Hello again folks! Well, I went to the GP to discuss my BP as the nurse wasn't very happy with it last time she measured it - only my lovely GP was using a different consulting room 'cos there's an IT problem in hers, and she couldn't make the BP machine work properly - it kept saying there was an error - so we had a chat and agreed that I need to lose some weight again ; we agreed that walking every day is a good thing and so is working hard in the garden. We also agreed that my sleeping better and not feeling so tired since retiring and consequently being more in control of my appetite sounds hopeful She thought the 5:2 regime might be helpful but it is not a simple cure-all - agreed.
The upshot of the visit is that I will get my BP checked again in 2 months, when hopefully these changes in my lifestyle have had a chance to have some impact
When we got home the sun was shining so OH and I went for a stomp across the marshes (it's his day off) so know the backs of my legs really ache and I need a sit down
We're planning a pond - just not quite sure where yet
