Be kind to yourself

I may not be the strongest
I may not be the fastest
But I’ll be damned if I’m not trying my hardest!

I may not be able to go to every exercise class I book, working hard in classes tests me the next day!
Hard choice but sometimes I just have to say to myself, I’m being kinder by letting my body rest, for now!
Some people may think it’s quitting, I know different!

HAPPY MS AWARENESS WEEK!

I love Fight Klub!

Brilliant Fight Klub last night with Hannah Bailey!

Had this T-shirt with me so whilst I finished the class early as usual to try my best to get my temperature down, I thought it most appropriate to hold this top up during the gruelling abs section!
Everyone seemed to appreciate it 😄

Btw, I wish I could take part in the abs section but I have to use that time to cool down!
My internal thermometer is fooked thanks to my MS! When I over heat it triggers all of my symptoms, meaning I can hardly walk, balance, see, hear, talk, oh the list goes on!
At least once my temperature is at a safe level my symptoms subside and I just walk and talk like I’m pissed!

I’m so pleased I’ve found something that helps to keep me cool!
*the t-shirt doesn’t keep me cool, just to clear that up! It’s a cloth that is extremely cold when wet! For those that attend fight klub or any other cardio classes I attend, it’s that pink cloth I always have either around my neck or over my head like a nun! 😂😜*

I LOVE FIGHT KLUB!

Practicing Pilates at home can have its downsides #pilates #pilates4ms #pilateslovers #ms #spms #multiplesclerosis #thisgirlcan #ishapeme

Today I did my best ever Pilates ‘100’ (top pic) every time I seem to be getting better especially when I do it ‘Hannah style’ (one of my Pilates instructors)
Beating away trying my best to keep count on my last set & our dog decided she wanted a drink, anyone that knows Ollie will also know that she has got to be the messiest dog when it comes to drinking!
I knew it was going to happen, I don’t know why I didn’t move sooner! There I am lying on the kitchen floor, Ollie has a drink of water, walks over to me a drips it all on my face! 😨

Next was ‘The Plank’ (bottom picture) nothing quite as disgusting as above but really annoying for me!
My most impressive FULL Plank ever, yes… FULL PLANK and neither Deb nor me counted how long I held it for!
I’m not talking a record time or anything like that but surely something in the region of a minute which let me tell u,  seriously impressive for me!
NEXT TIME I SET MY WATCH!

•Heavy lifeless legs ✔
•Extreme relentless pain for no good reason ✔
•deep burning like my thighs are in a furness ✔

Yep, must be MS! 😩
Bring on tomorrow’s Pilates! Pain for a reason! 👌👍👏
