Back in March I wrote about how I was not going to let this damn disease (RA) get the best of me. I was going to fight harder. I'm still fighting.
I have worked with my trainer every week since mid-March. It's taken some time to get beyond just the two days of weight training, and add extra activity, but I'm getting there.
It's summer, and as a teacher I have the luxury of time off. I got our vacation out of the way as soon as possible, and have been focusing on myself. I'm writing, reading, and working out more and more every day.
Today I started the couch-to-5K plan and I cannot believe I actually ran. I RAN!!! I am also tracking my food on the "Lose it!" app.
There's a part of me that feels like I have to get in as much activity as possible because who knows how long this "remission" will last. So, every day, the first thing I do is throw on exercise clothes and shoes. Before I get in the pool, run errands, rest in my recliner (I force myself to rest some every day, usually in the evening) I have to get those clothes sweaty. And I do.
I'll write about out little vacation later in the week.
