Last week was a huge challenge for me. Not only was I battling a a horrible flare for almost 3 weeks but the Prednisone side effects cause increased appetite and crabbiness, add a little PMS in there and I had some huge challenges. Overall I think I did pretty good. I definitely can't say I failed at my goals. I didn't walk the last 4 days but as much pain as I was in I think I have to cut myself some slack and the most important thing is now that infusion is tomorrow, I have to recover and get back to the walking immediately. Overall my eating was pretty good I need to tweak a few things yet but every failure is a lesson learned. I can honestly say in the past months I would have given up by now. RA would be in complete control.
Goals For Week Two
Get hair styled on Saturday for dinner night :)
- Keep on track with the healthy meals and snacks.
- Keep on track with 2 to 3 walks a day and try to increase the time.
- Start wearing a pedometer so I can increase steps in the day.
- Try to incorporate some light weights.
So here we go with another week :)
