Mercury Measurements

Filed under: Uncategorized — levyang @ 1:25 am

The other day, I accompanied my wife to buy vitamins and medicines for the kiddos at the Mercury drugstore.  Inside the store, I chanced upon this machine which can supposedly record one’s weight, height, blood pressure, BMI and body fat percentage – all for five (5) pesos.  I lost the piece of paper where the machine recorded my stats but from what I can recall, the following are my measurements as per the machine:

  •  Weight:  164.9 pounds
  • Height:  5’10”
  • BMI: 23.1 kg/m2
  • BP: 121/74
  • Heart Rate: 58bpm
  • Body Fat Percentage: 18.1%
I don’t put much stock into numbers.  All I know is that I’ve never felt this good physically.  And I have to thank Junie for introducing me to this wonderful, wonderful sport of triathlon 🙂
