Diagnosis and omg I really need ST

Monday, November 19, 2012

From last week

"Mon: 20 Min Zumba + ST (upper body) + stretching
Tue: 20 Min Zumba
Wed: 20 min Zumba + ST + stretching
Thur: 20 min zumba
Fri: 20 min zumba + ST (core) + stretching

I am so dingy! I didnt realize ST could be with your own body weight!! And that things such as wall pushups/planks/leg raises etc count!!!

Wonder how long it will take to see a little definition and less jiggle?? "

I pretty much stuck to the schedule - the friday turned into a sunday work out though!

OK Monday was 2 types of wall push up (felt it by the end - so that felt good and like I was doing it right)

Wed - couldnt get the video to play :o(

Fri - I didnt get up in time to do before work, and as always happens - didnt feel like it after, so this work out got pushed to sunday

Sunday - anyone as out of shape as I am? bicycle crunches - had to stop several times before I could make t to 12!! Then came lateral raises ( lay on back with feet straight up in air, lower and raise! I think I did 5!!! PITIFUL!!! Pendulum was hard but ok, side plank - what a joke couldnt get up so I tried to do on elbow - I might have held form 2 seconds!!

I also got some bad news friday! It has been confirmed that I have rheumatoid arthritis and they are referring me to a specialist! I have thought I was showing signs of getting it for years now, but to have it confirmed! I broke down!! I felt like - Here I am 1/2 way (almost ) to my weight lose goal - felling for the 1st time ever that this is going to happen! I am going to make it to 150, maybe even 140....then this

Will the medicine make me fat, will the pain keep me from exercising, will my body get all mangled like my moms...AUGH

    So sorry for the hard diagnosis. Hug

    You have been doing well on the program (half done!) so maybe you should continue with what has been working. Loosing weight and getting stronger can only help.

    Try not to worry about the future. Instead, make decisions for today based upon the best information available. Then live your life with enjoyment.

    Try not to worry. I have had R.A. since I was 38 years old and now I'm 60. I learned ways to cope and I do very well. Diet and exercise have really helped me. I have a good quality of life and you can too.

    emoticon love i know how rheumatoid arthritis can affect someone ,so do yopu obviously from your mom but one thing i can recomend is to work and fight through thr pain.i have two classics examples for mother let her pain control her instead of the other way the end she couldn´t even hold a cup of tea by herself,i from the age of 9 had to dress wash and feed my mom as she lost the use of her fingers,could hardly walk without the use of two walking sticks nana onthe other hand although riddled just as bad as my mom fought to the end through the pain.she knitted to stop her joints going stiff and she made bread right up to the day i die.i know i will also probably have rheumatoid arthritis and can see my joints starting to deform already but i know who´s example i will be using.that of my there is alot more choice of treatments and the medication is more effective as well.hope you can find the right treatment for you.take care and keep smiling.p.s.well done on the strength training emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
