DH Health Update & Feeling Motivated

June 18th, 2015 at 01:14 pm

DH had an appointment this morning with the pulmonologist. Just a routine recheck. Everything has checked out normally thus far - Good!
His blood pressure is still slightly high.
The doctor wants one more test - a stress test. DH is already scheduled for this Monday. I am so glad we don't have to wait weeks to get that done like we did for the two echocardiograms.
Fingers Crossed it turns out normal.
That should then mean his heart is totally normal & in good working order. Big Grin

I've put my head in the sand as far as medical related costs. DH and I are going to sit down together soon and see what needs to be paid. We will ask to be put on a payment plan. The last statement we received showed our amount due was near the $4k mark.

In related news. We started going to the gym together and made the goal of going every day until the end of June.

I kept suggesting he go to the gym while I was gone at work. Pretty quickly realized he didn't want to go alone. Fine, I'll go too - it's not like I don't need to go to the gym also! Wink

I have also been encouraging him to join me when I walk the little path by our house in the mornings. I just do 8 to 10 minutes before I get ready for work. It is so lovely and smells so good in the mornings it gets the day started off on the right foot so to speak.

What I realized recently is that as much as I love my DH I cannot MAKE HIM improve his health. Sure I can support him and make suggestions, but otherwise I cannot change HIM. So let me shift my focus - I CAN change ME. Big Grin
That said, I am concentrating on working out, avoiding to much junk food and de-stressing.

(Sounds corny) But I can be the best me I can be!

    That sounds like a wonderful plan! Looking forward to hearing more about what your doing and how you are feeling.

    Yep, I hear you. I have to tell that to myself about my bf. He knows what he needs to do/should stop doing. It isn't up to me to tell/remind. I can only focus on what I can change - and that is me.

    You have another one in the same boat! Because my husband works in a physical job he has no energy or motivation for exercise or healthiness (he is overweight). I've managed to get him to start eating breakfast- it's not healthy but it is something quick he can have which will at least be *a breakfast *. But seriously it's a battle and all I can do is let him make his own decisions and just focus on my own health.
