After writing then reading my last entry I realized that I haven't been taking care of myself as I should. When I was first diagnosed with lupus fourteen years ago I started working out to stay healthy. All that changed after I moved back to California. I started experiencing joint swelling and pain that lasted for almost three years. Thankfully, today I now only occassionally have joint swelling and pain, but not to the same extent. While I've tried over the years to get back into a routine I haven't quite managed to do so. Until now.
I've decided to go "back to basics". I am making a conscious effect to take better care of my self. I've started working out again which is nothing short of miraculous and I've been doing it now for three weeks!
