Help I've fallen and Can't get Up !!!

Tuesday, November 09, 2010



My workout yesterday was extra challenging. My energy has been going up and down as my body continues to battle the flare and heal. A nap was required so I could muster up the energy to workout. LOL. A nap needed before I workout??? Doesn't seem to make sense, but it worked.

I was extra weak yesterday making the workout harder. My husband still has to help me out of the chair. I struggle to lift a dinner plate full of food, even empty. I was able to lift my leg into the car by myself !!! A major accomplishment for me. The neuropathy is driving me crazy with fusteration, keeping me awake tonight when I desperately need sleep.

I did Powerfit by Stephanie Hucklebee Cardio DVD. Thank goodness there wasn't any floor work as I wouldn't of been able to get up without help. No I didn't fall, but any of you who have loved ones at home take a walkie talkie with you or cell phone if you workout in a room by yourself in case you can't get up. Since my husband came up with this plan he has always hears me when I need his help.

I managed to get 10,000 steps in by sparking off and on. My legs felt like lead, very heavy today and my balance was worse. When I worked out, I used the barre my husband mounted for balance. Thanks Honey !!!

I will update my totals later in the morning when I have access to my gowear fit watch. Its in the bedroom with my sleeping husband.

    You're doing great. And naps -- what's wrong with that? One of the women from the Biggest Loser does that sometimes she says (this is Ali, the first female BL). Rest is important too!

    As always, reading how much you accomplish by pushing through and finding solutions to your situation is an inspiration to me. I've been down because of my limitations with my ankle, but then I remember all that you do with your MS, and it makes me think of ways to get around my own limitations. Thanks again for sharing your journey. It means so much to me. emoticon emoticon

    This might sound crazy, but I have a baby monitor that I've used in the room where I exercise. I bought it when my parents were ill, and never got rid of it. And if I or my roommate are sick, we move it into the "sick room". But, I make sure that I have a phone nearby if I'm exercising when I'm at home alone.

    Once again, you've shown how much can be accomplished if you don't think of excuses, but work out ways to deal with problems. You are doing an incredible job.

Your husband sounds like a real gem, too.

    I've learned the hard way to always carry my cell phone...although lately I've slacked off a bit from that (getting too cocky I think) With the hip dislocation and sudden paralysis being possibilties for me at any time, I really think I needed your reminder....thanks!
