Walk Your A.S. Off & Unity Run

This past week I joined Team SarcASm of Walk Your A.S. Off, Lloyd is participating as well. This is an easy walk that anyone can join. If you are already doing walks daily you can track your steps and submit them to your team leader each week. The team leader will submit them to Walk Your A.S. Off, it is that simple. You can track your steps with a pedometer or calculate them as 2000 steps per mile.  Lloyd and I each submitted 42,000 steps, so that makes 84,000 steps together this past week. If you want to join Team SarcASm let me know or contact Hurt Blogger, she is the team leader for Team SarcASm.

The crowd running and walking at the Unity Run Pasadena to support and honor those at the Boston Marathon 2013.

I also joined the Unity Run Pasadena on Sunday April 21st, 2013 for my first three mile walk, the furthest distance I have been during a walk since remission started a couple months ago. Doing some community or awareness walks is part of my “Remission Wish List“.

The Unity Run Pasadena gathering was in honor and support of those at Boston Marathon 2013 attack. The short notice and informal gathering was only successful because of the support of the community. Follow the Unity Run Facebook Page to see photos from the Pasadena event as well as other Unity Runs that take place worldwide. You can see all the photos of the Unity Run Pasadena at Got Baddog.

Before the Unity Run began there was a moment of silence in honor of those at the Boston Marathon 2013. Also there was someone playing Amazing Grace on the bagpipes right before the start. You can see the video on CNN; this was also my first time being vetted on CNN.

I am looking forward to more walking and I will continue to walk each day that I can.


RA Health Log Day 18

Day 18 of my Rheumatoid Arthritis health log. Today I woke up with stiffness in my shoulders, pain level 1, just annoying. The stiffness lasted most of the day. I did both of my shots today, enbrel and B12. I was supposed to do the on Thursday, so I am a little late.  I enjoyed being lazy today after spending five days in Vegas I needed a relaxing day.

This morning I had a latte. This evening we went to Big Itzik in Encino, CA., it was yummy (photo of food)! We had 20 house salads with falafel balls, hummus and mixed meat skewers. I am so full!

After dinner we took around a 30 minute walk. Now I am looking forward to spending the evening on the couch with my boyfriend.

Biotinidase Deficiency Not RA

Diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in Dec 2003 because of joint pain and fatigue. Found out on July 19, 2013 that I really was profoundly low on Vitamin B7 because of a rare disease called Biotinidase Deficiency. When I found out I was very weak, hardly could get out of bed, could not turn my head without getting light headed, dragging my feet when I tried to walk, struggled to breath daily for years and was having many many other issues. From the first 24 hours of taking Biotin my symptoms started to disappear and my body started getting stronger again.
