We Heart a Healthy Heart (sorry for lazy title) December 10, 2017

I recently found out I am in Heart failure {recently = March 2017}. I am in A Fib (Atrial fibrillation ) and the focus on weight loss and exercise is the best thing I can do. I have created some improvement by following doc’s orders taking the medicine and exercising regularly with a good plan.  I have written and will do more on the food and diet component, since I have lost significant weight.

I have watched lots of videos and read books and articles on all of this. I will write more about this and am contemplating the creation of a “gym” specifically for heart patients.

This is a simple exercise plan and idea. Ultimately the best exercise for you is something YOU WILL DO.  And do so consistently.  


Exercise and heart health according to a medical expert. Exercise serves many purposes and can be helpful for diagnosing and identifying heart problems. it will also help measure changes and improvements.
