Joining weight watchers again

Joining weight watchers again

I made a decision yesterday to join weight watchers again. I’m up about 10 lbs from goal weight which isn’t terrible but that weight has been creeping up slowly since I stopped working out in June. Yes, vegans can gain weight. I’m just eating a lot of vegan crap and I can’t seem to get it under control on my own. I need the accountability of facing a scale each week. Unfortunately, sometimes when I’m on my own and I’m in…

What’s going on in a day in the life with multiple sclerosis

What’s going on in a day in the life with multiple sclerosis

My Ocrevus infusion is going to be on Monday August 14 now. Not the worst thing. My infusion for Rituxan was scheduled originally for July 17th so the change to the new drug set us back roughly a month. My neurologist told me that even though Rituxan is given on a six month schedule, the drug could last up to 9 months effectively. I feel fine and now I only have 5 days to receive an infusion so I am…

Tendonitis go away

Tendonitis go away

I worked out yesterday for the first time in a month. I was trying to really give my shoulder the time to heal, as recommended by my orthopedic doctor and my physical therapist. I’ve been suffering for almost a year now with tendonitis. My last appointment with the doctor was in early June and I received another cortisone shot. The shots definitely help but can only be given once every 3-4 months and even then is not a great solution….

NYS Medical marijuana card

NYS Medical marijuana card

Got to love New York State. We legalized medical marijuana but big brother is watching you. My doctor gave me the certification to apply for a card. I had to submit my information to the department of health, with the certification and my drivers license. After my application is reviewed, my card will be mailed to me. I don’t even know where to get the “stuff”. I think they have a dispensary somewhere about 20+ miles from me but I’m…

Doctors, doctors and more doctors

Doctors, doctors and more doctors

I’ll start this with the doctor for my shoulder tendonitis. I went to see him yesterday. Still flying high from my amazing weekend at my spirit junkie master class, I think I even put the doctor in a good mood.  Being that my case is slightly different from other tendonitis cases, I can’t ever rest the arm because I use it with the walker, he was able to give me a Cortizone shot early. He was actually singing as he injected…

Weekly weigh-in, vegan check-in, infomercial purchase

Weekly weigh-in, vegan check-in, infomercial purchase

I came home from physical therapy, completely spent. I put on the television and there was an infomercial on for the Veggie Bullet. Within 13 seconds I was online checking it out.  I use a Cuisinart food processor that I received as an engagement gift. Let’s just say that if I was still married, yesterday, May 25, would’ve been my 21st Anniversary.  So the Cuisinart was an engagement gift which was easily received a year before that. It mostly works fine…

U2 Every Breaking Wave-Acoustic

U2 Every Breaking Wave-Acoustic

Today my arm was hurting so much I couldn’t work out. Couldn’t even do Zumba in a chair because my arm couldn’t do the moves. I am extremely frustrated and just deflated. 8 years I’ve woke up and workout. I’m now on 4 days I haven’t with Sunday being my normal day off. Doesn’t even make a difference. My MS was still awful without working out anyway. My arm, this stupid tendonitis or tendinitis (not sure on spelling) affects everything. I can’t…
