Bob Harper is getting his life back on track.
Just weeks after suffering a heart attack that left him in a coma for two days, Harper has decided to make the necessary changes to hopefully prevent that from ever happening again.
Instead of hitting the gym hard, he has been taking a break and sticking to casual walks around New York City.
“I’m gonna miss doing #crossfitopen2017 this year with my #crossfitfamily,” he shared on Instagram. “The only exercise I can do right now is walking KARL.”
According to E! News, Harper is now sticking to the Mediterranean diet at the advice of his doctors.
“Since my heart attack, my doctors have suggested more of a Mediterranean Diet so tonight’s dinner is branzino with Brussels sprouts and I started with a salad,” he wrote on Instagram, adding the hashtag “#heartattacksurvivor.”
Harper is also doing some light “afternoon reading” with his furry friend Karl. He is currently reading “Heart 411” to help learn how to protect his heart after the heart attack.
Karl definitely isn’t far from his side at any time. The first night Harper was “alone” after being released from the hospital, he snuggled up with his pooch.
“Tonight is my first night alone since I’ve been out of the hospital. I plan on catching up on TV and cuddling with KARL. #bestmedicine#heartattacksurvivor #lucky,” he wrote.
According to a source, Harper’s heart attack helped him reevaluate things.
“It has definitely led him to reevaluate things and try to better understand how this happened,” the source told E! News. “Luckily, he is going to make a full recovery, but obviously it is forcing Bob to make some important decisions about his future.”
