Lose 60 Pounds = Blood Pressure 117/72
Thursday, January 16, 2020
I had a pleasant surprise at the doctor's office yesterday when I went for my prescription renewals. Because I take BP meds, she checks my blood pressure. She said you must be very relaxed your BP is 117/72. Beg to differ Dr. I think losing 60 pounds helps. I was first aware of my BP 25 years when I learned it was high and went on meds. 117/72 is the lowest I have every known it to be.
I have been ordering clothes online, a first for me. I am not sure what size I wear and with vanity sizing I may have some interesting fits. I ordered from Macy's and JC Penney's so those clothes will be easy to return if needed. I ordered a few things from Amazon, and I am not sure about doing those returns.
I live on the west coast and we had a snowfall which resulted in storm warnings, road closures, cancellations of exercise classes, social activities, mail delivery, school, ferries, and shockingly the University of British Columbia's annual snowball fight was cancelled due to snow! It paralyzed traffic and kept a lot of people off the road. I have a 4 wheel drive truck with snow tires, and years of experience driving on prairie winter roads, so it's been easy to get around. I am cautious of west coast drivers with limited snow experience. Yesterday I went shopping and later picked up my friend from the airport. She is visiting for a week.
My puppy Rebel is 5 months old and her potty training is going well, though with snow she's had to be very brave and get out there. The sidewalk salt bothers her feet, so we avoid it. Today she lost her first baby tooth. She can do sit, stay, down, and come. Smart girl. At bedtime she is ready to snuggle into her cozy crate. She loves dog school and playing with Royce. They frolic in the yard, zipping around tagging each other and looking for squirrels. Happy dogs!
Later I am looking for vintage silk scarves. I will post pictures of the treasures I find.
