My experience says blood pressure can fluctuate a lot. My husband has had a blood pressure problem most of his life. He has white coat syndrome, so we can't rely on what it is at the doctor's office. He was on meds for years, but was able to get off of them by eating right, losing weight, and walking. We noticed that his blood pressure had a pretty direct correlation to his walking. Walking regularly, good blood pressure. Quit walking, high blood pressure. It also helped to take a couple of walks a day rather than one super long one. You're in this for the long term, so focus on the overall numbers, not random outliers. The trend should be going down, with ups and downs along the way.
