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…

An epiphany moment

An epiphany moment

Have you every had an epiphany? I was listening to a video message from Trevor Wicken, the owner/trainer of the MS gym, and I had one yesterday. I joined the gym about 5 months ago and have followed a workout program constantly since the day I started. I’ve written numerous blogs about the gym, I talk about the gym to everyone I know, I see a difference and I think the site should be used by EVERYONE who has multiple…

MS gym program exercise in a chair

MS gym program exercise in a chair

Can someone please explain this weather to me? One day I’m bundled in my sweatshirt putting on the heat. The next day I’m opening windows overheating at night under my blankets. No joke!!! I overheated last night in my bedroom. It made for a very long night. I had a super difficult time getting back into my bed after one of my bathroom trips that I really contemplated sleeping in my chair. I slept with my fan on once again….

Great sleep feeling good

Great sleep feeling good

The most amazing thing happened yesterday, I slept through the night. I’m not talking about until 5 AM, I’m talking about not getting up until 8:30 AM to first use the bathroom. I don’t think that has happened to me once in the last 15 years. I couldn’t believe it. I wasn’t even about to have an accident as I emerged from my bed. I was in total bladder control. It was like a miracle, a gift from the universe….

Migraines and Auras

Migraines and Auras

First let me say it is difficult to write my blog in my current position. Minx likes to snuggle in my neck. I am not complaining because they are so cute. Plus I’m not having a good day and I need a lot of love. I woke up tired and with a migraine. Not a good combination. The weather in New York is not only warm but humid. Weather, Infusion or just fatigue. I was doing my MS gym exercises…

One of those mornings

One of those mornings

I’m having one of those mornings. I started sneezing yesterday and woke up not feeling great. I decided to sleep in which was until about 8:45 when Zoey decided it was time for kisses. My friend and fellow blogger just lost one of her dogs yesterday and it was weighing heavy on my heart. RIP sweet Tiger 🌈🌈🐾🐾. I was happy to have the kisses from Zoey. I was up anyway Just as soon as my feet hit the floor…

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…

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…
