But our hearts are definitely on our minds when something goes wrong. No one wants that to happen.
I had my own scare once when my heart kept skipping beats over and over (or at least that's how it felt) and I had to go to the emergency room. They ran all kinds of fun tests and concluded that it was stress.
A few months ago I had to visit a cardiologist when I was having chest pains and tightness in my chest. It turns out that I couldn't take the medicine metformin for my insulin resistance. Whew!
Lori at Finding Radiance has set up a Blogger's Heart Healthy Weekend for February 11th, 12th and 13th to celebrate our healthy hearts. You choose your day. You can bike it, walk it, run it, treadmill it, elliptical it...whatever you want and for whatever distance you choose. Just get moving and bless your heart.
I have committed to do a duathlon at home: 2 miles run/8 miles bike/2 miles run. What about you?! Sign up today and let's have a fun weekend together.
Yesterday I took a rest day from exercise. But I was active all day running errands, grocery shopping, signing Rachel up for a cake decorating class, cooking dinner, etc. Still burned 2213 calories!
My mom called me. She's been working on our family tree and finding some interesting stuff like we're related to some dude that had Whitmore Castle (I forgot his name) and we're relatives of King Edward I of England. Cool! So I'm the queen around these parts now. "Let me eat cake!" or something like that.
Dinner was Cheesy Meat Loaf Minis from Cooking Light's February issue. Every one loved these. I don't really like meat loaf but even I thought they were great. Recipe can be found here.

I started today with protein pancakes, 2 Tbs maple syrup, and a pink orange. Tasty and filling. I like having the syrup on the side so I can just tear the pancakes and dip them. I find that I use less syrup that way.
Have a wonderful day. I'll see you tomorrow. :)
