Determined to walk

Determined to walk

These weeks are going by super fast. It’s Friday again already. Obviously, guess I didn’t really need to point that out. I just feel like things have been on hyper drive lately. It’s bizarre. I mean we are already through half of the year 2021. Didn’t we just celebrate the New Year? Does time speed up as you get older? I turn 50 this year, in November. I remember throwing a surprise party for my mom when she turned 50….

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…

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…

New programs at The MS Gym

New programs at The MS Gym

The MS gym rolled out a brand new site and program yesterday. Based on the new program and functional maps, I was supposed to go back to the beginning again. I just completed the standing strong program. Even though I completed the program, I would have repeated the phases because I was far from mastering the exercises. I have been with the gym for about a year now and I have done each program according to the old functional maps….

Why I believe in the MS Gym

Why I believe in the MS Gym

Ive had pretty significant changes that have been happening regarding my multiple sclerosis symptoms lately. In the grand scheme of things they might not seem significant but for me they are. My feet are pointing and flexing. They actually do it even better than this little video but I took this right after I worked out. My chin muscles are moving my feet really well. Not bad for someone with foot drop. I started phase 2 of standing strong and…

Workout, nails and good friend

Workout, nails and good friend

I just finished my workout. I’m happy to report I did the whole thing from beginning to end without a long break in between already on day 4. I’m kicking ass. I have a pretty good system to get me off the floor using my wheelchair. I might be able to use my own strength but I know that if it doesn’t work, that mistake can be costly. I really don’t want to deplete all my energy getting up. I’ve…

I’m kicking ass

I’m kicking ass

I’m doing a new program in the MS gym called standing strong. Yep has a lot to do with standing. I started phase 1 with my therapist. It had a lot of floor work as well as chair work. So I started integrating it with my previous program. I’m done with therapy but I really wanted to continue with this new program so I was determined to find something that I could make work without needing someone’s assistance to get…

Taking a few days off from workouts

Taking a few days off from workouts

This is an amazing thing, I’m taking a few days off from exercising. If you follow my blog, you know this is a big, big, thing for me. If you don’t follow my blog, take my word for it, this is a major thing for me. I don’t skip workouts. They aren’t an optional thing for me to do each day. So why am I bragging about taking a few days off? Truthfully it is a mental thing. Taking a…
