There. I said it.
I think I am in denial that it's from being overweight. My Doctor told me that it was from stress...maybe he was just trying to be nice.
I know it's from being overweight. Inside, I really do. But, I feel that I am not in that "place" right now to try to start a diet plan. Though my family and I did cut out all fast food a couple of months ago, and we now eat 3 meals a day at home, which is much healthier compared to eating out, so I am taking small steps.
My Doctor told me to start checking my blood pressure 2 times a day while I start the new medication (which supposedly is the dose for a 6 year old with ADHD) so I am not on a high dose of meds, but he wants me to keep track of my blood pressure for the next month or so.
Going to the grocery store to check my blood pressure twice a day is do-able, but it would be a real inconvenience for me and my family, so I started looking for the BEST at home Blood Pressure Monitor out there, and I found this one by Ozeri.
One of my favorite features was that it's completely, 100% digital. All I have to do is wrap the cuff on my arm and press start. It seems to be tighter (not the cuff, but the pressure) than those at the store, but nothing I can't live with.
As you can see, my husband's blood pressure was green (normal) for the top reading and yellow (pre-hypertension) for the bottom reading.
I am loving my Ozeri Blood Pressure Monitor, and I love checking my blood pressure daily from the comfort of my own home.
You can purchase one for yourself here!
I received a Blood Pressure Monitor from Ozeri in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
