My blood pressure has been hovering on the 130/90 reading for almost two months now. At times, it goes up to 140/100.
My cousin, who is a nurse, calls my BP reading ‘high normal’. She says I should stop eating pork. And that I should buy one of those 3000-peso wristband that automatically measures your BP.
The Maxicare doctor, who holds her clinic at the office twice a week, says I should alter my lifestyle and exercise more. She then gives me a list of what to eat, what not to eat. Nalungkot ako sa listahan.
The only time my BP went back to near normal levels was when I joined a 5km fun run AND played tennis doubles for 3 hours straight.
Now, I don’t want to do that on a daily basis. That would kill me. I think I’m going to continue running. Play tennis. Eat healthy.
And start hitting the gym. I want abs. 4-pack abs. Maybe even 6. Or an 8.
