So I might have a stroke

I have a lot on my mind today. A well-written, organized post isn't gonna happen.  In fact, I'm resorting to bullet points...
  • Sunday, I decided to start eating better, drinking more water, getting some exercise, and sleeping more than 6 hours a night.  I've been feeling like dog doo-doo and I know my lifestyle is the cause.
  • Today I checked my blood pressure at Wal-Mart.  It was 148/105.  That's. Not. Good. Worm wasn't even being a brat or anything, so it was probably accurate.
  • I now have a doctor's appointment Wednesday morning.  Good thing I already decided on the lifestyle changes because now I'm going to get an earful about that plus some Beta Blockers. Aging is fun!
  • I am telling you all of this so that I have some accountability.


  1. Wowsers! You need to simmer down! And get some exercise that doesn't involve chasing a toddler around! Gotta take care of you!

  2. Already on it. I did some arm, ab & leg work followed by yoga last night (good thing I bought those weights). Today I put Worm in the stroller and took a brisk 35 minute walk. Planning to do more yoga tonight. Please stay on me about the exercise. You know I'll stay on you to keep the apartment tidy, now you have something to dish back at me.

  3. Talking about needing Jen to calm down and using ! points probably does not get the point across.

    Jen ... you ... need ... to ... be ... calm. Take ... nice ... slow ... deep ... breaths ... and ... move ... through ... life ... a ... little ... slower.

    Love ya!
