Today I had myself in order early!! Did the hill and had 70 min. of cardio walking done by 9:30 am!! It was the only way because at 8:00 am it was already 81 degrees and I knew the hill would be hopeless if I waited at ALL. It really made a BIG difference in the day to get the hard stuff cracked out early. I'm going to do the same thing tomorrow morning. It's supposed to be around 103 tomorrow, so there won't be any time for procrastination. Got in a good strength training session tonight - core; lower body.
Groceries were way low so I went to Sam's Club & WalMart. Quite a while ago the pharmacist at Sam's told me they were going to get a new BP machine and that's why the old one was missing. This was months ago. At one point I thought the guy was just telling me a story that sounded good because I'd check every time I went to Sam's and there was never a new machine. Well, what do you know....it was there in all it's glory today. Is it ever NICE!! Takes lots of different tests, BP, BMI, vision, and a few other things I can't remember. The thing even emails the results of whichever tests you choose to your email address! When I did those tests today it was an absolute stunning surprise and a joy. In the past I always did those tests with apprehension, scared of the numbers that would come up. Then I'd take the test again and again, hoping for better numbers. Today's numbers: BP ~ 111/73; pulse 58. BMI ~ 22. Yes, that machine even weighs you!! Tells me that my digital home scale is pretty accurate - which is good too. This SP journey has dropped my BP numbers drastically, as well as lowering my BMI from obese to healthy. That really made my day!!
Had Subway turkey breast sandwich for dinner. Tasted so good. Blueberries for dessert.
Thanks for stopping by today, if you had time. Hope your day was spectacular!!
