Brief Answer:
Yes, it is good reading.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for writing to us.

Your systolic value is 124 and diastolic is 80 indicates your blood pressure absolutely within normal limits.
Systolic blood pressure below 140 and diastolic below 100 considered as normal blood pressure.
I would like to ask a query?
Do you have same readings(below 140/90) regularly?
If yes, you need not worry.
Continue same medications.

If you have any queries I will be happy to help you.
Thank you.
