ever have a random heart palpatation?
Just for a few seconds, you can't breath quite right... you can FEEL the offness of it in your chest... you feel groggy and weak.
I know they must not be healthy, and I don't get them often at all... this was the first in probably 6 months of so... But they always serve to freak me out A LOT.

They're just so quick though that it's easy to dismiss it as your imagination.
I dunno.

I'm exceedingly groggy this morning.

There has to be a less physcially exerting way to stretch.
And to blow my nose.

And to... be awake.

I've now gone in the opposite direction from my usual food thing. Instead of never eating, all I do now is eat.
I'm not gaining any weight. I eat something before work, again around 10, again around 1, again around 3, and then again around 7 or so. No, they aren't full meals or anything. It's a piece of fruit here, some crackers there... but I'm always eating.
And there's a part of my brain just screaming at me that NOOOO I have to stop.
But I won't. Becuase I just feel better.

My hands/wrists are still killing me muscle-wise from yesterday.
My skin isn't doing too hot either, given the slicing and general abuse.

Bah, whiney me.

Grazing throughout is healthier than eating 3 squares a day.

I eat 5 meals a day and also feel better for it.

i have had the heart situation since i was about 25 years old. what ultimately happened was that my heart started going berserk one day - like a out-of-control, fluttery feeling - and so i decided to get checked out to make sure i wasn't having a heart attack. in the end, it was discovered that i had a mild mitral valve prolapse, and not to worry. for years i had to pre-medicate before surgery or dental work, but now, they don't make me do that anymore. i still have the fluttery heart, but i know what it is and so i don't fret.

you might want to have a doctor give your ticker a listen just to make sure. many, many people have prolapses - especially women - and while it generally is no cause for alarm, it is a good thing to know about in case you do require antibiotics prior to surgery/dental work.

and yes, i know you already have a mom, you don't need me to act like one, too ;-)

I definitely feel better when I to what you're describing there. My freakish metabolism actually comes close to functioning normally when I do the several-small-meals thing, and it helps with weight as well. Doesn't give your body long enough to go into "ah, we're starving, I better store some fat" mode, and I know in my case, that's a good thing.

Hell, I'm just glad you're eating. See, we can go to the Vienna Inn for *one* chili dog, then to Carlos O'Kelly's for *one* taco, then to Evening Star to split some gumbo, and then... :)

I uh .. I kinda liked it.

Of course, I dig grungy/neat/odd/little places like that.

Can't wait til they rebuild it.

I screwed up the eating thing today, actually.
I had something this morning, but never actually took a break today.
Not a fifteen, not a lunch break. When it looked like I wouldn't get the opportunity for one, I decided I'd just leave half an hour early, but endedup staying *late* anyway.

That, in addition to all the other days I've stayed late and skipped an off the clock lunch break (not skipped eating, just the 'off the clock' part. heh) means I'll definitely be going home early tomorrow.
I'm hoping I can get out by noon... but that might just be wishful thinking on my part.

But the food thing doesn't work that way for those restaurants, hun.
You *have* to get two overloaded chili dogs at vienna in. you *have* to get two tacos and lots of salsa and chips are carlos o'kelly's.
You *have* to have gumbo, the bread with the dippy stuff, the steak with the redskin mashed potatoes (hold the cheese) and onions at evening star.

hehe.. although that *would* be fun to try someday. ::grin::

But yeah... I didn't eat anything other than a lil bowl of oatmeal stuff until I got home.
Got the shakes and extreme confusion to prove it.

Hehe... the food thing doesn't work that way for those restaurants, hun.
I mean, I thought it was a law or something that you *had* to get two chili dogs, you *had* to have two tacos, you *had* to have the gumbo and the bread and the dippy stuff and the steak..

hehe.. although that *would* be fun to try someday. ::grin::
