. My feet never move. I do get a…

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….

One day at a time

One day at a time

Still unfortunately feeling shitty. Once again canceling activities. The good news is I’m sleeping better, that really helps. Of course I’m a few weeks away from my infusion of Rituxan which had issues last time.Whether the issues were actually caused by the infusion or not, we still don’t know, but my concern is there to say the least. https://multipleexperiences.org/2019/09/17/blisters-on-breast/. Not to mention you always feel somewhat fatigued after you do the infusion so the whole thing has bad timing. I…

A choice to exercise

A choice to exercise

Happy Monday. My aid just told me I look tired. I’m always tired. I can sleep for 24 hours and I’d still wake up tired. I just did my little cardio workout but i was tired. It doesn’t ever matter, I’ve just learned to push through the feeling as I have always done. I bought a treadmill way back when I was still married living in my house. It was used for a total of a month tops before it…

Making my disability work in new environments

Making my disability work in new environments

Not a bad place to be to write a blog post. It is a rare morning because it is actually only my sister and myself awake at this moment. She is in one chair reading her book with a cup of tea, I’m in the other with writing with a cup of coffee. It is so beautiful up here. She lives about 2 1/2 hours away from me in upstate New York. If we continued another 45 minutes we’d be…

I swam a mile without proof

I swam a mile without proof

I finally did it. I counted and hit my goal of 35 laps which would equal 70 lengths and exactly 1 mile swam in my pool. HUGE difference than Tuesday when I barely made it 30 minutes swimming before my arms gave out. That day I couldn’t even get out of the pool. Go figure. It is just proof of of the good and bad days of multiple sclerosis. I was so excited hitting my goal, this was a big…
