Vive Blood Pressure Monitor: The Little Machine That Does BIG Things.


High blood pressure runs in my family. I've had several family members have serious health issues and some lose their life because of it.  Over the years my blood pressure continued to rise.  Finally, a few years ago I gave in and started taking medication to control it.  The last couple years I have introduced regular exercise and trying to eat better into my life (running has kind of become an addiction).
It has aided in the lowering of the dose of medication I need to take.  The past summer the doctor attempted to take me off of the medication due to my very active lifestyle. but my blood pressure shot right back up.  It turns out it is genetics.  As soon as I went back on the medication it was right back where it should be.  Due to this factor it is important that I keep it monitored. Can't let it get high and I need to watch that it does not get too low (that has happened also).  That is where this great little machine that does big things comes in.

It is a portable device that allows you to accurately track blood pressure from the comfort of home. It features a two user functionality and a 500 combined measurement memory. Measures systolic blood pressure (the pressure in blood vessels when the heart is beating), diastolic blood pressure (the pressure in blood vessels when the heart is resting between beats), and pulse rate (in beats per minute). 
It will also detect and alert you of irregular heartbeats and comes with a 2 year warranty.
My life is so busy that I was rarely checking my blood pressure as often as I should.  I was having to check it at the store and usually I didn't want to wait or I just wanted to get out of the store.  The Vive Blood Pressure Monitor has taken all my excuses away.  It is simple, quick and easy to store.  I  can check it with ease on a regular basis and I love that it will store my readings. 
So if you are like me and need to keep an eye on your or a family member's blood pressure,
You can check it out and order HERE.
It is a great little machine that does big things to help you monitor your blood pressure in order to keep it in a healthy range!
Here's to striving to be the best you!


Disclosure:  I was given the blood pressure monitor as a gift. I was not paid for this review and all opinions are my own.

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
