Azure Destinations WEC
Sunday, May 18, 2014
This weekend for my Azure Destinations team we were challenged to essentially measure our current level of health. We measured resting heart rate, calculated our target heart rates, took our blood pressure, found our hip/waist ratio, calculated our BMI, and measured our body parts.
Sorry, friends...there is no way in H-E-double hockey sticks that I'm sharing all of those numbers. They. Were. Frightening.
My BMI and waist/hip ratios weren't a surprise, and better than they were when I rejoined Spark in March, which is great. I JUST measured my body parts (waist, hips, bust, biceps, thighs, and calves) a week and a half ago, so nothing exciting or unexpected there. I am a little nervous that my resting heart rate and blood pressure were above normal...not scary high, but not great; I haven't been able to get a Drs appointment for a physical until June 30, though I'm calling around again tomorrow--I'd prefer sooner if I, even temporarily need meds.
Of course, both COULD be high because I've been on a steroid inhaler for my bronchitis, and the BP COULD be off because I used a machine at Walmart, which isn't always accurate, especially since I should be using a large cuff.
I'm not exactly the model of perfect health, being very plus-sized and all. I'd rather be safe than sorry. I'm really glad we did this challenge because it's pushing me to be more aggressive in finding a Dr for a physical.
