Dear Santa,

Please bring me a treadmill. I promise to use it every day. I have tried very hard to be good. I know sometimes I've slipped and I'm sorry. I will try to do better.

Love,

emmie
PS Maybe some of my friends at Sclero would like one or a stationary cycle or eliptical, too!

I hope Santa is good to you Emmie,
As for me. That is why I want to go to Florida. So I can get outside some and walk and exercise. I need to see and enjoy new surroundings instead of just my carpeting. That is the same color throughout the entire house. I got my new computer as my holiday gift. So, I won't expect another thing. Just want to be able to communicate with my new family here and, any day I wish. Maybe next year I will ask for exercise epuiptment. Maybe! Sheryl
Strength and Warmth,
Sheryl

Dear Santa,
Please bring me energy so I can go to the gym so I can exercise and reduce my fatigue.

I was just told yesterday by my rheumatologist that I need to exercise more, that it would help with my fatigue and my shortness of breath. I tried last week to get on my treadmill (I have a very nice home gym, with a bazillion pieces of equipent) for 20 minutes and was unable to walk for 2 days afterwards due to back pain. He told me I jumped into too fast. So I'm going to try it again!!
Warm and gentle hugs,

I try to do easy yoga and easy walking on the elliptical machine at least once a week. It helps and I tend to sleep better too.

Easy is the key!
Keep at it Sweet!
