Blog 6/5/11 (day 39)

Today I got my first nose-bleed.  I had forgotten that I use to get these when I was on prednisone the first time.  It is not a big deal and it goes away quickly but I do remember getting these on occasion the last time I was on high doses of prednisone.  I expect to get a few more but then they will stop.  It may be a result of prednisone causing the skin to thin because prednisone does not cause nosebleeds directly.

Trying to stay healthy while coming into contact with people who have colds and sinus infections is not easy.  It is making me feel tired.  I am still working out but it is more difficult right now.

Today I walked 3 miles in the morning, and worked out at the gym.  I did leg presses, calf raises, some abdominal exercises, 30 minutes interval training on the treadmill, and 10 minutes on the elliptical machine.

My weight is holding steady so far by that is because I am losing muscle and gaining fat.
