Whoops

I did not, as I had promised, go to Curves last night.

The major reason is this: it's my heart. Lately it's been all fluttery and pound-y, causing me to cough and wheeze because I can't catch my breath. Walking up and down the stairs to the basement and back wears me out.

I'm going to the doctor on Monday.

See, despite what I may say, I'm not some morbidly obese person. I'm within the range for my height and age, I just don't happen to like being at the high end of that range. But I'm not some lard ass that never moves. And I don't smoke anymore.

And heart problems are quite common in my family, especially on my dad's side. My dead father...who died of heart failure.

So you can see where I'd be a little concerned.

Like I said, I'll see my doc on Monday and see what she thinks we should do.

Well, let us know the results.

And, yeah, you probably should check that out before you work out. Curves may appear easy, but it is quite the work-out for your heart.

Oh geez. Yes, definitely skip Curves till you get examined by the doctor.

Take care of yourself Groovy! I got that same fluttery-skippy, cough inducing heart beat from some medication I was on. The same heart issues on my dad's side (oh, and stroke there, too) and on my mom's side heart disease and cancer...lovely, lovely!
