Travel to Manila again

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

I did get my doctors appointment. Went to Manila on Sunday, saw the doc Monday and returned to Cebu Monday evening. So I only ate less than healthy foods for 2 days this time. I did practice portion control, but gave myself a grade of D+ for the effort.
I did my normal weigh in when I got there. My previous weight was 327, this time 292. Yah Hoo!!
It is a good thing I am finally trying to get healthy. It appears my body is wearing out. Besides having the angina attack a few weeks ago, I have been feeling skipped beats when I check my heart rate. I assumed they were from PVCs (premature ventricular contractions). I was right. Were able to catch some on my EKG. Today while walking in the pool I had them again. Had several double beet skips, called bigeminy, which is not a good thing. I sure hope I am getting healthy for more than being a good looking corpse. And even if that happens, I'll be a happy corpse.

    My friend who is 72 had a heart attack in May of this year. She was left with 35% of her heart yet went home after a stint was put in in less than two weeks. She is good to go for half a day but is working on building up her heart again. So do not count yourself totally out yet.
