There are days when working out things so difficult especially when I am having a flare. I have to make a decision whether to continue a workout or put it to the side. Then I think do I really want to be a quitter every time I feel plain that I know I can endure. So I had to make a decision whether to push through to meet my goals are just put everything on hold for a few days.
I did make a decision, I am not a quitter so I decided to do my workouts. The difference is I had to decrease my weights, I had to modify some of my movements. I had to proceed with caution. My workout was a success my pain remain the same but I was able to do my workouts without harming my body and I was proud.
I know everyone cannot do this however I do encourage those who are working out with RA began to know their limits and not be a quitter. I am saying this because this is a autoimmune disease that I’ve had to battle since childhood. To have a quality life sometimes we have to push through just with caution.
To everyone working with rheumatoid arthritis I ask you to know your limits be caution but never give up, never quit. Just as I believe in me I also believe in you have a great workout week
