Madeline Simon (MS) – Two flat weeks then some results

Quite a flat week this week but on the positive side I have started making my Christmas cards and my exercise routine is starting to get back to where it should be. There is no excuse but I do find that the change in weather i.e. the pressure changes, have a lot to answer for.

I have made a couple more purchases for Christmas presents: one via the Internet (a great help); and the other from an excellent music shop nearby – a very trendy acoustic guitar for my youngest nephew, age 7. I’m sure he will love it…so I hope he doesn’t read this entry in my journal!

It is not often I have a real flat week but I have just had one. My motivation has been very poor and as for my exercises – NOT GOOD AT ALL! I don’t feel good about it at all but next week will be different, I PROMISE.

I have learnt through the years that the MS has a mind of its own but one must never give up, otherwise it wins. I’m starting to feel more positive and determined as I write this. So watch out for next week, it will be mega.

A big improvement has been made. My hour long Pilates kicked the week off in the right direction and my swimming was another success. I went a bit later than normal and had the pool all to myself. I’ve also picked up my Powerbreathe again. My monthly results do show a slight deterioration, just proving to myself how important it all is. Now it’s onwards and upwards again after that negative blip.
