Those are good pressures. I'm guessing that it's been pretty good all along, that it was just up transiently when you had it taken before, or that the things that you have done brought it down.

I went to the doctor two weeks ago and the nurse took my bp and it was around 120 over 80 but after waiting 25-minutes and getting a little mad for waiting so long, the doctor took it and it was slightly elevated around 140 over 90. She said that she wants me back to check my blood pressure in a couple months. I also took blood work and my levels were OK.
