Products to keep your Joints Warm

If you live in the U.S. chances are you’ve been freezing your little tush off this week like me. 

Last night we got our first cold front of the season and it hit the low 50s! I know, I know. Some of you may be like laughing, but for Miami that’s freezing!! 🙂
Having Arthritis can mean that the cold whether really aggravates your joint pain, stiffness, and swelling and trust me, I am feeling it! 
Last winter, when I spent a week in Boston visiting my family I was in a wheelchair the entire trip because the cold made me so incredibly stiff! Boston is a beautiful city, but I don’t think I could ever live there just because the cold hurts my joints so much.
However, for those of you Arthritis Folks who live up north (or people who just don’t like the cold), keeping your joints warm could definitely help you, like its been helping me lately. It makes a real difference!  
So.. here are a few products I’m using right now to keep my joints nice and toasty! 🙂 

Sunbeam Heating Pad – This I actually use all year round cause it really helps when I’m feeling particulary stiff and you don’t have to keep heating it up in the microwave like some other heating pads. 
Warm Essentials Leggings  – This I wish I had taken to Boston, but unfortunately I didn’t think of it, so I froze. Luckily, I’ve been getting my use out of them this week. They’re great to wear under pants!  
Sunbeam Heated Fleece – This one I haven’t bought , but that’s only because my husband won’t let me! He thinks its a little too ridiculous for Miami. I disagree 😉 

Arthritis Walk 2013

Arthritis Walk 2013

Hey guys! 

So on Saturday I went to my very first Arthritis Walk
I have been dying to go for years, but never could because I was either in the hospital or way too sick. 😦 Thanks to my dear friend Julie, my dad, and my brother Josh this year I was finally able to go and it was AWESOME!! 

At first I was kind of hesitant because I knew I wouldn’t be able to do the actual walking, but my Support System was there pushing me in my wheelchair for 1.6 miles! I’m so grateful, I’m sure they were getting a hefty workout…lol. 
We even got to raise money for Arthritis while we were walking using this app called ‘Zimmer.’ The three of us with iPhones downloaded the app and were able to raise $1 for each mile we walked/rode. 

It was amazing seeing so many people supporting Arthritis Awareness and I had a fantastic time connecting with people in my community who either have arthritis or know someone who does. I even got to meet some Storm Troopers walking for a cure, cool huh?! 🙂

I can’t wait till next year when I plan on going again with more of my friends and family! It’s super fun and I highly recommend looking into walking and raising money for a great cause… (you can click on this link to find a walk in your area —> Walk to Cure Arthritis ) or just come with me! 😀
