Well, not really. Your blood pressure is too high. However, this could be due to the 180bpm heart rate. This is when you are sitting in a car driving it? Do you suffer from road rage syndrome?

A heavy meal and high ambient temperature can be stressful to the heart.  The metrics you have shown on your post indicates the heart is working harder and that is unhealthful in the long run.  You should contact a doctor for consultation.
