#journaling 

This is something I have told myself I should do for a very long time. I don’t know why I hadn’t started this sooner!

Yesterday I started writing in my journal after attending a yoga class I hadn’t been to for a while. 
I’ve always had a lovehate relationship with yoga, mainly because I let my ego in. Expecting to be able to do all the poses anyone else can do, whilst forgetting that everyone is at different levels of ability and I have the added difficulty with my MS. 

Because of my MS it means moving my legs in particular is very hard and slow! The more I repeat the exercise the more my muscles fatigue and the slower I get! 

At this point yesterday I started to allow the #negativity in and then the self doubt. “I can’t do this” “I can’t do that” That’s when the tears roll and I know there’s no turning back. Negativity has hold of me! 
I’m so grateful for my beautiful Yoga teacher & healthcoach @louiseavilesyoga I couldn’t need her in my life more than I do now!

Squat until you walk funny

​Tee hee hee!
Don’t need to do squats to walk funny, I do that anyway! 

Tonight though, oh my, I only normally do 45 minutes Body Pump (weights) but the different class I went to was an hour long! 

It was AWESOME! Couldn’t really walk very well after & had really bad shakes, but I did it!! 👊💥
So grateful @keza_h was there to help me but my equipment away and walk me to my car! 😊

The things I’m grateful for that may seem odd to others

The things I’m grateful for that may seem odd to others

  • I’m grateful to my MS Nurses even though they still haven’t returned my calls 2.5 weeks later
  • I’m grateful to my GP even though ‘he’ was the one that compared me to another MS patient regarding my inability to work AND has just prescribed me what I like to call ‘Satans Smarties’ aka Methylprednisolone – Steroids
  • I’m grateful for all my wonderful friends & family that notice when i start to walk a bit ‘odd’ – actually I’ll correct that, very ‘odd’ even when i don’t notice it myself! If it wasn’t for you guys I’d still be happily walking along like I’ve lost my horse or had a very unfortunate accident in my underwear!
  • I’m also very grateful for all my wonderful friends/family that will have to endure me for the next week or so as I begin my course of Oral steroids! (yes, I said Oral! Who sniggered?)
  • I WILL be grateful if all of my wonderful friends/family could resist the temptation to bring cakes, biscuits, sweets & most importantly chocolate round if you come to visit whilst I’m resting at home. No matter how many times I beg, plead or even if I bribe you to bring me treats, please resist!

Thanking you kindly, Vix
