I’m so frustrated. I keep wanting to get back into a fitness routine, but because of my Crohn’s I just can’t seem to get started.
Seriously. Right now my right side is aching so bad that I can barely walk around my house let alone think about picking up the ‘ol Kettlebell and start doing a bit of a work out.
Seriously – how does a person with a chronic illness that keeps acting up manage to stay in shape? I certainly haven’t found a way!
Luckily I was fairly active in the summer – getting out and walking more and of course doing work in my garden. Believe me … when I work in my garden it is a workout because I’ll stay out there digging and stretching over the raised garden beds until I get whatever job I’m working on done … sometimes I’m out there for eight hours at a time – even if I’m in excruciating pain! I call it extreme gardening. LOL
Now that the weather is beginning to get a little cooler I want to try to find a way to stay active and in shape indoors. Yeah I could go out and walk or even jog in the winter, but when it’s -25 Celsius out and there’s three feet of snow that’s not really the best kind of activity.
As usual I’m going to hope that this pain goes away so that I can do something that keeps me active. I certainly have enough fitness equiptment in the house to get me in shape. I just need to feel well enough to use it.
