Day 1 of my Rheumatoid Arthritis health log. Today I woke up feeling good, had my latte and headed downstairs to workout. I did a total of one hour on my elliptical and fifteen minutes on the Bowflex. Currently I am trying to do intervals between the machines. Fifteen minutes on the elliptical then five on the Bowflex concentrating on core body muscles with only ten pounds for resistance. The elliptical I have set to manual. Last year I tried setting the resistance up one on the elliptical and it did not work out well for me.
Late this afternoon I had some slight stiffness in my left hand. The pain level was around a one, so it was just annoying. This lasted around five hours. I also had a stomach ache after I ate a few of the kid’s cheese puffs. That will teach me!
Today I had a granola bar for breakfast, a salad for lunch and egg salad for dinner. Now that I am up past my bedtime, my tummy decided it needed more food so I had a bowl of Fiber One cereal.
I am off for my eight hours of sleep!
