Here's a snapshot of the dinner I cooked after spending a good half hour at the gym....
This little beauty consisted of my new favourite obsession; courgetti that was seasoned with a small amount of chilli powder and a teaspoon of tomato puree; spinach, cauliflower and salmon. I topped it off with a little bit of mozzarella cheese as well done to myself for being healthy. It was delicious.
In other news, I've been busy busy busy working on my stamina and general wellbeing to try and improve my ability to cope with my condition. It's not been easy, but hey, it's worth it. The gym is going well, I can manage 15 minutes on the cross trainer at a reasonable pace and not be completely dying afterwards. I can even go on to do 10 minutes on the rowing machine if I have a small break between. Both of these low impact exercises are making a difference to my general strength and fitness levels and it's really comforting to know I'm getting somewhere at last... In fact, I've reached a point where I can begin weight training again as repetitive movements aren't the agony they were before. They still can hurt a fair bit, and I'm still having to learn to understand the warning signs that stuff isn't workout pain, it's EDS pain, but I'm getting there.
Give me some time and I might get to look like this eventually
Haha... in the distant, distant future maybe.
