So I’m on day 4 of doing Thrive. I do feel like I have a little more energy than I usually do, FWIW. Pain levels still the same, but unfortunately I’m used to pain.
And I’m on day 6 of using my Fitbit. So far, I’ve used a different wrist band every day. Finally got my first 5k steps badge yesterday, which is ironic because I spent a lot of the day in a car driving to and from the cardiologist. So I think that might not be completely accurate.
It’s also how shockingly little I move in the course of the average day. LOL But I am tracking all my food and trying to stay under my daily calorie count. What’s really good is the sleep tracking figure. I’m getting far less “good” sleep than I thought, which will be helpful next time I’m talking with my GP since my fibro is connected to sleep.
Speaking of the cardiologist, I have a new buddy for the next four weeks, dubbed Mico. (Because of course everything has to have a name. Shut up.) It’s a CardioNet MCOT, hence why I chose that nickname for it. It’s a heart monitor I pretty much wear all the time except in the shower. I can trigger it when I feel symptoms, so hopefully it will tell my doctor what’s going on and we can figure it out.
It’s a two-part thingy, the electrodes and a sensor gizmo I wear around my neck, and the base, which is a cellular unit (that I’ve already managed to drop several times, thank goodness it has a case) that I keep close by.
My body’s contrarian nature being true to form, I have yet to have any symptoms today, although yesterday I had a couple I could trigger the monitor for.
And yesterday, if you missed it, I had a new release. I’ve got new covers posted for Drunk Monkeys 7 & 8, too. (Woot!)
Sidenote: I keep getting asked about Sunday’s The Walking Dead. Yes, I believe the character is dead, because I read the books and have honestly been expecting that death to happen for…a while. (I thought they’d bite it in Terminus, actually.)
