A FIB / Atrial Fibrillation living and overcoming with diet. Heart health from the kitchen. January 28, 2019

I have been living with A Fib / Atrial Fibrillation for about 2 years. The symptoms vary and they come and go. Now in the heart of the winter I think I am retaining more water/ fluids since I am not sweating as much. (Need to hit the gym some more, maybe wear a sweatshirt).

Most of these posts are personal research BUT I hope this can be helpful for other folks.

Later today I will head to Trader Joe’s for some food. This research just confirmed what I already know/ knew. It also reminded me me of the ” sins” I was making in feeding myself and MY HEART.

Time to do it better.

** Interesting video with some very basic information. SUMMARY: cut out salt, oil and sugar, highly processed foods.

Now what diet to Follow? Metro, No. arb , High starch, plant base or vegan?

No processed foods????? How about the newly popular Raw Food Diets, which are also plantbased?

** Some general heart healthy and Blood pressure positive foods, very important for A Fib.

Starting Back at the Gym – June 6, 2018

I was going to a local gym but had to take a break for some work and life interruptions, now I rejoined another gym and it is going well. I have been there a week and have lost several pounds so far..

I believe that I eat better as a result of the lifestyle that a workout plan and visits to the gym create. Now I will develop and create my workout.  I have weight loss and health  plans and ultimately I will utilize much more of the equipment at the gym

Step 1- Get up off the couch, push away from the donut counter

Step 2- Start with some basic cardio . I love the rowing machine, step machine , Arc Trainer and elliptical

Step 3- Look at the equipment in the gym and learned how to use it

Step 4 – Find a workout plan- online or get help at the gym or buy a few books

Step 5- Go to the gym 3-6 days a week and HAVE FUN….you will want to come back.

Enjoy this GETTING STARTED VIDEO

I just listened to a great (short) vlog from Darren Hardy discussing the role of leadership in setting the tone and message for a team or group.

In a few short minutes Darren shared some great stuff and more can be revealed learned from his books and others available.

I recently re-read SEE YOU AT THE TOP by ZIG ZIGLAR. It was/is his classic from the mid-70’s. It is refreshing in the lack of references to the net, computers and social media. There is much talk of relationships but the focus is on real and face to face connections and contact.

There are several key parts of the book and I will a brief summary of them but the central focus of the book an of Zig’s life as a teacher and trainer, as a DIFFERENCE MAKER in the lives of people, is his famous quote- “YOU CAN HAVE EVERYTHING YOU WANT IN LIFE IF YOU HELP ENOUGH OTHER PEOPLE GET WHAT THEY WANT”

That is an amazingly simple, common sense goal but so difficult for many people to commit to.

That is the central for Zig but in the book he broke it down in the following ways and under the listed ideas:

A. Value of a Healthy Self Image and how to do that

B. Improving relationships with others

C. Goals – Creating ,Writing, and Completing them

D. Attitude- what is a right attitude..and where is it?

E. Work- Value of work

F. Desire

Now this is a basic and simplistic summary, the book is a fast read and loaded with information on all of these topics. The most valuable addition to this book is a list of great books for each of the 6 subjects above.

Healthy Heart Survey- Food Questions February 4, 2018

I was playing with a survey from  a friend and thought to make one for my own research and information. Since I am interested in getting healthier and improving my heart I wanted to enlist your help in collecting information .

I have changed my diet and increased the amount of exercise I am doing, my heart has improved but has a way to go.

This simple survey is a baseline/starting point for a project for a heart health website or page.
