October 1, 2015: Three Good Things

1. My blood pressure has been steadily creeping higher and higher, to the point that I feel compelled to bring it to the attention of my doctor when I see her in a couple weeks. However, it seems that my sedentary lifestyle is affecting it more than I really want it to. My evening blood pressure, a couple hours after my walk, was lower than its been in days.

2. One of the restaurants that my wife and I used to frequent closed a few months ago and was reopened by the same company with a different name and menu. Apparently the experiment wasn’t successful, as I discovered tonight on their website that they’ve reopened as the original restaurant again. They have good burgers on site-baked buns with incredible fries for pretty cheap. (Yeah, I know it’s not the healthiest thing in the world, but everyone needs a cheat day.)

3. Looks like I’ll be extending my streak of complete days to four. Given how completely out of energy I was a couple months ago, getting back to this stage is exciting for me. It also is convincing me more and more that the medication I was missing had a lot to do with the downswing.
