we have this expo thingy at work today and i got my measurements done:
bp - 130/80 - damn flu, was 115/75 last week
glucose - 5.7 (after lunch, which i'm impressed with cause i ate a cheese and bacon roll and another roll with salad on it)
chlosterol - doesn't register, less than 4.8 (already knew that cause my fasting is 3.2)
then i nearly killed the guy from fitness first... this was a classic
i got on their scales just to check weight, said i already knew i was o/weight, etc, etc, and i wanted to check if i had gained any in the last 6 weeks - asked what i had done differently, said i was eating different now, get on the scales, his jaw hits the ground, goes into the gym spiel - my response 'i'm all but 11 weeks pregnant so i'm not real concerned, just want to make sure i'm not gaining heaps of weight' - he asked to see my test results and i showed him, the look on his face was classic - why can't ppl understand that chubbies are healthy too
he asked if he should work out my body fat percentage - i said to him 'i don't think it's really worth your time do you?'
just cracks me up cause he had ASSUMED on the way i look that i wouldn't be healthy and that i would be about to have a heart attack or something similar.
side note - i've gained 500g in the last 10 weeks (when i was on my dr scales) - wow - as my dr said to me, 50g a week for 40 weeks = 2kg for the whole pregnancy (that's my wishful thinking!!) can't see that happenening but a girl can dream
