Yesterday I had the day off and I went with a G/F and nearly died doing a stair workout. There is a group of stairs 190 in fact that run up a steep hill, we cranked out 5 lots and I felt like I was going to vomit!! Nice, but felt I had achieved something after I had cooled down and got some fluid into me. I then went and did two peoples hair cut and colour, in the afternoon I went to my first naturopath appointment to see if she could help me with my Meniere's disease. If you have never heared of this before neither had I until about 6 months ago. Here's a rundown of it..
What is Meniere's Disease? Meniere's disease is a vestibular disorder that produces a recurring set of symptoms as a result of abnormally large amounts of a fluid called endolymph collecting in the inner ear.
Symptoms: During an attack of early-stage Meniere's disease, the main symptoms are spontaneous, violent vertigo, fluctuating hearing loss, ear fullness, and/or tinnitus. Following the attack, a period of extreme fatigue or exhaustion often occurs, prompting the need for hours of sleep. The periods between attacks are symptom-free for some people and symptomatic for others.
All in all not a great thing to have!! Oh well there are many other people with worse things going on. So my naturopath gave me a cocktail to take 3x a day we'll see if it helps.
Then I went to to gym with husband and we trained Back and Shoulders, we both had a great work out.. This morning I went with my G/F again and went for an hour run which included one set of those horrible stairs again. I felt really good after that, but sore now it's later in the day.. No pain no gain, but to much pain no train... as they say!!
I have been adding people to my Blog List slowly, I do read a lot of them when I'm at work, I'm looking forward to the support of everyone on the lead up to April.
Take care everyone
