Monday is the day!!

The day of my first Remicade treatment and I am anxious but excited all rolled up in one. I am praying that this works the miracle with me that it has with others... if you are the praying type I wouldn't mind a hand ;)

On the X side... well, I am nothing but disappointed. I have had a crazy month of flare ups and evening meetings... so much so that I am going to TRY and pull my ass out of bed at 5am to get the workout in now that I have my morning schedule back on track. I spoke to my Mr. Wonderful about it tonight and he said that he knows that he can do it but because he knows how much I love to sleep he wonders if I will be able to pull it off (almost sounds like a dare to me... so the game is on!)

OMG, I should let you all know that my P90x coaches have just recently updated their website with their P90X results - you HAVE to check it out here. Aren't they AMAZING!!! You can have them for your free coaches too... check it out on their website. It has made me dig deep and find the energy and start over AGAIN.

Anywho, I will be updating on a regular basis again so that I can stay accountable... that is when I do the best.

Make it a great day ... and I miss you all!

What has been keeping me busy

I had to share some photos of why I have had such a hard time to keep on track this winter... but no regrets because I still have 90 days to get back into shape before my dear, sweet sister gets here. So, here are some photos:

Taking it easy until my treatment

Hello to all you bloggers out there... I have been missing my ME time, which includes blogging. I am trying to lay low and manage my flare ups until my new treatment begins. I should know this week what date that should be.

As for workouts, I have taken out our bikes and Mr. Wonderful and I went for a short but fast ride in the frigid winter weather and I LOVED it! I have also been on the treadmill running intervals of 5 minutes now and feeling good. This week I think that I will up it to 6 and then I am going to get a good workout playlist on my Ipod and not look at the time to see how far I can run.

P90x will recommence this week. I know I said that last week but Mr. WOnderful went downstairs and worked out with a young teenager and worked his leg muscles so hard that it took him a while to recover... so I was waiting for him :P ANyway, this is the week.

Make it a great day!

A new addition :P

Yesterday it was recommended that I add Remicade to my drug family and I accepted. I will do just about anything at this point to hide the pain and carry on with my life... this is step one :) In a week or so I will be sitting in a room just like this one getting my first infusion... oh I am praying for a miracle!!

Make it a great day!

Well, we have made it to Monday

Tonight begins our second attempt at round two of the X. We are not going to be starting over, just picking up where we left off... and we are excited about it. I have to admit that I hate the beginning of any journey like this because I KNOW that I will have to force myself to walk downstairs after I get the children to bed and get busy pushing play... it will not be excitement that I will be facing but almost dread. I dread the thought of having lost strength that I had worked so hard to build, I dread that feeling of "starting over" again... but I dread the thought of seeing my sister for the first time in 3 years and not looking smoking hot more... so that is my motivation for this round. I wanna show my baby sister that she has a HOT older sister that can still kick her ass is she steps outta line, muhahahaha

Today I have to go and see my specialist about my dreaded condition... I am asking him to reconsider the meds that I am on and to recommend something else because, let's face it, they just are not doing their job! I want to feel good, most of the time.... not some of the time, so wish me luck.

I will update with stats and reflections about Chest and Back tomorrow.

Make it a great day!

Getting back on track is easier said than done

... but I have never taken any easy road, so this too we shall overcome.

Thanks for your kind words of support. Since I have last posted we went on a family vacation and had some much needed quality family time. Then we had to deal with some issues surrounding one of our children and have since made some changes in our daily routine to accommodate those changes. We are slowly getting used to the situation and starting to feel good about our radical reactions because if you really knew me you would know that I would go to the ends of the Earth for any of my family.

Anyway, I am missing our daily workouts which is the time that my Mr. Wonderful and I are able to connect... we need that again and we will be cautiously picking it back up on Monday...

With all the hell we have been through, all I can say is BRING IT ON TONY... I can take it!!!

Make it a great day!
