  • Exercise is helping me lose inches
    on Nov 6, 2008 in Hypertension exercise weight loss
    I might not have my blood pressure as under control as I would like it to be, but I must say that exercising at the gym is paying dividends with regards to losing some inches around my waist. I have been gyming 3 times a week for the last 8 weeks and...
  • I’m really getting into my swimming!Yes, a couple of months down the line, and the pool sessions are getting better and better! On Sunday I had my longest swimming session yet - 800m (32 lengths)! With the longest non-stop swim of 150m (6 lengths). And the best part is that I felt like...
  • Holidays are great!
    on Sep 22, 2008 in Hypertension blood pressure holiday
    I’m back at work after a fantastic week and a half at the coast. Being away from the daily grind makes you realise how much stress, etc that we subject ourselves to on a daily basis. Getting up in the morning and strolling down to the beach wit.
  • Is more sleep helping to lower my blood pressure?
    on Sep 8, 2008 in Hypertension sleep swimming
    I unfortunately don’t know the answer to that question yet! All I know is that since I caught a stomach bug I’ve been going to bed a lot earlier most nights and found myself wanting to lie in come morning. I also haven’t bee
  • The up-side to having a stomach bugI  finally made my way back to gym this week after being away for 2 weeks, fully hoping that my blood pressure would have sorted itself out. The water was quite nice, but I could still only manage 300m in the pool which I guess isn’t too bad c.

    on Sep 4, 2008 in Hypertension illness
    I’ve been “man down!” for a week! The stomach bug which I thought I had cleverly dodged got me on Sunday, a week back. I woke up feeling very tired and sore and spent the whole morning on the couch thinking that it had just b
  • Good to be back in the swimming pool!
    on Sep 1, 2008 in Hypertension exercise swimming
    I made it back to the gym after being away for a week, what with the wife & kids down with a tummy bug - which I thankfully managed to dodge! My initial plan was to swim around 300m, as I had been away for a bit, but it just felt so good being i.
  • Alcohol and hypertension
    on Aug 31, 2008 in Hypertension alcohol blood pressure
    I indulged in a couple of pints of Guinness today - and they were glorious! It’s been at least 6 months since I last had a pint of the black stuff. As per the old Guinness ads: “My Goodness My Guinness” indeed! Of course, it
  • A matter of discipline and organisation
    on Aug 27, 2008 in Hypertension DASH diet exercise
    Now that I am going to gym three times a week I find that I have got a bit slack on eating correctly. The occassional indulgence in junk food has become more frequent which I am sure, in turn, negates a lot of the benefit of exercising. How am I goi...
  • Going to gym is paying off!I am VERY happy to report that it looks as though going to gym and working out does indeed help to lower my blood pressure! The blood pressure monitor at the gym has been broken for the last 2 weeks (GRRR) so I went for a checkup at the doctor’.
