I am trying to follow along with Chris and her idea of blogging her weight issues. Although blogging about weight is not a new concept, her post struck me at the right time...it's called motivation...
I'm not sure how to follow with Chris other than a general healthier life. My weight issues stem from medication weight gain or loss, so that would not be a huge focus of my posts.. It would be more general than that, but still focusing on taking my life back from unhealthy practices..
Anyway, I'm real lousy at taking care of myself. Even simple things..making sure I take all my meds, at the right time.. I never do that.
I started knitting and crocheting as physical therapy for the small joint arthritis, that comes with lupus. Keeping the joints moving helps decrease the pain, and of course, increases function. A win-win situation...
My healthy project is a lapghan (lupus causes real temperature issues for me)..and coincidentally, that lapghan is designed by Chris.
This week I have been battling the stomach flu going around...I don't feel bad, just tied to the house. So I lived on saltines and soda..not exactly healthy eating..but it's all that the stomach would hold. I've broken out the Lysol wipes and am disinfecting everything!
