So I'm trying to get into a routine with my new health concerns. Part of that is checking my blood pressure morning and evening. This morning I headed downstairs, skipped the coffee maker, prepared a breakfast of fruit and cottage cheese, put that down on the table, and went over to the couch where my newly acquired blood pressure monitor is. I strap the cuff on and start the cycle. As soon as the air pump kicks in, one of my stupid cats jumps up on the table and starts eating my breakfast. So I'm yelling at the cat and looking around for something to throw at him without disconnecting from the monitor. Needless to say, my blood pressure results pegged a little high this morning.
