    Do you know what your blood pressure is? How about your glucose (sugar) level?

    Well, you should.

    Do yourself a favor and have your doctor check both of them. Most clay shooters (me included) are middle aged guys, a few (30) pounds over weight, and get little to no exercise. Trust me on this one, what you don't know could kill you.

    Have your blood pressure and glucose level checked. Maybe eat a salad and take a walk around the block. Your heart (and kids) will thank you.

    Next time you're at the range, take a look at all the old geezers that are there. News flash, you're one of them.

    This PSA was brought to you by the wonderful people at ysr_racer industries.

    Blood pressure is 90 over 69 (resting). Heart rate is 67, unless I'v been on the treadmill for 20 minutes; then it's usually somewhere around 110.

    Paladin, I don't think you have to check brass ones. So, you're right...I'm good.

    FRedmon,

    I'm flattered that you remember my posts, and even keep a copy of the pictures.

    Thanks.

    Not to bad. My blood pressure was 120/61 last time I had it checked.

    My cholesterol was 149 and I don't take anything for it.

    Took some blood test yesterday and will know the results next week when I go to see the doctor.

    I know I could do better, but that food taste so gooooooooooood! lol

    Hauxfan!

    OK this should make you all ill, gained 30 lbs in the last year, now at 160, pretty much each sugar all day (addicted to pretty much all candy), the cochroach and I have the same diet plan. Discovered the ice cream bars were the reason for weight gain so cut them out and holding 160. Blood pressure is 117/62 and everything else is in the green.

    However, I spend my lunch hour in a gym and probably end up walking 3-5 miles a day at my job.

    40 years old today and I think it's going to catch up to me isn't it????
