Rest Day

Well to start off, I have taken a rest day today.  I've been working out for the past 4 days and today just felt like a good day to give my body the day off.  I think it's important to remember to give yourself that.  I do admit, I always feel better when I work out, however, I needed today.

I have an appointment this morning with an RA/Lupus doctor.  This is the 2nd doctor I am going to see about this.  The first doctor said I tested positive for Lupus but then said I didn't have Lupus.  It's complicated.  So I'm going this morning to get a second opinion.

I bring this up because dealing with the pain I get in my joints has an effect on my exercise.  If I have a bad night with pain, I wake up sore the next morning.  Or several times a week I'll wake up with swelling in hands that are sensitive to touch.  It's a problem that's effecting my productivity and it's important to my health that I get treated, no matter what the diagnosis is.

I have also decided to join weight watchers.  The two closest girlfriends I have are also joining so it's going to be exciting to have them alongside with me.  I go to my first meeting Saturday morning.  I will not be going to the meetings regularly because of sports with my son and my husbands work schedule, but I won't need to because I'll have all the motivation I need already.  I'm really looking forward to it.

Well I better run for now, need to get up and going.  Thanks for keeping up with me and following me!


  1. I know many women who have joined weight watchers with lots of success. I hope its a good fit for you! Best of luck at your appointment.

  2. I'm so sorry you're in pain. *Hugs* Hope you get answers soon. Good luck with your weight loss journey. You're gonna do great! :)
