WUB Weekly update, heart arrhythmia update and weight loss finally!

Saturday, October 20, 2012

This week has been great for my weight loss. The scale moved!!! I stopped the dreaded heart meds (with the advice of my cardio doc) and I am losing again. The meds were not helping so why take them? He agreed! They made me so tired and sluggish. My resting heart rate was 40 on them! Yes 40, I am now back to around 60-70. I have not taken it while resting for a while yet.

I have a medical procedure called ablation scheduled for Nov 8th. They hopefully will be able to remove the problem in my heart and make me better. If I do not get the problem fixed I run the risk of my heart becoming weak and damaged. So far I have no damage.

I am on track with my goals for this week... Here is my update emoticon

My goals for October
1. Exercise Daily but don’t focus on killing it every day (I was over training) ---DONE

2. Lose some weight (I don’t have a specific number just something) ---DONE

3. Stay in my calorie range ---DONE!!!

4. Exercise 6 days a week and stay active on day 7 ---DONE

5. Practice Positive Affirmations . --Done ....I need to do this more this week

6 Clean my piles of clothing and donate large items. ---Still not even started. I washed the clothes though.

I wish everyone a great week!!
