Yesterday I had a health screening at work. I dread this exam every year because I know the results and I do not want to hear a nurse tell me how un-healthy I am. I honestly have been trying to be better about my health. I have been eating better and working out to trying and make my numbers better and make the number on that viscous scale go down. Now I love the way I look but I would also love to fit in the jeans I wore last summer as well. It is only one size, but that is one size I miss.
Now for this screening you are supposed to fast 12 hours before. I followed this for the most part..except I had a few drinks between 7 and 8 p.m. My exam was at 7:40 a.m. So I may have skirted the line on the whole fasting issue there.
I am just gonna give you my results....now I have honestly been trying and I got the same results as last year...if not worst.
Blood pressure 124/68
Now before you go omg you are gonna die on me, I do eat healthy. I do not drink sodas or eat fast food. I have cut all off that out after seeing the lovely results last year. I was told yesterday that I am pre-diabetic and based on last years results and this years that this is a lovely case of genetics since my weight is good and I work our and eat right. So..relatives I thank you. I am not sure what to do at this point to fix these numbers. I am on enough meds for my migraines and blood pressure already that I do not want anymore. Anyone else dealing with this in their mid-twenties?
