Yesterday was a short post because I was mad at my son for being rude but wanted to post something like I do every day.
I worked both jobs yesterday and they were normal which is good. I studied anatomy for 2 hours and math for an hour and a half. I watched Big Brother from Thursday night and WOW!!! That was screwed up! I won’t tell you but it was crazy. I played games on my phone and was in bed by 10.
I was up at 6am this morning. I guess getting up early is just my thing now. Whatever. I played on my phone for a while and wasn’t ready to get moving for a couple of hours. I walked the dog and then decided, after 2 friends on Instagram said I should, went for a walk. Thanks Jim!
When I was walking home, I started to feel faint and dizzy. I walked another 3/10ths of a mile and finally had to stop. I was still a good 10-15 minute walk from being home. My heart rate was 180!!! I sat down on a sidewalk, stretched for 10 minutes, and got up to continue my walk home. I walked back to the corner to cross the street and felt dizzy again. I walked back to my seat and called Lyft. This nice man drove me home and offered me water. I told him since I was going home that I would be okay but thank you. Very nice guy!
So I’m back home, have drunk 4 bottles of water, and I’m feeling much better. I am tired and I’m not going back outside for a while, but I’m fine. I forgot to take water with me and I probably shouldn’t have tried to do my 5K my first time getting back out there for exercise. Oh well. Live and learn. Know your limits and know when to stop 🛑 !!!
My son has therapy today and that’s all we have going on. I will study some math, read my biology book 📖, and relax.
Do you know when to stop and relax? Do you try to keep going when you know you should stop? Are you getting your exercise in?
