well I just got back from my stress test today....Oh where do I start? I was super nervous, just because I've never had one..didn't really know what I was in for....but after meeting the nurse, who was awesome...and found out she knew my doctor..had worked with him..so that was cool......so this morning I made sure the girls(boobs) were securely tucked behind two sport bras......they're large...and can get out of control...if not tucked away..when you get on the treadmill....but to my surprise, when I got there they told me to remove everything (yep..bye,bye sport bras) from the waist up...and then they handed me a newborn baby hospital gown...it looked like a half top mini vest...cause it had to open in the front....Okay so it wasn't a newborn size..but it was small..but she got me a bigger one...thank goodness...so now I am realizing that they want me to do the treadmill bra-less....yikes!!! Okay what ever...so they get me hooked up to everything...and start me up...piece of cake...but because my heart is used to working out...she wasn't getting up enough....so the upped my incline....and the speed...okay..good...then again..okay now my very short legs...are in full stride...but the heart beat is still not high enough...ughhh!!! so she said something about getting ready to run!! What?? wait?? RUN?? I don't run!!! so I told her I've never run on the treadmill...she said we need to go there to get your heartbeat up....oh dear Lord!!!! so before I know it the incline...is basically facing the ceiling....and the speed goes crazy!!! I tried to fast walk it..and then without even telling my short legs...they started running...shoot they had no choice!!! so I actually ran for about 30 seconds...Oh yeah...wait..don't forget about the bra-less...yep...take a second and get a picture!! I know.....that's just wrong...but finally I said....I can't!! it seriously felt like if I could just lift my legs up and hold on....I would start flying like superman...I knew it wasn't going to end well....when after I told her that I can't....she said ...Okay just one second.....NOPE!! no second!! plop!! I was down......I'm sure it was a graceful fall...'cause it didn't hurt !!! besides my ego...but I am sure that the fall helped my heartbeat...go even faster!! so they basically scooped me, put me on the table...and tried to capture my higher heart beat!!! I just kept sitting there thinking... Who just fell off the treadmill?? Oh my gosh...I did!!! I've always had a fear of falling off....but always pictured it happening at the gym.....so then the nurse tells me that I am only the 2nd person to fall off the treadmill in the 19 years she's being doing this....did she think this was going to make me feel better?? nope...made me feel worse...was hoping that this kinda thing happens all the time....and the other person was somebody that had a heart problem...she said i was the first just to go down?? geez...thanks!! but I was fine..she felt bad...offered to take me to their emergency room....no..thanks..I've got a little skid mark on my hand...and sore leg...but I don't know if that's from the fall...or the fact that they made me RUN!! the good new is she said I did the same as a 25 year old....so the gym is paying off...and my blood pressure was awesome....it was also very cool to see my heart on the ultrasound machine thing....it's weird to see it beating.....such a small thing keeping us going....so hoping I don't have to do the stress test...for awhile..but because I already work out...they said it would take more to get my heartbeat up...'cause I guess your body get used to the exercise...just thought i would share my lil' adventure of the day....I scrapped a page last night...just went through my lil' embellishment box...as you can tell just using a little bit of this and that...and nothing like kraft paper...kraft paper is magical!! Oh well nothing much going on..gotta babysit some tacketts tonight...but I think only one...and pick up my girl scout cookies...and then figure out what to do with those cookies besides eat them!!
