Yesterday when I stopped for my prescription, I did a blood pressure check. 146/90. Not bad considering I was about 2 miles into my walk. I sat still and took about 12 deep, slow breaths, and then did it again and it was 128/84. That's the best it's been in a long time!
I also noticed the blood pressure cuff didn't hurt like usual. It squeezes so tightly it really pinches my arm. Only it wasn't as bad this time -- perhaps because I'm a teeny bit smaller now!
