Movin' right along...

So I went to the doctor today. First time I've seen a non-psych doctor in at least 5 years. It went okay. My blood pressure was *really* high (for me) for some strange reason. Lower than usual on the bottom, but the top number was higher than even the reading I got before I started eating better and exercising. I'm going to chalk it up to a faulty machine and just keep an eye on it.
But more importantly, my weight had gone down a bit more. I suppose I should be cautious, given the anomalous reading on the blood pressure machine. But I would rather just assume it's correct, because it means I get my second reward for losing weight.
I had written it down as 'two CDs' but I decided to grab a CD and a book I've been looking forward to. The book is 'The Spirit Thief' by Rachel Aaron. A woman handed me the first two or three chapters of the book as a sample at Dragon*Con. I didn't expect it to be any good, but I was really engaged by it within just a paragraph or two. I can't wait to read it. Hopefully it holds up to a full read.
So, things are going well. Assuming my weight reading wasn't just a fluke. ;)
