Results from the bionic woman test

Well, I've got my results from my 24 hour blood pressure test in my not little hands.

My average blook pressure is fine, I think, 132/84m 134/88 during the day, 126/76 at night (with notes "non-dipper").

But what's bad, I think, is my diastolic spikes: 109 at 7 PM, when I was cooking, for God's sake, and 101 at 8:37 when I was taking the tube into work, I think - or maybe when the nurse was measuring me (it's supposed to be under 80). But why in the world is my heart thundering along at 134 (systolic, you want it below 140 when awake and 105 when asleep) at six in the morning?

At any rate, I'm supposed to go into a cardiology clinic and get some more substantial examination. I'll hold off the gym thing until I get back from vacation - no point paying for a 9 week membership when I'm going to be gone for almost an entire week.

Nice night yesterday at Leviathan - a real treat to have djm making dinner for us. Thanks, all!

Today, work like hell, tonight, City Ballet at the Coliseum - woo!
