One of those days...

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

I'm having one of those painful fibromyalgia/arthritis days. I've been wondering why my leg is hurting so bad. Then, duh, it hits me! Yesterday my dog and I jogged some. Jogging does that to me every single time. Plus I've been having trouble with the arthritis in my hips - it's been killing me and I'm not sleeping well at night. I took some pain meds last night at 10pm. They kicked in about 2am finally. Then by 4:53am I was hurting again. Oh well. Getting comfortable isn't easy anymore. I'm hoping once warmer weather hits things will level out. This warm/cold/warm/cold cycles are murder on the arthritis. Oh well....life goes on.
So what kind of fitness moves did you do today? Exercise is a word I don't really like - it sounds too much like work. I don't mind fitness, it sounds like of fun. Walking is fun for me especially with my dog. We took two walks. My pain meds that I took at noon just kicked in about 30 minutes ago (5:45pm) so I'm feeling much better.
It was colder today than yesterday. The air was really damp too since we had rain mixed with snow this morning and it rained last night. The wind was cold! Seems like it blows all the time straight from the Arctic Circle. At least the sun did peek out a few times today. That always makes it feel better. Love the sun shining on my face when I'm outside since it's too cold to have other bare skin feeling it too.
How are you doing on your calories? So far I'm on target but I haven't fixed dinner yet. I can't decide what I want. I'm trying to be alot better on what I've been eating. I have to get this weight off. I don't want to lose it too fast because I know me, I'd gain it back. So if I could lose a couple pounds a month I'd be happy. More would be fantastic.
Life throws us some curve balls every now and then. I've been going and visiting my brother for the last seven years and we do things together. I learned the other night he has a female friend he's known for I don't know how many years moving in with him, supposed to be in July. Well, that kind of makes me wonder if we'll be able to do things together. Oh well, as long as he's happy that's all that matters. I haven't seen her since the 70s but I talk to her on the phone alot so it's not like I don't know her at all. It just will be different. I'm hoping she'll be game for some of the adventures my brother and I take.
I hope everyone has a great Valentine's Day. I have an appointment with my therapist so it's just going to be another day. I don't mind though. Life is too much fun to worry about the small stuff!
Have fun. Stay safe. Remember emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You do need to eat something and stay on a schdule or your body will rebel. Make sure to eat every 4 hours or so. Hope the pain lets you sleep tonight. HUGS!

    Have you tried an epsom salt bath? That often helps me when I have the same kind of thing happen to me. emoticon

    I know several people with fibromyalgia/arthritis and they are all in the same boat. I have been doing well with my calories, but I haven't been able to exercise at all because of a terrible cough that I have had. I keep going into asthma attacks so I am just focusing on the diet right now.

    Hope you feel better soon. Thank goodness it's almost spring.
