Whew. I have missed two seasons. For the last four months, I was working on putting together a health and fitness expo. I have had only one flare-up that lasted about eight weeks. Other than the normal deep spinal cord pain and muscle weakness, I have felt fantastic.
My spinal cord hurts deep inside with a sunburn feeling from the base of my skull to my lumbar spine. That is from the syrinx. It has been a constant pain for months. Possibly because I haven’t been swimming. Or using my Stairmaster regularly. BOOOO me! It was a birthday gift and aside from swimming and lifting (light) weights, the Stairmaster is my favorite exercise. Lifting weights is supposedly a no-no with the Syringomyelia. However, it is good for M.S. and other diseases in that family. Besides, it burns fat and keeps the skeleton and muscles in excellent shape. And after a few months of working and not taking care of myself… I need to get rid of some fat. Oh-my!
Between working my show and having some days of rest here and there, I did find time to enjoy this Southern California fall and winter weather.
That just about wraps up the busy year. I hope 2013 is a great year for everyone filled with an abundant amount of good health and joy. Get up and keep moving. Stay strong. Move that body or lose that body.
