I've been off the forum for a few weeks. Needed some time to myself and figure out life. I have made a massive lifestyle change. I"m in my 3rd week of a very extreme exercise program. It's a 90 day home fitness program that includes diet and lifestyle changes. I'm hooked. Addicted almost! I look forward to every day with a new routine to do. It's extreme. Kicks my butt. However I feel great. No pounds lost (thanks to the prednisone I'm sure). but I have lost 5 inches overall. Dropped a shirt and pant size. I think the muscle I've gained is taking the place of the fat I'm losing so the scale is staying the same. I'm strong. I love how my legs look I feel clear headed, more positive. My diet is so much better. My fibro pain is nearly gone too. I'm not as stiff and sore in the mornings. Overall, it's been the best thing for me to do.
I'll be tapering down my prednisone again. The more I work out, the less I need pred. If anyone is curious about the program I'm on, please email me and I can give you all the info.
Other than that, life is humming along. Work is busy. I'm getting baptised on May 30! So I'm heading to church for my baptism class today. Excited about that! Hubby is good and it looks like we're finally going to get some summer weather. SHEESH!!!!
Talk with you all soon,
