Health Check!

Work had the hospital come in today to conduct a biometrics test.

I am happy to report that I am a shining example of health! I even got smiley faces next to all my test results!

I was slightly worried, that going for a wellness test would produce some sign of un-wellness since I was just doing it for the heck of it.

But, I have lowered my blood pressure, which was good before my recent diet/exercise change. I have excellent blood sugar, cholesterol and my risk factor for cardiovascular disease is 2.7 (the goal is 4.3 or less)

The nutritionist said I am doing everything right as well, and had no advice for me. ME!

The bonus is, that I am only 1.7% short of being out of the obese 1 range and into obese on the BMI scale too. Last year, I was obese 3, despite the fact that I worked out 5 days a week.

I am excited to take the test again in a year and see how much more I improve over the year.

Healthy? Yea, that's me!
