I'm Doing It!

Today I met another one of my goals. My family and I rode a nine mile loop through Waterfall Glen Forest Preserve. It is one of our favorite places to ride. The trail has some steep sections and I handled each and every one of them. Plus, as my husband noticed, I wasn't even limping afterwards. In fact, six hours later, I still feel fine.

I did experience a few problems today -allergies and mosquitoes. But my joints? They did such a wonderful job. I am so proud of them. There was one incline that challenged my leg muscles and my lungs due to little exercise in the last year or more but it felt so wonderful to be challenged.

Bike riding with my family is one of my very favorite activities. Thank you Enbrel. Thank you Methotrexate. Thank you healthy diet. Thank you positive thinking. Thank you joints for sticking with me with through thick and thin. We are doing it!
