Two steps forward, 1 step back...but let's keep going

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

It seems like I get going again and then WHAM! Something happens to set me back a little. I've been sticking with my workout plan and adding a little more with each accomplishment. With a-fib, your heart starts racing more than normal for no reason at times and also may beat irregular. Yesterday morning, I woke up with an a-fib attack. Not the worse one I've ever had, but it prevented me from exercising as planned. Just a few weeks ago, I got the all clear from my cardiologist to do what ever exercises I wanted to do because there was nothing else wrong with my. I passed my stress test with flying colors. I don't have any other issues as far as my heart goes. It's very frustrating!! One thing...after an a-fib attack it feels like I ran 10 miles! I'm exhausted!! Today I feel much better and am back at it!! Have a great day, everyone! emoticon

    Glad to hear you are feeling better today. I know how frustrating it can be in general when a workout is planned and it does not happen. But from I read about Afib, it sure sounds like you did the right thing.

Take care!

  Take things slow and easy. Find a comfort zone for your heart rate and stick with it even if "the book" says its too low. I bought a heart rate monitor (one with the chest band) and it helps me stay in a target range. a-fib can be a pain in the southern hemisphere but we can learn to live with it.
