Well this morning i rock up to the Gym i have joined all excited to be starting my new fitness regime. It was to be a introduction to all the machinery that will turn me gorgeous!! I rock up wearing my new runners, new track pants and very old t-shirt as I hate the totally "new outfit look". Anyway I have to fill in the health check sheet to which I answer No, No, No and No to all the "have you ever suffered....." questions. The gorgeous young girl them takes my blood pressure and tells me I have high blood pressure so I wont be actually able to use the equipment but she will show me anyway!! She asks if I am nervous - "well maybe a little" and asks if I have had coffee "Of course!". Anyway I feel like a complete idiot learning about all the new "gorgeous making machines" while standing next to them! I finish my "tour" and she tells me to sit down and she will take my BP again. I tell her "Well of course it will be higher because you have worried the crap out of me!" and it is - 160 over 80!!! She then asks what I am doing this time tomorrow - "Oh I'll probably be in the Cardiac Unit, why?". She wants me to come back tomorrow and have someone else take my BP. Now I to say I have NEVER had high blood pressure before - pregnacies and all it has always been Joe Blow Average!!! So I didn't come home from the gym gorgeous - I came home pissed off, old and not gorgeous!!!
So this afternoon I went over to some married friends who are both nurses and had them play doctors and nurses on me - turns out it is a bit high - so I guess I had better get it checked out!! And really just when I was all calm with exams over and hubby back and all of that - shit I hate to think what it was last week!!!! Think I'll go and have some more Red Wine -that is good for the heart!!
