Feeling much better

Friday, February 01, 2013

Not exactly sure what was making me feel bad, but I feel much better now. I did my 90 minute walk, and went to volunteer at the soup kitchen. I worked pretty hard, and at the end, realized I was feeling a lot better. I had everything set for going to the hospital, My cards, and list of meds in an envelope.

I wonder if my heart rate being low could cause those symptoms. When I usually go in, it is in the 40's. They have cut my meds in half already, but I am losing steadily. I may call my doctor and ask. Every other time I end up in hospital, I know why. I ate poorly...lol.

I was having a little blood in my runny nose at the kitchen, so I stopped at the pizzeria, and had my brother buy me a salad. I got a chef, and removed the ham, cut up my 2 chicken thighs, and added it. So I have a cup of romaine, 2 ozs of cheddar, 1/2 cup onions, 1/2 a tomato, 1 oz of sliced black olives, and 3 ozs creamy greek dressing, with 2 chicken thighs. Works out to an 800 calorie salad. For Lunch I just ate 4 chicken thighs, because I was too lazy to wash dishes..lol. Later I have 1/4 cup of macadamia nuts for a snack.

I cut back to 19 NET carbs for the day. Total of 2,327 calories. Hopefully, it just continues to improve. My muscles ache a bit, but that is normal after I am short of breath. My plan for the rest of the day is watching the Pistons game, and going to bed.

    A heart rate in the 40's? Wow. I've heard that a lower pulse is an indication of a healthier heart, but that seems really, really low. I'm sure you've learned enough about your own heart to know what's going on, though. I'm glad you're feeling better.

The salad sounds wonderful.

    Glad you're feeling better! Your salad sounds great. I splurged on a big fat angus cheeseburger for lunch. No bun of course, but I did have the pickle and tomato. Om nom nom. Felt like Suzanne for a minute.
