Highs Followed by Drama...DON'T HIT THE RED BUTTON!!!!

Thursday, October 24, 2013

My life should be a sitcom. I know a lot of people may say that, but my friends will be the first to tell you that the most dramatic things happen to me. I promise. LOL!

So last night, I received my official letter. I have been accepted into an MBA program at Alverno College where I received my undergrad. This has been 7 years in the making and one day...much like trying to get healthy, I decided to get up and just flippin' do it already.

Well this awesome news was overshadowed by the fact that my BF doesn't think things through and when he went to go bring in the groceries from my car, he left the gate open and my escape artist puppy ran FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.

Even though he is almost one...he is the most spazzy, timid, chicken butt dog I have ever seen. Oh, did I mention he doesn't come when called...EVER! We have taken puppy class, clicker training, personal coaching, doggy therapy. Nothing.

So there is my boyfriend, who is a large guy with joint issues, out chasing this dog over a 2 block radius. Weaving in and out houses. Cutting through yards. Playing hide and seek. Just as you thought you lost him...through the blackness two glowing eyes.

After 2 hours, we finally got him in the house. Drama.

So after all that...We get to bed and I am off this morning to do a stress test. I wasn't having chest PAIN, just chest FULLNESS. I guess either way, they wanted to make sure I was okay.

So I walking shoes, workout clothes, MP3. Ready to get a good walk in. What they don't tell you is they are going to put that sucker on an insane incline and crank it up. Now I can easily do 30 minutes on the treadmill at 1.8 - 2.2 and get a mile in. Uh Uh...I was holding on and I heart rate shot up in 30 seconds. I went from 99 to 180 in 1.5 minutes. Literally.

Apparently while I am gasping for air and cursing people in my legs were dragging a little. They thought I was going to fall...Which I wasn't, I was just tired. So they slammed the red button. I jerked, flew back and yelled at them all at the same time. my fit I screamed, "Never hit the red button. Do you NOT watch movies. NEVER HIT THE RED BUTTON!!!!"

Dramatic. HAHAHAHA. I look back now and think Good Lord....why are I so dramatic???

On the good news I have no blockage at all and my heart is wonderful. The bad, and obvious news, I need more cardio in my life.

Guess I should utilize my gym membership huh. :) emoticon

    Glad to hear your heart is good - that can be so scary. I'm trying to get cardio in before I get to that point because I can feel it coming.
