AM update

Busy day planned for today. I have another workout scheduled in about an hour, then Mary and I are going to our local health foods store (affectionately known as "Hippie Foods") for a cheap iridology session. Then, who knows? More later.

Saturday evening

The iridology guy managed to get on both Mary's and my nerves. I have to say that he was accurate in diagnosing my high blood pressure and pointing out that I need more oxygen in my bloodstream, but he was a bit hard to understand and a bit dictatorial. Mary hated the guy, and was NOT SHY in letting me know about it.

We just hung out at home for the rest of the day. My arms are still stiff and sore from the workout this morning. He said he was going to work my abs and legs, but I did a lot of arm and shoulder work. I am not getting the free weights thing. I suppose that it's something that comes with time.

So, I'm watching the ball game and relaxing.

Oh, I did get an email telling me that my RESPeRATE unit was on its way. I've been thinking for some time that I don't breathe correctly, and that apparently can cause high blood pressure and cause a person to gain weight. I'm going to try this and see if, as advertised, it helps me bring my blood pressure down to something close to normal. Watch this space for further developments.
