Hardly suprising!

I have high blood pressure! Well, I think anyone could see that coming!  My family all suffer from blood pressure and heart related issues so I need to watch my diet, stop eating such rich food and cut down on my stress. Hmmm.....  how successful will that be, I wonder. 

I've had a quarter of melon for my breakfast and will have some green tea with mint mid morning, probably with some more fruit.  I don't eat a lot of chocolate or biscuits or snacks, so it must be the lack of portion control that's getting to me. That and the red wine! Hey ho, abstinence, here I come!


  1. Oh Yarrow, I'm sorry to hear that! I hope you can control this with diet and not have to be on medication. I feel bad for you that you are giving up rich food and red wine!!! Well, you don't have to fully give those up, just use moderation right?

  2. Sorry to hear this Kim. Selling and moving house is such a stressful thing to do. I hope your BP settles down when you are in France, although the temptation for cutting out red wine over there won't be easy!

  3. I'll cut out cheese and salt first. Red wine thins the blood, I think ;)

  4. ps. I can live on olives and salads, haha.x

  5. i really likes your blog and You have shared the whole concept really well. and Very beautifully soulful read! thanks for sharing.
