#FitReaders Check-In

  • This check-in is for April 30th – May 6th.
  • I got bad news on Tuesday.  My heart condition is serious and will require another appointment with a cardiologist and probably more tests.  They need to figure out the cause to know how to treat it.
  • My little exercise bike arrived on Monday, and I’ve got it set up.  So far, I’ve only tried it out to make sure it works properly, but I will start using it either today (after my workout session) or tomorrow while I’m sitting around.

#FitReaders Check-In

  • This check-in is for April 16th – 22nd.
  • My Doctor got me set up with a weight management program before discovering my heart condition, but I went ahead with the first appointment and discussed my concerns with my “coach.”  I can go for walks and I can certainly work on my eating habits, so I don’t see this as a waste of time.
  • One of the things I’m working on is getting more vegetables.  I’m only tracking how many times I eat a veggie right now (along with how many times and for how long I go for a walk), but just the tracking is making me decide to choose veggies over other foods.

#FitReaders Check-In

  • This check-in is for April 9th – 15th.
  • Last week, I didn’t say why I was having more doctor’s appointments and tests done. It’s my heart, and it’s not something that can be fixed with diet and exercise, though I am taking steps to reduce any strain on my heart at least until I know what needs to be done.
  • I also quit my job so that I can deal with the appointments without having to worry about requesting the time off, and also so I can spend more time with my family.  The job I had required me to work pretty much every weekend and some evenings, and my days off never matched up with my boyfriend’s.

#FitReaders Check-In

  • This check-in is for April 2nd – 8th.
  • What was supposed to be one of the last Doctor’s appointments I had resulted in a need for more tests.  I also started a new job this week, and now have to spend the majority of my time off at those appointments, assuming my scheduling requests get accepted.  I’m grateful for the medical care, but I am so tired of there being something wrong with me and not knowing exactly what it is.

#FitReaders Check-In

  • This check-in is for March 12th – 18th.
  • Doctor’s appointments, phone interviews for jobs I applied for, and house hunting meant that I completely forgot about posting this yesterday.
  • My labs came back, and my cholesterol is a little too high, so I’m focusing on cleaning up my diet and getting more exercise in general.

#FitReaders Check-In

  • This check-in is for March 5th – 11th.
  • I’ve had quite a few Doctor’s appointments since meeting my new Primary Care.  She’s wonderful and is trying to get everything taken care of that hasn’t been done since before the pandemic started.  I’ve got more appointments coming up over the next couple of months.
  • Now that I’m more settled into my new home and getting back into my morning and evening routines, I’m back to eating healthier and I’m sleeping better.  Now I just have to work on the exercise part of the equation.
