The Scariest Thing

Friday was my favorite type of winter workout weather.  It was cold but not freezing and it was snowing - a very peaceful time to be out exercising.  I really wanted to do a walk and I didn't want it to be on the treadmill, so I bundled up in layers and headed out for a short two mile walk.  It was wonderful to not be walking on the treadmill and things were going great.  The snow had drifted in some spots and I kinda wished I had my YakTraks on, but I was getting it done nonetheless.  The wind was strong and caused me to really work in some spots.  As I made my way home and up the steps of the porch, I got really hot, and dizzy, and things started to go black.  All I could think was "oh crap, I'm going to pass out and land on the baby."  I found a way to open the door and yelled to Dave, "Help!  I don't feel well!!"  I sat myself on the floor before I did pass out and Dave came rushing down the stairs.  I kept telling him, "I'm hot.  I'm hot."  He helped me strip off some layers of clothes and take my shoes off.  My heart was pounding and Dave said my face was all red.  I sat on the floor a while until everything calmed down.  And then I felt fine. 

My mom thinks maybe I had a sudden drop in blood pressure or blood sugar.  It didn't worry me enough to call the doctor as I felt better afterwards.  Maybe I need to take it down a notch when I workout outside.  I'm just going to write it off as a freak thing and move on.  But scary!!!
