Would like to make a few comments concerning my wife Melissia (yes, there is an extra i). My last blog was a change for me. I let myself openly describe her or something she did in a negative light. This wasn't meant to bash her, but more to tell a story. The way things have been lately let me turn my filters off. Wed night was going to be talk night. That happened on Friday daytime. Nothing was truly resolved, but info, opinions, and feelings were shared. Will talk more on Tuesday night. After 17 years, there's no rushing things anymore. I know I have let things slip before ,but please don't believe I'm the kind of person that trashes on his wife, or that she is a rotten person. It is/was a rough time we're working on.
That little blood pressure mishap had more effects than I thought. Why it happened- I was really putting exercise pressure on my body, (Monday was Huge), cleaned and cooked all Tuesday, then hit Wednesday hard. Forgot to factor in the lack of drinking which was about 3000 not tracked calories a week. Add that with my regular shorting of calories and you get 5 pounds of weight loss in ten days. That is way too much when I'm already in the healthy range and burning 1100 to 1300 calories per exercise session. Then I did something really stupid. I missed my minimum calorie range by over 1000 for Sun/Mon/Tue. Tue being down 600 alone, drinking lots of coffee, not much water, and cleaning house all day. Started Wed way in the hole. Then skipped lunch to take son for doctor check up. Felt bad earlier and took BP on one of those store machines. 78/51. Hour later my wife (nurse) took it at sons Doctor's office. 78/48 and feeling very very slow/dizzy/headache. Drove home, finally ate, took kids to wife, and me to ER. BP was still in the tank and pulse was sitting around 42. Not Good. Waited too long. Was tired and muscle/head pain all Thursday with a very hard day at work. Tired with no body pains but poor vision Friday with a 53 top party. Saturday finally felt good, but eyesight was still a little fuzzy. Exercised today 10 min walking, 10 min rowing machine, 5 min walking. WOW- I think I was honestly set back a month. Fed myself anything I felt like over weekend, will start back gentle today.
Found out- don't do too much at once. ((Gabby- yes, I told me so)) Jan= not drinking. So I'll make Feb my fitness month. Will take next three days to line everything up.
This is long gone. Believe it had some influence on health bump, but don't know to what degree. Will need some studying to figure that out. The addiction wasn't like I figured. It was nothing like portrayed on TV and movies. Yes, I had withdrawals like headaches and insomnia, but no shakes/outbursts/anger/mood swings. Looking back- mine was just as much a night time habit as it was a dependency. Either that, or I had the easiest mental transition ever.
EVERYONE HERE WAS A HUGE PART IN THIS!! I used my promise to you, and your thinking of me as a reason to not cheat my plan. THANK YOU!!!!
That's my communication for now. Will use the next few days to get myself lined up for February. Have a wonderful Monday and end of the month. Next blog might not be for a while, until the Spark On My Splendid Friends!!
