Biennial medical check-up

My company provides free medical check-up for its employees, annually for those aged more than 35 years, and biennially for those younger than 35. I’ve just collected my medical report – a clean bill of health except for two things:
· I gained 5kg compared to my previous check-up in end 2006 while
· My HDL (good) cholesterol went down from 1.90 to 1.58, while my LDL (bad) cholesterol went up from 2.6 to 3.2 mmol/L.

Most of the excess baggage was piled on over the last few months. My gym plan was derailed since Christmas last year due to various reasons including not at work during the festivities (and hence conveniently skipped gym which is in the same office building), traveling and launching a new product. I’ve been contributing to True Fitness’ profits for nothing!
My clothes were getting tight (heck I couldn’t even fit into some) but kept procrastinating about going back to the gym because we’ve been trying to conceive. I figured there’s not much point in starting my gym regimen, only to have it disrupted again. Unfortunately this has gone on for several months now and there’s still no sign of the stork. And as a result of the lack of exercise, my cholesterol profile and weight went haywire. Oh well! Looks like the answer is obvious, it’s back to the gym I go!

Yeah Mimi...good luck to us.

Mybabybay, good to schedule it this month, less people. If year end, everyone will be rushing to do theirs.

Ooh...I didn't know you're trying too!

I'm enjoying the rest of this year and will only "try" after CNY ;-) ;-)

Kind of impatient sometimes though when I read about other Mummys expecting No. 2!

Kittycat, have been trying for few months now, still no sign of it! Same sentiments here, I see people around me all having their 2nd child already, and many had their 1st child later than I did.
