- I rejoined Weight Watchers to remove the extra 12 lbs I gained from lack of running. So far I have lost half of that weight and hope to reach my goal by the end of January 2009.
- No running...yet. (see below)
- I have been dealing with serious and irritating health issues involving my heart, which caused to hold off my running until I feel more confident that things are under control. I have been dealing with heart palpitation, which is not unfamiliar territory for me. I have dealt with it previously when I diagnosed almost 4 years ago. I have had to make a few trips to the ER in the middle of the night. I am being treated with medication for this, but not working too well. My cardiologist is really pushing for an ablation, but I will only consider it as a last resort. I am currently wearing an event monitor for 30 days right now and had an echocardiogram today. My doctor believes that I have Paroxysmal Supraventricular Tachycardia (PSVT), but will hopefully confirm it once the heart monitor results ad echo come back. So not running for me - just lots of walking - for now. I even go to the gym as long as I get out of work on time.
- We have been slammed with snow this past week. It has been a challenge to relearn my winter driving skills. I wish Spring would come soon.
