Remicade : Day 1001

Well, there we have it.  More than 1000 days with my body full of Remicade.
One thing I have noticed since eating more often, is that I am not AS tired as I used to be.  I still am, just not as much.  I use to get tired, or fatigued, about a week prior to infusion day, but this time, I started to get tired about a day prior. improvement.  I'm still exhausted after the infusion, but still working on that.

1000 days down.....

Crohn's, Sweat and Tears

Last week I saw a dietician to get started (or restarted) on an eating plan.  High protein, low fibre, little and often.  So, I have my regular breakfast, lunch and dinner, but also snacks at 9am and 3pm and another around 8pm.  I already feel I have a little more energy throughout the day.  I usually ate around 6am before work and not again until lunchtime, mainly because I didn't want to have to go to the bathroom at work (I come home for lunch).
With the help of a fellow Crohn's patient I met on Twitter, I have a 3 circuit workout program which I started on Wednesday.  DAMN!  am I out of shape!  I only did 4 exercises, 6 reps of each and I was so out of breath I had to lay down.  I'm sensing this is going to be a long process.  I certainly don't have the body of when I was a competitive where near.
But....I have the ball rolling and have to keep it rolling, wish me luck!
