Enlarged Heart

I am 62 years old, female and keep myself active with skiing and the gym. I was just told I had an enlarged heart. Is that to be considered heart disease?  I am already on HBP medication.  Should i expect further regular monitoring?  I get winded walking up an incline then I am fine to even ski. I get tired and my heart rate goes up at the gym when I start exercising but then it stablizes.  Is this all attributed to the enlarged heart?
