I took it shortly after getting up this morning, it was 136/83 pulse rate 87
Got dressed, we went for our morning walk, were gone for about forty minutes, I did break a sweat and I took it immediately. 136/82 pulse 109. Five minutes later, after I’d cooled down somewhat I took it again. 115/85. Pulse 104. So, I don’t think I’m in eminent danger of a stroke, but I’m still going Monday. And I’ve got a chiro appointment at 11:30 this morning, since my back is kind of sore.
I actually got on a scale yesterday. It wasn’t good. I didn’t weigh as much as I did when I did the weight watchers thing back in 2003, but it was damn close. This past month I’ve cut back on a lot of the nibbling I’d been doing and I think I’ve probably lost ten pounds, I’ve lost something, how my clothes fit is a definite indication, so that would have put me over the WW beginning weight.
Ah, well, at least I know there’s a problem and I’m doing something about it. Not thinking about it doesn’t make it go away.
