This morning I did CDorner Fast Basic Step plus abs 80's music, 64 minutes, heart rate 125/162, 4,864 steps, 282 calories. I finished off With CDorner Stretch After Step, 18 minutes, 32 calories. Total time was 82 minutes, 314 calories. I liked this step workout. No slowing down throughout the workout and no fancy choreography. Music was pretty good. There was a couple of songs in there that I like.
Roselyn, nice work with Epic Heat.
Debbie, great job on the treadmill walk and Raw Box and Sit. I did a workout recently that was short and not at all an intense pace, more just light movements and my heart rate was really high. I knew that there was no way that was correct. I was attracted to the workout because it was 70's music. There was even some of the lyrics on the screen LOL. Something must throw off the algorithm sometimes. I only remember going back to the surgeon for my meniscus twice. The first was shortly after surgery and the second a few weeks later. I am pretty sure that most of my foot problem is the rheumatoid arthritis. My foot is changing and their is a bone rising up above my big toe joint and the toe is curving in a bit toward the other. Tight shoes push two crooked toes into each other. I have had some odd feet since I was a kid. Broken toes and too tight shoes growing up. But they are changing for the worse. I will have to do something as I do not want to lose my ability to work out and stay active. The doctor told me what I was taking is not going to stop it. I need something to put it in remission. I was hoping all of the natural approach and keeping to an anti-inflammatory diet would slow it down. I have read a lot of naturopathic doctors stuff that they do for RA patients. It has been raining here this evening. I went outside to try and cut shrubs and clean out planters before everything is soaked. Glad I did.
Doreen, I hope the workout helped you relax after a 13-hour workday. Nice work going home and getting the barbell workout in. I think I would have taken the dog for a walk and skipped a workout myself.
Jolie, great job on the shoulders today. I have cut down to some shorter cardio days with the weights and occasionally no cardio so I can get in the stretching and mobility after a workout. I need to not do so much cardio and maybe I could add some muscle. Instead, I keep losing weight that I need on me. I love cardio workouts though. I do not think it is gout. Even when they put gout in my chart I did not think that was correct. I have went over supplements and what I eat etc. and I could not see why I would have gout. There was a time when the joints in my fingers would get hot and turn purple and hurt and I think that could have been gout. I have not had that happen in several years. Most of my pain is related to bones, and joints. It is getting overwhelming. Over the next two months I see my arthritis doctor and my cardiovascular doctor. The arthritis is affecting my arteries as well. I will keep searching. Oh, and I drink alkaline water all of the time. I buy bottles of Essentia water most of the time. I also was using alkaline greens from ancient nutrition that said alkalize, detox, and digest on it. By the time I was done with that and took a supplement from Ultra Cur people that had broccoli seed and curcumin and stuff in it that was a detox, I needed to back off detox stuff for a bit. I bought proteolytic enzymes as I read, they can help arthritis and allergies. I am pretty sure they are what was causing my stomach pain.
I bought some socks compression socks from Tommy Copper that have zinc and copper in them to see if they make my feet feel better. I am glad the toes of the socks aren't tight.
Belinda, nice work with SB barre upper body with weights. This is our windy month. It has started up some here. Today with the wind it was kind of cold when I was out working in the yard trying to get something accomplished before the rain. I think we have two more days of rain in the forecast.
Once my husband I went out to Florida and went to Epcot and Disney World. Then we paid for a yacht ride out in the gulf, just my husband and I and the skipper. We had lunch on the yacht and watched dolphins jumping around. It was a fun trip.
Did the plant based help with the RP when you did it all out before? I just know there are certain things that set off pain for me. Like valentine candy!! Also eating out and bad greasy food. Most of the time when we go out I get salmon and broccoli or salad. I prefer take home salad so I can use my own dressing on it.
