Menu Plan

I have been busy trying to get my blood pressure under control and trying to lose some weight.  A couple of weeks ago I was getting nauseated at work. I have been having intermittently small chest pains that I have been blowing off. Then I decided to check my blood pressure at the store one day when I had a big headache. My blood pressure was 149/107.  I got me a little worried, but I decided to take some aspirin and go to work. The next day I checked again at the store and it was 152/110. This time I decided I should go to the doctor since it was going up and not down. After an EKG, being checked over, and $150 later I am now on blood pressure medication. They ran a bunch of test, I don't smoke, drink on rare occasions, I try to exercise. The only reason for my high blood pressure is hereditary. So now I am taking my medication and trying to keep my sodium in take at less than 1500 mg. I'm eating more vegetables and fruit, recording what I have been eating with MyFitnessPal app on my phone.
