Well darnit...we have a minor setback. During my cardio rehab, my blood pressure is 150/100. Not good! We have doubled my blood pressure medicine but it'll take a couple of weeks to see results. So that means I cannot return to work the last week of July. I want to return to work. My sanity is slipping away! I had an echo cardiogram test last Tuesday. I have discussed the results with my doctor yet. However, I can view them online so I peeked. I researched the results and learned a few things. Answered a few questions I had and what was causing them. The big answer was why my heart felt like it was going to jerk out of my chest. I learned that was a mitral valve regurgitation caused by...you guessed it, high blood pressure. I haven't had one in two days so I'm praying the increased meds are starting to work.
In other news...I signed up to a gym. I realize I can't use it just yet. I wanted to sign-up now to help boost my confidence and set a goal. $10 a month and it's open 24/7. Not alot of weights but I can work with what they have. Plenty of treadmills, stair steppers, bicycles, etc... I've also lost 2 lbs in a week. Only 36 more to go! That 36 will take me a year. I'm not planning on dumping it all at once.
And btw, the cardio rehab kicks my ass!
