I¡¦ve lost 4 pounds. My energy level is higher despite the lack of sleep. My blood pressure is lower (110/70). I had a stress echo today which went swimmingly. My heart only skipped once! The tech wanted my heart rate up to 165 (OMG!) and we got it up to 170 before I told her I couldn¡¦t hold it anymore. My legs were going to give out on me! I recovered well and felt great the rest of the day!
My lunch shake today was better. I used the same amount of celery but peeled all of the cucumber and made sure all of those greens were good and liquidy before I added other ingredients. I used a straw and just gulped it down. º It was ok.
I had the breakfast shake again for snack¡K I LOVE that one! And dinner was delicious as well. I also let myself have a little Velveeta Shells & Cheese as that is what I fixed for Lilli for dinner and I felt WAY deprived.
I'm looking forward to the bath again tonight. I'll remember my reading material this time so that I won't be so eager to get out right away!
Unfortunately I still only lasted 25 minutes. It's recommended to soak for 30 but I just get too hot. I'm now nauseous and my heart is racing. Gonna drink some Chamomile tea so I will hopefully get a better night's sleep tonight! Tomorrow will be better yet! I'm excited to keep my healthy lifestyle going! I hope it fixes my heart for good! Had a rough time falling asleep after all. It seems I had a hard time relaxing. No bath tomorrow night... or maybe just a cooler one.
