Healthy You Challenge – Week 29

Welcome to Pout Fest 2008! Actually, I think the festival ended last night because I wasn’t pouting at the end of the day, but during the day yesterday? Pouting, in abundance!

1) Doctor did NOT change the blood pressure medication. “Not this time.” With medication, my BP was 130/88, which is the high end of the normal range, so I know he’s right, but still. I’m disappointed.

2) The doctor also wanted to take a ‘wait and see’ approach to my sports injury bad posture injury. I think that’s because after only a couple days of trying to sit with my legs uncrossed, I can sense a definite improvement. Sigh. So close…

(For those who don’t know me, I am seriously kidding about being disappointed with NOT having an injury. I will be quite happy if it’s this simple to fix!)

3) I lost an entire half-pound (or so) this week! I’m certain it would have been lots and lots more if not for Mother Nature. I could’ve possibly lost an entire pound if not for the gifts of being a girl. Oh well, we’ll get that other half pound next week, right? Right.

4) It was 98 degrees at 11:00 yesterday morning! The temps got into the 100s at some point and were still hovering near there at 7:00 last night. And yet, people are out walking, running, biking–and not a water bottle in sight. I swear, some folks looked like they were staggering. Me? I sweated it out with Trainer Kevin (he who thinks lunge-lunge-squat is fun!) in the hot-ish studio and then headed home.

I know I had other things to report on, but they completely escape me now. This heat saps my brain….

Hope you all had a great week and are off to a great start this week!
