Well, it’s now afternoon here in San Diego and I have put off my Monday Mamavation post long enough. I didn’t even do one last Monday (hangs head in shame!) I started thinking of so many excuses as to why I haven’t posted, why I haven’t been eating well…but they were just that, EXCUSES. I do have a reason for not exercising but that is the only thing I can’t really control right now. The eating and posting I have full control over. I’ve just been avoiding it and avoiding the topic.
So, what does that mean for my weight loss? It means, there has been no weight lost. None. Zilch. Nada. Big FAT Zero! In fact, I have gained. Over the last month or so, I have been having an increase in my heart palpitations and feeling crummy all the time. I finally got into the doctor’s office (not for lack of trying on my part!) and they did an EKG. Since it was only on me for all of 30 seconds & the heart palpitations vary throughout the day, it showed nothing. The doctor suggested I get a Event Monitor and little did I know I would have to wear it 24/7 for 30 days! Fun times indeed! However, I’ve been really glad to wear it for that amount of time (it’s 5 days so far) because for the first 48 hours, I had very little activity. After 72 hours, I started having some dizzy spells, chest pains & more heart palpitations. I was actually HAPPY with getting them because I was able to record them and I am so hoping they show up and my doctors can figure out what is going on. I’m only 35, so while I feel ancient most days, I’m too young to be thinking about all this stuff, right?
Thank you to all my Mamavation Sistas! I haven’t been a support the last couple weeks & I also plan on changing that this week! If you stopped by from the “Mamavation Monday Blogging Carnival” post, please leave your blog post link & I will stop by & offer you my support as well
