Long time, no blog...

I haven't blogged since before the holidays. Life has had more downs than ups lately & I hate being a Debbie Downer. Today would have been my dad's 94th birthday. He passed in 1975 from heart disease. He just sat down outside at work, fell over and he was gone. Just like that my wonderful daddy was no more. I was 18 years old then and I'm sure that affected my life in more ways than I can imagine.
Knowing the strong history of heart disease on my dad's side of the family should have made me more aware of my health/ weight situation. But the old " it can't happen to me syndrome " I adopted is something I'm now just trying to break. On February 28th this year, I ended up in the hospital because of a racing, slowing, pounding heart
. After 24 very scary hours and the million dollar heart work up I was told my heart is in good shape. What a relief! While I was in the C-scan machine I was praying like I never had before.
I never want to experience that again. The drs said it could have been an anxiety attack. Maybe... Now I'm going to get my butt moving, start to track my food again and really get back on track for my health. Because as much as I miss my dad, I don't want to meet up with him again too soon. I'm sure he'll understand that.
