Scary night

Wednesday, July 04, 2007

July 3rd.
Had a very scary time last night. I'm extremely anemic and haven't been taking my iron and vitamins daily like I should. They have to be taken with food and I either don't have them with me or I forget at the time. At any rate one of the effects of anemia is heart palpitations. I had a very bad episode last ight when I went to bed my throat closed up and my heart started jumping around all over the place. It was a very long and draining episode, I even took two nitro tablets after my husband called an all night pharmacy to find out about side effects and conditions for taking them. Today I slept half the day to regain my strength. The doctor wants me to take my iron 3 times a day, so I have to try and do better. Having your heart jump around is a very scary feeling. Hopefully next time I'll have something more upbeat to talk about. I really want to be able to start exercising and getting on the right track. Everyone have a nice and safe 4th.


My personal 45 day challenge

Sunday, July 01, 2007

July 1st. After months of health fears I have been given a clean bill of health, wanting to keep it that way, I am throwing off all the stress I have been living with and giving myself the 45 days until I go back to work to make some changes that hopefully will become habit like they used to be.
Now that I can exercise I am going to walk at least 20 min. a day, eat more salads and fruit, drink more water and make time for ME each day to unwind. I am going to try to blog my progress , even if just one word, each day. So luck to me and let's get started!!! :)
