Titan Games

Titan Games

I got the new streaming app, Peacock, yesterday and in my browsing I ended up watching Titan Games. Hosted by Dwayne Johnson, these people that are absolute beasts compete in these crazy physical games. Each time I thought I’d watch one more game and find something else. The next thing I know I’m watching one more etc. My daughter comes home from work and is like what are you watching? Yet she started watching with me until she went out.…

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….

Working out with MS

Working out with MS

Overheated and under slept. Not a good combo to wake up with. I shut my AC off last night because I was cold. Of course it was ridiculously humid when I got out of bed. I had hours to turn it back on. I was up between the hours of 4-6AM and the time I feel back to sleep between 6-8 weren’t restful. Needless to say I woke up behind the MS eight ball already dragging my feet and having…

Tony Horton P90X, here I come

Tony Horton P90X, here I come

It’s been a while but I’m coming back to my P90X workouts from Tony Horton at Beachbody. https://www.beachbody.com. I have been a fan of Beachbody and their trainers for a long time but my favorite was always the P90X routine. I had these great bowflex adjustable weights These weights were great you could dial them from 5 to 52 pounds each. This was wonderful when I could lift a 20lb press or do squats with 30lbs in each hand, not…

My neurologist check up 9/2017

My neurologist check up 9/2017

Technically I’ve had Multiple Sclerosis for 20 years at this point. I had my first case of optic neuritis in the summer of 1997 but I wasn’t officially diagnosed until February 1998. Doesn’t really matter at this stage of the game but it is why, like I said in my post yesterday, I don’t prepare for my neurologist appointments. Yesterday I saw my neurologist that diagnosed me in 1998. I remember back in the beginning at my check ups I’d…

Me and multiple sclerosis continued

Me and multiple sclerosis continued

I’m sitting here with six exercises left of my P90X routine. Fuming actually that I haven’t been able to continue to finish the last six exercises.  This is certainly a first!!!!! I really just want to say go to hell MS.  This is such a sucky disease of times. It’s not bad enough that it takes a lot to muster the energy to exercise for any given person but an MS person its more of a push. I’m sitting here…

Mid-section fat distribution

Mid-section fat distribution

If you follow my blog, you may have picked up by now that I’m scale obsessed. For anyone who just happened to stumble upon my blog, I’m scale obsessed. I keep a close enough eye on things to know I haven’t gained any significant weight. I bounce around a five pound mark but that’s about it. I’m not thin, by any means, but I’ve maintained my current weight and size for years. I’ve held my hourglass figure my whole life,…

The weight I am

The weight I am

I battled with my weight my entire life. I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1998. My neurologist’s letter to my primary care physician said, Jamie is a heavy set patient in her mid twenties, blah blah blah. I remember the physical therapy place I first went to had this computer bike. One time something wasn’t working right and the therapist said to another therapist that it happens only when a heavier person goes on. When I was in 6th…

The annoying but harmless guy in physical therapy

The annoying but harmless guy in physical therapy

I’ve been going to physical therapy since November 2016. The way my insurance works is I get 20 calendar visits per year.  I started in 2016 so it just worked out that I was able to do many months in a row. My physical therapy actually runs an amazing program that after this  physical therapy set up, I could pay a monthly fee and use everything in the gym, only giving up with the physical therapist actually have to do, which…
