1st Day of Experiment: Definite Improvement!
Wednesday, June 18, 2014
Thank you to everyone for your wonderful support, suggestions and for being "with me" through my struggles!
I skipped my Ramipril last night and experienced a noticeable uptick in my energy today. Not running any races, but there was more focus, energy and ability to be more truly "with" others. My elliptical workout reflected progress as well. Not that it really ever suffered that badly. In 30 mins. I typically run around 425 calories supposedly burned...not that I believe the number, but I use it as a marker for how much oomph I put into my workout. I had dropped down to 380-390 but today bumped up to 411.
Last night I had one of those nights where I just could not get back to sleep when I awoke at 3:30 (the brain just would not stifle the chatter no matter how many slow, deep breaths I took...yeesh!)...so by all rights I should be severely dragging by now...but I'm not. I'm encouraged!
Stay tuned! Hoping for some energy to start pursuing various avenues the spirit has been willing to consider but up until now my body just wouldn't cooperate...!
