So I had my health screening today and here are my numbers:
BP: 108/64 pulse: 52
Cholesterol: 108 (HDL: 37, TC/HDL ratio: 2.9)
Weight: 199.2. (When I saw the weight-read on the scale, I had to do a double take. I stammered, “Is that.. is that my weight?” (duh!)). I know it isn’t a HUGE accomplishment by many standards, but for me, it was a mile-stone to be in the 100s again after spending my last 20 years in the solid 200s. Encouraging, to say the least.
They said I was pretty healthy; that a good target weight is 185, that my smoking cessation plan was solid and that my diet was very good. But, they recommended strength training and overall a more well-rounded exercise routine.
Going to sign up for Yoga tomorrow!
