A Pleasant Surprise!
Hi, healers! Today’s workout was interesting and exciting. I decided to warm up for 5-10 minutes on the elliptical (like I used to do at PT), stretch, and then do my core work (I decided on doing legs yesterday). When I started my warm up, I felt a little funky, but by the end of it, I felt great! I decided to keep going, and I made it through 30 minutes! It felt great to sweat again. After the elliptical, I did my PT stretches and core work while sipping 24 ounces of green juice (kale, spinach, cucumber, green apple, watermelon). My post workout breakfast was another Raw Revolution bar topped with raw cashew butter and raw cashews (one of my favorites!). Before my workout, I ate a big bowl of grapes and cherries and did a retention coffee enema. I'm about to go do my second.
I wanted to keep the inflammation down after I pushed my limits like that, so I filled my bath tub up with cool water and submerged my legs in it for about 15 minutes. It was an RSD/CRPS version of an “ice bath” since we have to watch the icing. I’m elevating while I write this and doing some job searching/applying, hoping that I didn’t push myself into any real flaring. So far, I don’t think so. I'm drinking a ginger and lemon Kombucha just in case. The more anti-inflammatory, the better.
I'll get back in the pool tomorrow.
