CHF Recovery: Day 13

It’s September 26, day 13 since I started trying to eat less sodium and take walks every day. I haven’t managed every single day but I’ve done a lot of walking. I haven’t walked yet today because I had a doctor’s appointment at 10:30; I will go a little later, I think.

My period is over; it ended yesterday and I am very relieved.

  • Got up, showered, and dressed in normal clothes
  • Had protein shake and morning meds
  • Went to the doctor

The doctor visit was just to catch my PCP up on all the Happeningsā„¢. And also one little tiny kinda gross thing that doesn’t need to be mentioned. It went fine and I am home again.

  • Ate half the salad I bought last night, so as to not destroy my sodium count for the day
  • Read stuff online until Sean got home
  • Cooked a dinner of grilled chicken, boiled peas, and mashed potatoes, all with no salt
  • Ate dinner and took meds
  • Purposefully avoided watching the presidential debate
  • Went to bed around 11:30pm

I did not go on my walk. I thought I’d go after I cooked dinner, but in retrospect that plan made no sense.
