We are kicking the kidney meds to the curb and I will see what happens. Hopefully, I will not again experience a gigantic kidney stone that shuts down a kidney as happened in 2004. My blood pressure was 108/60 this morning and I have been off the meds for eleven days. So, it is most likely that my BP just dropped too low again (once it was measured at 90/60).
Other than my persistently high cholesterol (genetic I am sure), I am just fine. Actually, I am in better shape now, than I was four years ago. So, healthy as a horse, just in case I need to pull a plow.
Which is also what bulls do, I guess. I had a sorority sister who used to say she was 'good Polish girl, strong like bull, pull plow in fields.' Whatever. I laughed when my yoga instructor used the 'strong like bull' term in class.
On Monday we had a Vinyasa yoga class that kept us moving. It was a little more challenging than our usual class. Today she had us move from a deep lunge into side angle pose, triangle pose and then half moon. I was hoping she would forget that we had two sides of our bodies to work on. I don't like to sweat in class.
I am thinking that I should book an individual class and bring my camera. Then I can post pictures of my own sweaty body doing the poses. For now, I'll be content with linking to others and be happy knowing that part of the reason I am so calm is due to yoga class. Namaste.
