1,000 and counting

Well the first hit mark has been hit...1,021 visitors in less than 2!! I never dreamed I could get that many looks so I guess I must have something interesting everyone is checking in on me so thanks;)

Today was another pretty good day, a little low in calories but not too horrible. Also, I never really thought about things like this but the other day I went to check my blood pressure (high blood pressure runs on my dad and mom's side) and it had gone down. I asked my mom about it and she stated it was too low so anyone know?? It was 108/72 she said I may need to take some iron to help up it a little so well see any takers would be greatly appreciated it. Oh and my normal BP was around 120-125 before so I guess losing weight does lower that as well...interesting....

My mom made some burgers with ground turkey which I had never had since I had been I guess what you called the "oh its not going to taste good syndrome" but she added some rub & A-1 and they were devine. Hubby even commented how good they were then I told him they were turkey and he was shocked so see add some good seasonings and you can fool anyone...haha! Also, I havent been a huge, huge fan of wheat buns but have found that sara lee makes some fabulous ones so try them out if you are trying to get into the wheat crave....

Oh and for any of those that dont know what sweet tea...its a VERY southern thing that you will only find served in the south that Im aware of. Pretty much its regular brewed tea with sugar added and usually lots of it...delicious..but oh so not calorie free....haha!

Hi Amber!
I use Google Reader (an RSS-feed) to keep track of your blog, and I don't know how often it checks your blog. Might be very often. ;) Still that many visitors is amazing!!
Your mother is right about your bloog pressure - a normalt blood pressure is around 120/80 mmHg. Normally, you talk about a high blood pressure when it's above 149/90 (or even lower if you're a diabetic). Having a low blood pressure is not dangerous (unless you get it from a traumatic bleeding and such), and needs no treatment. You might feel dizzy at times, though.
Taking iron pills doesn't make a difference on the blood pressure, but you might want to check out your iron value (or haemoglobin) as well, since you do eat very little while losing weight.

I use bloglines to keep track of updates. I don't know how often it checks, but I'm always happy to see there is one!

Congrats on the high hit! (I also use an RSS feed to check your blog, don't know how that affects your numbers!)
I wouldn't worry too much about your blood pressure at the moment. A slightly low blood pressure, about like yours, is a good sign in athletes, so it might not mean anything for you. (I read on webmd because I couldn't remember the ranges!) But if you start experiencing problems check with your doctor, or at least a hospital nurse line.

Up until a couple of years ago, my BP tended to run in the low 100s or even the upper 90s. My doctor didn't seem concerned about it. When I used to give plasma, they'd still let me give at that BP as long as my iron levels were OK. Just aim for 120 or below, and you'll be fine.
