Know Your Numbers?

Last Night At Walmart

It’s so easy to check, isn’t it? We just need to focus for minute and do it. Much of the simple, but important stuff in life is like that.

Health Metrics

One of the best ways to know how things are going is to keep track. That almost sounds like a Yogi Berra-ism. But it isn’t. It’s the way I think. And the way we all ought to think about our health metrics.

Some health indicators are harder to come by, like cholesterol and triglyceride screenings. But blood pressure, that’s easy. Many stores (with pharmacies) have free machines. You can check (and double check) in about two minutes. The photo is from our grocery store trip last night.

Why wouldn’t you?

Blood Pressure Tests

Just Do It
Just Do It

Do you know your blood pressure? And do you know your resting heart rate?  How often do you check?  Do you know how and why you have the numbers you do?

Also known as a no-brainer, putting it off and being afraid to know are not good. I check it virtually every time I’m in a Wal-Mart or Publix Grocery Store, for free, at one of those testing stations.

What would happen to your results if you walked five days each week, fitting in 15-30 minutes (or more) each time? And what would happen if you did that for five years in a row?

Did You Know?

Know Your Numbers
Know Your Numbers

Did you know that if you don’t know these numbers (below), there are people like me who question your intelligence?

Do you know your:

  • Body weight
  • HDL & LDL cholesterol
  • Blood pressure
  • Resting heart rate
  • Triglycerides
  • BMI (body mass index)

These are the bare minimum numbers you should know and manage. If you feel uncomfortable with today’s tone, good.

You can wait for your wake up call, or you can anticipate it and manage it before it gets out of control. People who nag you about your health love you.

You knew that right?
