Fitbit struggles from a healthy junky

So my damn fitbit hasn’t synced since late August.  I’ve tried every suggested fix short of losing all of my data and still nothing.  The next step includes a reset and that’s when I’ll lose all of my data so I’m sort of pissed.  I mean, I just got the damn thing back a few months ago.

Lately I’ve spent more time trying to sync and fix it than I have working out so I’m wondering what the breaking point is….

Ugh, gadgets.

Last week when I had my procedures the nurse had a bit of trouble finding my vein.  It wasn’t too terribly bad and she only missed once but she had to put the IV in my hand and I tend to bruise pretty bad there.

It isn’t painful, it just looks really bad {way worse than the pictures} but I’ve had mad fun with it.  Whenever I’m out and about and someone looks at me or says something, I make comments like, ‘yeah, I know, I need to find another vein’ and then I crack up at the side eye I get.

Do you bruise easy?

Any fitbit struggles for you?

Happy Tuesday.  We’re still hangin in Nokomis with the family.  Today is going to be a beach morning if we can handle the red tide.  We’ll have to see how that goes.  Yesterday we didn’t even attempt it.  Instead we went shopping.

I found the best deal of the day.  This scarf was hiding out at the Goodwill store.  I ain’t even lyin.

Louis Vuitton scarf

Yeah, that does say Louis Vuitton Paris and I only paid 9 bucks for it.  Steal.

We shopped for quite a while and by early afternoon we were starving so we decided to hit up the Lucky Dog Cafe which none of us had ever eaten at before.

I highly recommend it.  The ambiance is great and the food is delish.

These two, such hams.

We got home late in the afternoon and since my nephew was a little bored, we put his artistic talents to work.

He painted a grouper for us and y’all, it is AWESOME.

I promised him I would get him some followers for his instagram account so y’all need to not make a liar out of me and follow him now.

And with that, I’ve got a beach to get to.  See ya tomorrow.

Still waiting…got new shit though so there’s that.

Yesterday I really had had enough.  I just got sick of feeling breathless each and every time I picked up Hank or walked around the house.  It just makes no sense and so I called the doctor’s office.  Of course they could not fit me in until next week but since I told her I was having trouble catching my breath they said they could fit me in with the PA in the urgent care clinic.

fine

So I went over immediately and 15 minutes later I was in the office trying to explain to the PA what the problem is.  Of course he insisted my lungs sound fine and that I am in no immediate danger.  He said I should make sure I follow up with the pulmonologist in August and in the meantime workout when I can and rest when I cant.  He also said my blood pressure was high and I might want to talk to my doctor about it.

Mind you I just saw her 3 weeks ago and it was completely normal.  WTF?

So, still feeling breathless with no answers but I’m no in any immediate danger according to the guy who spent all of  minutes with me.  Thanks.

Fortunately by the afternoon things started to look up.  The mailman dropped off a package I had been waiting on.

shopping

Because when your hands are tied and you have to wait for appointments and test and you don’t feel up to running, you can always shop.  Shopping is the cure to all the worlds problems.

So I still have to wait but at least I have some new things to play with.

So when it comes to medical tests, having them and waiting for results, how patient are you?
