My Journey

My Life, one day at a time!

Howdy Peoples!

Another stormy day here in the city.  I was lucky though on my jalk this am, the rain and storms did not move in until after we got in.  I thought the moon was absolutely awesome this morning.IMG_3110  What do you think, pretty cool, right?

While I was was pushing myself to work out this morning, I was listening to one of my favorite podcast, and it kind of hit me.  Sometimes, I feel that I am obsessed with walking and working out EVERYDAY!!  Ok, I do walk everyday, but I only work out 5 days a week. If I miss more than two days, I feel guilty about this.  The gals on the podcast were talking about this and how it doesn’t hurt to once in a while just not work out.  I agree with this, to an extent.  I do not work out because I want to look like Barbie,  let’s face it, I could spend 8 hours a day in the gym and not be lean and mean, but I work out like I do because of my auto immune diseases.  For me, and I speak only for me, if I am not active every day, and quite a bit everyday, I get VERY VERY stiff, everything on my body hurts, and sometimes I even get kind of lethargic.  For me, it is very important to be active every day.  Now, don’t misunderstand, I do allow myself to be lazy one day a week, and that day is usually Sunday’s.  But I learned the last time I traveled, if I do not walk enough, or move around enough, it is very hard on me.  I am better off walking a lot or even getting a quick work out in.  This is something that is very hard for hubs to understand.  He thinks I would feel better relaxing MORE.  This is something I cannot make him understand.

Which brings me to another subject, another pet peeve of mine.  Ok, I do not need NOR want anyone to feel sorry for me.  I am really in good physical condition, kind of, however, people do not understand what RA does to your body.  I will NEVER get over this, I will be on meds my entire life, and when people realize you have this, they are like oh ya, I know how that feels.  I just want to say, unless you have been diagnosed with this, you have NO CLUE how it feels.  RA is not a disease of just the joints.  It affects every part of your body, your bones, your muscles, your internal organs, your digestive system,  your eyes, EVERYTHING!!!  It can affect your immune system.  Now, I just learned, that some of the things I have been using to ease the pain, because I am on a daily steroid, my liver is being affected.  We are working on that now, but it is always something.  (sorry to rant here, but I am really tired of this and if I could wave my magic wand and be done with this, I would)!!!  I am very seriously thinking of trying the elimination diet, to see if I can fix this by diet and exercise alone, but I know that is just wishful thinking!!!

Ok, on to happier things.  I am making progress with the podcast, but it still will be after the fourth of July.  I am very excited about, that is why, everyday, I work really really fast to get my

work done so I can work on the podcast.  Again, please send any and all suggestions for topics to

Ok, WHO CHECKED THEIR Horoscope today?  Well of course I did:

You’re not a mind reader, but you do have a strong sense of what motivates people. This helps you greatly today. You’ll be placed in some very interesting situations with strangers or people you don’t know very well — most will be entertaining, but a few could be frustrating or time-consuming. Therefore, if you can anticipate the actions of the people around you, you’ll be one step ahead of everyone else — and you’ll end the day in leisure.

I like the part that says I will end the day in leisure, come on end of day!  Maybe a little cocktail to go with that !!

Ok kiddo’s, I have bitched long enough, but funny, I feel better.  So, until next time, remember to send me your comments or questions

and hydrate, let’s all take a drink now, be active, get up and move, be happy, keep a smile on your face, and everybody do a little dance!!!


I would love to hear your feedback
