Health Scare in Week 7
Friday, October 30, 2015
As I was walking home from my daily walk last Sunday, I had terrible pressure in my chest and shortness of breath. I got terribly dizzy and light headed. I came home, got in the car, and went to the ER. My blood pressure was 178/100. I was admitted and had every test for heart problems, and all came back negative. I was released Monday afternoon, with a diagnosis of hypertension caused by stress. It was a wake-up call for me. I cannot be a good care-giver for my husband if I do not take care of myself and relax more.
Even though I had no exercise on Monday or Tuesday, I still had a successful week 7. I lost 2.6 pounds and 1/2 inch off of my waist. Bring on week 8 ... I'm ready for it!
