How was every one's holiday season? My family celebrates Christmas, and we had a great day! It's so nice spending time with family. I had a few stops to make, so the day was busy but fun. New Years Eve was spent going out to dinner with my fiance, and coming home to watch the ball drop. We were in bed by 12:10am! Ha! It was such a lovely evening though, I am not complaining!
My knees were bothering me a lot over Christmas, not much stiffness, but I was experiencing some bad pain. I'm not sure what it was, but it seemed to slowly go away. I see my Rheumatologist next Wednesday (11th), so we will see what he has to say and how my blood work is.
I'm trying to regain some muscle strength, and get some exercise. It's so hard to do when my fatigue knocks me on my butt, and when I do exercise I tend to overdo it when I feel good, and put myself into a flare. My fiance got me the Kinect for xbox for Christmas, along with some dance games. The games are such a workout, I'm sweating afterwards! They're so fun, and you're dancing away that you don't even realize that you're working out - it's both good and bad! Trying it out to get some exercise, along with my exercise bike, alternatively a couple days a week. I am starting off slow, and seeing how I do, then I will progress from there. Hopefully I can gain some of my strength back and it will help my fatigue, rather than hinder it. Time will tell. What does everyone else do for exercise?!
I've been seeing my chiropractor for aout 5 weeks now, and it seems to be helping a lot. My back pain has lessened significantly, and I already see an improvement with my posture. I still see him three times a week, and will probably keep that up for a while. If anyone has back pain, even just muscle pain from stress, I'd suggest seeing a chiropractor!
Anyways, working on some new blogs for the future. As always, thanks for reading! :)
