I hurt

Friday, September 20, 2013



An incoming storm is playing havoc on my body. Weather changes causes pain. The pain is severe today. It's high enough I have been in tears. It's making my whole spine ache horribly. My muscles are spamming even around my stomach. It runs up into my head. Light makes it worse. My ear pressure is increasing. The out of control pain sent my stomach heaving with nausea. All signs a major change in the weather is coming.









So far Excedrin is helping a bit along with essential oils and DH's back rub. Hopefully prayers and the above will keep everything in check.









My kitty has been giving me extra TLC today too.







Walking updates:


9-15-13. 13,167 steps. I felt super good that day, on top of the world. My legs worked fabulously. I cooked, cleaned, made juice, walked. . .







9-16-13. 6,833 steps. I should of not of walked today and rested from yesterdays walk. My legs were a bit tired. DH came home. I was telling him of all my progress that I made strength wise. The walk we did was half downhill and half uphill. Even though it wasn't real long it exhausted me. I realized afterwards my pace was much faster and the hill was longer, more of a drop than I was used to. My body did not appreciate my enthusiasm.









9-17-13. 3,783 steps. I had to rest today. My legs were wobbly, very tired and weak feeling. My balance was off. I had to nap extra. I needed help today getting up out of bed and out of the chair, walking. I over did the walking on the last two days and did not listen to my body. Lesson learned.

9-18-13. 7,071 steps. My body still felt tired. I did not walk until evening as my body said NO. The even walk was shorter than usual due to continued fatigue and muscle weakness.







9-19-13. 7,316 steps. Evening walk due to energy levels still recovering. Needed help today as my muscles are still recovering from overdoing it. In the evening my muscles felt as if they were finally starting to recover from the super long walk. My weight loss has remained stable. I remain 2 pounds down since starting walking.









Today I don't know if I will be able to walk. My pain levels are high. The winds are starting to blow as the storm rolls in. Walking in wind is super hard for me balance and strength wise. It totally wipes me out.









While the storm is not expected to be a major storm, my body feels the effects of it. It's no fun. It's not workout related pain, but weather related. When the storm blows I will feel better again.

    I love all of your pictures. So cute. I have to say, you're putting me to shame. My legs work just fine and you're out walking me. You should be very proud of yourself for walking as much as you are. You're doing great. Good job.

    I'm really impressed by the way that you are still able to make us smile and giggle with your pictures, despite being in a lot of pain and discomfort.
I really hope that the storm passed, your pain decreased and you are able to get back out walking, albeit much less distance.
Take care, and I look forward to hearing about how you feel better soon! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You are totally amazing! All of that walking with the help of your new legs (that's what I call them) is awesome. You should be extremely proud of yourself. When the weather changes, I also feel the pain and tingling throughout my body.
With the storm coming in and too much walking, you need a day to rest and recover. Have a cup of soup and relax for today.
Hope you are feeling better after a good rest.

Everything in moderation.

    I think it is so awesome that you are now able to walk with your Bioness. However, it appears you may be over doing it, by doing too much, too soon. Listen to your body! Even those without MS must take rest days so that their body can repair. I hope you feel some relief when the weather improves. emoticon Denise

    The weather can affect you and levels of pain.
Personally I think your own mood can do that also.

I hope your pain Eases considerably very soon.

I think you're doing great with your steps.
Since I hurt my knee I have good days and bad days.
Work days and off days.
Almost always my off days I do not get Near what I usually on work day.
Usually workdays very from 10,000 to 15,000 steps.
I have had some off days where I haven't hit 500 steps.
Your body needs rest.
Now I don't worry about single days but the average for the week.

You Should be just thrilled with your progress!
As spark people Has said in many fitness Articles That the worst thing you can do for yourself is overdo it in any new fitness regimen.
Your body needs to adjust to new situations.

Take your time. Remember that even with baby steps you still go in the right direction!

    Sorry you're in pain. Mother nature is not always a nice mother, with barometric pressure issues (I too deal with them to some extent.). All you can do is your best and as long as you do that, you are doing fabulously. If the weather is nasty and your best is cut back by pain, that's all you can do, plain and simple. I congratulate you for doing the best you can.

    Sorry to hear you are in pain. I hope the weather gets better soon, or your body gets used to the changes. Don't feel bad if you need to rest. You have done so well. You have earned a rest, and most likely need a rest.

    I sure hope that your pain subsides and you are able to get out and at least do some walking today. You really over did it last Sunday! I hope that you plan on not doing that again, and if you do that you actually rest the next day!

Fingers crossed that the storm blows through quickly and you can have a great weekend.
