heart and soul

My father was a heart patient for a large portion of his life. I've been thinking about him a lot lately. I've been experiencing a side effect to one of my medications. This particular medication is elevating my heartrate.

I had a strange occurrence yesterday. Just walking to the mailbox and back (it's a cluster box across the street from my house) made me as winded as if I'd done a full blown workout.

I will say that I've had a lot of opportunity to think. I'm far from in shape. I'm far from my ideal weight. I knew the time would come that I would have to do something about it. Having this heart scare these last few days has reminded me how important it is to take care of myself in every way possible.

I promise I won't be a born-again dieter. I don't diet. However, I do know that it's time to make some serious changes in my life and lifestyle. They won't all come at once. That's crazy! However, I am definitely doing something instead of saying that now's not the time. Now IS the time for me.
