RA health log. This week I am still taking the flexeril for my back pain and stiffness. I did get 2 massages in this week and have one scheduled for tomorrow morning. I only exercised once this past week. I did get some walking around in while taking photos.
I have been preparing this past week for a trip to Europe. Tomorrow I pick up my boyfriend from the airport and Sunday we head back to the airport to head to Dublin, Ireland. Then we will attend a conference in Spain and one in the Netherlands. I know I will get some walking in and less desk time while I am gone. Good to be moving but since I won’t be online much I probably only get this blog updated once a week.
RA health log. Today I am changing the health log a little. I will update it daily if I can or write about several days if I miss a day or two. Today I am catching up on the last week. Saturday I had stiffness in my hands when I was holding the camera. Monday night I began to get stiffness in my neck and shoulders. Yesterday it finally started raining and the pain and stiffness have went down in the pain levels. Just annoying right now.
I finally setup an appointment for a neck, back and shoulder massage, it is for Saturday and I am looking forward to it. Flexeril is definitely keeping the pain down, I did forget to take it one night and I was in pain while sitting the next day.
I only did exercise 2 days this past week, getting ready to hit the Wii now and I will try to do that daily if I can.
Day 93-94 of my RA health log. Still doing good with no pain or stiffness. Yesterday I reduced the Flexeril to 2 pills instead of 3, so far my back still feels good. I did call and leave a message at one place for massages, I hope to hear back from them tomorrow.
Yesterday I did do 30 minutes on the Wii Fit, 1 round of boxing which is 13 minutes then a variety of stretches and other exercises. I have not done any exercise today.
Yesterday I had a latte for breakfast, Starbucks venti mocha and cinnamon swirl for lunch and a cheeseburger and fries from Steak n Shake for dinner. Today I had a Starbucks venti mocha and cinnamon swirl for breakfast and will be making a salad for dinner.
Day 91-92 of my RA health log. No pain or stiffness and my back is still doing good with the Flexeril. Still doing a little catching up on some paperwork, I hope by Friday to have a few places to check out for massages.
No exercise still. I was hoping to get started on the Wii again today but just did not have the time. Tomorrow I hope!
Yesterday I had a latte for breakfast, a Starbucks venti mocha and cinnamon swirl for lunch and a slice of pizza for dinner. Today I had a latte for breakfast, Starbucks venti mocha and cinnamon swirl for lunch then a beef and cheddar with a chocolate shake for dinner. Hopefully I can get some time to go to the store for food this week!
Day 89-90 of my RA health log. Still living pain free while taking the Flexeril for my back. No other pain or stiffness. I need to start checking out places to go for massages.
Still no exercise besides walking around and talking photos.
Sunday I had some lamb, rice and mushrooms from the Taste of Porter County expo and it was yummy. Yesterday I had pork carnitas for dinner with rice and beans.
