See, my family history is what alarmed both the ER doc and the cardiologist so much. I thought the cardio office visit would result in a stress test, but when I got there he basically said, “There’s no way I’m risking that, you’re a textbook case of unstable angina, you’re going to the hospital right now.”
One of my best friends came over today, we went out to eat for lunch at Chipotle, so I got a burrito bowl with a very thin layer of brown rice, black beans, chicken, and just a little shredded cheese on top, with water. A week ago that would’ve been a mound of white rice, per my request, with black beans, steak, a lot of shredded cheese, and chips with a cup of queso sauce washed down with a diet coke. MyFitnessPal estimated the bowl to be around 450 calories, but that’s OK since my breakfast was two eggs, scrambled, with a Yoplait light blueberry yogart and my afternoon meal was a Muscle Milk protein drink (160 cal). So far that puts me at 67g of carbs, 34g for fat, and 83g for protein. We’re eating dinner here soon, baked pork chops with steamed broccoli, so I’ll need two more meals to push me closer to 1800 calories for the day.
After lunch my friend and I played the Game of Thrones LCG card game using the new intro faction decks (I sold my card pool last year once I decided to get into the tabletop miniatures game by CMON) and I absolutely crushed his Lannisters with my Martells. Very relaxing, sometimes it’s just the small things in life. . .such as routing Cersei from the battlefield. My wife and I also just got back from a 2-mile walk, which really helped the headaches the Imdur is causing me. Just so nice getting away from work and de-stressing, anyone who is friends with me on FB sees what I’ve been posting over the last few months (a co-worker I share an office and duties with had a nervous breakdown a few months ago).
