It's the end of the month, the effect from the Tysabri infusion (for MS) have mostly worn off, and I am stuck with extreme fatigue and muscle weakness. And therefore not able to exercise, more than the walk to the doctor's office and back to pick up a prescription this morning. (No way could I justify taking the bus for that, a 12-minute walk each way, though it felt like walking up a steep hill.)
I am still surprised that I am actually using the workout videos, and have found more online. But I feel so good after doing a workout, that it keeps me coming back for more. And I can normally really tell the difference, just in how my legs feel when I am walking as well as some increased stamina and strength.
I am trying to accept not being able to do all I want gracefully, but it gets harder each day. Two days is fine, but by now, the fourth day, I am very impatient and would be fighting it if I had the energy.
Trying to not turn it on myself, make it my fault. I'm not being lazy, I actually am unable to exercise today. Why doesn't it feel any better? (Maybe I'm just missing the feel-good from a hard workout.)
And maybe I'll be better tomorrow. There is always a new day ahead.
