We bought each other an exercise bike for Christmas and I have been slowly working up my strength.
Today I hit the mile marker. One mile ! Wow ! I'm very excited and very proud of this MS body. I slowly worked myself up to one mile because I didn't want to wear myself out. So there are probably a few of you laughing right now saying "big deal a mile". Well, to someone with multiple sclerosis it is a big deal, even a huge deal. When I first got on the bike Mark had to help my legs move. They just didn't get it. Today, I finally hit the mile marker and I'm proud of myself. Exercise is a crucial part of staying in shape for people with multiple sclerosis but I want to do more than just stay in shape.I want to get better. I know people think that all peope with multiple sclerosis are sitting on the couch watching TV I'm here to tell you diffrerently. Some of us are not quitters, some of us will get better. I'm living proof of that. So hitting a one mile marker is a big deal. Go back to laughing. I'm sure you didn't do any exercise today or even this week. For me, I am the only one laughing now. LOL ( for those of you who don't know lingo that means laughing out loud)
