Yes x3. YouTube kickboxing video. And a brisk walk in the cold. Because when it’s -47, you gotta get out and experience that, right?? @jamcnewman I’m a regina gal too. Next weeks balmy forecast is hard to believe but it will be so nice to get outdoors again!

Inspiring post @WhatMeRunning!!
WHY WE DO THIS
So, I’ve been having some wonky symptoms. Breathing harder on a steep hill, some pressure in chest, not running up the stairs as usual. Elevated heart rate for simple walk.
I didn’t really notice because I walk hike every day. I have low bp, I lost 70 lbs I kept it off. I eat ridiculously healthily.
Concerning echo stress test results in the ER. My low bp went skyrocketing while I walked & jogged on their treadmill.
And yesterday a CT scan of my arteries at the ER again due to actual chest pain &
Jaw pain. (Good news at end of post)
Well, as I waited for the results on both days of tests, all I could think was: “You have done EVERYTHING you can.” Must be genetic. Forgave and let go myself for not having been healthier. I honestly did the best I could without tracking apps & UAC & new techniques re: habit changes (NOOM).
And then the results came in. The nicest sweetest resident Dylan looked 22 came in
“I have good news. No, GREAT news you have minimal occlusion.” We both teared up. “Really really good news. You have a lot (spreading his arms wide) more room for heart disease in future.” Haha He put his hands together & bowed. I thanked him profusely clasping my hands to my head, incredulous.
I had done a good job of keeping calm, but I’ve dodged a huge bullet here after ~ 25+ years of unhealthy eating out.
I have read exercise & healthier eating can reverse this somewhat…who knows?
But I am SO GRATEFUL
PS cardiologist is working on the serious runs of VT’s & the possible exercise-induced hypertension. Will take some time
And I still have heartburn like feeling in throat & chest - will explore lungs? GERD? I eat such bland foods…with my PCP tomorrow
Here’s the clincher: if I hadn’t walked up hills & every day, if I’d been my sedentary past self, I would never have known all this was happening.
Exercise may have saved my life. (The VT’s)
As Nike says: “Just DO it!”
My favorite mantra “It’s not if I’ll exercise today, it’s WHEN”
Pls learn from my Mistakes.
If you have any thoughts/experience what might be going on, I’d love to hear.

Stayed under got my protein numbers again today hoping this habit sticks. 2.2 miles of spin a little flexibility. Tracked and stayed under.
Any special plans for anyone this weekend? I am hoping to finish Game of Thrones #2 then on to #3. Of course some 🏈 😊maybe a short winter walk in the woods before next weeks frigid cold hits. I guess I should proof read before hitting the post button or at least put my glasses on 😂

@Winner_in_Life I am sure it's difficult to find happiness or satisfaction in many things right now. You are doing so well, keep on doing whatever you can. I think only a rare few have the inner strength and courage to do much at all just yet. You are on the correct path. I am sure your husband would be so proud of you. God bless!

Madisonmolly... such good news.. and great follow through on your part in so many ways...
Yes x's 3 today
Chopped and pan sauteed tons of veggies today. Did higher intensity workout...slow buildup... lost about 16 lbs in the past month... have a goal to keep pushing. My son opted to exercise during commercials with me yday, and did some workout on his own today. My Mom who is mid 70's just rejoined her gym... mourning my Dad has been very hard on her emotionally and physically... So, hoping my little pod of humans can keep encouraging each other to make healthy a family theme.
