I am positive about my body AND I’m actively trying to lose weight. I don’t use the phrase ‘body positivity’ specifically because there are so many different definitions of this and people get very wound up about what qualifies as body positivity and whether you are ‘truly’ body positive.
This is a walk I did a few nights ago, I’ve been meaning to add the post for a while now but I haven’t been well, as I’m sure most of you understand. The joys of life with chronic illness!
When it comes to fibromyalgia a lot of people who don’t have it or don’t completely understand it, don’t truly understand what I mean when I say I’m having a flare. They tend to think it’s ‘just’ a case of me being in pain and feeling tired, which are certainly symptoms but that isn’t what a flare is to me.
Yesterday I did a sponsored walk with family and friends for a dear friend that passed away a few months ago to pancreatic cancer. I was already flaring but was determined I was going to do it because it meant so much to me.
I haven’t written on my blog for a while because the heat has been causing my fibromyalgia to flare majorly. I haven’t been able to walk much or work on my fitness, but I have been trying to stay positive and get out there on my mobility scooter, and do bits and bobs when I’m able.
Hi all. This is my latest walk from a couple of nights ago, I’m desperately trying to make them more regular, and will keep updating my progress, but fibromyalgia loves to make that difficult. I keep reminding myself that I’m doing my best, and doing all I can. My determination is strong and I will keep plodding along towards my goals.
I managed to do a walk last night despite my pain levels being high and my mood being on the lower side.
