I am completely healthy except for a virus (common cold) and high blood pressure (125/82 ... it is supposed to be under 120/80). So she gave me this list of things to do to reduce my blood pressure:
* stop smoking
* stop drinking
* lose weight
* eat healthy

Let's look at this list shall we... I don't smoke, I don't drink. My Mom will worry about me if I lose weight. I eat three vegetables at dinner and at least three fruits between breakfast and lunch. I eat whole grain foods with nothing added to them. I drink skim milk and water. I live with the Howard's where everything is bought from Trader Joe's or is equally healthy. I really don't think I can do anything on the list. There were some other things on the list that were equally absurd, but I don't remember. So anyhow, I need to lower my blood pressure. Anyhow suggestions?!? heh. It is like my big joke right now. I even had a salad with dinner last night. Woohoo salads!! (it was the strawberry, orange, walnut, and Gorgonzola cheese salad... YUM YUM YUM).

Now if I could stop feeling tired and get rid of these spots on the back of my tounge and this annoyings runny nose, cough, and sneeze that I have had for two weeks. Maybe it has something to do with my high blood pressure...

My brother's blood pressure goes up whenever he foes to the doctor. When he takes it at home it's always fine. I think his nerves about the doc's office makes it rise. Perhaps since yours is so close it's the same deal....
