This little section of the
YouCanLearnSeries Website is to talk to you about steps you can take to improve
your health. This is more than weightlifting. We will discuss eating right,
exercising, mental health, goal setting and more. On January 2, 2004, I set out
to my local blood bank to donate blood. If you have ever given blood before,
you know one of the first things they do is take your blood pressure. Well my
blood pressure was so high the blood bank wouldn't even allow me to give blood.
I immediately called up my general practitioner and was able to get in to see
him that day.
