Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Systolic (upper figure) more than 140 needs to be addressed better
Discuss with your doctor / may add a second drug like ARB ACEI, diuretic, Calcium blocker; or stepping up the atenolol…
You should have your lipid profile done / and see a dietician for advice
In the meantime avoid excess salt and saturated fats; No tobacco or alcohol; regular exercise 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week…

Take care     
Wishing all well
God bless
Good luck
