I'm Still Alive and Kickin'

Well, I did finally get motivated enough to work out even though I was terrified I'd get my heart to hurting again ... and I'm okay. I chose a workout that I had been doing a lot of before I started this med, something that had starting becoming almost easy before ... and it wasn't easy today.

I could feel my heart beating, I was breathing harder, sooner than usual. And I wanted to quit about halfway through. I could feel the difference in my ability, both from the effects of this medication and from the week-and-a-half I've spent on my rear. But I'm glad I tried again, it reassured me that if I just take it easy, I can work out without killing myself.

Can't wait till tomorrow, I'm looking forward to getting back to my Pilates.
