Annual body check up



I consider myself not a very health conscious type of person but I did go for body check up every year, just to make sure I have no major serious illness, once I know I don't have any serious illness (touchwood touchwood!!), I'll just keep the reports in the drawer :p (摸木啦,谢天谢地这么久以来的body check up报告都算不错。。。)

So I went for the usual body check up last month, this time I went to BP diagnostic instead of Pathlab. Err no special reason for the change.
This time I took the RM6## package which consist of basic check-up, Hepa B screening, lipids study (cholesterol), Anti HIV screening test, audiometry test (hearing capability), pulmonary test (lungs function), osteoporosis test, ECG, muscle-fat analysis, abdomen ultrasound and some other lady-related health issue test.
(Ok you can actually ignore the tests names, totally :p)

To be honest, this check-up is a bit out of my budget. I remember the usual price range last time is between RM 300- RM 400. But since I am getting more kiasi  health conscious (well, age is catching up), I told myself nevermind (of course, hubby is my ATM machine xD).
Actually I am quite satisfied with I've paid cause this check-up is very detailed.
对我来说是有点贵&不舍得。。不过为了自己的健康,还是检查得仔细的一点比较安心。加上已经做妈妈了,绝不可以让自己有什么三长两短!(CHOI!!! 大吉利是!!干吗讲到酱严重!)

The result, everything is good, except for the annoying cholesterol level. I knew beforehand that my cholesterol level is going to be bad (预咗啦~). It exceed the normal reading about 9%! :0
不过一看到那个胆固醇reading时,差点晕过去。。。没想到会标到那么高!!以前的是高不过还算tolerable, 现在这个真是惨不忍睹。。。过后想想,也有道理啦,谁叫自己那么贪吃,因为目前还没从产后瘦身成功嘛!(哈哈,好一个自我安慰的烂理由 =p)

So, ever since that day, I've decided to control my food intake seriously. Up til today, I managed to shed off 1.5kg in 2 weeks time (well, consider a good start for myself). The saying no pain no gain is indeed very true, I have to sacrifice all my favourite sinful snacks.... T_T It's not easy since I am a food lover, but for the sake of my health and also to be able to look better this coming CNY, I told myself I can and I have to do it.

Of course besides controlling food intake, I attend the aero yoga lessons thrice a week, and invest on some slimming cream. And if things allowed, I actually want to engage in more exercises.

How about you? Do you go for body check-up consistently? ;)

  10. 城市人好像一般都会有胆固醇过高的风险,跟肥瘦没关系,主要是我们日常的饮食太多制成品的原因。
