Day 29 Pill 29

   Hi all its been a few days. I have been doing real good, last night I got to walk 2 miles. On Sunday I did about 1/2 mile up hill non stop. Do to the weather out side right now I will not be walking tonight but I will get 15 to 20 minutes on the glider. I have been very hesitant about running sense I got the news about my blood pressure ( me freaking out ) I plan on walking on nice outside days through next week then on march 18th I am going to start  running. On Friday the 11th I am having a lump removed from my back, so running is out of the question for 1 week.
    I got some really good news from the doctors today I went in for my 30 day follow up since I started taking blood pressure medecian  and she ( the medical technician ) said perfect. My blood pressure was  122 over 70. Yahoo......
   My wife has been really good about helping me change my diet ( cutting out salt ). With a low salt diet I am finding my taste buds changing, things I didn't like in the past are all of a sudden not tasting bad at all.
This is my brother and me after the Providence bridge peddle last year, just thought I would through it in.

Day 24 Pill 24

Hi all this is what I had for dinner tonight. Looks good, It was. Its called Thai Chopped Chicken Salad from Panera Bakery. My wife and I went there for dinner tonight.

Next Friday I am going to have minor back surgery so I will be down for the weekend. So I thought it would be nice for us to get out for a little while. After dinner we went to a new health store in Happy Valley called New Seasons (lots of good stuff ).

Today the rain came down all evening not good for walking or running. Looks like it the glider tonight. my wife made me a smoothie for breakfast today only 50 milligrams(mg) of salt. for lunch I had a Subway sandwich and you are looking at the salad I had for dinner. Be blessed. Have a great day.

Day 22 Pill 22

Well the day is over for me time for bed.  So oatmeal and milk for breakfast is 270 mega grams (mg). I haven't figured out how much is in the sandwich wrap yet but I will. I switch between turkey and beef wraps, we get them at Winco they come 2 to a container. I take 1 for my lunch. I found some some Bite size Frosted Shredded Wheat that is 0 mg of salt ( guess what  my new snacks is) . Haven't gone out walking yet but I did get 25 minutes on the glider tonight. Dinner was amazing, my wife made this home made Chicken pot pie. It was good, good, good. I am so blessed.  My wife is an amazing cook. She is helping me in so many ways to bring down my blood pressure, She has been meeting me at the door every night when I get home from work and greeting me with a smile and  a kiss. She is amazing...... Tomorrow if the weather holds I will venture out for a walk when I get home from work.  Have a blessed day...

Hi there I've been home sick in bed for the past 2 days, have not done anything but sleep. That would be days 15 and 16. Today is day 17 and I haven't taken pill 17 yet. I will take that at 8:30 tonight. I had some time so I thought I would try to catch up. My salt intake for Wednesday was good, oatmeal and milk for breakfast carrots and celery for morning snack leftover sub-way sandwich for lunch and apple and a orange for afternoon snack. for dinner I had left over low salt bean burritos that my wife made  the night before last. Then I went to bed for the next 24 hours. So now we have made it to yesterday. All I had to eat yesterday was 4 pieces of wheat toast no butter with blackberry jam. For dinner I had a no salt home made mix vegetable soup with 2 pieces of toast.  The brief time I was up having dinner (which my amazing wife made)  I managed to stub one of my toes on my right foot. I hit it bad enough that I had a limp all day at work, No walking tonight, will see what happens on the glider... See you tomorrow have a blessed day...
