The motivation I referred to in the previous post hasn’t worn away! I’ve been doing multiple exercises throughout the day and I can honestly say I feel great, minus being sore. Not a RA kind of sore, but an “I just used muscles that haven’t been used like this sore”. Sore is good though when it comes to getting fit. My RA is hardly bothering me at all. I believe it’s a combination of nice consistent weather, eating smaller and healthier portions, working out, and taking walks. WHY haven’t I done this sooner?! -oh that’s right…it was cold out. Once it becomes nice out it is much easier to feel motivated to accomplish such tasks.
I took a walk again today at the park and took some photos. It’s always interesting to “people watch” when you are out in public. A few people I noticed were an elderly couple on a motorcycle-super cute, a dad walking with his daughter while she drove around her barbie car, a lady tanning/reading, and a lady scolding her dog because it wouldn’t drop the ball.
Hopefully this abnormally warm weather sticks around! I’ve really learned to appreciate sunny days and am learning to love exercising. I really need to take proper care of my body, especially since my immune system is fighting against my joints.
Until next time, keep taking advantage of beautiful days.
