Oft-repeated resolution - but I mean it this time!
My 6-monthly visit to doctor this morning. Disappointing - Blood pressure significantly up (though it has been appreciably higher than today's in the past). Now he wants me to take my own B.P. twice over next month and then to see him again in 6 weeks. Situation not helped by my having given up running some 8 months ago (because of pains in Ach. Tends.) but also ceasing all other exercise, even walking distances. Now get breathless walking up flights of stairs, which is something really unusual. Lack of exercise also predictably contributing to expanding waistline. Just got to do something about it as when Summer comes and I want to go out dressed in just T-shirt and shorts, the resulting image can justifiably give rise to mirth in others, something I know so well from experience. So got to start the fightback right now - after all, who wants to see a silver bear who looks pregnant?
