They're called rheumatoid nodules - little pockets of fluid and schmutz about the size of a quarter - that form around the joints. They feel like trying to walk on tennis balls.
This is the best way I can describe the physical challenges I have to face on a daily basis. I don't mean this in a 'poor me' kind of way. I mean it more in a 'crap - they're back - how do I work out?' kind of way. When it is unbelievably painful to walk - how do you jump and kick and twist in taebo or PX90? I did the chest and back last time, but I need to do something different.
That's my challenge for the day. To find a way to get in a good workout without causing pain. And I don't mean the usual stiffness associated with a fat girl exercising. I mean the kind that sets you back in bed for several days.
Motivation? I think I have a lot. I've lost 3 pounds last week and stuck with my meal plans. I can do this. I can. I just have to figure out how....
