dr appt

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

ok so i liked him better. Echo was good...blood flow totally normal so no blockages. Heart fine. so it WAS the potassium deficiency that caused the incident.
Apparently the soda thing was for the caffeine. it was the delivery that was bad. First he says you need to lose weight. then you need to stop drinking soda (this when i was lying in ICU scared and worried). Yesterday its..you HAVE to stop drinking soda and coffee and tea, and no chocolate. I said wait...are you talking about caffeine intake? Yes he says..i start laughing..i said look...i havent had caffeine since 1990 when this happened the first time. Once in a very great rare while i have a little chocolate but its not my favorite thing. I have NEVER drank coffee. I gave up caffeinated tea in 90, and havent had a caffeinated soda since then either. on the rare occasion i have one its a fresca. He looks shocked.says oh..you are fine then.
Not ONE word about my weight. i'm sure that droppin 8 pounds since i was in the hospital 2 weeks ago didnt hurt that!!!
anyhow..i guess you are rid of me yet.

    Yay! Loved this entry! I'm so glad that everything is going well in terms of recovery, etc. What can you do about the potassium?

    I *love* it how you clipped that caffeine lecture in the bud! He could have asked how much caffeine you ingest before launching on the lecture to stop. LOL!!!

Glad to hear everything checked out okay. That must be a HUGE load off your mind!

    Bananas! muchos bananas! Silk Soy milk is good for potassium too. Are you going to start taking a supplement for the potassium now? I hope you are doing well. You deserve to have a nice healthy & pain free summer!

    Now my silly friend, I don't want to be rid of you. You bring sunshine in my life with your wit and humor.

Did he say anything more about the potassium? I know I almost lost my DH a few years ago because of potassium deficiency. We address it nutritionally and with a potassium pill every day. Postassiuim is so important too little you die, too much you die.

Way to on the weight loss, even if it did get scared off you. It is off.

Alison would YOU strip down to your underwear in front of a thousand or so people and national TV cameras and jump in 50 degree water???? LMAO..when i was 20 i would have..not now that i'm old. But i WOULD have in a bathing suit!!

today is my doc appt...wish me luck i'm bracing myself for the fat talk. i know i will get it. i already got it in the hospital. "stop drinking soda" he says...I DONT DRINK SODA. then he says..you need to get up half an hour earlier and ride the bike for half an hour then walk at least 2 miles after work. ok so that means i have to get up at 4, because i already get up at 5, and i will need a shower after that workout. right now i allow myself about 20 mins between getting up and out the door. so lets see..up at 4..ride the bike, hobble to the shower, go to work already tired from the workout, work till 3:30, come home, work in the bakery till 8 or 9, then go for a 2 mile walk. Then not be ABLE to walk..yeah. sounds good. hope he is willing to come do it with me..OH and on horse show days?
Yup. i can do that..yeah..i can.

    Holly don't worry...we Sparkers know how much you already do and don't do (drinking soda? is he out of his mind? Do people think everyone who is overweight drinks gallons of soda every day and sits on their butts? That really ticks me off cuz I know how hard my Spark friends work out and eat intelligently. What about all the skinny people who eat 4000 calories a day of junk and haven't worked up a sweat in years? I work with a few of those. It is maddening! Keep your chin up amiga. You are terrific!

    Ugh, I don't have any idea how you're going to fit MORE exercise into your life if you're working two jobs. But I agree with Alison, if you are doing a lot of walking at work, get a pedometer and log it! :)

    Holly, hmmmmmmmmm well how many men were there ? LMAO The dr in the hospital is an idiot ! He has no idea of your schedule at all obviously ! What a maroon (courtesy of bugs bunny lol) seriously though he's very ignorant of your life and what you do.

Okay so maybe you can fit a bike ride in now and then and the walking you do at school is probably a good one, I'd get a good pedometer and measure it by that, if you want to find out that is. But with your knee I wouldn't push it either.

You have obstacles but you can do sit and be fit workouts, time allowed of course. I still do them when my back and knees flare up.

Anyway I hope your dr this morning doesn't come down on you to hard and if the dr does I'd inform the dr of your schedule then see what they come up with for a workout schedule for you. And as for soda ? Why doesn't a person just ask if you drink it before they feel they have the right to condem you or just assume (and we all know what that word means) that you drink it. I really hate that, assuming. My dr learned early on never to do that with me.

Message me when you can and let me know what happened k ? And no matter what my friend stay OP (on plan) you deserve it.
Hugs,
Alison

ok so yesterday i did finally get to the woodsmens meet. it was great to see old friends and yearn for the days that i was the one behind the ax and saw. It all came rushing back to me how much i loved that.
someone else beat me in the lake this year, although had i had something to change into it woulda been me. (and had ESPN not been there taping i would have just gone in in my underwear, but like i said on one of my teams, i can just see the announcer now saying "this is joe blow from ESPN live at Paul Smiths college with the qualifier for the Stihl Timbersports Challenge..we seem to have spotted a whale in the freshwater lake...." and then have the camera zoom in on me. Nope. not this year. so i stayed out. the water was only about 50 but i've been in far colder....
