So, my cardiologist cleared me to start working on getting my stamina and endurance back. My mobility has taken a huge hit from the beta blocker I have to take now. Right now, I can walk out to the end of my driveway and get the mail out of the mailbox, and then walk back into the house. But that's my limit. Just that short walk leaves me short of breath and feeling like my heart is pounding hard, and it takes a lot of time to recover.

I'm supposed to get up and walk around the house for a few minutes every hour or so, then "mark" the event on my heart monitor. That way they can make sure I'm safely exerting myself. And try to walk just a little bit farther each day.

He expects me to get my endurance up to 2500 steps a day by mid January. So far today I've only done 190. I'll probably hit 300 by bedtime. But I have a lot of progress to make before my next appointment.

619 steps so far, I'll make it to 700 by bedtime.

So, for Christmas, my husband ordered me a Bellabeat Leaf wearable activity tracker. It's more of a wellness tracker than a fitness tracker. It'll have a pedometer but also has stress relief promoting functions, which makes it perfect for my needs. Plus it looks like jewelry, not a piece of wearable tech. I should get it by the beginning of January at the latest. I'll definitely post my review of it.

Walked to and from the market, 1.6 mile round trip, in 31 minutes, a trip that should take longer.

1344 steps so far, and I should reach 1500 by bedtime. Now that it's finally cool here, I can walk around outside without getting lightheaded.

1883 steps yesterday. But it was a very busy day, I was out from 7 am until 10 pm. I completely overdid it and was in a world of hurt by the time I crawled into bed last night. Today I'll be surprised if I get a third as many steps in.

And I want the warmer weather for more walking again!

2796 steps, or 1.2 miles walked today. Goal achieved, now to get to where I'm consistently reaching it by my cardiologist appointment at the end of January.
