Blood PressureYesterday I had to go do my six month checkup with the doctor.  For those that don’t know me, I absolutely hate going to the doctor and hate hospitals even more.  I needed to go back in to have my blood pressure checked.  My blood pressure has never been really bad but always borderline.  Couple that with my horrific family history and I’m on blood pressure meds.

The nurse checked me in, took my BP and pulse, and I waited for the doctor.  He came in and said my BP and pulse were excellent.  We talked about my recent return to bicycling to lose weight, how I’m doing it, mileage so far, diet modifications, and weight goals.  All-in-all it was a very good talk.  I guess I was fortunate that I had to have this visit and it coincided with the beginning of Biking To Live.
