11:03 a.m.
Today I am in pain and my back is really not cooperating at all.  I've been in pain for a few days now.  I over medicated night before last (took pain med and muscle relax early evening and then again at 1am when pain persisted) and then slept nearly 24 hours and now I've been up for 15 hours.  I need to get my days and nights in order again.  I took my naproxen just a bit ago because I cannot stand the pain any longer.  I haven't been to the RA doctor since the insurance ended in October.  I haven't had regular RA treatment in that amount of time either.  I'm not sure when it will be affordable again so I must begin to eat healthy and commit to regular exercise.  Calories in must be less than calories out.  Today is bust because of soda and food I've eaten overnight so as of this moment I will begin to be more attentive to calories in and will try to get to the gym one more time this week.  I lifted 2 pound weights for strength on Sunday at home using the same routines that brought results in 2007 and then I went to the gym on Monday where I walked the treadmill for 21 minutes plus rode the bike for another 10 minutes.  This is quite possibly why I am in so much pain (which was much worse Tuesday night but still painful today).  I believe I will aim for the pool on the next visit to the gym to stretch in the water and walk the pool with a follow-up to the hot tub to relax for a bit.  I hope to do this either today, tomorrow or Saturday.

Goal is to get to gym 2x this week (one down), 3x next week, and eventually by adding one day a week be at the gym 5x - 6x each week.  Caloric goal is 1200 - 1500 calories a day - amount depending on if I hit the gym.  I can and will do this.  If God is for me why should I be against me?  Time to really take care of this temple of his.
