Back from health check

I'm back from my health check. Sorry to disappoint but the place didn't look anything like a resort. It is very pleasant and cosy but it is a hospital afterall. Besides, there were so many people waiting for their turn, this must be the most profitable business to be in right now. A package like mine costs $700 and multiply that by say 30 patients in one morning, no wonder the healthcare industry is booming!

I did a series of tests this morning and have to return for mammogram followed by consultation with the doctor in mid-August. Yup, they're so fully booked, that's the earliest date they could fit me in.

An attractive lady doctor attended to me today. I can tell from the gorgeous black frock she was wearing that she's a fashionista. I found out later that she's also an anti-ageing specialist and senior physician. That means she can give botox and filler treatments too. She said my blood pressure is borderline high. Gee, no improvement since my last checkup a year ago.

While my BMI reading of 24 is within the normal range, I feel it is surprisingly high. Despite eating small meals and running almost everyday, I can easily fall into the overweight category the moment I slacken. My weight has increased 5kg in 5 years. I look at my developed leg muscles and think they probably weigh a ton. In a way, that's a consolation but I guess I'll need to be vigilant and stay disciplined all my life. In case you're wondering who eats all those sinful food in my posts, well, I only indulge on Friday nights and occasionally over the weekends.

The complete results will only be revealed in mid-August. It's going to be a long and painful wait, especially since I woke up with a crick in my neck this morning. Hope I can straighten my neck by tomorrow.

Until then, fingers and toes still crossed.
