New Ideas

Monday, February 10, 2014

Going to start my new exercise streak today. Well, maybe not a streak. I think I am going to consciously just do 5/7 days a week. When I workout every day, I really hurt when I am sleeping. The funny thing is, after not exercising all weekend, my weight was down 2 lbs from last Monday. Mondays are usually my worst days. Go figure...

I am starting to truly believe that we have to give our bodies a rest. I find that if I don't work out as hard every day, that I sleep better at night. I don't wake up with pain in my legs. Part of it could also be this cold. I'm sure I have a tendency toward arthritis with all the surgeries I have had.

I have been putting off going back to my doc until the cold breaks to see if the pain goes away. Otherwise, I think I am due for another epidural injection in my neck. The last one was in August. My shoulder is sore as well from where I had the last surgery, but, again, I think that part of it is the cold. It feels like all the muscles lock up in the cold.

    Could be the cold. My DH can predict the weather cold or rain by the pain in his knees (had surgery years ago on both). Hope the weather warms up where you live and you feel better.
