Repeat after me: "Scales are stupid, health is important."
The nurse went through her obligatory checklist and then did my routine vitals like every other visit. Since having hypertension with my first pregnancy, I've always paid attention to my blood pressure and now ask everytime they take it. I don't settle for 'oh its good,' but rather I want the numbers.
102 / 61
Thumbs up April.
And then that resting heart rate, which is always skewed if your rushed or slammed coffee right before or stressed from traffic.
"You've lost some weight, that great but don't lose too much more" (ignore that part...I am)
"How much are you running now? Your heart-rate looks awesome!"
"eh, my goal this month is 55miles, so its about 12-15 a week?"
"well your body is keeping up and its showing!"
|see note above about the stupid scale|
"but now we need to get your vitamin levels checked...." again.
And lookie loo....
