I have a confession …I have high blood pressure …
So I have been doing some research..FUN FACTS I found out ..( mind you I took what doc said and checked NUMEROUS websites as well as talked with people diagnosed high blood pressure so I can say with confidence this shit is pretty accurate ..or I am making this stuff up like Wed MD ..either way read on )
-High Blood pressure is not brought on by stress ( as previously thought ). Stress is NOT GOOD at all for your body and takes a toll in many different places however the CAUSE of high blood pressure is not stress. Stress CAN exasperate High Blood pressure. Weight-diet/smoking/heredity are what causes high blood pressure.
-Taking your blood pressure 2x every day for four days can give you a “base ” or what your norm is ..you have to do it everyday at the same time though. Crew at work took mine today …
-Taking Vitamin E/Omega 3’s and D-3 will lower your blood pressure over time. You must continue to take everyday for ever ..and eva 🙂
-Salt of ANY kind is not healthy for people with high blood pressure ..sea salt ..pink salt …kosher salt …no salt is good .. “salt ” food I didn’t know ..cottage cheese ..string cheese or specifically mozzarella …lunch meat …tomato based processed foods …and the OBVIOUS salt culprits ..canned ( EWWW ) …processed foods ..fast food ..MY SECRET FAV TOP RAMON.BTW They make a low sodium ( really almost everything ) Ezekiel bread ..its actually good !
-Exercise can help with weight lose which helps with high BP HOWEVER exercise alone can increase BP ..interesting huh ?? Many athletes ( runners) have high BP … must be why I have it ..and if u believe that you should see my last marathon time ..:)
-Severe headaches or migraines can be a sign of High BP …if u get them EVEN once go see a doc..especially with no history …
OK on a happier note :
Max’s school conference went fabulous and hysterical !!
-His reading and math “concepts” are above his grade level.
-His handwriting is VERY neat ( NO CLUE WHERE HE GETS THIS )
-He is and I quote ” a wonderful sharer..a great example to the other shyer kids who have trouble speaking in front of the class. I do USE a timer to keep his sharing down.” (LMAO-I LITERALLY LAUGHED OUT LOUD)
-Max has trouble “sharing talking time with the teacher ” and she would like to see him listen more than raise hand to interject . ( SHE IS A SAINT ..I love the way she put this ..lets all read between the lines ..ur kid is the one that raises his hands too much and its annoying as hell )
FROM THE PE TEACHER:”He is great at PE and sports very coordinated ..he LOVES kick ball” 🙂
FROM THE SPANISH TEACHER :”Max is the most enthusiastic learner in his class. A pleasure to teach. He really understands foreign language ” ( AWWW it ‘s talking and words therefore OF COURSE Max is enthusiastic )
From the Art teacher :”Max loves to learn and try new things. Will be watching his fine motor skill development needs to improve. ”
His Chapel buddy ( 5th grader ) writes a little something too ..” Max is always polite and sits still.He likes to hold my hand. I love him and can babysit anytime ” (She left her number -LMAO )
They do not give out grades yet BUT overall it was a great report !! YAYYYA Max !!
