Exercise: Did It

Did it! I walked on the treadmill for an hour. It felt great to get an earlier start on exercise.

My blood pressure remains elevated. However, I discovered another reason for the elevation: my diet. Lately, I eat processed foods that have high salt content. Diet can affect blood pressure. Foods high in salt can elevate it, and foods like blueberries can reduce it. Also, I have not taken omega-3 flax seed oil in months. It’s time to be mindful of my diet and take omega-3 fats.
