I miss my boxing.

I did not box today and I swear I am having withdrawal symptoms. I'm cranky and alert when I am usually sweaty and winding down. I took the day off from boxing because I have been working out like crazy lately. Everyone knows you need to rest up and not wear yourself out by doing too much too often.

Last night I was up about 3 hours after falling asleep and I was in some pain. My legs and back ached. Ached, people! I took some Aleve and finally got back to sleep. That was my sign to take it easy today.

A day off helps the body rest and repair itself from all the activity it's been undergoing. I just can't imagine three months ago saying that I miss exercise but it's true.

I'll keep moving it for as long as I can, with those occasional rest days thrown in there. Hope you're feeling well and able to move as much as you can!

Hi there,
I'm just starting to get testing done for MS...scary stuff! I am a young gramma of 2 and mom of 3, well 4 if you are like me and count the family pooch! Anyway, I enjoyed reading your 'ramblings'. They helped to lift my spirits a bit. I don't know anyone living with MS so I rely on the web to help me inform myself on what's to come. I know the symptoms I am living with now are intense and sometimes dibilitating but I make myself get up each day and do something productive. I am scared though... so I will bookmark your page and will read your thoughts and hopefully understand a bit better of the strength MS'ers have and how to live...
thanks, I hope you have a great day and get a chance to box today.
your new friend,

I'm so glad you found me. There are so many great blogs out there about MS and some of their links are on the right side of my blog.

Good luck on your journey through a possible MS diagnosis. I'll be here if you need a friend!
