Having a great week this week. I feel like I'm catching up with obligations and I feel like I have more energy. Last week I went back to the doctor- again. I had been having a lot of dizzy spells again. Turns out my blood pressure is still low and they cannot lower my dosage any further on this particular medication. The doctor said we should do a trial of taking me off the medicine cold turkey for a month and monitor my blood pressure every day- go back in a month and discuss the results. I have been off of the medicine for a week now and I can already tell such a difference. The dizziness has stopped again and I think I"m not feeling as tired. I really don't want to go back to the blood pressure medicine, so my exercise regimen has become really strict now. I excercise for at least 30-50 minutes each day for sure now. Sometimes this is a walk, sometimes it's on the eliptical, but sometimes if I'm short on time it's just "power- housecleaning". I'm hoping with keeping my salt intake down, staying away from fast food and exercise that when I go back to see my doc he'll say all is good. Still no stepping on the scale,but the clothes are fitting loose still so I'm not worried. Last night I picked a bucket full of peas out of the garden and a large bundle of lettuce- so I'll be eating healthy this weekend! Happy 4th of July weekend to my American friends- and have a wonderful weekend to all!!
