Morning Walk

It’s supposed to rain all day, and most days for the next week, so I’m squeezing in a walk where I can. I took a look at the radar this morning and figured I could get an hour’s walk, which is about four miles, in before it hit.

It still isn’t raining so I probably could have headed to the lake for a much more enjoyable walk, instead of traipsing back and forth on the road in front of our house, which gets quite tedious as there is only a little over a quarter mile stretch of it that is free of big scary dogs.

Beats getting caught 3 miles out from the car in a downpour though!

Yesterday I baked another loaf of sourdough with spelt and a variety of seeds for myself.

I’ve got quite a few leftovers in the fridge so it’ll be a few more days before I can do another wholegrain sourdough waffle binge, but I’m craving them again!

I don’t plan on doing much of anything today. Yesterday was my first day on blood pressure medicine, and about 12 hours after taking my first dose, my blood pressure dropped (to a normal range, from being high) and so did my pulse, so much so that I went to bed feeling like I was going to black out. My pulse was still low when I got up (51bpm) but it and my BP are normal now, and I feel okay other than an absolutely wicked headache.

But I’m going to monitor it frequently today! The nurse thinks my BP is causing my headaches. I think my headaches are causing my BP issues. I guess we’ll find out!

Jim’s been on back shift all week and I haven’t been able to talk to him, so looking forward to a call today!
