Update and Daily Tracking: May 13th, 2019

So today is kind of a weird one, so bear with me.

I had three doctor’s appointments today. Well, really it was the same appointment, but with a few extra tests thrown in there.

First, they did an ultrasound on my heart. Then they put me on a treadmill for a stress test. You’ve likely seen people do this on TV…

You are hooked up to an EKG, and they over the course of 10-15 minutes they increase the speed and incline of the treadmill until everything is pumping as hard as possible. This is quickly followed by a second ultrasound, which needs to be done within a minute of hopping off the treadmill to get an accurate reading.

I don’t do well at doctor’s appointments in general, so add in all these extra pokes and prods, and you can kind of get the idea as to why I wasn’t really looking forward to this. I had no appetite all morning and only ate something because I knew I had too.

But I did it and after all the tests were done, I sat down with my doctor, and he said everything looked great. He also praised the lifestyle changes I’ve been making and told me to keep up the good work.

I wish I could describe the weight that has been lifted off my shoulders. I have been dreading this day for a past month, and now it’s over and everything is fine. I just need to continue my tracking, continue exercising, and continue to get healthy. I’m not out of the woods by any means, but it’s good to hear that I’m on the right track and the changes I’m making are already taking effect.
