Day 343/ Sinus Tach
Thursday, December 10, 2015
I saw the NP (Nurse Practitioner) and she decided to do an EKG yesterday. My heart rate was 120, but my Fitbit showed 107... so my Fitbit is off by at least 10 bpm... yikes. The EKG showed sinus tachycardia, which isn't too serious on it's own but can be a symptom of other things. So, going to the cardiologist tomorrow to pick up a heart rate monitor and then get some labs done. Heart disease runs rampant through my family, so there is a bit more concern than usual on this. My father had his first heart attack and open heart surgery around my age. Yikes.
I'm also going to be getting a sleep study done soon. The NP gave me something to help me sleep, but it didn't get to the pharmacy till like 5 so I didn't get to use it last night. We will be picking it up today after my dentist appointment to get a broken tooth pulled.
Yes, I'm falling apart
My sleep was horrible last night, I woke up exhausted, so I'm going to work out after the dentist appt. I have a feeling that the tooth is abscessed so it won't be pulled today I'll just be put on strong antibiotics. I didn't get to work out yesterday, I was exhausted by the time I got home and a little shook up.
Every year we have Christmas dinner at my In-laws... and MIL picks a random theme dinner to have. One year was Mexican, another Italian, you get the idea. So the one year when I've decided I'm not going to splurge on anything and I'm going to pack my own dinner and not eat off of plan, she decided to do my favorite, a classic Christmas dinner. Most years I grump and groan over her choice and insist we have a classic meal here at home too. This year I'm just hoping I'm strong willed enough not to eat any of the goodies. The meat I will be fine on a s they are getting a ham and my system very much does not like pork products. I did finally talk to DH about my desire to eat well on Christmas and not go off plan. He's already planning to cook fish for me and a few side dishes I can have. He's so sweet.
Off to get ready for my day! I wish you all the best and have a wonderful Thursday!
