So I’m on day 4 of doing a new supplement. 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 bad 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. This heart monitor is practical with me around the clock, except when I’m in the shower. Interestingly, I have the ability to trigger it when I experience symptoms. So, hopefully, the data it collects will provide valuable insights for my doctor, aiding in our collaborative efforts to decipher what’s happening. It’s another example of how technology like this when coupled with the expertise of health advisors like Dokter Fit, can play a pivotal role in understanding and managing health concerns.
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.)
