I still eat a low cholesterol diet and have never cooked with or added salt to my food. I am working with a nutritionist. My cardio doctor would like me to stay relaxed but i have added low cardio work out. As to my heart attack i had no idea i was having one i was just in a lot of pain. I still cant tell when things are going wrong so i ware a heart monitor and check vitals. Like a fitbit but only for the heart. I hope to post my positives up here and gain support. Thank you all.

Best wishes in getting control of your blood pressure. Has your doctor given you a list of foods to avoid and a list of what is safe? How about a registered dietician?

Stick with your program and welcome to SparkPeople!

Well im on day 5 of the challenges. Introducing myself. I am working on blood pressure goals. My blood pressure has gone up to 173/ 103 with a heart rate of 153 while i sleep. I have always ate healthy but didnt pay attention to what was in my food of to much sodium etc. So i need to run the course of check the lable. Well i am learning to make my old fashioned ways of life No Box food. Since i have started i have seen a big difference. I do however feel that urge to eat something not so good from time to time. I need that extra over the hump push. I know enjoying a not so good food is ok here and there but i see the results in my blood pressure. I started working on this before Thanksgiving and have stumbled by giving into to urge to eat the not so healthy over portion foods. New years i have held pretty strong to focusing on my health. When i was 13 i had my first heart attack. I have never been over weight. I am unable to work anymore due to my heart rate jumps very high just by standing. I have found an easy to do exercise routine and dont push to hard so my heart dont stop any more. Anyway this is the reason for my goal. Having fun making new things to try.
